I love my socks. I put them on after my longer runs. Really helps with recovery, and keeping my lower legs and feet from swelling.

I love compression anything! I just recently got some saucony recovery tights because I just can not face an ice bath emoticon after long runs in the winter and they really help. emoticon

I love compression socks, I do all my longer runs in them and many shorter ones. They are comfortable and really do seem to help with recovery.

I struggled with shin splints when I first started running, so I invested in some calf sleeves. They stopped the shin splints completely. Now I won't run without them, even for short distances. I got mine on Amazon for cheap and have used them every run for seven months and they've maintained their shape and hold well. These are the ones I use:

I run with compression socks all the time and find that they help tremendously. Even if it is a short run, I find that wearing them helps the recovery time afterwards. For long runs, I find they are a must as I have less calf pain and I do not feel any major pain until I hit 11-13 miles. CEP is a great brand, but there are others out there that work as well.

Has anyone tried compression socks or the calf sleeves? I have thought about trying them out mainly for races or my longer runs but don't know about them.
