Brian from Nabee Socks made the following comment on the post Socks:
Have you ever tried compression socks for travelling? They help prevent swelling and discomfort in your feet during long flights. If your interested in a free pair, feel free to e-mail me or check out my website.
I had politely declined his offer especially that I had no plans for traveling too soon but I asked Brian whether he would like to setup a giveaway on my blog. He agreed and here it is:
3 pairs of compression socks for the readers from the U.S. and Canada.
Initially the giveaway was only for the US readers but I asked Canada to be included as well ready to say: “If there is no Canada, there will be no giveaway on my blog!”.
Enough that we pay for the same products more – see Cross-border shopping (a sort of travel) – the discrimination has to stop here .Did you know that Kindle is 89 CAD on amazon.ca and 69 USD on amazon.com and the Canadian dollar is at parity with the United States?! I bought a Kindle from a store and after a while (within 30 days) I returned it to protest against the price discrepancy.
Now a few more details about the Nabee compression socks.
Why compression socks for frequent flyers?
Being confined to your seat over a long flight can cause fluid to accumulate in your legs and feet. This is because your calf muscles usually act as a pump to help blood circulate back to your heart. However, when your legs are not moving, fluid begins to pool in your feet. This can lead to swelling, pain, and even a dangerous type of blood clot called a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Compression socks solve this issue by placing pressure at your ankles and slowly releasing this pressure as the socks go up towards your knees. The added pressure applied to your legs and feet promotes venous blood circulation, preventing all of the aforementioned issues.
What makes Nabee Socks better than other compression socks:
Larger sock opening without any loss of compression – Makes putting on Nabee Socks easier
Comfortable toe box – Non-irritating seams and loose toe box to prevent any squishing of toes
Quality – Our manufacturer is FDA registered and has over 20 years of experience manufacturing medical grade compression garments
The rules for the giveaway are simple:
1. Leave your first name and first letter of your surname as your name in the comment;

That’s it, no liking on Facebook, tweeting, writing stories, spamming your friends so they would vote on your story, photo, video, audio, etc.
