What makes Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves Unique?
While other compression leg sleeves feature flat fabric that provide only compression, Zensah’s Compression Leg Sleeves feature chevron ribbing on the front of the leg sleeves (v-shaped pattern). This provides direct support to the shin area, similar to the way athletic tape would provide shin splint relief. The leg sleeves also feature micro-ribbing the back of the leg sleeves to provide direct calf support to reduce cramping and fatigue.
Innovative training gear maker Zensah has developed a series of high-performance compression clothing using a proprietary knitting process and materials. The company's leg sleeves are stitched using Pin-Point Compression, gradient pressure developed by a professional athletic trainer that uses wide ribbing in the front for optimal shin support, and snug ribbing in the back for calf support. Silver ions in the unique Zensah Fabric helps regulate skin temperature and fight bacteria to keep your sleeves fresh. Particularly useful for runners, cyclists, and triathletes, these compression sleeves increase blood flow to the muscles of the lower leg, circulating oxygen into your muscles in order to reduce fatigue during, and speed recovery following, your workouts.
- 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
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
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 price is a little steep (and they're not exactly sexy to wear at night), but it got me back running without a lot of downtime.
I have monster calves at 20 inches and the XL fit me perfect. They were just tight enough without hurting. They've stretched out a little bit since I bought them, but that actually feels a little better.
These calf/shin sleeves are amazing!! They pretty much relieve the aches and pains I have in my shin whenever I jog/run. Although they haven't necessarily cured me of the shin splints, I won't run without these! With them on, I have been able to work out longer and with more intensity than I did without them when I felt the pain. I used to have really bad shin splints - definitely the kind you know you shouldn't run through. I felt like I tried almost everything, except for taping my shin. But who wants to do that every time? It's so tedious! Then I found these and they were the perfect solution. The fit is great-you'll barely feel like you're wearing anything. I have bigger calves and went with the large and they aren't too loose or too restricting. They feel perfectly sized with just enough stretch. The price is great too. Great value for the money!!
The long story:
I discovered them online while searching for new running shoes. A year prior I had shin splints so bad that even just walking would hurt. I tried therapy on my shins and even got orthotic insoles (that were SUPER expensive at about $350 a pair) to try to alleviate the pain. I'm flat footed so it probably adds to the stress...so I got fitted for new shoes; it all helped but not to the point where I could jog more than a quarter of a mile before the intense pain would come back. I stopped running/jogging for half a year and the pain finally went away, but as soon as I got back to exercising again, they started hurting a lot. It's definitely been better than a year before, but on a treadmill, if I was going more than a 4.5 speed (more like a speed walk or super slow jogging speed) it was already feeling too fast. The weekend I got these sleeves, I tried them on and went on the treadmill for some interval training. I was amazed to reach 6.0, then 7.0, and then 8.0 in the same day on the treadmill. It wasn't for very long (give or take a minute) but literally just a few days before that I couldn't even go past 4.5 without cringing in pain!! It was like magic! I've been a believer in compression sleeves ever since then.
I HIGHLY recommend these to anyone who has any calf or shin issues. But for people without it too it will even help with post workout recovery or even if your legs are constantly tired from a long day of standing/walking.
When I added these to my running clothes, my calves responded to the compression very well. Since that first experience, I have stopped and started running, bringing back the calve issue. However, with these compression socks, the pain was less and much shorter lived.
That is not to say they only have benefit if you run barefoot. Certainly not! The benefit was particularly acute with my situation.
The build quality seems to be good. I do not dry them after washing, so that may help.
Perhaps the only drawback to them is running in the heat of the Summer. In Texas, we called that "May to October". They can be a bit warm, but you get used to that.
If you are just starting running, get these! If you have been running for a while, are looking at the product, and have made it to my comment, get these. You are already here, which means the benefits are known to you and you want them.
