Absolute Support
Athletic Compression Socks
Model A1010

Unisex Cotton Compression Socks -  Medium Graduated Support 15-20mmHg - Absolute Support  Value Brand

By far our most popular sock! Natural cotton construction provides a refreshing natural comfort. 
Absolute Support Knee Highs are clinically proven and physician recommended. 
Thicker than our regular nylon/lycra dress socks, these socks are warmer in winter, cooler in summer, and ideal for everyday wear or as an athletic sock for team sports, golf or walking.

Healthier, better feeling legs begin at the ankles - graduated support applies pressure starting at the ankle and gently massages and enhances upward circulation in the legs.

Fiber Content:
80% Cotton, 13% Nylon, 7% Lycra Spandex

Order by shoe size:

  • Small = 7 and under
  • Med = 7.5-10

I'm following my doctors recommendation to wear a compression sock on my left leg which I broke when I was in my twenties. These socks are made of excellent quality material and by the end of the day virtually eliminate the discomfort and swelling in my lower leg / ankle area that I was experiencing. I highly recommend Discount Surgical Stockings.

Several years ago the doctor prescribed compression stockings, but my budget and ego (mostly ego) wouldnt let me purchase, and recently, I thought to myself that I needed to buy, so I checked these out, purchased two pair, and now im about to pick up 4 maybe 5 more pair! Ease of ordering, ease of payment, good materail easy delivery... what's not to like ! ! and my legs and ankles thank me ! ! !

I have worn unisex absolutely support cotton compression stockings for years. They give me the support I need and are very comfortable to wear. ( And they are the best price!) I recommend them to everyone who needs compression stockings.

I wore these socks on a recent road trip and my ankles did not swell at all the whole time. Thats 6 hours of driving a day. Best fit I have had with compression socks.

These are good socks. They are a little thinner than the Absolute Support™ Medium Support Compression Socks with Cushion Foot & Heel. They are a little tight at the top after my legs swell but not to tight. A little better for summer wear due to being thinner. They wear and wash great.

Q & A

Ask a Question
3 questions for this item
Q: i need socks with compression in the ankle area
A: that would be any stocking . the compression starts at the ankle and makes its way up the leg.
Q: Absolute Support sizes by shoe size. I weigh 300 lbs with lg calves. I want the foot to fit, but then will the leg part be way too tight? My calves circumferences are 17 1/2 inches.
A: unfortunately, i would place you in a item that goes by measurments and not by shoe size because it could fit you in the foot area but not in your calf . try A201BL5 this item gives you the features of a extra wide calf and it also goes up to a 5XL.
Q: I used the sizing chart but nothing prepared me for the toe part being so large. do you know why that is?
Questions that are on Your Mind
Q: Can you help me with sizing?
A: You can view the size chart here: size chart
You will need accurate measurements, so first learn how to measure.
Q: What is compression? What is the difference in compression?
A: You wear compression stockings to improve blood flow in your legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots.
Q: What does mmHg mean?
A: mmhg stands for "millimeter of mercury", a way to measure pressure. The higher the number, the tighter the garment will squeeze and the more compression it provides.
Q: How can we wash the garments? And with which soap or detergent?
A: We recommend to hand wash in warm water and air dry. You can use mild soup of the washing solution that we provide such as the jobst jolastic, hosiery mate washing solution, sigvaris liquid washing solution etc. See our full washing instructions.
Q: What is the difference between open toe and close toe?
A: There is no therapeutic difference between open and closed toe socks. The choice is yours, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: What is opaque?
A: Opaque is a thicker material that provides great coverage and your skin will be far less visible. Usually worn in winter because of the thickness.
Q: What is sheer?
A: Sheer is a thinner, dressier material. Customer usually like these because they can use them as dress socks for work or church.
Q: Do I get compression at the toe area?
A: No. Compression begins at the ankle and gradually lessens as it goes up the leg. This reduces pooling in the legs and helps the veins return blood to the heart.
Q: Will a thicker material give me more support than the sheer material?
A: No. The compression provided is measured by mmHg and is the same no matter the material. The choice of material is up to you, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: If I get pantyhose will I get more compression than with a knee-hi?
A: No.
