PRO Compression review and *giveaway*

Posted Oct 10 2012 9:10am

A couple weeks ago I ordered a pair of marathon compression socks from PRO compression . I had never tried their compression socks but had heard great things about them, so I decided to give it a go (along with a 40% off coupon and free shipping!). IMG_8826

I got the lime green sock, as I am a fan of bright colors. When I first ordered them I went for the XS/S size, because I was looking at their sleeves first and that is the size that would have fit. But then I looked at the sizing chart for the socks and realized I needed S/M. I emailed them right away and they were totally awesome and changed my order, no problem. IMG_8831

My other compression socks are ridiculously hard to put on and they are nice and snug, like compression socks are assumed to be. These PRO compression marathon compression socks are SO MUCH EASIER to put on, yet they still have a enough compression to them. At first I thought they weren’t as compressing as my others, but after a little while they felt just as nice as the others.

And about the size. I wear a size 9 running shoe, so that is why I changed to S/M. But next time I might go with an XS/S, mainly to see the difference, but also I do like it a little tighter on my calves. IMG_8829

I’m a huge fan of compression socks in general, and these are definitely good compression socks. They breathe well, fit the foot perfectly, and have great compression. I would definitely recommend this company and brand if you are in need of some good compression socks.

Here is a little info from their website:

Why PRO Compression Socks?
The benefit of wearing compression socks over 26.2 miles, 18 holes or 8 hours at work is the delay of muscular breakdown that comes from spending hours on your feet. PRO Compression works against gravity by helping your vascular system increase blood flow which relieves discomfort and assists in recovery. The minute you put them on, you’ll understand why PRO Compression socks are the World’s Best Athletic Performance Socks!

How they work -
PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood. The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference.

What are they made of?
Our world-class design is complimented with specialized materials. Without them, it would be impossible to create revolutionary performance footwear. Cotton and wool simply aren’t going to cut it in a world where the best athletes rely on the highest-quality gear. PRO Compression uses a proprietary blend of nylon and poly materials, optimized for performance, benefiting both amateur and professional athletes.


And there you have it! If you haven’t joined the compression socks wagon, climb aboard. I’ve already said it, but I’m definitely a huge fan of compression gear, especially for my calves. PRO Compression socks are the way to go.
