Disclaimer: Nike provided me with a free pair of pro compression socks in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own – as always.
Today I’m introducing the newest addition to my fitness wardrobe – Nike Pro Compression Socks.
As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I’ve been chosen to review these socks and put them to the true test, for myself.
What are Pro Compression Socks?
Here is what Nike has to say:
“The benefit of wearing compression socks over 26.2 miles, 18 holes or 8 hours at work is the delay of muscular breakdown that comes from spending hours on your feet. PRO Compression works against gravity by helping your vascular system increase blood flow which relieves discomfort and assists in recovery. The minute you put them on, you’ll understand why PRO Compression socks are the World’s Best Athletic Performance Socks.”
I’m not the one to go around wearing socks up to my knees, but these ones I actually like. They come in all sorts of cool colours too! We were offered to choose black or white – so I went with white because it will match most of my workout gear. You really can’t go wrong with white…ever!
But just how good are these $50 socks? I had to put them to a true test in the gym…..once I was able to get them on of course! 😉
They really aren’t kidding with the name “compression”. To be honest, the first day I was going to wear them to the gym, I woke up late and was kinda running behind. Right before I left my house, I grabbed these socks…..and couldn’t get them on fast enough. I literally had 2 minutes to get to the gym and these were not going on. I had to drop them and opt for my regular socks because a client is awaiting.
That night when I got off work was when I finally got them on. I guess I never thought of trying them on before I was actually going to wear them, if I did, it would have maybe helped me out a little, lolz!
I ended up wearing these socks for my leg day workout. I figured it would be the best option, since I don’t run, or do any cardio for that matter so with a leg workout, I can truly test out the “compression”.
In the end, they felt great! I focused on my calves a lot throughout my workout in order to get the best blood flow while wearing these socks and I honestly didn’t feel like they were getting tired at all! Not only are these pretty good for making your legs feel like energizer bunnies, but in a way – they’re pretty stylish. I’ve actually been wearing them now just for the sake of wearing knee socks. I love new gym gear. Now I just need a new hat and I’m good! lolz!!
