Vim & Vigr sought to create cute compression socks and has certainly succeeded. They make socks in dozens of designs and colors for men and women.
Vim & Vigr compression socks use a 15-20 mmHg compression level, which is good for wearing everyday, all day, in addition to during travel. Higher compression levels are currently in the works.
The cotton socks feel like your standard compression socks and are tough to pull up like a pair of tights. The nylon are more breathable, closer resembling stockings.
I loved the many designs Vim & Vigr offers like stripes, polka dots and gingham prints. They are compression socks that are actually cute so you can make them both a part of your travel outfit, as well as your day-to-day travel wardrobe.
