As we know, compression is all the rage right now. It has taken our running and endurance activities to another level by helping us recover faster and get back out on the trail sooner than ever before, to push harder and get results. Compression works.
There are various compression products on the market. Last week we talked about compression shorts, this week we will focus on compression calf sleeves. Regardless of where you run or race, you will see colorful compression socks or sleeves on many runners.
I personally prefer calf sleeves when I run which is why I was super happy to see them recently added to the Pro Compression line up. I’m very picky about my running socks. I wear one brand and its a little thicker and cushier than the normal “ultra thin” running sock. All my running shoes are laced to fit that particular sock and compression socks are not the same thickness. So I prefer the sleeves while running in order to reap the benefits of compression and still be able to wear my favorite run sock. Then I wear the full compression socks for after run recovery and traveling. 🙂
According to the Pro Compression website:
Your feet and legs are your engine. Anything less than peak performance and full recovery means unnecessary discomfort while operating at less than your best. Change all of that with the advanced design and materials that make PRO Compression socks your ultimate recovery tool…..
PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood. The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference.
I was super excited to try out the Pro Compression calf sleeves. I know their calf sleeve line is new but they know compression. If I’m going to wear compression socks to work around the house with my slippers, Pro Compression socks are my first choice. So I was ecstatic to try out the calf sleeves for running.
I love them. I love that they are green. I love that they fit like a glove. I love that they are green. I love that they didn’t move when I ran. I love that they are green. I love that they compress without putting too much pressure on my legs to create discomfort. I love that they are green. I love that they don’t stretch out after multiple wear sessions. I love that they are green. I love that I can pair them with capri’s for warmth & compression as the temps turn cooler. I love that they are green. I love that they are at the top of my drawer and my current new favorite thing. I love that they are green. I love that they match my new favorite shoes so well. 🙂
Regardless of whether you wear compression for function or fashion, I recommend trying out the new Pro Compression Calf Sleeves. I look forward to adding more colors to my line up!
