I love compression socks and calf sleeves. When my calf started having issues last winter, the only way I could run was to wear compression. I’m no longer having those kind of issues, but my calf is still a cranky guy. (Seriously, if I stretch out after sitting or sleeping with my legs bent, instant calf cramp. Not the pleasantest of ways to wake up.)
Anyways, when I got offered the chance to try out the ProCompression socks, I was all over it.
Short story: I love them. They make my tired calves happy.
I started out wearing them just post run. After my long run, I’m happiest in compression socks and velour sweats. (Don’t judge. When I’m feeling really classy, I put on Jones’ crocs and go to the store. I said, don’t judge.)
Today I actually ran 6 miles in them. My calves felt great and I had no issues with the foot part of the sock (my initial worry about running in them.)
The ProCompression socks are a lighter weight than some of the others I’ve tried. I like that as I tend to overheat when I wear knee socks. They stretch nicely and are easy to put on, but feel comfortably tight while I’m wearing them. My only issue at all is that they are a bit long on me, so there is a bit of tight bunching right below my knee. So far, that hasn’t caused a problem, but I’m not sure I could run in them for a half marathon. Time will tell, I guess.

cute! Love the color. I am quite the compression junkie, and wear socks, sleeves, pants all the time!
I’ve never worn compression socks – might try them. My calves are never my problem – do they make them for hips?!
I have the same pink ones and love them!
Thanks for the review. I have been thinking about getting a pair of these for a long time. No judging with the sweats. I proudly wear pajama jeans out and about after a long run 🙂 classy right?
I recently discovered compression socks (and pro compression) and i love love love them… socks use to be my enemy now they are a good friend 😉
You have such great runner’s gear in the US. I have a white pair of compression socks and could buy black as the only other alternative. Pink?!! Unheard of. They look great and to have ones that would be easy to pull up after a really long run would be amazing.
Nice review! These socks look and sound so great, I would love to try them out. Lucky you!
I too LOVE ProCompression!! Have every color except the green… it’s always out of stock when I go to order… someday!
