Product Description

Skins listened to what athletes wanted and developed these unisex Essentials Compression Calf Tights MX 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. These calf tights MX are popular with endurance runners, triathletes and for use in high impact sport where calf muscles are punished during game play. Technology: 400 Fit A super comfortable fit, more precise, targeted Gradient Compression and in some cases, a greater range of leg lengths for men and different body shapes for women 50+ UV Protection Skins was born in Australia, so they know a thing or two about exerting ourselves in the sun. Skins fabrics have a UV protection of 50+, which means you can get out and train harder without worrying about the sun related risks. Engineered Gradient Compression Gradient Compression has been engineered to provide the correct level of surface pressure to enhance circulation and increase oxygen delivery - boosting your power, speed and stamina Moisture Management Keeping you dry through advanced wicking is inherent in all SKINS fabrics - moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay dry and comfortable

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.

OH MY GOD!!! These things are a god send! I had a month off from running before Christmas and stupidly came back with an 8 mile run. End result one injured calf muscle and a lot of pain. Since then I've had nothing but pain every time I run. I'd tried the Kinesology (however you spell it) tape, and supports and still pain. So I thought I would buy these. Now I had no faith in them working. I thought this compression malarkey was just hot air and an excuse for people to waste money on more running stuff. I'm not afraid to admit I was wrong. I've just come back from a run wearing these and ...................no pain!!! Not even a twinge!!! I ran two days ago and I was feeling crippled - tonight I'm feeling like I can run any distance again. So happy. Wish I had bought these sooner. Highly recommend. If you have any twinges get these - seriously they really help. I'm stunned how well they work.

Ok enough gushing!

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 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 for my husband to recover after long runs and he reports that they work perfectly. He has fairly slim legs for his height (5'11") and the medium size fitted him well.

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!

I have suffered from calf strain for years. These were recommended by a GP friend. I am convined they help. Not only have I not suffered any injuries, the calves don't even tighten up any more. They are tailored to support the entire lower leg so are better than simple cmpression bandages.

Well worth a try.
