    Comments about CW-X Compression Support Socks:

    I am so glad that runners world recently reviewed compression socks b/c but they seem to really speed recovery after long runs. I haven't tried running in them yet b/c I'm a little self conscious (shorts, sports bra & knee high black socks w/white kicks?!) but once it gets cool enough for me to wear running tights, you can bet that I'm wearing these underneath!

      Medium support with a thick sock. I wear another pair of socks with these,like the extra cushion for long runs. Very happy and will continue to wear and buy these great socks. RUN ON

      Comments about CW-X Compression Support Socks:

      Feels like regular socks but too expensive.. Very light compression feels nothing actually. and not for petite people because it's long. I had to fold it so it won't be over my knees. If I have a choice I would return it but since I used it once already, I cant. I'm disappointed because I tought cw-x is a good brand.

        I developed a blood clot in my leg and my doctor recommended these for daily use. They take a little while to get used to, but now I feel awkward when I don't wear them. Very durable and very nice.

          Comments about CW-X Compression Support Socks:

          I'm not a great believer in products with claims of solving injuries but these socks have done exactly that with my issues. I have had chronic calf issues for a few years after tearing my left calf. Since then, I couldn't run more than 6-8 miles on a long run without being down for a week recovering from my calf aches. I tried these socks since they were on clearance and I didn't have much to lose. They have worked wonders with my calf. My running is better than it's been in years. I use the socks to run in and also for recovery. They make a huge difference where i have no calf aches or pains. I highly recommend trying one pair and giving these a chance.

            Ran an 18 miler a couple of weeks back and finished with "twitchy" cramped legs. After reading several reviews for these compression socks I decided to get some. Ran a 20 miler yesterday and finished again with "twitchy" cramped legs, but this time I tried on the socks about 5 minutes after the completion of the run. To my amazement my legs immediately felt great! No more twitching, no more cramping. I left the socks on for about 5 hours and my legs felt great. Woke up this morning and feel like I ran a short run rather than a long run yesterday. These compression socks really do work.

              I use these to sleep in before I do any activity like run, cycle, travel, etc. I use them after I workout and during travel or when ever my calves feel like rocks! The CW-X brand always pulls through! I purchased the Pro short after I got these and love them as well. The best support out there!

                      My HS son plays basketball and was suffering from shin splints. He wore these compression socks when playing and his shins felt much better. He now wears them whenever he plays and his muscles feel less fatigue. Highly recommend these socks.

                      Just wore these along with my CWX compression shorts in my 8th marathon. The course featured many miles of ancient cobblestone roads so I was worried about cramping. The compression socks gave my calf muscles and ankles the added support that I needed. I plan on saving these for long runs (15+ miles) or future marathons.

                        I'm training for another marathon and suffered from shin splints. Compression stockings were suggested. I was shocked at the prices. I have 2 pair, one was $60 and CW-X were half the price. I can't tell the difference. A great buy!

                            I decided to try these after reading about them a running magazine and figured worth the try. Leg fatigue and soreness seems to increase with age!
                            I've had them only about a month and so far so good. I don't wear them to run. I wear them around all day to work and at home. (of course only on days when I wear pants -- not quite sure they'd go with my skirts!) I have noticed a reduction in fatigue, increased engergy, overall "feel good" in my legs.
                            Only problem I've had is wondering if they run big in size. I definitely got the right size based on my shoe size, but they do slip down over the course of the day and don't feel as tight as I thought they would. Mabye that's how they're suppose to fit. I do plan to buy another pair of another brand to compare.
                            And a little practical tip... don't wear them to sleep. They made my toes feel too crunched together!

                              I've been using compression sleeves but never really felt the benefit and thought I'd give these a try based on all the reviews. Broke down and finally bought a pair and tried them out for the first time today. They were great and they kept me warm! My calves and ankles felt awesome on the hills. Really felt like the socks were keeping everything in place and kept the blood flowing. Great investment and thinking of buying another pair soon.

                                I bought these compression socks to help with a problem I was having with calf strain and shin splints. I had tried changing shoes, but still had the same problem. I think these socks are helping, especially in cooler temperatures. Didn't give 5 stars because I think they could have just a little more compression. I wear size 7 shoe and have rather large calves for a runner and the small fits me great.

                                  I wanted to get some longer socks for cold weather, and thought that I would try the compression socks I've heard/seen a few other other runners wearing. The first time I wore them, I wasn't sure if it would feel different, but my calves felt really good throughout the six miles I ran. When I took them off after my run, I noticed that there really is a good amount of compression, and I guess that's what must have prevented my calves from getting sore. I wore them again on subsequent runs, and my calves continue to feel really good.

                                      I believe the socks work great, I just ran a marathon in them and my body recovered quickly with the socks. The only problem I have had is there is a hole in the toe of the sock. But I'm still wearing them!

I thought they might help me recover faster but I really couldn't tell any difference. I can say they did keep my lower legs warm on a cool morning. You will have to see for yourself.

                                            I use these on long run days. They seem made well, muscles feel less tired after and during a long run. I believe they make a difference. Bought a couple more pairs after running a month with these. I get shin splints when I sprint these help there too. These are the only compression socks I have tried.

                                                The socks are wonderful for the feet and legs when traveling by air or car especially for long distances. In addition, the socks are wonderful if you are a race walker in marathons and are on your feet moving quickly for hours on end. This is a great investment to provide support from below the knee to the toe.

                                                great product that really works, I was a little hesitant at first but after using these after my long runs I am 100% true beliver, only thing with these socks is they are slippery, dont walk down wood steps with them on unless you want to take the express way down on your back lol
