Scholl Flight Socks Silky Black:
Long periods of inactivity, combined with the cramped conditions and dehydration which occur on long journeys, can cause a number of circulatory problems including Deep Vein Thrombosis. Scholl Flight Socks Silky Black help restore healthy circulation through graduated compression within the stockings. They also help prevent swollen ankles and tired aching legs and can reduce the risk of DVT.
