The sleeve doesn’t provide a lot of extra stability but the compression seemed to work great. After one day wearing it greatly reduced the pain. I’m wearing it over a sock and it caused no chafing and stays clean longer. I have tried a number of braces that help with stability but didn’t help with the pain. Perhaps the compression makes a big difference with any swelling. I’m pleased with the product.
I had an injury to my ankle 8 months ago. I have been going to physical therapy once a week with no relief.Extreme pain 24/7, couldn’t sleep a times. I ordered these ankle compression socks on a Sunday evening, received within two days! Put the sock on my injured foot and within an hour all pain stopped!!!!This product save my sanity, and took all pain away!! What a GREAT product.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this compression sock!
GREAT product. I have arthritis in both feet, as well as week ankles. I tried two other types of compression sleeves, and wound up unhappy. THESE are perfect. The compression is at a great level, and the added bonus of retaining natural warmth helps to ease the pain. One word of warning, however - DO take the seller's recommendation regarding purchasing the next size up if you are at the upper limits of a size. I am purchasing the next size up. If you have swelling in your legs, the top band won't "bite" you, but it may cause some ankle muffin tops!! Get the next size up if you are close to those upper limits. These ankle supports can be worn underneath your socks, and shoes will fit just fine. I wear these every day now. Nobody paid me for this review - I really DO LOVE THESE!!
I absolutely love this brace. I had ankle surgery and was worried about stability. It completely supports my ankle now that I am weight bearing. It was a bit tight at first, but after about a day it was great. Their customer service is also impeccable. Before I even received the product, I received an email regarding the delivery of my product, giving me support contact information in case anything were to happen. I have since received emails with regards of how to care for the brace and contact information if I need support. I believe this is a top notch company with a great product.
I purchased the foot sleeves two weeks ago and I have worn them to work for just as long. Since I am on my feet at least 8 hours each day, the compression and support the sleeves provide does help at the end of the day when these footsies finally get a chance to rest. The sleeves are just as described and they arrived in a very timely manner.
Used these for the first time today on a cold, windy run. I was pleasantly surprised at how warm they kept my legs without binding. I'm super sensitive to textures and weird feelings on my skin but these were undetectable. They stayed up really nicely and wicked sweat well too. Huge reduction in shin splint pain! They're also well made and the extra "gift" of an informative .pdf was a nice surprise :) Will shop with this company again.
I had spontaneous pain in my calf for weeks. An ultrasound showed it wasn’t a clot, but I had no idea what I had done to cause the pain. I am 5’8” and 150 pounds, and I ordered the large. It was a perfect fit. The pain immediately lessened, and has diminished every day. This was the most reasonable sleeve, and I couldn’t imagine any other working any better. I never write reviews, but I feel compelled because this truly was a lifesaver for me.
From the moment I slipped these on I even felt more athletic! I've been experiencing the pain that is shin splints lately and purchased these to help. They did the trick! First time I wore them I was able to run my usual route with minimal pain.
I love the way the calf sleeves hug my legs while I run. I've been running for more than 35yrs and recently starting having low calf pain and shin splints. The sleeves have worked great to reduce my pain and enable me to run to manage my weight. Thanks for producing a high quality product!
My daughters doctor recommended full socks, but this is better because they don't need washed after every use, if we are inside all day. They are very supportive, but my daughter doesn't like how tight they are to put on. I believe that they are exactly how they are supposed to be, and a great product.
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.
Amazing! I suffered from posterior tibialis shin splits for years and the physical therapy didn't work. Ordered these after doing my own research and have not had them since (almost a year).
These are really nice! My wife and I have had other compression products that were thinking and barely noticeable. These are different. They're thick and substantial. You can feel right out of the package that they're well made. I'd definitely recommend these. Very affordable and a solid product.
I had strained my calf muscle during kickball practice Monday, received these by Wednesday wore it a few hours while at work, along with stretching and ice. By Sunday I was back playing on the field again. Wore it during the game, it provided the support I needed to feel comfortable and painless. Thank-you I highly recommend.
As a registered nurse I am on my feet for 8-12 hours a day 3-4 days a week. Not only am I a RN I’m also 20 weeks pregnant. I’ve bought compression socks from medical stores and online but they don’t hold up. After washing they would end up all being different lengths. I thought I would try these. I’ve been wearing them everyday since I got them and have not had leg cramps and have had good blood flow. I will be buying another pair soon.
