SL3S Compression Socks

I was given an opportunity to review SL3S FXC Butterfly Compression Socks.  My opinion is my own.  I was given a pair of sock to try out in compensation for my review. 

Okay, that is out of the way.

Yes, you want me to try a pair of 'pretty' compression socks.  Um, yeah, okay.  There was the option of sleeves or socks.  I have both and I actually prefer the socks, so that was my choice.  I also got to pick a color.  The color options are Teal, Azure Blue, Hibiscus Pink and Violet.  I know, if you know me I am a pink girl...but I chose the violet this time.  Violet with butterflies, very girly, I love it!

I wore my compression socks on the treadmill and out on the road to test the active portion.  I liked the way they felt, they were tight but not horribly so.  I felt that there was enough pressure to keep my calves feeling supported.  (Full disclosure: I ran four (4) miles on the treadmill and five (5) miles outside) 

My calves are huge at 16.5. I received a M/L.  The fit great.

They washed nicely.  I washed in my washer and then hung dry. 

I have also worn them once for recovery.  I thought they did a great job with recovery, too. 

If you have never tried compression sock/sleeves.  I highly recommend that you do so.  I believe that they help with my run and I also believe that help with recovery, especially for long distance.

Some of the benefits of compression are:
  • True Graduated Compression
  • Enhanced energy and stamina thru improved blood circulation
  • Prevention of injury by stabilizing the muscles and joints
  • Faster Regeneration due to lactate reduction

If you haven't tried compression is your chance.  SL3S is offering readers 40% off if you use the code MRTT40.
