Compression Socks for Nurses

If you're a nurse, we know that your job is no joke. Your profession is physically and emotionally demanding, and many of you work long hours and have high levels of stress. In addition to your regular work hours, you may also be on call or may have to work overtime in order to meet the demands of your job. Spending anywhere from 8-12 hours on your feet, you don't really see much downtime. Although we wish we could carry the emotional, and physically demanding weight of your job for you, we can at least provide you a bit of support and here's how.

Compression socks help to improve blood circulation and reduce swelling by applying gentle pressure to the legs. On your long shifts, we are consistently hugging your feet. This pressure helps to move blood and other fluids through your veins, reducing the risk of blood clots and deep vein thrombosis. Allowing you to do your job and keeping you from becoming the patient. Additionally, compression socks can help to prevent varicose veins, leg cramps, and other symptoms that can arise from standing or walking for long periods of time. By wearing compression socks, you can help to keep their legs feeling comfortable and supported throughout the day, which can improve their overall well-being and reduce their risk of work-related injuries.

Let us be your helping hand on your long shifts.

Are you a nurse, or do you have a friend or a loved one that works in healthcare? Here are our top Apolla picks for you ! 

Mid-Calf Compression Sock

The Infinite hits mid-calf has graduated compression up the calf giving the calves a snug hug. If you suffer from shin splints or calf aches you will fall in love! They stay up and you will love how long the high-quality compression lasts. They of course have the same effective arch and ankle support that all our socks provide. Our toe box is seamless and provides plenty of room for wide feet. Additionally, our knit-in energy absorption padding is in the heel AND the ball of the foot. 

Compression Crew Sock 

This crew style profile is not just a compression is a massage for your feet! The Performance style has a softer opening so it sits comfortably just below your calf while providing incredible comfort and support for your arches and ankles. They stay up and you will love how long the high-quality compression lasts. Our toe box is seamless and is not too thick in a shoe while providing space for wide feet. Additionally, our knit-in energy absorption padding is in the heel AND the ball of the foot.​​


Knee High Compression 

The NEW knee-high profile testing phase has been a HUGE success! The perfection of a knee-high profile with our patented arch and ankle support, energy absorption, graduated compression that lasts, blister protection, antimicrobial, moisture-wicking, incredible comfort, and made with sustainable yarns! All the quality you have come to expect from Apolla Socks!

We hope to have this available for purchase in the next couple of months, so please leave your email and we will let you know when it is in stock for purchase!
