Pro Compression Socks review & giveaway (ENDED)

When I first started running, I had the absolute worst shin splints ever.  I would end my run in tears because my legs were practically screaming at me.  I began to wear compression sleeves, and that really helped with my pain.

The more I run, the more I understand how important recovery is.  I saw a lot of buzz about Pro Compression on Twitter and heard nothing but rave reviews about them.  I owned compression sleeves, but not socks, so I thought I would try them out.

The first pair I bought was right before we left for our Hawaiian vacation.  I wanted them to wear on the plane (they also help minimize swelling on long flights!).  Pro Compression’s customer service department was amazing and made sure that I received the socks before we left.  A great product AND great customer service?  Count me in!

A few weeks later I saw they had a pair of their sleeves on sale, so I snatched a pair of those up and wore them the day after my double race day.

Pro Compression socks and sleeves are a great addition to any runner’s closet, whether you wear them during your runs or slip them on afterward.  They also come in a lot of fun colors, and they’re always coming out with new ones!  Did you see the new yellow Sock of the Month?

  6. I would DEFINITELY love to add a pair of pink compression socks to my wardrobe!!! They would match perfectly with my running shoes... andddd pretty much every piece of running apparel that I own. =)

  7. LOVE my ProCompression!!! I have pink and purple socks and pink sleeves.. would love purple sleeves, or maybe the neon green socks!

    I have the same issue with shin splits.. ugh. If I focus on striking midfoot it helps. I run much slower that way, but thankfully no issues.

    Always recover with my ProCompression though!

  12. I would probably go with the black pair as they would be okay for me to wear to work then as a dress sock and help me with recovery at the same time.

  13. I absolutely LOVE ProCompression! I used to wear them during runs but all that caused was overheating. Now, I wear them for a full 12-18 hours after a run and shower. I EVEN sleep in them. It is amazing how each morning I wake up fresh and ready to go! I am missing the blue, red and lime for my collection so I need to add those ASAP!

    Happy Running!

  14. I wear compression gear definitely after runs and sometimes during. (Sometimes I don't like wearing them during runs because they can cause the cramp to escape my calf (YAY) but head up to my quad (nay!)).

    I'd love to have a blue pair in my gear bag... I love love love blue especially for racing :)

  15. I would have to say Bright pink or possibly an aqua. I've done the compression sleeve from a different brand but they just stretch out. :(
