I have a really great product review for you today. There is also a GIVEAWAY at the end so keep reading! 🙂
As you know from reading my blog I have spent a lot of time the past couple weeks slowly increasing my miles. As you increase your miles you put a lot of wear and tear on your legs. One of the greatest things I have found to help your legs recover is compression socks.
PRO Compression was nice enough to send me a pair of their compression socks to try out.
“All of PRO Compression’s socks are designed and manufactured in the USA, giving PRO compression complete control over the quality of every sock we sell, from design through manufacturing and distribution. Our goal is to deliver a world-class sock that will enable you to play better than ever and recover more quickly than previously possible.”
Pro Compression is a USA based company that strives to make compression socks for both amateur or professional athletes. They can be used before, during, or after exercise.
What makes PRO Compression different?
“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 fee and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference.”
PRO Compression socks hug your legs and feet to help increase vascular efficiency.

I have tried out several different compression sock brands over my time running and I have to say these are the best fitting socks I have tried. I have had socks that are so hard to get on and off that it is beyond frustrating.
I took the PRO Compression socks right out the packaging and even though they are tight (as compression socks should be) they slid right onto my legs and immediately made them feel better. You may think I am crazy but compression socks do amazing and wonderful things to help your legs recover. PRO Compression made my run easier and more relaxed then if I had run without these socks on.
Color and Feel
Score: 5 out of 5
One of the awesome things about PRO Compression socks is the amazing assortment of colors they come in. Don’t worry, for you non-bright color wearing people out there they also have the normal white and black.
They sent me one of my favorite colors to try – purple and I absolutely loved them!
In terms of the actual feel and texture of the socks they are super soft. I have not had a chance to wash them yet, but they fit perfectly to my leg, don’t itch, and they are very soft to the touch. A lot of compression socks to me feel very stiff and rigid and even though they work they tend to make my legs itch or even make it harder to run. PRO Compression really knows what they are doing when it comes to the texture and make of the socks.

The socks stayed tight to me legs the entire run. I even felt like my legs were more refreshed and ready to go then they had been in quite a long time while wearing these. The socks never slipped or moved around on my legs. They also didn’t cause any type of chaffing or irritation to my skin.
I kept the socks on after my run to help with recovery and get my legs ready for my Saturday long run tomorrow. You forget the socks are even on your legs after a while. They are so comfortable and provide just the right amount of compression to help maximize your performance and recovery.
