NEW YORK, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Soxxy announced today that Etihad Airways is selling its popular Nighthawk style compression socks on all flights offering Duty Free. Soxxys are available in BOUTIQUE, Etihad's Onboard Shopping Guide for $35USD/AED129. These unisex travel compression socks are designed for men and women to increase circulation, decrease swelling and muscle soreness while reducing the risk of blood clots (DVT).
"We are delighted to partner with Etihad," said Soxxy Founder, Sarah Stabile. "They are a leader in innovation and passenger experience with flying nannies, chefs, butlers and The Residence. Investing in wellness for passengers and crew makes sense because the more comfortable everyone is in-flight, the better they feel when they reach their final destination."
Soxxys provide ultimate stretch, recovery and breathability. They are made from the highest quality yarns (85% Ultra micro nylon, 15% Lycra spandex). Soxxy's Nighthawk style is a navy blue knee-high (15 - 20 mmHg) with red toe and heel boxes and a white airplane near the top band. The "Nighthawk" name is reminiscent of both the nocturnal bird and the single engine stealth aircraft by Lockheed-Martin.
Soxxy was founded by Sarah Stabile after injuring her knee in a ski accident. Sarah was prescribed compression socks by her surgeon who strongly advised she wear the hideous hosiery, especially when she flew. As an independent marketing consultant for Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America, Air New Zealand, Air Asia and Panasonic Avionics, she spent a great deal of time in the air. Sarah loved the way the compression socks made her feel, but hated the way they looked. On a business trip to Asia, Sarah sketched stylish, colorful designs, met with a sock agent, produced samples and the business was born. Soxxys are sold onboard airlines, in airports, gyms, hospitals, medical clinics and online at Soxxy.com.
