Mediven Compression Socks
Mediven for Men Classic Compression Socks come in Tall and/or Extra wide calf sizes. Big and Tall men often have issues with blood circulation in the leg veins. I had two DVTs 10 years ago and I have been wearing compression socks ever since. For most of that time, I was wearing Jobst Activewear socks with the extra wide calf. Jobst are decent socks-but I had to pull up my socks several times each day, and I didn’t have enough compression around my ankle. I also wore some Therawear socks. See my reviews for both Jobst and Therawear.
Six months ago I decided to try the Mediven for Men Classic Compression socks. You can get tall extra wide socks or tall regular width socks in six different size variations. I ordered size VI, Tall, and Extra Large Calf. It must be complex to manufacture a medical grade sock in so many different sizes and colors!
As soon as I put them on, they felt more comfortable and supportive. The socks pull up to just under my knee, so a bit longer than Jobst. The Mediven socks don’t slip down, and I have the support I need around my ankle but still a good fit for my wide calves. They don’t leave any marks on my legs.
I would often rip my Jobst socks when trying to pull them on. That doesn’t happen with my Medivens.
