Eric at Procompression was awesome enough to send me a pair of their compression socks for runners. I was boring a chose black. In my defense, they will match most of my running skirts this way :)
First impression: When I pulled them out of the packaging I was impressed. They are well constructed and made of really nice material and aren't too thick. They have held up really well to multiple washings.
Right after I got these in the mail I noticed that they were a Schwaggle deal also and I ordered the baby blue and yellow. I have since also purchased two white pairs and I am still thinking pretty hard about getting the lime green and purple.
Here is what they say about them:
Experience maximum benefit with the Marathon full-length, graduated compression sock. Compression technology helps improve blood flow, resulting in better, more consistent performance with less fatigue and faster, more efficient recovery. In addition to improving vascular performance, Marathon compression socks provide support to critical muscles and tendons, helping reduce inflammation and soreness.I love that they are made in the good ol US of A.
Put it all together for the perfect sock for endurance, recovery and travel.
- Full-length, graduated compression design for maximum blood flow
- Non-slip design, even after hours on your feet
- Lightweight construction for incredible feel
- Blended materials provide maximum comfort and support
- Moisture control keeps you dry during your biggest efforts
- Made in USA
I ran 7 miles the day after my 21 mile run and while I was a little slower than usual my calves were not sore or tight at all.
Even two out of three of the ladies on their way to the Olympics wears compression socks while running a marathon.
I have also worn them all day at work while on my feet all day and I thought they felt really great then too. What I think feels best in them is just kicking back with my ipad and relaxing :)
I have done every long run in these since the middle of March and plan to run my first marathon in them. I wear them for races and recovery.
