Sometimes life is funny. But not in like a “I tripped and chipped a tooth” kind of way. Funny in a “life IS rainbows and butterflies” way.
You all know that I was having very cranky shins and calves lately so I opted to purchase some compressions socks and sleeves. I got the socks on my way home from a terrible run a couple of weeks ago and they made a HUGE difference. I don’t care if it’s placebo or not, they made my angry shins and calves so much happier. After the run I knew I’d be wearing the crap out of those socks so I figured I’d order some calf sleeves because I’m running a lot in the summer and I may want to take them off mid-run if I get hot.
I wound up ordering a pair from a brand called SLS3. While I loved all the bright colors, I figured ordering a safe-matches-everything black pair was the way to go.
As super-awesome-yay-email luck would have it, I got an email from SLS3 the next week asking me if I’d like to do a review and giveaway*. To which I answered, “Does a fat baby poop?”
I told them I had ordered a pair but they were swell enough to send me another pair to review. And this time I chose the butterfly print that I had been eyeballing from the jump.
Could only better if they were unicorns.
I busted my new calf sleeves out on my long run on Sunday and they felt super supportive and compression-y. Plus, again, butterflies. They were comfortable enough for the entire 2 hour run and my shins and calves weren’t nearly as sore after as they were on previous long runs. I wore them again last night for my treadmill “hills” workout. (And had to awkwardly ask another gym patron to take my photo.)
And not to skip the details of theses bad boys, they feature:
• 20-30 mmHG of graduated compression
• Seamless TekWeb technology• Muscle Stability• Increased Bloodflow
• Cooling effect and UV protection
