I’ll admit it, I have an unfailing love for my 2XU Compression sleeves. I’ve had them for 2+ years and the fact that I can wear them multiple times in a week, wash them with the rest of my running clothes and never have to worry about ruining or stretching them out to the point-of-no-return, means they are a winner. They work wonders during runs and for recovery afterwards. Those runs where I forget to pack them or simply don’t care to force my leg into the still sweat material, I always notice my legs becoming fatigued earlier than usual.
However, and with all that being said, I’ve seen a lot of fellow bloggers and tweeps discussing their love for ZENZAH and ProCompression socks (not to mention there is a mondo sale on neon ProCompression socks right now and anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE obnoxiously bright running clothes/accessories.)
So my question to all of you:
Why do you prefer socks over sleeves (and vice-versa) and have you found one brand works better than another?
