Product Review – PRO Compression Marathon Socks

Exciting news! Today is my one year blogiversary! I know, totally worth being pumped over. And for my blogiversary I’m reviewing a super awesome product which comes with a kickass discount just for everyone!

If you’re active in the athletic world and you haven’t heard of Pro Compression yet, you’re clearly training under a rock somewhere. Pro Compression is a brand that makes all sorts of compression gear including socks, calf sleeves, arm sleeves, and active wear.

Their compression wear is designed to compress and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. This means it helps prevent cramping and increase circulation during activity and promote recovery if you pull something on after a hard workout or race.

I’ve been super intrigued by compression socks for a long time now but just hadn’t gotten around the biting the bullet on them yet. I love to wear my compression tights after a race and often times even sleep in them, so I know I love me some compression gear. But when I got the opportunity to review the Marathon Socks for Pro Compression I jumped!

Yay socks!

I get way too excited when things show up on my door step for me. I mean really! New awesome stuff is pretty much the best thing ever. And running socks make my heart happy.

They even fit my chubby girl legs!

Part of my apprehension to ever buy compression socks is because I’m… how can I put this nicely… thick..? I’m a bit on the stocky side and carry most of my weight from the hips down, so my legs are a bit thicker than you’re average 20-something year old athlete, but I am happy to report these did in fact go over my tubbo calves. So major props to Pro Compression there.

I opted to really put these socks through their paces and my first time wearing them was in a race. Yeah, yeah, yeah, nothing new on race day. I didn’t really think much of it since the race start and finish were only like two blocks from my house, I’ve run the course route like a gazillion times, and I can just walk from my house to the venue in less than five minutes.

I’ll have a full race report of the particular race I ran them through tomorrow. But what you should know is that they were great!

I had a bit of numbness in my feet for the first mile or so, which is something I get from time to time and I won’t attribute it to the socks since I’ve dealt with the tinglies before on plenty of other occasions.

I’ve been fighting some calf tightness on and off all season and I was really excited to see how these effected that. And I’m happy to report that at no time during my race did I have any cramping or tightness. My legs felt great the whole race and I feel like they provided me with all the support I need.

  2. I love Pro Compression- they’re a great company with awesome products. I have the arm sleeves that I use for mud runs and it really helps keep my muscles warmed up so they’re not sore the next day. I nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger award! Check out my latest post for details 🙂

  3. I’m going to have to buy a pair! I’m thin but have big calves and small feet so usually when I buy compression socks they are way too tight!

      I have big calves and hadn’t bought any compression socks because I just assumed nothing would fit, but these did! And without strangling my legs to boot!
