Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all doing well!

I am excited to announce that I am testing Extreme Fit compression socks! 
Benefits include some of the below (varies by sock style). I'm currently running more miles than ever, can definitely appreciate the benefits! Assist with blood flow recovery, help prevent cramps, etc!

Benefits & Features: 
  • Circulation support to fight Reduced Injury, Swelling, and Fatigue.
  • Improve venous blood flow. Stimulates blood flow
  • Prevent varicose veins
  • Stimulates oxygen delivery to muscles.
  • Prevents lactic acid production and cramping.
  • Keeps your feet dry and minimizes blisters.
  • Provides for a full range of motion and joint flexibility.
  • Prevents recurrence of thrombosis of lymphedema after surgery.
  • Anti-bacterial properties to promote foot health.
  • Protect your legs from small scratches.
Low Cut: The first pair that I tried were the low cut Ultra V-Stripe compression socks. I typically wear a moisture wicking low cut sock, with the occasional compression sleeve. Starting my trial with a low cut sock for my weekly long run. I felt the snugginess around my fat feet at first, but barely notice them shortly thereafter. The socks may be thinner than my usual socks, felt more space in my shoes, had to tighten them up (already needed to, but they were even more loose now. lol). It's been humid here (to say the least), my feet were able to breath, some dampness to be expected, but were not that bad. My feet felt good throughout my run, and no blisters! 
Compression Sleeve: I did enjoy the compression sleeve, felt good on my shins and my calves. I am currently experiencing shin splints, they provided relief, as well as preventing cramps. One thing worth noting, they are longer than the typical calf sleeve. They went below my ankles to my low ankle socks.
Several styles to choose from!
Themed socks! They also have themed options to choose from. I went with a pair of coffee and a pair of pizza! I live on coffee, and pizza is one my fav carb load meals the night before my long run! Pic below, my feet and legs felt good throughout my morning run! 
Reflective!: Safety feature! They have at least three pairs to choose from that are Run + Reflective!
I typically run in the dark throughout winter. Additional reflective gear is always great! You'll already be wearing socks, right? An added function without additional gear to carry!
Recovery: Since compression socks are also great for recovery, I have been wearing a fresh pair post run. Occasionally during work, and usually towards the end of the day when I'm really in recovery mode. They feel good to lounge around in, and when taking them off for the night, my legs feel refreshed! Other recovery recommendations, they are great for blood flow when traveling! 
Quote from the Travel Channel:
"While the risk of developing blood clots on a flight is low, it goes up as travel time increases. Enter compression socks. Yes, really. ... These stockings help increase circulation and reduce the risk of swelling or worse deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and clotting on a long flight."

Additional disclaimer: I am in no way qualified to provide medical advice. lol.. But I can confirm I did not experience any cramps or blisters during any of my runs while wearing Extreme Fit compression socks. I may be experiencing overall fatigue due to my increased miles and summer conditions, but my legs definitely feel the benefits of Extreme Fit Compression socks, especially for recovery!
