Comments about Zensah Shin/Calf Support Sleeve Injury Recovery:

Started running again after a long break and started getting shin splints. Heard good things about using shin sleeves, so tried these out. Wear them when I run, and keep them on afterwards to help recovery. When combined with RICE, have greatly reduce my shin pain and allowed me to keep running. Definitely recommend for those experiencing shin pain when first getting into running.

    Comments about Zensah Shin/Calf Support Sleeve Injury Recovery:

    I was surprised when the order arrived and there was only one sleeve. It was not clearly stated when ordering, since many of these come in pairs...like socks... 2 legs = 2 sleeves, I thought. When I needed these for shin splints, one did not do the trick...I ended up ordering the other one, and by that time the product was a bit pricey. Other than that I was satisfied with the product.

        Comments about Zensah Shin/Calf Support Sleeve Injury Recovery:

        It is a good product. I tore my soleus (smaller and deeper of the calf muscles) and this product did help to heal. But sizing is terrible. Really, it goes from medium (up-to 15" calf diameter) to large/extra large for 15" and up. Well, my calf is 15.2" and I got the L/XL but I wish it would be a bit tighter. In other words, sizing should have less increments, at least there should a large and then an extra large.
        I can't comment on how well it performs to keep calfs/shins happy in long runs but it felt good to take a first run after the injury wearing it.

            After injuring my calf last fall and light rehab over the winter, I needed something to help protect my calf as I increase my miles in preparation for the summer. This sleeve is providing the support my calf and shin appreciate during my run, but is also comfortable and helpful after the run.

            I am glad I purchased this sleeve. This along with my foam roller are now regular parts of my regimine.

                  Comments about Zensah Shin/Calf Support Sleeve Injury Recovery:

                  I used this to run after having major calf pain. It helped during the run and also in recovery. I am training up for a marathon and have had consistent pain in just my right calf which kept me from being able to continue on my runs. This compression sleeve I used for 3 days straight and worked great. I even did my 12 mile run without it and didn't suffer from the affects of muscle pain as much anymore. This sleeve was comfortable and supportive. It dries quickly as well.

                  I am short and used the small size and it fit perfectly. (5'3")

                          I had calf strains while training for my 4th marathon. Bought these and the calves quit tightening up while running. Legs even felt better after wearing these on my 20+ mile long runs.

                                  I just ran my first 5K today. I have been training for 8 weeks and suffered shin splints from day 1. I ran through the pain but knew it wasn't good and could get worse. I finally bought 2 sleeves last week after reading the reviews & hoping they were not made up. I ran in them this past Monday for my final training run, I was shocked that I had no pain. Today, no pain!! I will never run without them again! Now that I don't have pain, I am going to keep running! (Bonus: Made in the USA!)

                                    Comments about Zensah Shin/Calf Support Sleeve Injury Recovery:

                                    After a run, I have a tendency to swell up from the knees down which of course leads to a lot of pain. But by wearing the calf compression sleeves and a knee brace for a couple of hours after a run, I prevent all that and can keep to a regular schedule of running. I love to run early in the morning but being older, it means to take extra precautions to prevent pain in my arthritic knee and post ankle bone graft surgery. I can continue doing what I love to do. Thanks!

                                      I recently picked up running again after twisting my ankle. I have a tendency to start out running too fast and ending up with shin splints. I read other reviews for these sleeves and thought I would give them a try. So far, so good. I have yet to start running again but as I was getting shin splints while speed walking, I have felt them diminish almost to nothing while walking, I have high hopes that my shin splints issues won't return when I start to run again. I find them comfortable to wear before, during and after my walk. If I had time to wear them longer during recovery, I really feel they would help even more. They aren't tight (read: uncomfortable) as I was half-expecting but feel like knee high socks. They are a bit warm but that is expected. What I like is that I can actually feel more increased blood flow in the shin area when I wear them. Would purchase again.

                                        I purchased this product after a calf injury and it seems to help. I would recommend it for those with calf issues.

