Your current Webfilter Category is set to none which blocks most government sites.......maybe you can change it so I can shop at work. Have a shirt with a pocket under the arm so I can run/bike and carry my gun.

If anyone is on the fence about these take my friends comment into consideration.

me-dude greg i know from e46 started a compression apparel company.
like shorts and ****
the guy that basically helped me put together my gym

Him-oh yeah. compression socks saved my life

My friend had a pulmonary embolism from constant long flights. The blood clot broke lose and went into his lungs and almost killed him. His doctor told him that he has to keep moving and wearing compression socks can help. So far he is improving since wearing this stuff.

Hi - No, they are not. This was a conscious decision on our part after talking to some people in the medical field that explained to us why graduated compression can be somewhat of a farce unless you have almost perfect, cookie cutter, foot size to calf circumference ratios. In other words, a size medium graduated compress sock may provide graduated compression if you wear a size 9 shoe and have 15" calves. Conversely, with that same shoe size and 17" calves (like me), they aren't going to provide graduated compression.

As a result, we decided to have non graduate compressions (which are cheaper to manufacture) and keep the costs lower to our consumers.

If you do have very normal foot / calf ratios and would like any recommendations for a good brand of graduated socks let me know.

Thanks for the question.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

We don't, but I will make a note of it for future consideration. I have a list of a few innovative products to consider once we have reached a point where everything is stable.

Its a nice baselayer, but its not the fleece lined stuff like underarmour's cold gear. I definitely prefer it to long under wear.

The socks are perfect as a ski / snowboard sock.

Might be tough to make something like that. They make socks for them already and I dont know how much more compression you could get on the toes. I think most people would just go for compression calf sleeves and go barefoot.
