I’m a bit of a sock snob. I only have a few brands in my drawer and I don’t go outside my favorites because it ends up being a waste of money. In fact, Aby has a drawer full of running socks that are “Momma’s rejects”. Some socks are just too small for my giant feet, others don’t fit properly, some slip, some I just don’t like but for no particular reason.
Therefore, when initially discussing Pro Compression’s Trainer Low socks, I wasn’t excited. In fact, I wasn’t interested. However, as my long runs progressed in distance and the trail became snowy and uneven, this created additional stress on my already damaged feet. I reconsidered the Trainer Low. I figured if I could get more support for my feet and in particular, the tendon that I’m rehabbing, it would be a good thing. Less foot pain is always a good thing, right?
Enter the Pro Compression Trainer Low.
My first impression when they arrived in the mail was, “Hmmmm, they aren’t No Show socks”.
My second impression was, “Wow, these things feel pretty good!” And I basically haven’t taken them off since. In fact, I had to order more because I was wearing dirty socks. Dirty socks to work. Dirty socks to workout. Dirty socks. Yuck.
These would be the only socks in my arsenal that are NOT “No Show”. If I’m not wearing full compression socks, then I wear No Show socks. No Show socks with a tab so they don’t slip. No exception. Until now.
These socks hug the foot in true compression fashion but are not tight. They have slight padding at the ball of the foot and in the heel. They are thin but not so thin that I need to fear a short life span. They are super comfy and just make my feet feel good. The official description from Pro Compression:
The ideal under-ankle compression sock for running, walking and other activities. Lightweight construction and stabilizer zone increase comfort and provide support you can feel. A great sock for training, racing and everyday wear.
- Built-in “Stabilizer Zone” promotes balance from the ground up
- Non-slip design, even after hours on your feet
- Lightweight construction for incredible feel
- Blended materials provide maximum comfort and support
- Moisture control, keeping you dry…even during your biggest efforts
- Made in USA
An additional benefit to having a little material on the ankle in the winter time? It covers the gap between my shoes and my tights. Bonus! I’m super excited to
clean out my sock drawer add the Trainer Lows into my rotation for both running/workouts & every day wear. Okay, who am I kidding? I’m totally clearing out my sock drawer to make more room for Trainer Lows. I’m hooked!
