      I’ve been having all sorts of blogging technical issues this morning ๐Ÿ™‚ I replied in Marcia’s comment below – whoops!
      We can’t wait to rock multiple pairs in the Bourbon Chase relay this October! Hope they get custom socks!!!

  2. I like to wear pro compression socks during long runs.

  3. I have yet to try a pair! As my distance has increased I can see why these would be a plus! Great review ladies!

    I’m not a runner so I’ve never tried compression socks.

    • MB MB says:

      Neither is Mike’s wife, and she has a pair ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s what is so great about these socks — they work for so many things! I love it that several of the gals who stand all day wear them for work, and like i mentioned to Marcia below, they are so great for long plane or car trips.

  6. Marcia says:

    I love them! I even bought my hubby a pair for flying around Asia and he loved them too. I especially love all the cool color combos they come up with.

    Deborah – we are right there with you! Which Ragnar?!?

  8. I am a CEP fan as I work with them and they are medical grade and I think they are pretty awesome. I love the patterns and colors of the ProCompression ones, too! I wear them for run, recovery and travel. They are awesome!

  9. I am with Deborah! I may get a divorce solely based on my sock addiction! HAHA! I have a gazillion pairs of Pro and I am between the lime green and purple socks for my first marathon this weekend!

    I love PRO Compression Socks! I have several pairs and wear them during training runs 14 miles and longer and also during races. My favorite are the plain white ones but I love all the fun colors and prints the brand offers ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I LOVE compression sock, it doesn’t much matter the brand, I have about 5 or 6 different brands. I wear them on most of my runs, but especially my long runs and sometimes during marathon training for recovery. I feel like they make such a difference in my training!

  12. Great review on them, love having all the different people’s take on it too!!
    I have never used compression socks, I am probably one of the last people on earth to never try them. I don’t now why really, it’s definitely something I will be considering in the future!

    I have never tried compression socks before, but I might have to now! And they are so cute!!

  14. Love Pro Compression, I have a few pair and I have the calve sleeve. I used them when doing half marathons. Very good sock and I sometimes wear them while resting my legs after a race. Great post ๐Ÿ™‚

    I absolutely love the PRO Compression socks! I got a free pair for review and wore them almost every night for a month after they arrived. Even for just hanging around at night they made my legs feel great. I did have a bit of sticker shock when I saw the price, but they seem to be holding up really well and they aren’t stretched out at all after wearing them tons.

    • Annette Annette says:

      You got a free pair?! That’s fantastic!! I agree with you about the sticker shock. I’m pretty frugal so I’ve always purchased the sock of the month. And like you, I’ve been so pleased with how they’ve held up. They are definitely worth the money!

  16. Ima Mosier says:

    I love all of the cute sock pictures. I have never used pro compression but I always mean to pick up a pair. You have convinced me.

  17. I live in my PRO Compression socks after long runs and races. They are perfect for helping speed up recovery!

  18. Annette Annette says:

    Absolutely! I think they make a big difference!

  19. Sarah H says:

    I love, love, love my Pro Compression socks as well! I usually wear mine on long runs or harder trail runs that are going to include a lot of climbing…or anytime it’s cold. I love that you all said you wear them on airplanes. I’m actually writing this as I sit on an airplane and I really wish I had a pair on! I should have read this earlier!

    • Annette Annette says:

      You won’t make that mistake again! ๐Ÿ™‚ We LOVE them too! Guest dude Mike’s wife doesn’t run, but she likes to travel. She has a pair to wear on planes. I appreciate how versatile these socks are!

  20. I love my PRO Compression socks! I was sent a pair to review last year and they really helped during my Dopey Challenge training and recovery.

    • Annette Annette says:

      You did the Dopey Challenge???? You rock! I’m considering that race series as a present to myself for a milestone birthday. I’m scared and excited about it!

  21. I LOVE Pro Compression. Seriously, I am wearing them under my pants at work! They are such a great recovery tool. I swear by them.

  22. I’ve never tried these but they sound like they work great. Both my jobs require me to be on my feet, and some days my feet and legs hurt from standing so much. I might have to give them a try now.

  23. Love Pro Compression. I have a pink pair that I wear for recovery days and Nuun gave us a pair with the logo on theme when I ran Hood To Coast with them. I don’t wear them to run in, I find for me they are better to wear after long runs.

    • Annette Annette says:

      I think they’re excellent for recovery. I was hesitant to run in them, but I actually like it. In the summer, they can make me a little to hot, which is why I like wearing them for winter runs!

  24. I love ProCompression socks! I wear them on runs 13 miles or longer, and during recovery. I used to wear Zensah compression sleeves but don’t like them much anymore; I much prefer the sock.

  25. Annette Annette says:

    That’s EXACTLY like me. I really liked that brand of sleeves until I tried ProCompression socks. I haven’t looked back.

  26. Farrah says:

    I love colorful, crazy patterns for socks! :D! I don’t run, but I’ve been thinking it’d be a great idea to wear them during plane rides and super-long car trips! :O

  27. I love compression socks. I actually wear the sleeves because I like to wear my own socks if I wear them on a run. I like Zensah and Pro Compression sleeves. I’ll wear them for cold weather runs and recovery from long runs. No gimmick in my opinion!

  28. Barbara says:

    I won a pair of Saucony compression socks in a race and they completely sold me and started me on the compression road. For long runs they help with fatigue and calf muscle soreness. They are also a great thing to wear for plane trips. Keeps those ankles from swelling and your legs feel refreshed. I have added several pair of socks to my collection but I do hear those Shamrock socks calling my name.
