Product Description

Innovative training gear maker Zensah has developed a series of high-performance compression clothing using a proprietary knitting process and materials. The company's bestselling dual action shin sleeve treats shin splints and calf pulls, reducing the risk of injury and alleviating pain. Light enough to allow running with shin splints, the sleeve's front is designed to prevent shin splints by incorporating a ribbed chevron pattern to help support muscles in the shin area. The deep groove ribbing also helps increase blood circulation, getting oxygen to the muscles faster, while the back of the sleeve provides support of the calf and Achilles tendon with pock and vertical line which mimic the calf muscles.



Chevron ribbing, when aligned with the middle-front of your shin, reduces risk of shin splints and associated pain.

Sizing

  • XS/S: Calf size (circumference) 9.5-to-12.5 inches
  • S/M: Calf size 12.5-to-15 inches
  • L/XL: Calf size 15 inches and up

About Compression
Graduated compression features the greatest amount of compression in the part of the garment farthest away from the heart, and the least amount compression in the part closest to the heart (for example, socks have more compression in the ankle and less in the calf). With graduated compression, veins' cross sectional area is decreased and a pressure gradient is created, which leads to physiological benefits including:

  • Enhanced blood circulation as a result of improved venous return
  • Deoxygenated blood goes back to the heart faster, which in turn helps improve blood flow of oxygen-rich blood back to the body
  • Faster recovery following strenuous exercise and improved performance, by aiding in the removal of blood lactate
  • Reduced blood lactate concentration during maximal exercise bouts, allowing for an increased lactic threshold for improved performance
  • Enhanced warm-up via increases in skin temperature
  • Reduced muscle oscillation and vibration upon ground contact, providing stability to the muscle to help prevent micro-trauma, making for a faster and easier recovery
  • Reduced effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise through alleviating swelling and inflammation
  • Increased muscle support, which increases performance through improved muscle efficiency
  • Improved leg power and vertical jump through enhanced proprioception
Studies have shown that those that have gained most by wearing compression are those transitioning from an inactive to active lifestyle. Older populations have experienced great benefits from use of compression socks and sleeves. Amateur athletes may see physiological improvements through using compression.

About Zensah
Based on the Italian word "senza," meaning "to be without," Zensah was created to help athletes at all levels improve their performance by utilizing unique, seamless sportswear designed to enhance performance and speed recovery. The company's innovative seamless design consists of a breathable, moisture-wicking fabric that draws sweat away from the body, allowing the garment and athlete to stay cool, dry, and light.

The Zensah Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve provides dual action support and compression to the calf and shin area for muscles support and pain relief. The chevron ribbing at front helps to alleviate shin splints. Graduated, pin-point compression provides shin and calf support to reduce strain and sooth cramps.

Zensah uses a special seamless knitting process for a fabric that is soft, breathlable and wicks moisture. An anti-microbial treatment keeps odors at bay.

The Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve are also valuable recovery aids since the more oxygen the muscles receive, the faster they recovery allowing athletes to push the envelope in their training. The Zensah Calf/Shin sleeve is ideal for runners, cyclists and triathletes.

Sold in single units. Purchase two if you require a pair.

    I have one leg shorter than the other and always end up with shin splints on one side when I run. I decided to give the Zensah sleeve a try. After wearing it for a few weeks, my shin splints are completely gone. I've also been able to increase my mileage without pain. The great colors are also a plus :) I know this is probably not the thing for everyone, but if you are struggling with shin splints I would definitely recommend giving this a try.

    My daughter needed a compression sleeve after a soccer injury, didn't know anything about brands or what kind to get. Did a little research on internet and went with Zensah mainly for color selection. I am very satisfied with this product, it fits snug and covers calf from ankle to below knee. The size chart is accurate and needed for proper size selection. It has not lost any of its hold, though my daughter has been wearing it almost daily, and says 'it helps a lot'. I have hand washed it twice, it retained its shape so far. I would definitely buy this product again. Amazon's price was the best plus this item qualified for free shipping.

    I love the bright color! Definitely helps with visibility with those evening and early morning runs. They don't give as much compression as I need for my long runs, but they work fine for short runs of less than 5 miles to help with calf and shin pain. I only ordered one by accident( I thought they came as a pair) and ended up having to order a second one to complete my pair from the same company. The sleeves were slightly different colors. No one really notices, but I is enough to bug me. I wish I would have bought them as a pair, maybe they would have been the exact same color.

    This is my first review, but I was pleased enough with this product that I had to give it a positive review. I am fairly new to running and got roped in to running a Ragnar (200 mile relay for 12 people). I injured myself during training, and couldn't shake my shin splints for weeks if not months. For the two days before the race, and during the race itself, I wore the Zensah compression sleeves on both legs and also covered my shins/calves in Tiger Balm. During the race I ran further than I have ever run in my entire life and I didn't have any pain from my shin splints.

    According to the sizing information I should have been an L/XL, but I went with S/M because I just didn't think my legs were that big (5'10" male, 175lbs, 16.5" calves). They fit perfect and I would definitely recommend this product to anybody who is on the fence.

    I just recently started running 5k's and had always avoided running due to shin splints so I decided to try these. What a major difference they made! Only negative is that you do not have the option of buying a pair and it is not obvious that only one comes in the package so I had to place a separate order for the other one.

    I bought this product with the hope that it would give me some relief from my shin splint pain, and not only did this compression sleeve do that but in my opinion it actually sped up my recovery. I have been bothered by recurring shin splints for the majority of my life and I have tried tape (horrible), brace-type products, and another brand compression sleeve but this particular one does the best.
    When I first received the sleeve I had a very hard time getting it on and thought perhaps I had ordered a size too small. I have very large calves for my size, but after I finally got it on it seemed to give a little and mold itself to my leg. It was much easier to get on and off after that even after hand washing and hanging dry.
