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 Pharmaceuticals 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.

  • Those who have blood clots already/have a family history of blood clots.
  • Those suffering from or who have had treatment for cancer.
  • Certain blood diseases.
  • Treatment for heart failure or circulation problems.
  • Recent surgery especially on the hips or knees.

Boots Flight Socks Compression Level 14-17mmHg Size 6-9- 1 Pair 5 5 8 8
Comfortable product with peace of mind This socks applied good overall compression to the calves and lower legs, were comfortable to wear, even for over 10 hours' wear, and giving some more peace of mind against the potential dangers of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) during long-haul flights. Overall, a good buy for flying long distances. December 11, 2014
flight stockings. All I was hoping for thank you. I am very pleased with this product. They are lightweight firm and comfortable. If they wear well I may come back for more in the future. December 28, 2015
Don't hesitate to buy these I was concerned that the flight socks may be quite tight and difficult to apply but I was soon reassured when I wore them, they are a great fit and after a seven hour flight my legs felt comfortable and not the least bit puffy or swollen. As DVT is such a health risk to Men and Women of ALL ages I would definitely recommend this product January 27, 2016
