Once upon a time, a runner put on her first pair of compression socks after a long run and fell in love at first wear. As her husband says, it was like “a hug for her legs.” She wore her one pair of black compression socks for recovery during training for her first marathon, but that just wasn’t enough. She added a few pairs to her collection and started wearing them during her runs, too. She saw improvements in her running and recovery and she had way too much fun pairing socks with outfits, especially for races!
Ok, enough of the third person…
I think you get the picture: I really love my compression socks. One brand has won me over with their great product, fabulous designs, and winning attitude all over social media. I’m talking about PRO Compression, which shouldn’t be a surprise if you follow me on Instagram or anywhere else! I’m super excited to announce today that I’ve been chosen to be a PRO Compression Ambassador for 2017!
There are plenty of studies that show the positive effects of compression socks, including combatting muscle soreness and fatigue and speeding up recovery. On top of that, PRO Compression features moisture-wicking fabric (to prevent blisters) and true graduated compression (the amount of compression decreases as the distance to the heart decreases to aid circulation).
The scientific reasons are great, but let’s talk about the designs. I already own many, many pairs, but I want every new one they release because they are FABULOUS. I currently have at least five more pairs on my wish list. PRO Compression also releases a Sock of the Month each month, so I know I’ll be coveting another pair once February 1st hits!
What does me being a PRO Compression Ambassador mean for you? I’ll be sharing the Sock of the Month each of the month, along with special discounts, race meet-ups, and more both here and on social media! Stay tuned because it is going to be an AWESOME year! Whether you’re training for a marathon or on your feet all day as a nurse, doctor, teacher, etc., compression socks are for YOU!
Do you wear compression socks? Own any PRO Compression? What are your favorite designs? (The Gibblers – the rainbow ones shown above – are a must have, in my opinion!)
