PRO Compression Socks Review & Giveaway!!

Since I started running, I've heard lots of other runners talk about how using compression socks during runs and especially after runs aids in recovery.  When PRO Compression offered to send me a pair for review, I was eager to give them a try and see if all of the talk was true. 

I wore the PRO Compression socks on a few trail runs and I loved how they fit and felt.  For one, they went all the way up to my knees which a lot of socks don't (I have long legs).  I love that about them.  
I am used to running on trails, so when I run in races, I find running on the concrete/asphalt can really be hard on my legs.  To put these socks to the test, I wore them during my first two races of this year, plus I wore them after the race to help with recovery.  This is when I really noticed the difference.  Wearing the compression socks, my legs felt great during my race AND after.  Other times when I have raced without wearing compression socks, my legs would hurt during the run and really hurt after.  There was a real difference when wearing the socks.  These socks are AMAZING!!

According to their webpage, " PRO Compression works against gravity by helping your vascular system increase blood flow which relieves discomfort and assists in recovery.  The minute you put them on, you'll understand why PRO Compression socks are the World's Best Athletic Performance Socks." 

I agree, PRO Compression socks are the best athletic performance socks.  My legs agree too!!  

Would you like a chance to win your own pair?  PRO Compression has been generous enough to offer a pair for me to give away to one of my readers.  

Love the colour!!

Aren't they cute?
