Smartwool PhD Socks offer a 4 degree fit system to provide an unparalleled secure, comfortable fit PLUS each PhD sock uses a Wool-on-Wool technology that replaces nylon at high impact zones with more merino wool. The result is a new Smartwool PhD sock that blends a high performance fit with select ultra light cushioning to keep you comfortable, no matter the activity.
Graduated compression technology applies varied pressure from the ankle to the knee, aiding in circulation and increasing blood flow back to the heart. So the legs don't swell and the body recovers faster. There are different levels of compression that are measured in millimeters (mm) of mercury (Hg), or mmHg. The higher the mmHg number, the more compression there is. Our SmartWool Graduated Compression socks combine the performance-enhancing benefits of Merino wool with the recovery-enhancing compression technology.
