Why wear Boots Flight Socks?

Circulatory problems such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), and fluid build up, can occur when you spend any long period of time inactive, for example on long distance flights or journeys where conditions can also be very cramped. Boots Pharmaceuticals Flight Socks offer a clinically proven level of compression (14-17mmHg at the ankle), which helps to increase the blood flow, therefore reducing the risk of circulatory problems including flight-related DVT.

  • Those suffering from or who have had treatment for cancer.
