Feet First

OS1st is a family-owned company based in Hickory, North Carolina. Founder David Higgins was at the forefront of the diabetic socks market and he (along with the rest of the team) are responsible for the first patented plantar fasciitis sleeve and the first use of medical compression therapy to help treat foot injuries.

These orthopedic compression sleeves and socks join this tradition with targeted construction that caters to bunion and plantar fasciitis relief. Medical-grade compression offers supportive structure, realignment, and relief for the arch, ankle, and Achilles tendon. A combination of padding and support aims to reduce pain and swelling while also promoting comfort. It’s all made with soft, moisture-wicking fabric that’s breathable and fits with shoes for everyday use and healing.
