I originally got these for my son who is in the Army and does lots of PT. The size I was offered was a Large and I was hoping that would fit him. These barely fit me so I decided to keep them for myself since I tend to get shin splints and these really help relieve the pain associated with it. I personally prefer the calf sleeves over the socks because I live in Arizona and compression socks are too thick and hot for my preference. I have heard friends say these help with varicose veins as well so there’s another added benefit to wear these.
These calf sleeves are made pretty well but bear in mind they seem to run a bit small. Overall I’m really glad I ended up with these since I needed some too.
