Sock Hall of Fame: Sockwell Circulator Compression Sock

Sockwell Circulator Moderate Compression
Knee High Socks SW1W & SW1M



The Skinny

The benefits of compression based socks are endless. From relief of minor to moderate swelling, to flying and travel, compression socks are helpful for everyone. Sockwell is a leading brand in compression based socks, and their most popular sock, the Circulator, is this week’s entry into our Sock Hall of Fame! Accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association, the Circulator is a great choice for those looking for a sock to ease everyday issues.

What’s most special about Sockwell’s Circulator socks is that they not only have a therapeutic function, but are also spun with high-performing and good-feeling cashmerino/bamboo rayon yarns in fresh stripes and colors. The time of wearing boring compression socks is gone! The Circulator socks are enjoyable to wear and bypass that medical feeling which is a side-effect of so many therapeutic socks out there. The Circulator effectively improves blood return from your legs and feet back to your heart. Blood return is proven to speed recovery, maximize circulation, and reduce fatigue. Trust us, your feet and legs will thank you!

Customer Reviews

I’m a nurse who is on her feet 10 hours straight and since discovering these Sockwell socks I’ve not had anymore aching, tired feet or legs. Just about everyone in my department wears them.  -Donna C. 


Definitely not your grandmother’s compression socks. These are very comfortable and offer a generous amount of compression in the correct areas. Very stylish! -Diane N. 


These Sockwell compression socks may be the best I’ve ever owned. They looked like they were going to be too short when I pulled them out of the box, but the way the top half of the calf stretches is perfect and they reached my knee. They truly give you graduated compression. Many pairs of compression socks I have are tightest on the calf, and that’s not technically want you want. These socks give tighter compression around the ankle area and are slightly less tight as they move up the leg. In addition, they are soft, the perfect amount cushion, and appear to be very well constructed. -John W.


These are a great alternative to support socks at this stage in my recovery from a severe break in my leg (near the ankle) Helps with the residual swelling, and otherwise great all around support and comfort – easy to get on, too! -Carol H. 


I have purchased these Sockwell socks for my daughter for Christmas for the last couple of years. She is a nurse and the compression socks are great for her being on her feet all night. I appreciate the selection! -D.M.
