I've been a big fan of PRO Compression socks since I bought my first pair three years ago and was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to review them.
Let's start with the basics.
What are compression socks and why do you see runners running wearing tube socks?
The "tube socks" help improve blood flow, provide comfort while running and help speed up recovery times. Since I love my PRO Compression socks and have a few pairs, I wear a pair on my longer runs as well as a pair after my run to help with recovery. If I run with my socks on and then put on a pair after my run, I have very little soreness in my calves the next day...and that's with 18+ mile runs!
I wore my awesome black compression socks for my 10 mile race this past weekend. After cleaning for nearly eight hours on Saturday, my legs were SORE so I decided that PRO Compression socks were going to be part of my race day attire. It was a wise decision because it helped my legs not feel so heavy, especially later in the race.
During the race, a fellow runner asked if the compression socks were hot. Absolutely NOT! They are light weight, moisture wicking and who gets sweaty calves when they run anyways?!
I also wore my socks on an eight mile trail run after work this week. Since trail running is a bit tougher than road running, and because I don't do it often, I figured it would be a great opportunity to try out the socks. My legs were tired but after the trail run but I woke up the next day without any calf tightness.
What else do I love about PRO Compression socks?
- They feel amazing after a long run. After my long runs, I look forward to putting on a clean pair of PRO Compression socks. It a feeling until any other. The folks at PRO Compression should come up with a full body compression because that would feel amazing after a long run to have every inch of my body covered in compression material.
- They look cool. There are a TON of colors to choose from and PRO Compression is always coming out with a new sock design.
- The socks are budget friendly. Each month there's a new sock of the month which is 40% off!
