I had strained my left calf muscle for the first time in my life after transitioning into HIIT on my treadmill with minimalist shoes and I could not walk properly for a couple days. Once the compression sleeves arrived, I put them on and started to notice immediate relief! Its been about a week now and I am about ready to continue training on the treadmill again!!
These were made by angels! Suffer from horrible shin splints. I play roller derby. Used KT tape before. Might as well throw that in the trash after using these! I barely felt the pain at all. Wish I had a pair in every color lol. I'm 5'2" 140. Small/medium was nice and tight where it needed to be and looser in the right places as well. PERFECT DESIGN.
The socks work better than another brand I tried...which I do not want to name. My legs feel great during the day.....thank you.
I used these for a half marathon this morning. No shin splints, calves feel pretty good. I had noticably less fatigue throughout the race. I also used these in combination with KT Tape around my knees. Using these made a difference.
Love, love, my calf socks. I work two jobs an average of 13 hours a day. What a difference they make on my legs. I was skeptical because other socks don't normally stay in place. For the most part these do very well. Will be purchasing more.
