Skins Compression Socks
on September 7, 2011
I have owned two other brands of compression socks and needed a new pair, so based on solid reviews, I purchased the Skins Bio Compression Socks. As an avid cyclist, my calves are often very stiff and I wear compression socks during the day, as I am on my feet, as a means of recovery. The Skins socks offered virtually no compression. They even slid down my calves. I am tall and have large calves, so sizing down would not have worked. The material is not nearly as supportive as other brands and there is no design pattern to ensure it is tighter in specific areas on your leg. I would most definitely not recommend.
