Compression socks have been part of my running (and every day) apparel for quite some time now. I use them during long runs, during recovery, and any time I’m anticipating sitting or standing for a long time, including long flights and car rides. As is true with all gear, it is not all created equally. My first impression of Feetures Elite Graduated Compression Socks socks was very positive! They were easy to put on (with the tightest spot of course being the ankle), and they fit me well all the way to the knee without binding at the top. The socks are designated left and right and are lightly cushioned underneath. There is also some arch support and good fit around the toes and heels.
Next, I took the socks out for a run, and they didn’t disappoint. There was no bunching in the toes, no wrinkles (resulting in no blisters), no slipping down, no chafing. My legs felt great, my feet happy, and the socks even came off rather easily, even when sweaty. (Since they should be washed inside-out, the best way to take off the socks is by turning them inside out!)
Overall, I can definitely recommend these socks! The quality is good, the price is comparable to other such socks, and you can’t beat a lifetime guarantee.
