CEP Compression Sock Review....and giveaway!
If you aren't familiar, compression socks and sleeves are used to help with muscle recovery either during or after exercise. The compression increases circulation, which flushes out lactic acid, thus helping to improve your performance. They also support muscles that have been injured, like shin splints or dreaded plantar fasciitis (which I've dealt with on and off for years now), by reducing the muscle vibration in the tissue. You can read more about the advantages on CEP's website, http://www.cepcompression.com/.
I put the running socks on as soon as I got them out of the box to see how they would feel, I noticed right off how smooth they are, the stitch at the top didn't bug my toes at all. After a few minutes my legs started to feel lighter, the socks were tight to put on, but they felt good.
