I use these every time I run. I'm not sure they do much in the "faster" department, but I can definitely go "farther."
I am not by any means a runner's runner. I do a mild 5k for a workout and I'm pretty beat. However, there is a BIG difference in my shin and calf fatigue running with these compared to without these. With them, at the end of the run I am just tired. Without, I feel almost crippled. I also feel like my shins and calves don't get really tired until 3/4 of the way through the 5k with these compared to about 1/4 of the way without.
I have really flat feet and may just have bad form, but these make a big difference for me.
As for choosing these over other compression sleeves, I have another pair of calf compression sleeves that were cheaper and don't really notice a difference between the two. These may be a little less elastic-y which makes them a little difficult to remove at the end of a workout, but they may make them better for their intended purpose. I don't know.

Saw them at San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon, lot's of activity at their booth. I found the sleeves make my calves feel better, not sure if this is "clinically" proven, but I see more and more people wearing sleeves or socks - particularly at triathlons.
