Available in sizes small to XX-Large these sporty ankle socks are suitable for both men and women of all ages. Their light graduated compression of 12/15 mmHg is great for toning and energising your legs, reducing cramp, preventing lactic acid build-up and soothing pain from venous insufficiency and oedemic swelling.

Perfect for tennis and racket sports, cycling and athletics, these lightweight and fashionable compression stockings won’t hold you back when you’re rearing to go! And they’re not just great for exercise; if you have a pre-existing venous condition or often experience tired and aching feet after running around all day, they’ll stop your legs from swelling and worsening sore heels and ankles. These Speedy Compression Socks are specifically designed with sport in mind and will even minimize your risk of developing blisters and calluses.
The reinforced weft absorbs shocks and vibrations caused by exercise, while its transpiration properties ensure your feet always stay dry and comfortable throughout the most strenuous of activities. Designed with breathability in mind, the lightweight fabric helps your skin maintain the perfect temperature in all seasons without affecting its biological balance.
Solidea use silver ion technology throughout their compression garments, which helps kill germs and prevent the onset of bad odours - even after hours of wear. So unlike regular compression stockings, you don’t have to worry about taking them off in the changing rooms!
The extra-flexible fabric makes them easy to put on and take off, while their simple design keeps them durable and discreet! Made using high-tech and innovative yarns that maintain extraordinary elasticity over time, you can wear these stockings time and time again, without them loosing thickness or pliancy.
Solidea’s Active Speedy Socks are designed to increase the blood circulation and reduce fluid retention in your lower legs, in order to prevent the symptoms of venous insufficiency, as well as the appearance of unsightly and painful varicose veins. They use a soft elastic band to keep them in place - without digging into your calves or leaving a mark.
Made with a comfort-knit so soft they feel like a second skin, Solidea’s dynamic legwear will keep your feet feeling fantastic throughout the day!
Why do I need Compression Socks?
As we get older we tend to lose circulation, particularly in our extremities; that’s why you may feel your feet getting colder more often, or even going numb and falling asleep. although it’s a natural occurrence, restricted blood flow can lead to complications if left untreated. In fact, almost 9 out of 10 people will develop a form of venous disease at some point in their life, even though there are simple steps to minimise this risk.
One of the most effective ways to reduce long terms venous complications and relieve symptoms of pre-existing conditions, is to use compression stockings. These control the build-up of excess fluid that cause swelling in the legs and feet by applying pressure to surface veins and muscles where blood is likely to pool. Compression increases arterial pressure and forces the blood through narrower circulatory channels, away from the swollen area and towards the heart.
How is Solidea different?
Solidea’s garments are unique as they use clinically graded compression which is distributed more effectively over the whole lower leg region. Solidea’s stockings are designed to have a higher gradient of pressure around the foot (where gravity naturally causes fluids to pool), with the material gradually loosening toward the top of the sock. This means you can get better, and more targeted circulatory relief without your legs, ankles and feet feeling uncomfortable.
Solidea’s compression-wear is graded according to its level of pressure (mmHg), so you can choose the right range for your needs. Here’s a quick tool for you to see how different compression ranges will help you:
- 8/15mmHg: Very light compression for general relief of tired, aching legs.
- 15/20mmHg: Mild compression for long periods of inactivity like traveling (lowered blood circulation), or times where the body is under stress such as during exercise or pregnancy (pressurised swelling).
- 20/30mmHg: Relief for moderate to severe venous disorders, often prescribed to prevent ulcers, clotting and worsening of skin bulging.
- 30/40mmHg: Relief from severe or chronic venous disorders and swelling, particularly following an episode of DVT or during convalescent periods (such as surgery in the affected area).
Gradient compression stockings are recommended for people who are prone to or suffer from:
- Blood clots
- Lower limb oedema (swelling from fluid)
- Prolonged periods of inactivity or sitting
- Circulatory problems
- Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Varicose veins
- Tired aching legs
- Spider/ thread veins
- ‘Economy Class syndrome’ (ECS)
- Feet swelling during pregnancy
