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.

I really enjoyed these socks! I wore these during the 25K Bass Pro Dogwood Trail Run in Springfield, Mo and loved them! The socks kept my legs warm and muscles felt tip-top. The compression was just right. I ordered these for support and stamina and not for shin splints or any other pain. The sizing was perfect.. I am 6' tall and ordered a small. The sock stayed in perfect place for my entire run. I would definitely recommend this sock.

The size feels smaller than expected but not unbearable.The compression is not super super tight but it does feel good. I own many different styles and fits of compression socks and the SKINS are among my favorite. They provide a cozy fit and they look very very cool. I've been tempted to buy the brands other products but they're a bit pricey.

When I run I find that my calves are always tight and painful after the run leaving me out of commission for several days. This has resulted in me not doing too much running. Now in my thirties, I'm desperate to change that and want to run several foot races this year. The only way I'm going to be able to do that is to run. Well I heard about these Skins Sox and I decided to give them a shot. Well, they are worth every penny. Every run I've been on since I began using them has resulted in no stiffness and no pain. No longer do I walk around like a duck after running, they really do exactly what they claim to do.

I found the calf guards good to run in but I would have preferred if they were a little tighter and compressed a little more. Overall I am happy with this product!

Size purchased corresponded to the chart provided as a guide for sizing.

Compared to the 2xu elite compression tights I own, the skins feel rather like a pair of socks with little compression. Although they do not fall down, they feel like they will.

I am sure they are a good product but not quite met my expectation.

Bought mainly for deadlifting. Provide just enough protection to keep my DNA off the bar. Also are useful for long days when you are on your feet and know your legs will hurt.
As for the benefits of compression, whether or not they actually truly help recovery, I am unsure. But the quality is great and they fit well.

I love the feel of these, my only complaint is the paint and colorful stitching seems to wear off fast. I purchased two pair, cause I am on my feet more than 12 hours a day. I wear them daily to help circulation.This is a great product.

Never had to wear swimming attire like this before, so using these for the first time was a little slow in learning how to put on. But now it is easy to put on and they help the blood flow the way they are suppose too. Very good product.

Don't really stay all the way up... I tend to be pulling them up all day. Long on style and kind of short on functionality.
