Unless you can afford the luxury of first or business class, then you know how hard it can be to get comfortable on a long-haul flight.

Whether you’re planning an international holiday, or simply flying from Brisbane to Perth or vice versa, travelling from Australia often means sitting on a plane for extended periods of time.  

This can result in significant discomfort and fatigue to your legs, not to mention an increased risk of blood clotting. 

While we all have our own little tips and tricks to alleviate travel discomfort, arguably one of the best things you can do to keep comfortable during a flight is to wear compression socks. But why settle for a pair of generic compression socks, when you can wear ‘the most comfiest socks in the world’ by Paire? 

What are the benefits of compression socks?

Air travel is a wondrous thing, conveniently taking you just about anywhere you want to go. 

However, the cabin pressure combined with a lack of movement for extended periods of time can certainly take its toll on our bodies, creating circulation issues or exasperating pre-existing medical conditions.

Not only are compression socks a fantastic way to improve circulation in your day-to-day, but on a plane, they make a world of difference, especially when your movement is restricted. 

On top of improved circulation, compression socks help to reduce swelling in your legs, prevent blood clots from forming, and can help bring comfort and relief both during your fight and after. 

Thanks to the compression element, these socks aid and reduce any muscle pain and soreness you might experience from a long-haul flight by helping to reduce inflammation and provide support to your muscles and joints.

Plus, they’re a great way to keep your feet warm and cosy throughout the flight.

What makes these socks different?

Paire’s Compression Socks have fast earned themselves the title of “the most comfiest socks in the world”, and for good reason!

Crafted by a knowledgeable team of textile experts, these socks are made with a blend of sustainably-sourced eucalyptus fibres and premium Australian Merino wool, you won’t find compression socks of this quality at the chemist. 

Featuring a one-of-a-kind 90-degree cut along the heels and toes, these socks give you an anti-slip guarantee (although we reckon it’s always wise to put on your shoes when moving around the cabin, anyway!). 

The anti-bacterial elements of the materials used in the socks assure a sweat and odour-free experience, meaning you can wear them for those super long flights to places like Europe, and not have to worry about upsetting the noses around you!

These socks will have you feeling like you’re walking on the very clouds you’re travelling through, and with the added benefit of compression, they’re a must-have travel item.

But don’t take our word for it, here’s what Aussies have had to say:

“Purchased these socks for long haul flights. The compression is greater than what I have previously worn and yet are much more comfortable. They feel supportive and soft. Comfortable around the toes and foot bed like all Paire socks. As Winter draws near, I will be wearing them as every day socks for warmth and comfort, not just for travelling,” one jet-setter wrote.

“Love, love them! We’ve been wearing them while pounding the cobblestones and travertine in Rome and Venus and the socks have cushioned our feet beautifully,” shares another avid traveller, while another says, “When we travel I have to wear compression socks but have hated wearing them in the past. The Paire compression socks are the most comfortable ones ever.” 

In fact, these socks have racked up such a good reputation, Paire even offers you a 100-day risk-free trial, no questions asked. If you accidentally order the wrong size or simply don’t like them – send them back and get a full refund!
