These light compression socks incorporate infrared technology that work with your body heat to improve circulation, which may speed up healing, and ultimately help you recover faster. I’ve been using the Over the Calf (OTC) TrueEnergy for a few months now as a recovery compression sock after snowboarding and for other exercise routines (mountain biking and weight training) the mild graduated compression is good, and I never felt the compression was too heavy on my calves where I’ve noticed pain in other socks.

TrueEnergy OTC compression socks after approximately 15 days of use

The socks are comfortable. They have anti-odor properties and moisture control as well, so they don’t stink and wick sweat away from your skin. I’ve worn the OTC compression socks all day and I felt they made a difference in my circulation while sitting and standing. I never felt as if my feet and calves were fatigued.

The heel and toe are reinforced, which I appreciate since I’ve had to replace several other brands compression socks after about 10 uses, not these. The TrueEnergy socks have held up well in boots, casual shoes, and skate shoes. I’m impressed with their durability. For the price ($19.99) you get 2 pairs of socks which is generous for a set of compression socks in this category.

Overall Impressions:

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced compression sock you can wear all day and also help your circulation during and after workouts, TrueEnergy OTC socks are a good option. I’ve noticed a difference with these socks for a faster recovery and appreciate their minimalistic look.
