Hey everyone! Remember that giveaway I mentioned last week? Well, today seems like the perfect day :)
You all know how much I love compression socks. I wear them while traveling and during workouts, long runs and races. I wear them to recover. In my mind, there's no such thing as owning too many pairs of socks!
I was recently asked by SLS3 to review a pair of their socks and I jumped on the opportunity. I love trying new products and this is a brand I didn't know a lot about. They sent me a pair of their Butterfly Compression Socks and I immediately fell in love with the style. I'm a sucker for anything bright colored and girly. These socks are both :)
Here's what SLS3 has to say about their compression socks:
SLS3 Butterfly compression socks boost bloodflow by about 34%.
This increases oxygen delivery to the working muscles to enhance their
performance. The circulation improvements also help the body eliminate
metabolic waste products like lactic acid more easily. The combination of these effects allows you to work longer and harder, delaying the onset of fatigue.
SLS3 Butterfly compression socks offer more targeted, significant support to
the achilles tendons, tibias, calves and ankles, thus boosting the
ability to reduce common ankle and foot injuries.
They are recommended for running, cycling, walking, triathlon, skiing, traveling and lots of other uses. The supportive
effect and compression of SLS3 Butterfly compression socks reduce muscle
vibration drastically, which leads to less soft tissue damage and less
sore muscles. Your recovery time will be significantly reduced.
Here are my thoughts: I put them to the test during a workout, a long run and recovery after a race and they held up great for each! I really like the way the socks fit - and actually forgot I had them on while running, which is ideal in my mind. I never want to be thinking about the apparel I have on when I'm trying to focus on running. They stay up perfectly without any slipping or bunching - two of my pet peeves.
The one thing I will note is that these socks are a bit shorter in calf length than other socks I have tried. Maybe I have a long calf, but I felt like an extra inch of sock might have been nice.
How would you like to win a pair of these awesome socks for yourself? I'm giving away one pair of pink Butterfly Compression Socks, size small/medium. These socks are geared toward women, but guys, I won't judge if you decide to enter to win a pair. You can always give them to the lady in your life as a gift ;)
