Specific golf socks for performance?

I wanted to reach out to see if there is such a thing as “Performance Golf Socks”. Are there any socks specifically made to help with your feet not getting tired while walking. I know there are shoes but what about socks to help with circulation? Is there such a thing?

If so, would it be worth while to do a review on those socks?

As @jlukes pointed out, compression socks are the only socks that will help with circulation.  I have some edema and circulation issues and can attest that they definitely help (more for my legs than my feet, but they kind of go hand in hand).  When I choose not to wear compressions socks, which is more often than I should, I wear Bombas performance socks.  They have good cushion and nice arch support (they are foot specific and marked L and R).  A bit on the higher price end, but they will outlast the cheaper socks and most sports socks like Adidas and Nike.

As the @jlukes and @CarlH noted - compression socks, not a great look wearing shorts but guess they do the job. I'll give another shout-out for Bombas. I've had 6 pair for the past 3 years and I play well over 150 rounds a years. There are no signs of wearing out and other then very slight fading they look brand new. I also found that they're the only ones I've used that fit my feet (size 12) and don't ride down in the shoes.

I just received an email from a company that sells golf specific socks called voxxgolf.  Finally a sock that will give you more distance and accuracy (so they claim). Ultra comfort and support, moisture wicking, more stability and power due to added arch, ankle, and heel support. Hey I'm just stating what their site says. I have not tried these. But the timing of the email worked with the thread topic.
