Injury due to knock hard enough can indeed cause the feet to swell. This swelling occurs due to edema, namely interstitial fluid seepage that is triggered by post-injury inflammation. In addition to swelling, this condition will generally be accompanied by pain, redness, and feet that feel warm and difficult to move. In more severe injuries, this swelling can also accompany deeper tissue damage, such as ligament rupture, joint dislocation, fractures, and so on.
The use of socks that are too tight can cause a lack of smooth blood flow back from the lower limbs to the heart. As a result, the feet can become swollen. This disruption of blood flow can also be caused by standing for too long, excessive bending of legs, and wearing shoes or pants that are too tight. However, if purely happened because of this, the swelling should be reduced once you no longer use socks.
Aside from injuries, swelling in your legs can also occur due to other triggers, for example infections (eg cellulitis, filiariasis), varicose veins (incompetent valves in veins in the legs), hormonal changes (in women such as pregnancy), arthritis, heart problems, kidney disorders, insect bites, benign or malignant tumors in the legs, and so on. To distinguish each of the possible causes of this swelling, you need to see yourself directly to the doctor, especially if this swelling appears accompanied by other complaints, such as extreme pain, impaired sensation (such as tingling or numbness), difficulty in moving the feet, bruising or bluish, and so on. Could be, the doctor will do other supporting tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, laboratories, and so on.
