I actually left this as it was. “Compliments of” is used as “formal and respectful recognition” of the attributes, not “in praise of”. (see Merriam-webster.com)
Ah yes you are correct, thanks.
But now it makes me actually look at the phrase. "Is compliments of" refers to praise. This actually should be more like, "The compression part of the socks is achieved by way of the 29% Nylon and 7% Spandex materials in the construction"
