Faster recovery with SmartWool’s PhD Compression socks

SmartWool, the Steamboat Springs based manufacturer of Merino Wool apparel have an impressive range of socks. Their latest addition, the PhD Run Graduated Compression is, like its name suggest, a PhD sock with added compression for faster recovery.

Athletes recovery time can be boosted by compressing which improves the blood flow and in turn helps keep muscles oxygenated. It also stimulate the flushing of the lactic acid that formed during exercise to minimise swelling and soreness. Add to that the great natural properties of the Merino wool: fast drying, great temperature control and unmatched odour resistance.

High impact areas are covered with ReliaWool Technology for enhanced durability and protection. We can tell you it works. Like in all PhD socks, SmartWool added the performance enhancing 4 Degree Elite Fit System, elastics that wrap around the foot for comfort as well as ankle support.


The PhD Run Graduated Compression socks are available now in four different colours for around £18 / 35$.
