    Medical quality compression socks, no matter if you call them "medical socks" or "flight socks", do similar things. There will be vast differences in quality and the amount of compression, so you always have to choose carefully. Cheap pairs will lose their elasticity quickly, won't stay up, or won't have enough compression, so if you have vascular issues or edema issues, don't skimp on your compression garments.
