Like, don't love. Good, but tight
I'm conflicted writing this review. Overall, this is a great product, however, I'm having troubles with it. I own 3 pairs of this style and 3 of the calf-only compressions. I'm a nurse so I'm on my feet most of the time. This product, both styles, help so much. I love the design of this product because it also covers your ankles. The only reason I questioned buying this particular style is because it costs more and I'm worried I'll wear out the heel part (like how you wear out socks). Time will tell here. Overall, I love the product, but my issue is the sizing. The calf-only product comes in L/XL combo and because I have large calves, this is perfect. This product, however, only comes in a size Large and that is what I purchased. The compression part is AMAZING and sized perfectly, however, the top and bottom elastic bands are VERY tight - so much so that I've wound up with skin welts on my upper calf/behind my knee because the elastic is so incredibly tight. I can't wear this product for more than 10 hours. Please note, this has more to do with the sizing and my anatomy than the product itself - just make sure you check the size guidelines when ordering. For the ankle portion, I have to make sure it is correctly positioned on my foot otherwise that can get too tight as well - my toes went numb once because I didn't position it correctly. Overall, it's a great product and I would recommend it, I just wish the elastic bands came in a size XL while maintaining the current calf compression that the product has.
My surgeon stated he wore your products while standing long periods during operations. I bought on his recommendation to wear following procedure and for a long air flight few weeks after. I live in FL and need breathable material. This product is cooler to wear than I remember other compression hose to feel.
Ankle/calf compression sleeve
Definitely a powerful compression. Did have to gradually progress to wearing them from shorter timelines to longer timelines.
I love this product. My feet are wide, so I found that while I'm running I have to fold up the ankle portion, so its essentially just the regular sleeve. But after running I unfold the sleeve over my foot and it feels amazing! I feel like a whole new runner after using these.
I'm an older runner who has lots of miles on my legs. Socks give support and cut down on post run fatigue.
