Pro Compression Review

So, I've been hearing everyone rave about the Pro Compression Marathon socks and they were running a 40% off promo this month so I said what the heck, I'll try them too.  I already have a pair of CEP compression socks that I LOVE but they are pricey and these were only $30 after the promo code.  I got a pair of smalls as I have a size 8 shoe in women's.  They arrived at my house about 4 days after I ordered them and I decided to try them out last evening for a quick 3.5 mile run around the neighborhood in the snow! They were a little big and not as snug as my CEP's but a whole lot easier to put on. I really didn't feel like there was a difference in my legs or my run.  Same pace, same distance, same feeling (still no pain :)). 
I'll have to say though that my CEP's feel like they are offering compression, these may be too big but I followed the sizing chart so I'm thinking that is the type of compression the socks are supposed to offer.  On a positive not, they are SUPER cute in pink!!! My CEP's are white (boring) so it's a nice change and my neighbors think I'm really crazy now with my getups. 
Next up will be a Kona Kase review.  They are sending me a Kase in the mail and are offering my readers a 50% off discount on their Kase if you enter the code "hughes".  I'll let you know what I think as soon as I dig into the Kase.
Happy Running!!!


  1. I will be posting a review/giveaway of PRO Compression in a few days. I got a size S/M as I wear a 7.5 shoe, but because I have large calves, they are quite tight at the tops of my calves, but I like how they fit everywhere else.


  2. Kelly,
    I have very skinny ankles and relatively small calves, maybe that's the problem. Thanks for commenting, I'm still trying to get the hang of blogging.
