Our Legend® Women’s Diamond Dress Socks will not only treat venous conditions and mild varicosities but will also relieve your tired and aching legs and provide the ultimate in comfort and fashion.
The LEGEND® Women’s Diamond Dress Socks are designed specifically for women and promote improved blood flow and circulation while providing superior support and style. They feature an attractive diamond pattern and provide functional support for your feet and legs. Latex free and featuring Y-gore heel and toe pockets for a more natural fit, these compression socks will offer you the most comfortable medical grade graduated compression experience available.
A diamond pattern (also called an argyll pattern) is characterized by diamonds or lozenges. A typical diamond pattern might be criss-crossing lines interposed on solid diamonds. They are a popular fashion pattern for legwear, jerseys, sweater vests and even kinesiology tape.
In addition to their fashionable diamond pattern, these socks are latex free, which ensures freedom from adverse medical reactions for those with allergies to this material.
The socks are made from a moisture wicking microfiber that supports high breathability and helps keep your feet dry and cool throughout the day. In addition, a welt band at the top of the socks helps keep them in place throughout the day (even though strenuous activity) without binding, pinching or marking your skin.
Taken together, these comfort oriented features support better patient compliance and therefore improved treatment outcomes.
The seamless closed toe design makes these socks go nicely with a closed toe shoe. Furthermore, the fashionable diamond pattern design makes them a great complement to a business outfit.
These dress socks come in 2 graduated compression levels: 15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg, and in four sizes: small, medium, large and extra large. Colours are black and khaki.
Tip – it’s better to measure earlier in the day, when there is little or no swelling in your legs. At this time, there is less risk that you will end you with a larger size than you actually need.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
