As you probably already know, I have a slight obsession with my PRO Compression socks. I can be seen wearing them before and after runs, during long runs, sleeping, and under my boots during the day. So basically I wear them all the time.
They were especially helpful over the weekend when I took 4 flights to get to and from Arkansas for my SIL’s baby shower. (Well worth it of course!) I’m always grateful to be able to wear my compression socks while flying to reduce swelling and promote blood flow to the legs. I know that everyone who sees them while I go through security is secretly jealous.
I’ve also found that my favorite trick to keeping your boots down under your jeans/pants is to wear compression socks under them. I used to wear long socks that I would pull over my pants and then wear my boots but I felt like my made my pants puff out around the knee or get pulled down too low. Somehow the compression socks under my pants magically keeps my pants nicely tucked inside my boots, while providing all the benefits of compression at the same time.
I’ve also been wearing the calf sleeves under my running tights lately for some extra warmth. This works on days when I need warmer socks but still want to wear compression while I am running.
According to the PRO Compression website:
PRO Compression socks deliver 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 feet, you will feel the difference.
True graduated compression promotes circulation by squeezing fluids away from your feet and ankles toward your knees and core. This design reduces swelling and inflamation and provides critical support to muscles and tendons.
Sounds pretty good, huh?
