Product Description

The Unisex Essentials Compression Calf Tights MX was designed based on specific feedback from sportsmen and women. They are constructed from two fabrics - the main body fabric is a high denier warp knitted fabric, designed to provide a high level of compression and support yet still allowing muscles to function naturally. A lower denier fabric panel at the rear of the tight above the ankle allows for natural extension and contraction of the Achilles tendon, reducing the risk of injury and allowing blood circulation through the feet and back up the legs. Seam placements around the calf muscle provide extra muscle support and lateral stability.

5.0 out of 5 stars compression sox excellent 8 Feb 2014
Colour Name:Black / Yellow| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
These compression calftights are fantastic. I had a pair of the Paula Radcliffe style nike ones before and they were far too tight and used to make my toes goes numb. These are just the job and they don't look like you're wearing your grannies varicose vein socks either. So far I have only worn them about 10 x but very pleased. What i would say be wary of the size as most of the write ups i read suggested they came up small. I am 6ft and weigh 85kgs and i was the very top end of medium measuring round my calves so ordered them medium and they are spot on, definately didn't need any bigger.

I would definitely recommend these compression socks to anyone who has had problems with their calf muscles etc. I now wear them every time I do any kind of sport or running and have had no further problems. They are very supportive and are very comfortable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sore shins - they fixed it, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase
If you're suffering from sore shins I'd recommend these and I'd heavily recommend a foam roller. These two additions fixed my sore shins that I developed after circuits / fast runs and allowed me to train consistently before the London Marathon. Totally worth it.

Excellent product, solved an ongoing calf problem. My husband decided to buy a cheaper version and ended up sending them back and ordering these - you get what you pay for!

5.0 out of 5 stars The. Best. Thing. Ever. 8 July 2014
By Soo Broo VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Black/Charcoal| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
Oh. My. God.

This is the best 25 I have ever spent. EVER.

I think I have tendonitis in my Achilles tendon (that's my diagnosis anyway from my internet research). I get a vast amount of pain at the beginning of a hill walk that takes almost precisely 1.5 miles to disappear. And, yes, I have recorded it. After that nothing, but boy, does it drain my energy. My brother bought some of these as he has a tendency (no pun intended) to cramp and raved about them, so I ordered a pair just before a two week walking holiday in the Lakes. They are revolutionary. They are pretty tight but you don't really notice you're wearing them but do make sure you measure your calf to get the right size. They hold your muscles tightly to avoid excess movement and deliver more blood to your muscles. They are amazing. I still had the pain, but it was bearable and it wore off much more quickly. It makes your legs feel strong and supported and less tired and after a long 11 mile walk with four mountain tops, my legs still felt fresh. We both also had no stiffness or aches the following mornings. In fact, when we walked without them, we felt most peculiar - weak and feeble!

How much is a placebo and how much is actual science I don't know and frankly don't care. They certainly helped me and my brother and we now wear them for cycling too. A fantastic product. Thinking about the full length tights now too....

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm Calf Muscles 1 Jun 2014
By Mr. William Oxley VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Black / Yellow| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
I had a slight injury to the calves and needed to ensure that I stretched them before games, and that they kept warm and flexible during the game.

These are snug and tight fitting when you out them on.

During exercise they stay up the leg whereas your socks sometimes slide down. So the calf tights stay in place and keep doing their job whilst you exercise. Perfect!

I would definitely recommend these for calfs.

Bought these to protect my calves while walking a marathon recently. I had no pains or shin splints. Pleased with purchase, although quite pricey.
