One of my favorite brands is PRO Compression. The brand's Marathon Sock is my favorite and the perfect blend of style and function.
Thanks to PRO Compression for sending me these socks! They are awesome!
So at this point, you're probably wondering why you should give compression socks a try. To sum it up, these socks help improve blood flow in your lower legs and feet. Think of it this way - the better your muscles are supplied with blood and oxygen, the better they'll perform. They also help increase stability and provide a nice little hug for your feet and calves!
Racing with the help of PRO Compression socks!
Compression socks are great for runners, of course, but they can also benefit other types of athletes - triathletes, cyclists and even golfers. Walkers, hikers or those who just spend a lot of time on their feet can also benefit from wearing these socks.
Keep it tight!
A question I'm often asked is do the socks stay up during running? My PRO Compression socks always stay up, unlike some other brands I've used in the past. They are also super durable. Case in point - earlier this spring I took a nasty fall on the pavement during a run. While my legs and gloves were all torn up from the spill, my socks survived without a single snag or tear and my calves were spared unlike the rest of my legs!
PRO Compression socks come in a variety of fun colors and prints. If a tall sock isn't your thing, the brand also carries calf sleeves and low-cut socks.
