I’ve been wearing Alpha Sole socks since I had a total knee replacement over 3 years ago. I wear them virtually every day and have found them easy to put on and take off and wonderfully soothing on my legs. I wear them sitting around the house, shopping, on long walks – everywhere! Although I haven’t been traveling during the COVID pandemic, I expect that they’ll also work great as travel socks for flying and touring. But I’m mostly excited that FINALLY Alpha Sole came out with a model in all-black, which I had been requesting for some time. They seem just as effective as the ones with copper colored sections and work MUCH better with a range of shoes. THANK YOU, Alpha Sole, and please don’t even THINK of discontinuing them!