These are super tight which is great. I've been dealing with calf cramps and these sleeves have helped 100% with this issue. Got the 1st pair and love them so much, I bought a 2nd pair. Only downfall, which isn't a huge deal is that i wish they came in more colors!
Excellent compression sleeves I ever bought. Keeps my varicose veins from swelling and my legs from being tired. I wear it when I knew I will be standing for long period of time. Highly recommended. I will purchase it again & again. Try it!!!!
Absolutely love these compression sleeve socks! I really like that there isn’t a foot part. The compression socks with the foot part never fit me right. These went on with ease when following the directions provided and emailed to me (greatly appreciate this customer service!) The socks also did a wonderful job relieving leg pains and fatigue. I would highly recommend this product!
these things are great! Mine even came with doting customer service making sure i was 100% happy AND a free pain relief book! Excellent company!!
I love these! This is the second pair I have purchased! They are so comfortable and supportive w/o being too tight. I use for work (nurse) as well as cycling and running. I highly recommend them!
Blitzu Calf Compression Sleeve Socks have brought a much-needed relief to my issue with shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome). I have long awaited to find a solution to this issue. I CrossFit and run several times a week and wear them almost every workout. I will occasionally wear my sleeves on days that I do not work out to relieve my sore calves.
These are awesome! My first pair and I noticed a difference immediately. Will definitely be purchasing more. Lots of support from the company who makes them.
What I liked best was that I finally found some that fit! Extremely comfortable too.
Perfect for my recent 10K. I usually wear my full compression socks but I prefer these sleeves now!!
These are very comfortable and good looking too. The accompanying info on how to put them on was very helpful. I will buy more!
Fast shipping! They fit great and are nice quality :) love the bright pink
Just love my compression sleeves. Legs feel better after walking at work for 12 hours
Feel great! Fit great!
These are wonderful!!! they are easy to put on and instantly I could feel a huge difference. My legs would cramp at night, but since wearing these during the day, my legs have not cramped at all!!! I only wish I had found these years ago!!! Thank you!!!!!
works great. the instructions i received from them made putting them on a snap
These sleeves have been great in stopping calf pain when I am running. Definitely recommend them for anyone who gets tender lower calf muscles from running.
Fit as expected and even only wearing them for a short period of time have helped my feet and legs immensely!
Comfy, pretty, just what I needed.
Perfect for my calf. I needed something to reduce swelling and and help with compression while lifting, this was the trick!
they work as advertised and with their instructions easy to put on
They arrived on time and worked great!
Absolutely love these! Can wear all day at work, no slipping, no bunching, and lots of support.
Everything I was looking for.
I use these socks for the first time to run a Spartan race, they hold on and resist the abuse and stood on place the entire 15+ miles, the best part is that the next day I was sore ( of course) but not as much as went have run without these socks...
I'll will buy more and absolutely recommend this socks
I sit at a desk all day and as a result, have terrible swelling in my lower legs, ankles and feet. After removing these socks at home, I can actually see my ankle bones again!!! I have no swelling and no discomfort. My feet, ankles and legs do not feel achy, tired, heavy or full. These, by far, have been the best compression socks I've found!
Simply love these when working on my feet all day. I was a bit skeptical so I wore a regular wool trekking sock on one foot and a Blitzu on the other. I was more than pleasantly surprised at how much better the Blitzu leg and foot felt at the end of the day. There was a huge noticeable difference in the way my feet felt. It sold me. I doubt I will ever wear regular socks again when hiking or working. Compression socks work in a big way and Blitzu's are crazy comfortable and very high quality.
I have been running for 40+ years (60 years old). I started to experience lower leg pain after short 5 10k runs and it was suggested to look into the benefits of a compression sock. After much research I selected the Blitzu knee highs and they seem to help quite a bit. In my case, after a run, I ice down for a half hour so and then wear these socks at night. they are good quality and fit snug but still easy to put on and remove (with some effort but that is the case with compression clothing. I highly recommend these and probably will purchase another pair. BTW, Blitzu also provides a pretty thorough guide on leg pain mechanics and causes, and exercises to reduce symptoms.
I love the Blitzu compression socks! They fit tight so if you have developed calves get the xtra-large, if you have sze 13-14 calves get large. I got the large and I have slender ankles and calves. Fold the socks over the foot part of the sock, make sure the V points to the front of toes (lined up) and grab the ankle of sock onto foot until toes are snug in the sock and pull up over your heel.Grab the folded sock up your leg ,pulling firmly until you have no more fold and you reached your knee. Voila! Now you can walk, garden, stand at a job all day, or shop with ease.
