Procompression Socks Review and a 2 for the price of 1 coupon code

With all the long runs I have been putting in lately training for my first marathon and all these crazy new PDR (17, 18, 19, and 21, 22, 23 miles) I have been taking a closer look at compression socks/sleeves.

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.

Put it all together for the perfect sock for endurance, recovery and travel.

mmHg 22-26
  • 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 love that they are made in the good ol US of A.

I do my long runs in them and then leave them on for recovery. I feel no discomfort or annoyance from them the entire time.  I never have to adjust them or pull them up more, they stay in place really well.  They also aren't so tight that they annoy me. They feel really good on.

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.

I was given 1 pair of these socks free ($50 value) to review, the other four pairs I purchased because I love them so much.  The opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Great review!!! One of my RTB teammates wore a different pair of these for each leg. His total mileage was over 22 miles and I believe they helped him rock those legs! :) Love the colors.

  2. This is a great review! I have a pair of compression socks but I haven't in them yet. I have been sort of worried about the actual sock/foot part for running. I guess I will have to give them a try. Those are lovely colors and I am seeing more and more runners wearing them.

    1. I meant to say I haven't actuall RUN in them yet. !

  3. Both Allan and I are big fans of compression socks and compression sleeves. They have some cute colors! I love the blue.

  4. huge fan of these!
    I have 3 pairs!! the best
    I used to wear the SS ones with the heart...those are not as good not even close

  5. I have these too and I'm actually wearing them right now. I love them! They are so much easier to but on then my CEP socks and they don't collect as many fuzzies on the sole either.

  6. I saw this deal too and am tempted to buy more. I have a pair of hot pink ones and I love them!

  7. ugh i just ordered one pair with the runchat discount. this one's better! i got yellow!

    1. Courtney email me if you would like another pair on the Fathers Day Special.

  8. I've been considering picking up compression socks since I love compression shorts so much! I will check these out!


  9. you inspire me EVERY day...

    those socks look cool, but since it's hit or miss with my longER runs these days, I haven't really looked into compression gear in a while...

  10. I LOVE these socks. I have them in baby blue, black and lime green! I don't run very long miles (mostly upwards of 4.5 miles right now) but I always say better to be careful!

  11. Love pro compression socks, they are my fav compression brand!

    They are the only socks that are the right height for my legs!


Because I love hearing from you all!
