Vim & Vigr, maker of compression socks, partnered with influencer Madison Shreve on its limited-edition Spoon Theory compression socks to support patients with chronic diseases.

Madison Shreve suffers from POTS, a form of dysautonomia. She said, “The Spoon Theory shows the difference in energy levels between chronically ill and ‘healthy’ individuals. This theory has helped me so much when explaining my low energy levels to friends and family.”

According to the Spoon Theory, “People with a chronic illness or disability require more energy, or spoons, to accomplish everyday tasks while taking more breaks throughout the day than an average person. The phrase ‘sending spoons’ offers encouragement and signifies sending energy.”

“Vim & Vigr is proud to leverage our platform to help raise awareness for chronic illnesses this July with our Spoon Theory socks co-designed with Madison,” said Michelle Huie, founder of Vim & Vigr. “Many individuals in our community use compression socks as a stylish way to boost wellness and to help lessen some symptoms associated with chronic diseases like dysautonomia, lymphedema, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and so many others, and we are so happy to represent them with this new design. Madison is a passionate advocate and an inspiration for those tackling a chronic illness as part of their daily lives.”

Vim & Vigr Spoon Theory graduated compression socks are designed for all-day wear, are available in two compression levels, 15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg, are made with 91% nylon/9% latex-free spandex, and are constructed with a seamless toe box.
