I am a new walker, in my 70's, and was experiencing shin splints. I purchased these to see if they helped. Guess what ... along with stretching, these have been a tremendous help. They hold their shape, wash well & are comfortable to wear. I'll buy them again!
I bought these calf sleeves because I run about 18 miles a week indoors and outdoors and gets chronic shin splints. I was concerned about the size because I am a 5-2 petite woman. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these sleeves actually fit very well. I think they would also be suitable for a man or a bigger person because they're pretty stretchy. Regarding my shin splints, the ones in my right leg went away and I have occasional shin splints in my left leg. However, they are not nearly as bad and do not occur nearly as often as they do if I don't wear these.
Hand wash with mild detergent.
Would buy again!
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.
