Orca Killa Kompression Socks

Price £20

Although they're too toasty for year-round use, these Orca socks have plenty going for them, including the fact that they have the very best in padded protection right from toe and midfoot to above the ankle. The graduated compression up the lower leg helps oxygenate muscles during exercise to improve performance, and decent calf-squeeze makes them great for post-run rest, where the support will speed your recovery. As a bonus these also make the ideal flight sock, helping to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis. In short, wearing these is like having your foot cuddled.
