This worked for me, too!
, August 3, 2010
After reading the above 2 reviews, I felt as though the reviewers were describing me. I took up running a year ago but I have to take frequent week-long breaks because my left shin just can't support that kind of activity. I ran 3 miles last week, and my shin KILLED me afterwards. The pain was against the bone, moving up behind my kneecap. Icing had no effect and, a few days later, the pain was getting worse -- not better.
I went to three different stores looking for a shin splint compression (Target, Walgreens, and a local athletic store) and none of them carried a compression wrap for shin splints.
When I tried on this compression wrap, it felt really good. The pressure was off the bone. I can actually walk upstairs again!
The wrap hasn't slipped on me at all. I think that has to do with the shape of your leg and how tightly you wrap the compression, instead of the compression itself, although I haven't tried running with it yet.
Also: the product looks a lot nicer than in the picture. The picture makes it look thin and gray, but it's dark black and made out of sturdy material.
No regrets here! I definitely recommend this product.
