Pro Compression Socks Review and Giveaway

As I have recently gotten back into running, I am always on the lookout for cool, new to me products that are great for running. In the last couple of months, I found Pro Compression which is a company that sells compression socks which can help your running performance.

Before I was sent a pair to review, I had actually purchased a pair myself which I wore for the race photo above. I ended up loving them and wanted to share them with you here on the blog.

What are the benefits of compression socks?
Compression socks help to improve blood flow which then results in better and more consistent performance with less fatigue and faster, more efficient recovery. Sounds great, right? They also help to give support to critical muscles and tendons to reduce inflammation and soreness.

I was sent a pair of the marathon compression socks to review from Pro Compression. These socks are quite expensive ($50 per pair) but honestly, do an amazing job. I wore these for my first 5k race in 6 years and actually ended up winning it! I believe that these socks truly do help.
I also have worn them on a few runs and always feel stronger and faster when I wear them. I also feel less sore after wearing these compared to when I do not wear them. Most of my runs are between 4-6 miles.

These socks are full length and go up almost to my knees which helps to maximize blood flow. They have a non-slip design which is great because who wants their socks falling down during a run? They come in different sizes so that they fit you tightly but not too tight. They are very comfortable and supportive. These socks also offer moisture control which is perfect in this summer heat.
Honestly, I cannot believe that I had never heard of compression socks until recently! They are amazing and I would highly recommend them.
