If you mean the socks you see in drug stores, grocery stores and such, I feel they are worthless.
Those I tried are not compression socks and tend to be poorly made.

Course, the folks who sell the socks have a different perspective:

I have used compression socks - but they are expensive which is the main drawback. They used to
be $15 to $20 a pair for moderate to high compression - but recently I have seen prices north of
$75 a pair! The compression socks help circulation - but also the compression can cause problems
if you experience swelling in the legs. DW uses a dual wrap compression sock that has an
elastic outer wrap which can be adjusted to the compression needed. Again they are pricey but
she has fought off years of leg problems (less her feet than her calfs).

You might consider seeing a podiatrist - they can fit you with shoes and recommend socks.
