Compression Socks

Does anyone know of a company that sells good compression socks? I have custom-made socks but I got a bill for $1,400 for two pair and I cannot afford to buy 6 pair per year if they are going to cost $700 per pair. I think it is horrible how much they are charging for those garments.

Hey there,
I found that the elvarex style by Jobst are very good garments. However, they are quite expensive as well. Do you have health insurance?

Sorry, I forgot I posted this link. I do have health insurance but in the end it still costs me about $800 a year for compression socks. I was wondering if a running company or someone of that nature makes a good garment.

Hey Panther

Unless the company knows of/understand LE and the needed compression etc, I would be leery of using their product.

It would be nice to have other manufacturers - maybe it might help bring down the atrocious price.

Good point, Pat! I do notice that my custom garments make me feel much better than any other garment.
