Use these compression calf sleeves on my long runs. I can tell a huge difference when I don't use them. My legs get tired quicker without them. Best use has been when adding mileage or after an intense interval session.
They are tight in the right places and breathe well. If you are on the lower range of the sizing, go for the smaller size. I got mine for $25 on sale, so the price was right!
My wife also steals them when she has a 12 hour shift at work.
Bought these to wear on shorter/long runs. They are very easy to put on and easier than an actual compression sock. I like these because they are cooler to me than an actual sock and feel they work better in the hotter months with a lighter weight sock. They still serve the same purpose without the added weight of a full sock.
Pick the right size!
Seems like a great product, but going by the sizing guide I picked a Medium, and found that after a mile or so they would not stay up, and I gave up stopping to pull them up. Needless to say I cannot comment on their effectiveness to reduce the pain from lactic acid after a long run. Choose your size carefully, and if in doubt, go with the smaller size!

My first set of Compression sleeves were CES brand which cost more that these. I bought them to help with shin splints. The CW-X are OK but I get much more support from the CES brand. If you are fighting injuries (sore calves, shin splints, etc.) I would recommend CES even though they cost more they are worth it.
Thinner than most
I like the thinner CWX styles for compression.
good compression, doesn't snag easily, great for longer runs
