ProCompression Review & Giveaway

* This giveaway is closed *

 
Today's run was great due to 3 things: 55' weather, my BAMR Bands headband, and my brand new ProCompression socks!


I have heard so many good things about ProCompression socks but was skeptical about their "magic powers." I have had problems with my legs throughout my running career and had compartment syndrome in my right leg which led me to get surgery (basically my nerves and blood flow were being cut off whenever I ran so they had to fix that).

I had emailed the company and told them about my running problems and asked if there was anyway I could try a pair out. I figured it would take them awhile to respond and thought all they were going to do was send me the coupon code for Sock of the Month. Well I was wrong because they replied within a day and said they would send me a pair to try out (which came in the mail within another 2 days). They also said they would do a giveaway for my readers! Talk about awesome.

The pair of socks they sent me were the Purple Marathon socks. I love the bright purple color and lime green accent.


Magic Powers


ProCompression socks are comfortable and offer a ton of benefits, which I also call "magic powers."


From the website: "Experience maximum benefit with the Marathon full-length, graduated compression sock. Compression technology helps improve blood flow, resulting in better, more consistent performance with less fatigue and faster, more efficient recovery. In addition to improving vascular performance, Marathon compression socks provide support to critical muscles and tendons, helping reduce inflammation and soreness."

My Results


As soon as I put these socks on I could feel a difference. I loved how much support they offered and how snug they were on my legs and feet.


When I wore these on my run today I could feel a difference. My calves didn't feel sore at all and when I was done with my run, my legs still felt good as new. Normally they are sore after a run or feel tight and today they felt fine. Today's run was a quick 3 miles but I am sure that these will make a huge difference on my longer 6+ mile runs.

I also liked that the socks didn't slip down at all while running and were breathable. It was a pretty warm day out today so I almost opted not to wear the socks because I thought my legs would feel overheated but they didn't.
