After reading an article in Runner's World about Compression Socks I began thinking about how my feet and legs swell on long airplane flights. I decided to get a pair for my next trip (17.5 hour flight) to South Africa. Bought a pair and could not believe how well they worked. After a few "test" days I bought another pair. Honestly - I did not buy them for running or recovery. If you do a lot of standing or sitting throughout much of the day and you have any swelling issues, you will not believe how well these things work. It is as if they make my lower legs come alive. It feels sooooo... good! The only down side is their being hard to put on and they make my feet feel just a tad on the cool side. But that goes with the territory. I hesitated trying them because I felt sure they would cut off the blood flow, and honestly I do not know the science behind them; but one thing I do know - THEY WORK! If you are thinking about getting a pair - stop it! And do it!

Wow! Very impressed
Two summers ago I came down with Achilles tendinitis and was laid low for two months. Fast forward to this fall and I'm back to running 135-145 miles a month. The week after a hard 10K tune-up race I began to feel pain in my Achilles at the heel again. Among the recommended treatment was a pair of these socks.
Went out for an easy 15 mile run today. Completely pain-free including post run. I'm amazed at how much less tired my legs feel in general. Very sold. While these are expensive as socks, they're not nearly as expensive as having your training knocked down due to injury or trouble recovering from long runs.
I'm sold enough to be ordering another pair.
I've been CWX user for years but at recent 10miler race expo I met a rep from CEP and did something I've never done before - wear a new pair on race day! Well, not only these pair held up well, did far better than my old trusted cwx by far! My ankle felt kept in place yet foot felt nicely compressed. I even wore after the race walking around town...and even the next day I wore 5 hour flight home! I just wish RRS will carry shorter version of the socks, which seems very hard to find on-line!
I LOVE these compression socks!!!
I love these socks! I already had the CEP compression sleeves for my occasional shin splints. But when I started training for a 10k, plus I'm a nurse, I figured these socks could help- and they are incredible!!! I wear them during a run and afterwards for recovery and my shins rarely ache anymore :). I also wear them at work now. Loving these socks and already have more coming in the mail!
Now THAT's a sock.
Expensive, no doubt. But I'm a pilot and spend 12 hrs a day at altitude. If they help stop deep vein thrombosis, I'm in!
They are WAY better than the RRS version of compression socks, so the money seems justified.
The material is thick enough, doesn't slide, and actually has some comfortable softness to it.
The fit is snug, and at the end of the day I feel a noticeable muscle performance boost.
Somewhere out there..
I purchased my first pair and came back for a second pair. The compression feature works great. Once I get them on, they feel great and allow me to run longer and recover from runs faster than standard running socks. I hope I can find them here for a long time, because I intend to purchase them again. And again.
These Things Work!
These feet and lower leg hugging compression socks are wonderful. When you're running, you hardly notice your legs. Fatigue and cramping are greatly reduced. There is a lot of science that seems to go behind this product, and it works. Performance is definitely enhanced.

Bought as stop gap for case of DVT (yes runners can get dvt too)
Expert who did fitting for prescription compression socks commented that these would be fine to use as fill ins as compression ok (though 10 mmHg lower than prescription) .
Measuring your calf is key!
Great alternative to compression tights for warm weather
I suffer from Achilles Tendonitis and I have been recently having some muscle cramping in my lower legs. These seem to help manage the Achilles Tendon and have definitely helped with the muscle cramping. I wear compression tights in the winter - but they were just too hot for the summer - these work great. As others have said, they are a bit of a challenge to put on (since I don't wear pantyhose I suppose), but they need to be to do their job. I like the look and feel when they are on and so far they are just fine after being washed.
They really do make a difference
Feeling the wear and tear after longer runs, these socks make a huge difference in how I feel both during and after a run. Should have bought some sooner but it took me a while to get it.
Excellent performance and Quality!
Had 2 pair of the previous generation and they are still great. No signs of wear anywhere. The 2.0 is even better. Very snug fit adds to natural bounce in the stride. Use the dark lines to help get them on straight.
I am going to buy more pairs - helped my Achilles Tendonitis
I got these because my long standing Achilles Tendonitis was flaring up again and I was looking for something that would allow me to keep running. They definitely have made a difference - I still have to ice the tendon down when I am finished my run, but I am able to complete my run without being stopped by the pain. They do take a little work to put on - but they wouldn't do their job if that wasn't true.
These socks keep me running longer
The first time I wore these socks I felt that I could run an extra couple of miles without any additional fatigue. They fit great, give great support and really make a difference
I run 16-20 miles a week and my feet and legs feel great while wearing these socks. I was hesitant to try but I'm glad I did.

The socks performed extremely well. The Achilles support is very good, and they work great during exercise and during recovery.
Buy 2 pair at start of new training
I buy 2 pair at the start of each new training cycle. They are as important of an investment at shoes and nutrition.
Great running socks!
Love the socks, enjoy running in them and will soon buy a couple of other pairs
Excellent fit and feel.
Great for running, hiking, hunting long drives and flights. Hold shape and compression.
Need Compression dur to DVT!!!
On our daily 5.5 mile walks!!! Complete compression!!! Hard to put on!!!
Great leg support
Great support after achilles sugery starting to run again
I will continue to use these on walks!!!
Thank you for being for informative and helpful!!!
Use these for trail runs. It takes a bit to get them on and off but that is kind of the point with compression socks.
Best sock on the market
Best sock out there forget all the others
Expensive but works.
Worth the money
