Who is Tommie Copper and What are Compression Socks?

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


So just who is Tommie Copper, and what in the world are compression socks? Well, to answer the first question, Tommie Copper, was founded in 2010, and is a company that specializes in creating and selling compression wear that is not only effective, but attractive too. All of their garments are made with CopperZnergy, a proprietary fabric infused with copper and zinc, which eliminates odors caused by microbes on the fabric. Ideal for socks, right?! But more about that in a minute.


Tommie Copper is also a company that gives back via the Tommie Cares Foundation. This is a not-for-profit organzation designed to build community, possibility, compassion and understanding by helping those with physical and developmental special needs. The program helps individuals gain confidence and strengthen self-esteem by encouraging participation in real-life adventures with the assistance of local volunteers. Visit tommiecares.org to learn more about how Tommie Copper is reinventing the word community.

Now, about those socks! Runners have long ago learned the benefits of compression socks, and now people are beginning to use them every day. Work long hours? On your feet a lot? Need to keep those tootsies feeling pampered when they're stuck in dress shoes all day? Are you an athlete who wants/needs only the best quality of compression when you move? Did you answer, 'yes' to any of the above? Then Tommie Copper offers a solution to you, in a great variety of ways. Just about any kind of sock you want or need, they have them, with compression.

Lightweight Athletic Compression Socks
Available in Men's or Women's
Choose from a Variety of Colors

Take for example, the Women's Lightweight Athletic Compression Ankle Sock. They come in a variety of colors, and they maintain their shape even after you've washed them a gazillion times. Important to note: These socks do run small. I have a pair that fit, but barely. I love my socks, but I would def. suggest ordering the next size up with these. The socks are light as a feather and comfortable to wear all day.

Lighter-than-air without sacrificing durability. Our low profile ankle sock provides support and compression in 3 key zones: ankles, Achilles, and arches. The unique Y-heel gore makes for a seamless connection between foot and sock. The 2x2 mesh vapor top adds breathability without bulk, for extended comfort and benefits.
  • CopperZnergy blend eliminates the growth of odor causing microbes on the fabric
  • High performance comfortrel fibers are soft, durable and maintain their shape wash after wash.
  • This fast drying fiber resists pilling, shrinking and fading
  • Arch compression to target stress & strain points
  • Aids in muscle recovery
  • Helps relieve aches & pains
  • Low profile tab top


Wool Compression Socks available in Men's or Women's
Charcoal or Black, Over-the-Calf or Crew

Tommie Copper also sells Over-the-Calf or Crew Wool Compression Socks. They have these in sizes for men and women. These are thicker than the athletic socks described above, and they keep your feet feeling cozy and happy throughout the entire day. They are sold in black or charcoal. I like these for when I'm wearing trousers to work. I also like them for weekends when it's chilly outside. They are already great, but they would have been amazing when I lived up North!

Our Wool sock combines nylon and spandex for durability and compression. The premium 19.5 micron wool is softer and more comfortable against the skin. The temperature regulating and wicking properties make this the perfect sock on warm summer days or cool winter nights.
  • Targeted zone compression in the arch, heel and Achilles for all-day comfort and support
  • Graduated compression up through the calf.
  • Temperature regulating & wicking, great for all climates
  • Nylon-reinforced heel and toe enhances natural durability of wool and reduces pilling
  • Patented Lonati™ sewing process creates the flattest toe seam available for greater durability.
  • CopperZnergy blend eliminates the growth of odor causing microbes on the fabric and provides UPF 50+ protection
  • Reduces swelling & inflammation
  • Reduces pain & discomfort

MicroModal Compression Dress Socks
for men or women; over-the-calf or crew; color choice

These MicroModal Over-the-Calf Dress Socks are ligher than the wool socks. I wear them in place of tights or panty hose with my heels when I'm wearing trousers to work. They're comfortable and look stylish, and at the end of the day, my feet feel good. There is a definite difference to be noticed when I do wear them, versus when I don't. These are available in men's or women's versions, and you can also get the Crew Sock version.

The perfect dress sock; combining function, fashion and feel. The MicroModal® Compression Dress sock is a stylish sock that feels luxurious to the touch, while providing just the right amount of comfortable compression, for all day support , at home or while traveling.
  • Easy to slip on, with a stay-top band that keeps them in place.
  • Intelligent arch support targets the stress and strain points of your foot.
  • MicroModal® is ultra soft, smooth and luxurious.
  • CopperZnergy™ technology eliminates odors caused by microbes on the fabric.
  • From the office to the train - great for everyday use and travel.

I do recommend Tommie Copper products. I have nothing but good things to say about my experiences with them. If you like this particular pair, I do have a giveaway running (made that big font, so you wouldn't miss that giveaway!) for them on the blog (men's or women's, 2 winners!). It ends in two days though (3/31), so hurry over to enter

  17. I use compression socks though most of the time I just use compression sleeves to allow more mobility in the ankle. Compression socks can really help especially when you have long walks or standing most of the time during the day.
