These Are the Cutest Compression Socks You Have Ever Seen

You know what a compression sock is, right? It’s a sock with graduated and strategically placed compression areas (basically, tighter or stretchier fabric) to help promote blood circulation and post-workout muscle recovery. Lots of runners swear by them, and I know a lot of people who use them.

The thing about compression socks, though, is that they tend to be more function over fashion. A typical pair looks like this—kind of, er, perfunctory. Can you say, “Booooooring”?

Since a lot of people wear these things post-workout—oftentimes with their normal, everyday clothes—it makes sense that you might want compression socks that actually look cute, too. Here are seven pairs I would be happy to wear out and about.