                                          I Run several times a week and have been getting very painful cramps/calf pain only in my left leg after my runs. So I bought this sleeve and used it for the first time tonight (7/11/13) and no pain at all. So far so good. Hope it stays like this!

                                            The only problem I had was that I mistakingly ordered one thinking it was the set, no worries though I had a second one within 24 hours.

                                            I wear them when I am out walking for a little extra support.

                                              Does a great job speesing up recovery! Wore it on the left leg the first run and the necxt day my left leg was doing much better than my right. The next run I switched to the right with similar results. One of the better running investments I have made.

                                                  Seems to have helped a lot, although, of course, didn't do a controlled experiment (took time off, biked).

                                                  I got both sizes. I'm 6'2", and my calf measures exactly 14.5". The smaller one seems better -- what I wear when exercising. I wear the larger one at other times.

                                                        I'm back to training for multiple marathons, and so have also returned to doing double digit long runs in Central Park every Saturday. For the first few weeks I wasn't wearing these sleeves while I ran, even though I own two other pairs and knew their magic. However in the past few weeks, after receiving this newest pair, I have worn them through my long run and then for the entire 24 hours (even sleeping!) afterwards. By the time I take them off the next day, my legs feel like they never ran the day before. It's truly amazing, especially in comparison to the weeks when I didn't wear them. I wouldn't say these make me faster or last longer, but they sure as hell cut down on recovery time. If you've never worn them but are into distance running or hard workouts, I'd highly recommend trying them out. I'd also recommend the Trigger point roller in conjunction with these. These sleeves and that roller are my two most highly prized running splurges.

                                                        Just a note: I have sometimes used these only after a workout but not during... i.e. I come home and put them on to try to speed recovery overnight. I have noticed that this has not worked nearly as well for me as when I wear them straight through the workout and then into the next day. I wonder if by the time I get them on the lactic acid has already set up camp? Not sure what it is, but I'd recommend these for both during your workout and afterwards. The first time you take them off to fresh springy legs when you should have dull dead legs you'll thank me :P

                                                        This calf/shin sleeve feels good and works great. It makes your calf/shin relax and recover fast.

                                                          Always had shim splints when running, wore one on my right leg. Ran for a few days and only had splints in the left leg. Will be purchasing a second soon.

                                                            Don't understand why this item is sold as one sleeve. Ordered thinking it would come as a pair like all of the other items. Had to turn around and order another which was inconvenient and a bit annoying.

                                                            I'm an ultra runner-short runs are usually between 14-16 miles. I was having really bad shin,calf,ankle and knee pain that kept me from being able to run as much as I wanted to. I have never worn these before and was skeptical. All my running buddies swear by them. Well, since getting these sleeves I have NO pain!! I'm back to running and it feels good!! Before running in them I thought they were too loose and was about to return them-so glad I didnt because they are perfect. Could probably be a bit more tight but then again probably not. During run they are the perfect fit!

                                                              I love my Zensah sleeves. Upon using them the first time after a run I immediately noticed relief from soreness in my calfs and shins. I use them almost everyday and I'm the kind of person who hates most things that feel too tight or constricting. They're incredibly comfortable. I also dislike being too hot and these still allow for great airflow to my lower legs. I'll probably try wearing them on a long run to see how they feel. Probably a good idea to pick up a second pair for the future, just in case.

                                                                I gave this a try for a calf strain. I was already a fan of compression post-runs, but I have never worn compression during a run. I got this sleeve as an alternative to wearing one full compression sock and one regular sock. Somehow, it made sense at the time. I also figured this sleeve would be easy to remove mid-run if it was bugging me. As it was, I never removed it and the sensation of something being wedged up under my calf muscle never came during a 10 miler+ hills. I don't want to say this sleeve has magical properties....but it might. I ran yesterday without it (just an easy 6) and my calf was fairly happy though I'll probably use the sleeve for my longer runs this week, until it completely heals. I suggest giving it a go, as it certainly can't hurt. Your muscle stays warm with a soft hug while you run...
