Default Men's Compression Stockings

I did a forum search, but couldn't find much information. Where's the best place to buy mens compression stockings? I've been paying around a $100 a pair at a local drug store.

It's age related. When I travel, I am up at 7am, and I am up walking and standing all day. If i sit down for an hour (like for lunch or dinner) and then try to stand up, that's when the problem begins if I am not wearing compression stockings. My legs get really stiff and I have a hard time walking if I am not wearing compression stockings.

I need at least thigh high or waist high, with minimal compression 10-20 mmHg. I am hoping one of the experienced travelers can help me find compression stockings at a better price. Thanks!

$100 is definitely too expensive; pharmacies around here (West Coast of Canada) offer compression socks and/or stockings for probably half that, if not less. Those are medical grade, too. Have you tried ordering online? You can probably find much cheaper prices.

Default stockings

As rclark said I think $100 is too expensive.

No sure where you live but last week I got to Sydney airport and left mine at home, I only use them for longer haul flights. There was a pharmacy at the airport and I was expecting to pay a bomb for them but AUS$25 was the asking price and I did not think this was too bad a price considering I was at an airport.
