I’m currently enjoying the feel of a pair of Swiftwick socks as I write this review. Swiftwick makes compression socks for all sorts of sports and activities, not just golf. Swiftwick is proud of their products as they should be. They’re made with the highest quality materials and state of the art equipment, right here in the USA. Not one Swiftwick sock is made in China.
What exactly are “compression socks?” Compression socks are much tighter than standard socks. This compression helps to improve blood flow and circulation. This improved blood flow and circulation increases endurance and helps the athlete perform better with less fatigue.
On The Course
Despite the fabric being a little thinner than many socks I own, the Swiftwick socks provide great comfort when walking the course. I don’t find that my knees or ankles ache or tire during a round of golf, which is a great thing. It must be due to the increased circulation. Tired feet/legs means a weak base which will result in weak golf swings. From there it is a loss of power, accuracy and eventually a loss of confidence.
Off The Course
As I mentioned, I’m wearing a pair of Swiftwicks at the office today. The comfort level is great and my feet feel wonderful, even though I’m trapped in the cubicle. Around town, hiking, or even working in the back yard I feel the benefits of Swiftwicks and their compression.
While I’m not 100% sure a pair of socks can shave numbers off of your golf handicap, they can help aid in performance, comfort, stability, and endurance. Through their compression technology, Swiftwick socks can help prevent score-trashing fatigue and aches.
