More info

After exercise, correct recovery is essential to reduce fatigue, help repair, avoid soreness (DOMS) and prepare your body for future activity. Our recovery socks are designed to help this process. They contain validated graduated compression (18-22mmHg), made with comfortable breathable materials and are designed to look and feel like a normal sock. They are discreet and can be worn comfortably in a variety of settings. Their thickness is comfortable in most shoes.

Stronger compression may be prescribed for a variety of reasons, including injury, certain medical conditions or when the squeeze from Class I is insufficient to improve swelling and other symptoms of venous insufficiency.

These socks are 18-22mmHg in pressure and can help contain swelling in the acute stages of injury. The compression level ensures they will boost your venous return throughout wear, aiding the recovery process.

The VR ProPlus Recovery is the product of choice for recovery and travel for many top sports teams.

If you are ordering these post-injury or on medical advice, you may wish to call our advice line so that any swelling or medical needs can be taken into account when sizing you.

VR PRO PLUS RECOVERY

Bought these after a recommendation from a friend. They are far more comfortable than the stockings prescribed and actually stay up! Pointless wearing the alternatives that just seem to fall down around my ankles.

    Excellent Product

    Blown away by excellent personal service and advice, which was totally unexpected for an online order. Been running with the sleeves and feeling great. Easy to put on and take off and very comfortable. Also used Pro Plus socks for a 12-hour flight; felt great throughout and after the flight. Sleeves and socks look cool too.

      Bought for my other half. Order came the next day. washed well and dried quickly..without spinning or wringing. Of course he hasn't tried them on yet, but they look a much better fit than the previous make.

          VR Pro plus recovery

          I usually have really tight calves due to cycling and being on my feet all day long. I use these socks most evening after working and commuting and they recover much quicker than usual. Great fit, great product. Highly recommended!

            Just what I was looking for

            I've had searched all over the internet for sport socks with indicated medical compression. This website was the only one that met my requirements. I would only recommend to make those socks design more sporty - with more colors and patterns.

                  The email support I received was excellent and gave me greater onfidence that this company really know what they are talking about if buying these socks because of a DVT. I found this model very supportive after and during physical activities such as power walking and cycling.

                    I suffer from chronic muscle tightness in my calves and hamstrings. After a few days of wear of the recovery socks, I noticed a significant decrease in tightness.

                      Don't hesitate. Get some

                      My physio recommended I get these to wear after running. I'm so surprised how comfortable they are. I put them on after running and forget about them for the rest of the day. I've always had a problem with cold lower legs but not any more. They're warm as toast but not *too* hot. Just snug. I'm ordering some more to wear while running. And probably some more to wear afterwards. So pleased with them.

                        Great product. Long term sufferer of cramp in the calfs but after a consistently wearing after football matches I no longer suffer with this problem. Highly recommend.

                          My legs feel good at the end of a busy shift and they stay up unlike others I bought. So far, no oedema. Wear them for dog walking - legs feel less tired.

                              On recommendation from the team at VitalActive, I gave the ProPlus Recovery socks a go for attending some conferences and trade shows. They definitely made a difference at the end of the day, with little fatigue felt after standing all day. A good sock to have in the drawer for these type of events!

                                Having had 2 DVT's which caused major swelling every day from the knee down.I was amazed to find that these socks stopped the swelling and the fatigue that I felt. I wear them every day which allows me to stand for several hours which I was unable to do before.The quality is excellent, they do not ladder and keep their shape.

                                  Normally, I wear the Original Super-Fit socks, but for extra compression, I use ProPlus Recovery. They are strong but comfortable and much easier to put on than other medical-grade compression socks I have tried. If you get the right size, which is easy to do on this website, you will get very effective compression for the legs without any discomfort in the feet and toes. An excellent product.

                                      I purchased these socks to help my recovery from running. I was impressed that I was able to input my measurements and get the correct size sent to me - they are a good fit. They are more comfortable than I expected. I have just completed a half marathon 3 weeks after the London Marathon so the next few days will tell if these are helping, but I'm pleased so far! Also has excellent advice from VR via twitter.
