    If you're not familiar with compression socks, they're generally used by athletes, long-haul travelers, or people who are on their feet all day.

    So, let me tell you about Physix Gear Sport compression socks, because A LOT of people like 'em.

    Many Amazon reviews are from pregnant women who have experienced swelling in their ankles and feet, and have used the socks to combat the issue.

    And from people who have experienced some kind of serious injury to their legs.

    After reading so many positive reviews online, I decided to try the socks for myself on a 24-hour flight from New York to Sydney, Australia.

    I ordered the S/M size, which is recommended for women with a size 5.5—8.5 foot. I chose the black and beige color scheme because it seemed the most wearable.

    Safely in Sydney after many hours crammed on a plane, I have to say I'm totally sold on these socks.

    Get them from Amazon for $20.50 (available in sizes S/M and M/L in nine color combinations).
