To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought these to add support following an operation resulting in mild lymphoedema. Intended for occasional use in a swimming pool. Although not tried in a pool yet (hence 4 stars) according to the specification and other reviews they can be used for this purpose. They have been worn for a full day and are very supportive and comfortable. If they work in the pool I will be purchasing a black pair as I only bought the pink because they were on offer!
Bought these and had to return as I did not believe the sizing advice - I have to say that is spot on, so take note! Bought again in a larger size - they fit well and are comfortable while running, but am still getting shin splints despite these and new fitted shoes and foam rolling, so not sure how effective they are overall.
Have used 2XU calf guards before and these do not disappoint. Material looks and feels good and fit is perfect for me. Since using 2XU calf guards,incidents of cramping have reduced to zero and I hardy notice my calf fasiculations. Good stuff.
I bought these as I kept getting calf problems when I tried to increase my running mileage. They have been spot on. I haven't had any problems since training and racing with the calf guards. They really make you feel that your calfs are being fully supported. I would highly recommend measuring both your calfs around the widest point - I only measured my right which turned out to be smaller than my left so I was lucky to get away with them fitting. But obviously it's important that they are a good fit for you to benefit from wearing the guards. I would highly recommend 2XU compression calf guards, good quality, highly effective and look pretty good too.
I bought these in desperation after developing shin splints in a critical stage in my training. I read up a lot but remained cautiously optimistic. I’ve just had my 3rd run with these and I can say am running pain free. I was sceptical about the sizing because I have quite big calves, but the measurement guide helped and I love the snug fit. They also stay intact while you run. Bit pricey but worth every penny.
