Product Description

Product Description

Unlike normal athletic socks, SKINS gradient compression socks are the perfect performance enhancer for any activity where your legs are pushed to the limit. SKINS Engineered Gradient Compression offers targeted calf muscle support and improves circulation, delivering more oxygen to your active muscles. The increased blood flow helps reduce the build up of blood lactate to keep you going harder for longer and recover faster. The engineered gradient compression technology in SKINS Essentials is specifically designed to increase blood flow and oxygen delivery to working muscles, allowing you to train harder and perform better. SKINS targeted muscle support also helps prevent muscle vibration and oscillation during activity, reducing your risk of injury and helping you recover faster with less post-exercise muscle soreness. All Essentials products use SKINS unique fabrics, flatlock stitching details and superior construction to deliver maximum benefit and muscle support with unmatched comfort, breath-ability and temperature and moisture regulation.

Why wear SKINS?

Compression Basics

The primary benefit of compression garments is on the body’s circulatory system. Wearing compression applies pressure to your limbs, which helps to increase blood flow velocity under the compressed area, forcing movement back to the heart.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ruckychang on February 24, 2014
I recently purchased the Skins compression calf sleeve, recovery tights and these socks on a recommendation from a friend. I have to say that they have all exceeded my expectations. These socks are extremely comfy when working out and provide all the benefits of compression without any of the negatives. I highly recommend them and can't wait to throw them on for my next run. Every little bit of motivation helps and Skins is certainty keeping me motivated by making very high quality gear at very reasonable prices.

I primarily bought these socks to wear them inflight and to wear them at home after a long hard run. I travel to and from the US every other month and that is like 20 odd hours of flying, I would notice my feet would always swell up after the flight. A physiotherapist recommended me to wear compression socks on the flight. It worked!. As for the brand, this is worth the price, I know there are other brands out there..I even have a 2XU compression sock. The 2XU fits a bit more snug as compared to a small in SKINS. A good buy, I just did not find it snug enough.

Having a bike or run on my calender 4 days a week meant that I was lacking in the compression recovery department. I purchased these to supplement my 2XU calf compression and have found they do an excellent job.

Recently I read a study that this type of compression is nothing more than placebo, but I will take this sugar pill any day if for nothing else than to make me think I feel better

Not an athlete, ordering as a 64 year old woman with lymphedema in my legs. The fabric of these socks is rough and they were too large. Am returning and not reordering.
