Sugoi R+R compression sock

Run or watch any race these days and you'll notice the growing number of knee highs.
It's not just a fad folks, the benefits of compression during and after running have been garnering a lot of research. Pull up the trousers of your friend the type 2 diabetic and you'll probably discover their sup. hose.
Compression increases blood flow to the extremities and aids in flushing lactic acid, hence the recovery is expedited.
In my own experience the socks are a great help in this area. Forefoot running can bring about tight calf muscles, and these socks really make a difference. I don't run in them, the padded foot bed particularly in the heel and toe isn't to my liking so they are half of the race and recovery for me.
