Whether you’ve worn knee high compression socks for years or you’re taking a crash course in compression socks 101, learning how to put on compression socks the right way will save you from a lot of stretching, pulling, and wondering why your heel didn’t make it into the heel pocket.

We recommend following the four-step process above when putting on compression socks in knee high.
