I have purchased 3 pairs in size L/XL(tan) for my short chubby legs. It turned out the sleeves were quite long for my calves but they easily turned into toeless compression socks so I can wear them with sandals for summer as well. The compression is perfect, very comfortable and really helps with my swollen ankles. I simply machine wash them in cold water & hang to dry. I find no need to hand wash them.
These are the best calf compression sleeves I have purchased so far. Other brands cut off too much circulation and are uncomfortable. Blitzu's are just right and gave my calves a warmed up feeling ten minutes after I put them on.
I have a very physical job that requires me to walk 12 or more miles a day. Normally my calves feel very sore but when I wear these I have no soreness during or after work.
These compression sleeves also have helped my plantar fascitis. Before wearing them my foot would get numb and hurt during my 10 hour shift. The numbness went away on the first day of wearing these compression socks and so did the normal pain that I experience!
They have really helped with my shin splints and walking
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.
