How Seniors Are Turning Back The Clock On Aging Feet With A New “Miracle” Sock
We talked to podiatrist Dr. Linda Smith to see if the hype for Zippy Socks was justified. Here’s her take:
“Yes, it’s a comprehensive and long-lasting answer to foot pain. (Zippy Socks) gently compresses arteries and veins to promote healthy blood flow. Furthermore, it acts as a buttress for the entire inferior of the foot—from toe to heel. It’s quickens recovery from foot injuries like plantar fasciitis; while also providing permeability and structural compression for exercise addicts.”
“I urge all of my elderly patients to wear Zippy Socks; not only to alleviate pain, but as a preventative measure to nip future pains in the bud. Really, everyone with a semi-active lifestyle should be using these everyday. They provide support, comfort, and protection against wear and tear.”
“If more people wore these, I’d lose a lot my patients. They simply secure the well-being of your feet.”
Dr. Smith’s endorsement wasn’t enough for us, though—we needed to try Zippy Socks for ourselves.
As an avid runner, Muay Thai enthusiast, and jump roper, I felt compelled to buy a few pairs of Zippy Socks for myself to see what the buzz was about. From the smooth, expedient shipping process (the package reached me in just five days) to my first run with the soothers, I was impressed. They're easy to slip on since they are one-size-fits-all and you can either where them alone or with "normal" socks over them.
My feet are normally knotted and sore after a long-distance run; to the point where I have to stretch and massage them for hours to treat the pain. After a 10-mile bound wearing Zippy Socks, my feet felt like they’d been nuzzled by pillows instead of treading on pavement for over an hour—zero lower-leg fatigue.
Zippy Socks continued to serve me well and keep my feet happy, so I gifted my dad a pair (he’s arthritic and poorly from the early stages on Parkinson’s). He’s often incapacitated from leg pain. When he does move, he dodders and plods. It’s a struggle.
With the help of Zippy Socks (and maybe a dash of magic)—believe it or not—he was dancing like a studly 20-something at my wedding! It was like time travel—it was an emotional sight that inspired him and our family. He’s been more mobile and joyful since.
