Our new weightlifting compression socks feature a padded front panel for added protection and arch and ankle support which helps with muscle stabilization during workouts. Mesh ventilation channels provide breathability.
I bought three pairs of the compression socks right before a crossfit competition and absolutely love them.
They are certainly a "compression" sock. They are very tight & a bit tought to get on. But man, when you get them on, you'll love them. I ordered them according to their sizing and wouldn't change it if I had to do it over again.
They give me confidence because they help keep my calves warm which is especially nice now that Fall/Winter is here. They also have an extra pad at the front of the sock with I wasn't aware of when I bought the sock.
These pads work great and prevent bruising that I used to get during Deadlifts, Missing on box jumps etc. The padding is an awesome feature and gives me that extra bit of comfort that I know I won't hurt myself on missing a high box jump. I haven't had any bruising on my shins since I bought them.
If you buy these socks you won't be disappointed. For me its one less thing to worry about during a WOD. Confidence is what its all about!
These socks have been great for my crossfit training. I was a bit skeptical of their durability right out of the package as they are very thin. However, I have been training super hard for the last ten weeks (5 times a week, twice a day some days) and these socks have held up without a single issue!.
Turns out the thin-ness of the socks is a great feature. They are very comfortable and breath really well. Neither my shoes nor socks stink after my workouts which is also nice.
I purchased 6 pairs originally (set of red, set of black) and liked them so much that I ordered another 6 pairs right before our last crossfit competition.
