PRO Compression Review & Giveaway (Day 4)


If you have been following my blog for a while, you know I am a huge fan of PRO Compression socks! So it should be no surprise that these made it on my top 10 favorite pieces of running gear. 

I know many runners have reviewed and raved about these fantastic socks, so get ready for more! I have been consistently running since November 2012 and suffered from shin splints for the first couple of months. I was new to the running world but found bloggers like Monica from Run Eat Repeat and Sarah from Skinny Runner who shared their favorite gear. I was skeptical mainly because I have huge calves (around 18 inches in circumference) and didn't want to be in pain. 

I followed the size chart listed on the PRO Compression website. 


I was happy to learn that my sizing was spot on. 

Here is a description and some features of the Marathon Socks listed on the website.

Experience maximum benefit with the Marathon full-length, graduated compression sock. Compression technology helps 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.


Put it all together for the perfect sock for endurance, recovery and travel.

mmHg 22-26
Features 
  • 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


As a back of the pack and heavier set runner, I must say these socks are a life saver. I have worn these socks during races, training runs, plane rides and on rest days. My legs feel fresh and plus I love the colors! You can match then with any outfit, so you can mix and match for fun! 

Still on the fence? Well 2 lucky readers will have the opportunity to try them out for themselves.
