Absolute Support
Athletic Compression Socks
Model A105

Absolute Support Cotton Based Graduated Firm Support/Compression Sock -- Cotton Compression Socks for Men & Women

Cotton Compression Socks - Made in the USA - Firm Graduated Medical Support Socks 20-30mmHg, Unisex, 1 Pair - Absolute Support, Sku: A105

Healthier, better feeling legs begin at the ankles. Graduated compression applies pressure and stimulates circulation at the ankle, slowly decreasing as it travels up the leg. Moderate graduated support gently massages and enhances upward circulation in the legs.

Our unisex cotton compression socks are by far our most popular sock. Natural cotton construction provides a refreshing natural comfort. Absolute Support knee high compression socks are clinically proven and physician recommended. Thicker than our regular nylon/lycra compression dress socks, these support socks are warmer in winter, cooler in summer, and ideal as an athletic compression sock for sports or walking.

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

great price, great service. shipping is always very fast. highly satisfied with this company
Rated 5 by Thomas Olson
These stockings are outstanding. I've purchased them from Discount Surgical for many years and they are always of the same high quality at a very fair price. Although I began to wear them as a prophylactic, they are great just as an outstanding stocking for anyone who likes a knee-high. The graduated pressure means there is NO binding at the top and they stay up perfectly. The cotton is cool and moisture absorbing. These are far better stockings than anything I have ever found in a conventional men's store or department.

Best cotton support stockings for men I have found. Fit is great. So is the support. Last a long time if washed in cold water. Price is very reasonable. They are heavier than most

I've ordered from DSS for several years. Quality of house brand is as good as name brand at a fraction of the price. Customer service is top notch. Never a problem.

My 84 year old mother was hospitalized for back surgery and ended up having 2 heart attacks. Following the hospital, she spent a month in a nursing home regaining her strength and learning how to walk again. I had given her a pair of these cotton support stockings that I had ordered for myself before hip replacement surgery and then never used. I am allergic to nylon and can't use traditional support hose. She absolutely loved them and said that every nurse and aide who helped her get dressed commented about how nice they were and asked where she got them. She asked me to order 2 more pairs for her. Now home from the nursing home, Mom said the visiting nurse that came to her house today also wanted to know where these wonderful stockings came from. They are very soft and comfortable and still provide excellent support. After several washings they still look brand new. A great product.

I find them to be very comfortable. Not hot, not too tight. The boxes for the toes and ankles are great. These socks provide good support; my ankles and shin areas do not swell. This was my fourth order of this cotton sock.
Rated 5 by Paul
I really like these stockings. They fit me perfectly. I had stockings from a different company and they were not as supportive and they wore out in no time at all. These stockings are very good and are made out of good heavy material. The price is also right compared to many others I have looked at.

Q & A

Ask a Question
9 questions for this item
Q: Do they have compression in the toe area
A: no they do not . we only have two ankle socks that have compression in the foot area . all of our other stockings the compression starts at the ankle and makes its way up the leg.
Q: I wear braces for drop foot and need the socks to come up to just below my knee, are these socks tall enough to do this?
A: Yes - they are tall enough. These are to the knee compression socks.
Q: The last time I purchased A104 socks and after just a couple of wearings the heel ripped out of the socks. Would these A105s be a more durable material??
A: I'm really sorry to hear that. If this ever occurs again please call us that way we can help you. Now regarding your question all of our products are durable for 3-4 months. It seems to me that you received a defective pair.
Q: Can I select three different color ifI want to buy three pair at same time?
A: yes, you can select different colors if you want to purchase them a the same time.Just need to add them individually to your cart.
Q: What is the length of these socks?
A: The A105 go up to 18 in.
Q: What is the % cotton on these socks?
A: This Garment is made out of 80% Cotton, 13% Nylon, 7% Lycra® Spandex.
Q: Are these easier to get on and off than the absolute brand thigh highs? I found those very difficult to get on and especially off. Jobst relief are much easier. I was wondering how this product socks compares in terms of putting on and taking off.
A: They are the same when it comes to put them on or take them off, as the compression starts at the ankle and decreases while going up the leg. Some item do seem to be easier to handle because some are made in a 2 way stretch material like the Jobst relief
Q: Some ask for ankle and calf size--where is the chart?
A: The A105 Is sized according to shoe size. This item is more generalized in sizing.
Q: Is there a firm compression sock similar to A105 ?
A: The only similar one that we have and that is unisex is the model A201.
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.
