Here are the steps to follow to put on Odd Duck compression socks:

  1. Choose the right size: Make sure you choose the right size of compression socks to ensure a comfortable fit and maximum effectiveness.

  2. Prepare your socks: Before putting on your compression socks, turn them inside out so that the top band is visible. You can also make sure the sock is straightened out so that the heel is in the right place.

  3. Sit down: Sit down in a comfortable position with your legs bent at the knee.

  4. Put on the sock: Starting at the top of the sock, roll it down towards the ankle. Make sure the sock is pulled up evenly without any wrinkles.

  5. Adjust the sock: Once the sock is in place, adjust it to make sure it fits properly. Check that the heel of the sock is in the right place and that the sock is snug but not too tight.

  6. Repeat: Repeat the process for the other sock.
