Decent but not great
14 September 2018
I bought these socks primarily to use for running. Sometimes my shins have a bit of pain and I've found compression sleeves have worked well to keep shin splints at bay. Combining compression sleeves with separate socks is a bit of a fiddle though, so I decided to give these a try. Have had these 2 and a 1/2 months, enough time to provide a measured, honest review:
I'm a size 8 shoe so I ordered the UK 7-10 size. First impression was that the socks are too long in the leg. Gave them a go anyway. After numerous washes they're still too long. The extra length isn't too much of an issue and if you pull them up carefully the fit just about works. My main issue is that the compression isn't great compared to other compression sleeves I use. If you're a shin splint sufferer I'd suggest you try something different to these. Shin splints are mentioned in their text as is "Laboratory tests", but from my experience they just don't do enough.
Other note is that the seller really badgers you for a review for a few weeks after you buy - maybe why there are so many reviews on here. This is quite annoying and you can't write a decent review on something you've literally just bought!
