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 two pair of these for my wife off an "add-on item" for $4.98 each. She's only worn one other type we bought at a runners store for $30.00 which she really likes. After trying these she was happy on her short run (10-miles) they were comfortable and hand washed well. Worth a shot for the price, time will tell how they hold up.
I noticed that when I was running 30+ miles and staying on my feet the rest of the day while wearing my Injinji tall socks, my calves were still not sore. The Injinji socks are too thick to wear in hot weather, though, so I ordered the thin 2XU sleeves - they are a little tighter and work well for long runs, but I've learned NOT to wear them during track speed work.
Okay, the product is for my son. Based on the measurements provided I opted for XS. In truth I should have gone with small. For myself, being a petite adult female I need the medium. Also I was surprised at how short they are. I thought ankle to knee but this is above ankle to mid calf (just over the curve). Who am I, though. Son loves them.
These are great.. I'm a medical student, and I bought these for my on-call nights, where I have to be on my feet a lot. They decrease calf swelling and I have found that my legs aren't as swollen by using these. I have less calf pain, and my legs are also not as tired. Feel like I have more "spring in my step." Highly recommend! Get a smaller size, though. I got the XXS.
