SureSport Graduated Calf Compression Sleeves Review


Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Well, if you've been reading my blog, or know me in person, then you know that I love compression. After my calf injury this last year, well I won't workout without them. Yes, I even wear compression sleeves to spin class, on the elliptical... even rowing. For me, they aren't just for running.

Yes, I am that girl that you see at the gym walking around with compression sleeves while doing bicep curls. Granted, I don't put them on just to do upper body work ;) But usually if I'm at the gym lifting weights, I am also doing some type of cardio while I'm there also.

I had honestly never heard of SureSport Graduated Calf Compression Sleeves, but I was more than happy to give them a try.

My first thought?

I loved the design. Since I wear compression sleeves so often, I like having ... well... cute ones :) So I was really pleased with the overall look of this.

And the fit?

They fit great! Some of my sleeves, I have to roll at the bottom because I am so short. As you can see, these fit great.

The feel of the compression? 

The squeeze was just the right amount of pressure. I have tried some sleeves that I felt the compression was just too much (especially for working out). I like to use compression for both exercise and recovery. And if the compression is too intense, I can't use them for my actual workouts. But the compression with the SureSport Calf Compression Sleeves were just what I needed. I could definitely feel the support, but it wasn't too much to cause pain or make anything uncomfortable. 

One thing to note is that the washing instructions are to lay flat to dry. I have a bad habit of tossing everything into the dryer. But I washed these according to the directions, and they retained their shape without stretching or shrinking. 

My overall thoughts? 

I have now added the SureSport Calf Compression Sleeves to my list of favorites! I feel the cost is reasonable, and that they are good quality. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.