Love these for my 12 hour and 24 hour shifts at the hospital! I spend a lot of time on my feet and will be needing more pairs because I had a great experience with these.
I've only worn my Blitzu compression socks a few times since getting them. They fit well, not too tight - especially around the upper calf-.
The support around my lower legs gave me more energy and I would highly recommend them. I don't have extra large calfs or heavy legs
but purchased the L/XL anyway. I'm glad I did because anything smaller would have been impossible to get on. For medium sized legs
these socks are a good fit. I would recommend this product. They are made very well.
Wow! These are great! I'm overweight and stand ALL day at work. I tried these on (wait for the directions on how to put them on to arrive in your email) and my legs immediately felt better. These are extremely tight. I bought them for a bit of travel I have coming up bc some travel websites recommended compression socks to protect your legs. I think I will wear them around locally to get used them but I'm looking forward to invigorated legs!
These compression socks are really great! They seem to have a bit more compression than others I have tried. Read the box carefully. I found that the socks are made for left and right wearing! That's right! They are marked under the foot with a L and R letter. I don't know why, but I follow directions carefully. They are comfortable, sized right, allowing you to wear them all day. And in my case, with edema, they really do a nice job! I would recommend these socks to anyone who is in the market for a comfortable compression sock to be worn all day.
I purchased these for my mom after she had surgery and they are excellent. She said they are comfortable and she loves the colors. Blitzu has great customer service. They sent me an e-mail to make sure I was 100% satisfied with the purchase following delivery and provided contact information in case I had any questions or concerns. They even provided helpful suggestions for making the socks easier to put on and take off. Would definitely purchase these again.
Great value. I love the color! The fit is perfect for me and it actually helps my feet from feeling the weight of standing for long hours.
Very good product. I work on my feet 12 hours a day and was having foot and calf pain. I tried different shoe types that did nothing. These really changed work for me. They may not be what you need, you might have back pain or might need orthotics. This was what worked for me. I no longer have any pain or discomfort when wearing these. They are good quality and I don't go to work without them ever.
I had a spiral fracture of the fibula 16 weeks ago and returned to work after 9 weeks. I had an incredible amount of swelling by the end of my 1st shift. For the past 25 years I have been standing on concrete, with minimal padding, 8+ hours a day 5 days a week. A lightbulb finally fizzled above my head..... Maybe try compression socks! So I read through the reviews on the Blitzu socks & bought my 1st pair 3 weeks ago. What a difference! They REALLY helped reduce foot/ankle swelling and minimize fatigue. I bought another pair last week!
I had a little swelling in my ankles for years. Wore the socks all day for two days. When I woke up on the third day and starting putting them on I could really see the difference. I put another pair of socks over them and then into a pair of shoes. Expected them to be hot but they were cool and I did not notice them. I like to wear them around because I think they look cool.
I am very very happy with these socks! I have had leg aches since I was a small child. Doctors do not know why. Not as a senior it is affecting my sleep but also having a lot of cram ps in my feet . After some research i ordered a pair of these. I was so impressed that a day after getting them i ordered two more pairs. I could not believe the quality. They are wonderful. I highly recommend!
This is my first pair of compression socks. So far, they're holding up well. Be sure to use the provided instructions to put them on, and hand wash in cold water only. I use them to run; enjoy the extra support they provide. For reference, I am 6'0", 150 pounds, wear a size 10 women's shoe and purchased the S/M size which seems to fit well.
I very pleased with the fit and the comfort provided by these socks. They provide a great support for my foot and ankle post surgery. It is a necessity as the surgery has left my ankle extremely swollen. Wearing these have helped with reduced swelling and lower the pain. Definitely well worth the price.
I am on my feet and wear compression socks every day. These socks were very nice and fit great. I actually really liked these socks. They are thick or feel like a heavy sock, but actually feel light on and my feet did not get hot. The compression support was really nice and my legs felt great at the end of the day. The band at the knee was really nice and did not roll or slip down. There was plenty of room in the toes. I also have large calves and these socks fit nicely and not too snug. I loved the feel, fit and colors. I will order these again.
I bought a pair of these socks for my husband after he tore the cartilage in his left knee (lateral meniscus), which led to great pain and swelling. He only used one sock, on his left leg. It made it easier for him to walk, and was excellent at controlling the swelling in his foot, ankle and lower leg (although he did then have swelling in his thigh). We are very pleased with this purchase!
