I travel a lot with my job, flying three or four times a month. Sometimes I can be sat in airports or on aeroplanes for hours at a time. I noticed that at the end of some flights my ankles and feet were swollen and stiff and continued to be so for most of the next day. This puffiness would subside over 24 hours but caused me discomfort and looked ugly. My doctor reccomended I invested in some Flight socks. I went to Boots the Chemist and bought some. They cost me £8.99 for a box with two pairs in. This was about three years ago. I was lucky because I was able to use my Boots Advantage points to pay for them. They now cost £12.99 for ...

I have always had problems with my left leg swelling around the calf area. Whenever I go on holiday, both of my lower legs swell as well, normally due to the warm weather, so I am conscious when flying and sitting for long periods.

=Boots Flight Socks= I first purchased Flight socks back in 2001 when I flew long haul for the first time, and over time the elastic of the socks have wore away. Two years ago I was flying long haul, although I had upgraded to premium class, so had a bit more leg room, I invested in a pair of flight socks from Boots, I paid £12.99 for mine. =The Theory= The theory behind the history of flight socks, is that they work to help keep the blood flowing around your legs and ankles, and this in turn then helps the rest of the body to pump blood, therefore reducing the risk of a blood clot. I will say that having flight socks does not stop ... Read the complete review

My mum has a history of heart and blood circulation problems so, last year, when she decided to embark on a massive around the world trip to Australia, i recommended she bought a pack of these, and they certainly did their job. Although at first, i was massively shocked by the price of these items. Coming in at £12.99 for just one pair ( i had initially been told that you got about 3 in a pack! This is not true) they were definately some of the most expensive socks that i have ever seen. However, when we got them home and took them out of the box they looked like the real deal, and after some internet research we realised that they limit ... Read the complete review
