Health and wellness company, COMRAD has officially launched their debut collection of compression socks with a mission to build awareness of the many health benefits of compression socks and why they’re truly for everyone. Comrad founder Andrew Ferenci sits down with Alyssa Julya Smith to discuss what makes his socks different and what even prompted him to get into the sock business in the first place.

Andrew explains that he spent a lot of time crisscrossing the country in cramped airplane seats or he was seated at his desk for long periods of time and suffered from tired and achy feet as a result. He explains that his physical therapist suggested compression socks for better circulation.

Andrew decided to start his own company when he realize there wasn't really anything out there that was fashionable and marketed to a younger audience. He says it is important for people to know the overall benefits of compression socks and not just the stereotypes associated with them.
