I received a pair of Pro Compression Marathon Socks for this review. No other forms of compensation was received, and all opinions are 100% my own.
I have never considered myself a runner, but I do love to hike. Have you heard of Joshua Tree National Park with all of its big boulders? We live near it, and surrounding us is a mountain with boulders galore - just like a smaller version of Joshua Tree. In the winter, it is our playground. We hike on up and hop from boulder to boulder climbing up the mountainside.
I recently received a pair of compression socks from Pro Compression. If you did not know, medical grade compression socks have been used for quite some time now to combat poor circulation and deep vein thrombosis (the formation of blood clots in the legs). Compression socks were found to work well with bedridden and inactive people to increase circulation and blood flow. Now people are starting to realize that these compression socks might just be good for athletic pursuits as well. There has been some evidence that pro compression socks can reduce muscle fatigue and people can recover more quickly after running or cycling in a big race.
Compression socks are not just only for running, training, or racing, but also for traveling and for people who work in an office. Graduated compression is shown to help increase blood and oxygen flow in the legs which helps reduce lactic acid and helps you to recover faster and feel less fatigue. That also means less muscle cramps. Pro Compression Marathon Socks can work for a variety of sports or under a pair of business pants - they are great for many occasions!
These over-the-calf Marathon Socks from Pro Compression feature a graduated compression that are designed for maximum blood flow. They are made with a blend of materials that provide great comfort and support, while also controlling moisture to keep you dryer. With their no slip design, these socks stay over your calves and not slip down by the end of the day. They do feel just wonderful to wear. My legs feel great at the end of a long day either in the hot dry desert of home, or in the balmy weather conditions of the East Coast (where I am currently at).
I really can't begin to tell you about all the fun and wild colors the Pro Compression Marathon Socks come in. Since I am truly patriotic at heart, I chose the Marathon White, Red and Blue Stripe socks. There are 25 bright color combinations to choose from. Each and every one of them will keep your legs feeling great!
