The other day I won a pair of CEP compression sleeves from Sam @ walk a mile in my boots’ fundraiser/giveaway. I picked the size & color I wanted and now I have a brand new pair of compression sleeves…
They also sent me a these CEP bike compression socks to try out!!
If you have been following my life on this blog, you may know that I have only gone on one bike ride (aside from the bike at the gym) this summer…and in fact…in the last 2 years! I know their socks are suppose to target specific areas of the leg, but I wonder how truly sport specific they are?! I might use them for running also!
So, the only other time I have ever had any kind of compression sock on was in February of this year, when I had my first surgery ever. And these weren’t just compression socks. They were from the tips of my toes (the very tips stuck out so the docs could check my circulation) all the way up as high as my little legs could go! Basically they were a FULL LEG COMPRESSION SLEEVE!
These pink beauties are so fun! Often times my calves feel tight when I’m running…and especially when I was logging the LONG miles, my calves would get tired & tight & everything in between. I was dying for some compression socks/sleeves (but I’m cheap, so I just suffered!). I’ve never had shin splints (knock on wood) but I can see why these compression sleeves would do wonders on that kind of injury!!
I don’t have much of a review yet, because a 2 mile run doesn’t seem like it would be long enough to test them on. But I can say that my calves felt nothing but supreme bliss the whole time I was running. I feared my legs would get really hot, and although they got a little sweaty, they actually breath amazingly well!
Gotta say I like ‘em. Now that I’ve tried them, I really wish I would have bought some sooner. They are awesome & so perfect. I can’t wait to get my mileage back up to a decent amount so that I can really test them out! And I’ve read other reviews on compression gear…and people say they make you feel like you are faster. You know, like brand new shoes for kids are somehow super fast. Well, I will agree. These compression sleeves made me feel like I was going a lot faster. SWEET!
So here’s the deal.
Not only did they send me my winning pair of pink compression sleeves & the bike compression socks to try out. They also sent TWO MORE CEP bike compression socks. These are black women’s socks, in sizes II (9.5-12 inches calf circumference)& IV (15.5-17.5 in).
If you want a pair (or for all you boys, maybe you want to win one for your wife, gf, sister, grandma…whoever), leave me a comment telling me which size you want. I will pick two winners, one for size II and one for size IV. **You must be a follower to win [click JOIN THIS SITE under DVF Followers on the sidebar]**
