How Compression Works
Graduated compression hosiery has been widely proven to improve symptoms of discomfort, swelling, fatigue and aching of the feet and legs. Graduated compression puts revitalizing pressure on the veins to improve blood flow and circulation. Medical professionals have long recommended compression to patients looking to improve blood circulation and overall health of their legs.
Compression Therapy utilizes graduated compression technology, which mean the most concentrated compression (or pressure) begins at the ankle and reduces further up the leg. Compression hosiery and socks apply pressure to your legs to help the veins in your legs carry blood back to the heart.

LEGEND LEGWEAR™ Compression Knee High Socks & Sheers are a perfect solution to mild swelling in the feet and ankles.
Athletes rely on LEGEND compression clothing to improve performance during and after rigorous exercise. LEGEND® Compression Sports socks apply gradient compression in the legs allowing for increased oxygen levels, blood circulation and reduced muscle vibration that can cause injury. More oxygen means more power during sporting activity and faster recovery. Learn more about The Power of Compression.
LEGEND® Compression Wear produces the finest sports compression socks and sleeves on the planet.
Here are the many benefits of LEGEND Sports Compression:
During Sporting Activities
- INCREASES PERFORMANCE
Increase oxygen levels mean more power and endurance.
- IMPROVES BLOOD CIRCULATION
Graduated compression pushes de-oxygenated blood from the veins back to your heart and allows the flow of oxygen-rich blood back to your legs resulting in faster recovery.
- DECREASES THE RISK OF DVT
Compression levels (mmHg) provide the optimal pressure to reduce the risk of blood clots, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and swelling in ankles, legs & feet.
- REDUCES MUSCLE FATIGUE
Limits muscle movement to reduce vibration during exercise.
- INCREASES RESPONSIVENESS
Compression to the body increases the body’s awareness for improved position, responsiveness and strength.
- REDUCES INJURY
Reduces vibration, increases oxygen and removes lactic acid to provide all athletes with calf support & fewer cramps, shin splint relief and decreased fatigue.
- REDUCES SORENESS
Helps eliminate blood lactate in the muscles to reduce soreness and revitalize muscles.
- ACCELERATES RECOVERY & HEALING
Graduated compression accelerates the recovery cycle by enhancing the action of the body’s vascular system.
WHY WEAR COMPRESSION?
All muscle cells need oxygen to perform at their best. When muscles have oxygen, it translates into power and energy. Oxygen is carried to the muscles though the blood and vascular system. Graduated Compression enhances blood circulation in the body providing your muscles the oxygen and nutrients they need to perform at their greatest potential. LEGEND Potential.
