I'm 5'9...and weigh 287 lbs...I have really bad circulation problems on both legs. These compression stockings are a HIGHLY-MAJOR RELIEF! No slide or rolling down of stocking & THEY DON'T ITCH! Colors are Super Inviting! I LOVE LOVE THESE! I already recommended 2 family & friends alike!
I've been an avid runner for decades and an amateur triathlete for 2 years. I've tried compression socks before, however wearing them during distance runs gave me foot pain and blisters. I find anti-blister, sweat-wickering socks are MUCH more important to stay injury free. So I found these calf sleeves to still use my preferred socks while getting the better circulation that comes with compression. My first purchase were a size small in purple. They were a little weird to try at first but I soon learned to LOVE them! I'm 5'7" and I'd say I have semi-larger calves than those of same weight, but I find the small fits perfectly! My first race with them was the Seattle Marathon where I got a significant PR. A week later I ran a 12K...then 15K... then another half marathon. I typically would have longer gaps between races, but I attribute compression sleeves to keeping my muscles happy for back-to-back runs. I now have these in Purple, Orange, and Pink. I know I probably shouldn't, but I machine wash them. I do NOT throw them in the dryer though...they dry hanging in my bathroom. Still ALL 3 pairs have held up well and are just as compression fitted and color rich months later. I will attach pictures from races last Dec to March. I have yet to try these in a triathlon as I feel they would take too long to put on during transition (as compression-anything typically should). I'm guessing it'll take practice. ;-) Overall I'm VERY happy and just might purchase more colors... 🙂❤🧡💛💚💙💜🖤
**Update: It's now August 3rd (near 10-ish months since my first pair), and I'm still in love with ALL my compression sleeves. They are holding up well through time, runs, and washes. My newest pair is white to match a new pair of Nike's. Happy running out there!
I am a nurse and am on my feet ALL DAY long! These are so nice because you don't necessarily have to wash them every day unlike the full sock ones. I actually prefer to wear my own socks as well. After you buy them, you will get an email about how to put them on, VERY helpful!! The compression is the perfect amount at such a low price:)))
Just love my compression sleeves. Legs feel better after walking at work for 12 hours
Feel great! Fit great!