I love these compression socks, I've tried many manufacturers, and these are the best. Lots of squeeze, long lasting, no holes in toes, have worn many times. My calves are 18.75". these socks are long lasting, and a great value, compared to others I have bought. WILL buy again, when needed. Only have black and white, but assume other colors are just as good.
I’m a bartender so I use my right hand a lot also play golf and I had a little tennis elbow, I use this for support at work and it really helps me of course along with all the things you have to do for tennis elbow( medicine gels, exercise, ice compressions etc.
This elbow sleeve works great. It is strong fabric which gives support to sore elbows. It has a lot of elastic stretch to it and doesn’t stretch out even after days of wearing it. I think you will be happy with it provided you get your correct size.
I cant review this accurately. My husband was having issues with his elbow. Finally found out it was an neck issue not an elbow issue. He wore it, said it was comfortable but it didnt help him.
This elbow brace is comfortable and easy to wear. It provided relief and support for my tendinitis. This brace provided more relief than other band style braces I have used, especially by relieving painin my biceps. I recommend this brace for painful tendinitis
I am a massage therapist suffering from tendinitis , i wore this while working and it kept in place , it gives excellent stability without restricting movement, fabric breathes well. I love it and will recommend to my clients.
These are comfy to me. The firmness for me is not very tight at the ankle area as I would like (I am shoe size 6 1/2)- but tight at the ends. They do provide nice support and can be slept in, and worn with shoes which is my main purpose for when my ankle is tired or I will be doing lifting. I will order more in the future.
I really didn't have any faith in these socks when I ordered them. I have been to several doctors about the foot pain I have been going through. Nothing worked with what they came up with. I thought for the price of these socks I would give them a shot. I can honestly say they work. I only wear one sock on my left foot. Give them a chance you can only lose pain.
They were very hard to get on my feet.. I gave up when I first got them and tried again today. Once on they were comfortable and the open toe make them far more breathable. Seem to be well manufactured and sturdy material.. I figured they were going to rip trying to get them on my feet.. lolBut as far as quality.. a solid 5 star rating is appropriate!
I am truly happy I came across this product; however, I do not have Plantar Fasciitis or need Arch Support. I do have tendonitis and in looking for a compression sock for tendonitis, well, I could not find one. I was directed to use an elastic bandage, which I did try. Try getting THAT into your shoe! Then I came across the Blitzu socks. They work perfectly! Thank you!
I like these, I fell and hurt my ankle, I didn't want a big brace, just something thin I can wear with regular little shoes to get some support. This does the trick well. I got the small, I wear a women's 9 and my foot is on the wider side, but I don't wear a wide shoe, I also have a high arch and small fits well. Would buy again.
Perfect end to a day in heels is to wear these to release stress on the instep and arch.
It feels great, snuggly. I wear a size 9 and I bought the l/lx. I wear it every time I go into work. I'm stand for each shift for 10-12 hours straight. I don't not have any discomfort. I actually feel relief.
My friend says they’re helpful for her neuropathy but she can only wear them for a few hours at a time.
I really like these socks. I’ve been wearing them for about a week. I have noticed that finally I don’t have pain in my retinaculum any more when I walk with them on. And I don’t get any swelling.
These arrived on time and are perfect for what I needed to help reduce swelling in the summer months.
I wear mine after a long day on my feet at work. I have slept with them on also. They help and make my arches feel better. I have worn them during the day while I'm out and about and they are good.
I loved these supports. They helped with my foot pain. However. They do run a tad smaller than expected.
I really love this sleeve. It provides pressure for my currently ailing foot in all the right places and still allows me to wear sandals since it is summer.
Work well, support good, wash well.
My planter fasciitis went away quickly with these.
great product feet feel better already
Very happy with product. So happy I bought two pairs! Does wonders for my plantar fasciitis.
Hard to get off though.
Excellent service and delivery. The product is a good fit and very supportive
They work very well.
I have very painful neuropathy in my feet, and every morning I wake up in extreme pain. With these socks... I am waking up with very little pain. I am blown away!
Definitely pleased with the purchase
First day I could feel the difference. No pain walking and climbing stairs. I walk on concrete floors all day and I had no pain. So I bought 2 more pairs. Awesome
I have very painful neuropathy in my feet, and every morning I wake up in extreme pain. With these socks... I am waking up with very little pain. I am blown away!
I wear them after my runs for foot soreness or pain
Nice color and comfortable.
Eased my pain
I love them.
Loved this! Really works
