PRODUCT INFORMATION

STOX Energy Socks are compression stockings that promote the blood circulation in your legs and provide maximum capacity of oxygen to the muscles. This will prevent tired legs and you will feel energetic and strong, all day long.

All STOX Energy Socks work using the STOX Energizing Flow, which consists of so-called ‘graduated compression’. As a result, STOX give a certain pressure on the leg muscles, starting with the highest compression at the ankle. From there, the applied pressure is reduced gradually until it is ultimately performing the least compression on the thigh. The graduated compression allows for an improvement in the drainage of blood and fluid, thereby preventing and/or reducing tired legs and varicose veins.

STOX Energy Socks are made of the most innovative materials, making them extremely durable and have temperature-regulating properties. In addition, all STOX Energy Socks include graduated compression, which improves circulation in the legs and ensures maximum oxygen capacity to the muscles. This prevents tired legs and varicose veins.

Each different type of the STOX Energy Socks has his own benefits.

During your (standing) profession (Work Socks):

  • They avoid tired, achy legs; by maximum oxygen capacity to the muscles
  • They revitalize your legs; by the increased blood circulation

While running (Running Socks):

  • They provide the wearer with more energy; by the increased blood circulation
  • They boost your endurance; by maximum oxygen capacity to the muscles
  • They reduce the risk of shin splints; by the compression which they exert on the shin
  • They ensure less muscle damage; the compression keeps the muscle tissue together and helps reduce shock loads

After a workout (Recovery Socks):

  • They ensure a faster recovery; by maximum oxygen capacity to the muscles
  • They provide more energy; by the increased blood circulation
  • They work effectively with shin splints, calf and Achilles tendon problems; by improving the drainage of blood and fluid

While traveling (Travel Socks):

  • They prevent swollen feet and ankles; by improving the drainage of blood and fluid
  • They regulate the temperature of your legs; by the merino wool in the socks
  • They reduce the risk of travelers’ thrombosis; by the increased blood circulation

For the fashionable look of the STOX Energy Socks collaboration was achieved with textile designer Martijn van Strien, who graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2012. There he specialised in textile design and trend forecasting. His two graduation projects at DAE received wide international praise and recognition. For one of them, he was awarded a prestigious ‘Keep an Eye’ grant during the Dutch Design Week.

STOX Energy Socks are made using highly advanced circular knitting machines. As a result, STOX Energy Socks show superior quality in terms of finish, durability and comfort when compared to socks made by conventional machines.

STOX Energy Socks are made with the most innovative and high-quality materials such as Merino Wool, Milk Fiber and Moisture Wicking Fabrics. These ‘Moisture Wicking Fabrics’ are more breathable than natural fibers like cotton and wool. Cotton retains moisture fourteen times longer than the Moisture Wicking Fabrics. This ensures the STOX socks keeping her form while running, as opposed to damp cotton socks. This prevents skin irritation and blisters. The Moisture Wicking Fabrics ensure that perspiration from the foot is driven to the outside of the sock. Thereby keeping feet cool in hot weather and at better temperatures in cold conditions.

Most of STOX Energy Socks are made in Italy. The other Energy Socks are made in Taiwan, with a factory that meets the highest quality standards and dispose of the most state-of-the-art machinery.

We thought it was time to replace the old-fashioned cotton socks with socks that, besides having a fashionable design and extra breathable materials, also contain a function. This function is fulfilled by the so-called “graduated compression’’ which are incorporated into all STOX Energy Socks. STOX-socks provide a certain pressure on the leg muscles, starting with the highest compression at the ankle. From there, the applied pressure is reduced gradually until it is ultimately performing the least compression on the thigh. The graduated compression allows for an improvement in the drainage of blood and fluid, thereby preventing and/or reducing tired legs and varicose veins.

Our measurements are based on both the shoe size and calf measurements, in order to guarantee the results you should expect from STOX Energy Socks. You can easily find your size through our size wizard.

Several studies have shown that people who wear compression stockings often experience less pain and swollen legs and feet. For example, a large part of the nursing staff experienced less pain (84%) and less swelling of the legs (74%) during work by wearing compression stockings. [1] 93% of runners experienced muscle soreness after a run of 10 kilometers with traditional running socks, while this was only 14% with the runners who wore sports compression stockings. [2] After a 5-hour flight 60% of travelers who wore compression stockings experienced less pain and 45% experienced less swollen legs and feet.[3]

40% of women develop varicose veins during their first pregnancy.[1] One year after the varicose vein treatments of 69 patients, only 6% of the group who wore compression stockings suffered again from varicose veins, while this was 71% of the patients who did not wear compression stockings.
