Boots Flight Socks Compression Levels 14-17mmHg have clinically proven compression levels which helps reduce the risks of flight related DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). Prevents swollen ankles and leg discomfort. Suitable for flights and long journeys.

Why wear Flight Socks?

Circulatory problems such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), and fluid build up, can occur when you spend any long period of time inactive, for example on long distance flights or journeys where conditions can be very cramped.

Boots Flight Socks offer a clinically proven level of compression (14-17mmHG at the ankle), which helps to increase the blood flow, therefore reducing the risk of circulatory problems including flight-related DVT.
