Since I was diagnosed with venous insufficiency, I have been stuck wearing not-so-pretty, thick knee-high nylons. They have 15-20 mmHg compression, which helps keep my feet and ankles from swelling.
They are pretty comfortable, but also pretty ugly and VERY hot!! I have been on the lookout for something lighter and/or more attractive.
I was very excited when the folks at PRO Compression asked me to review their marathon socks.
About the Product:
Marathon runners use compression socks because they help 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.
PRO Compression Marathon socks feature:
- Full-length, graduated compression design for maximum blood flow
- Non-slip design, even after hours on your feet
- Lightweight construction for incredible feel
- Blended materials provide maximum comfort and support
- Moisture control keeps you dry during your biggest efforts
- Made in USA
I was a little unsure of how these socks would work for me because they are a slightly stronger compression (22-26 mmHg) than my usual stockings. But they are so gosh darn cute!! Plus, I figured if marathon runners can wear them for an entire race, I should be able to handle them for a day of work.
The PRO Compression Marathon socks are my new favorite compression stockings!! They are SO comfortable and lightweight!! Plus they have built-in moisture control so my feet don’t feel as hot as they do in my regular nylons. Also, they are machine washable, which is a huge bonus for me, because my traditional stockings have to be hand-washed.
Not to mention, they are so stinking cute!!
I highly recommend the PRO Compression Marathon socks for runners as well as those who need that extra compression for other reasons (like me!!) They are super comfortable and come in so many colorful styles!! (Mine are Michelle Jones Limited Edition).
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
