I was happy to be asked to review Run Forever Sports Compression Sleeves. I own three different pairs of compression socks from other brands, but no sleeves. I had been thinking about trying sleeves because I really wanted to wear my favorite running socks that have good padding and arch support in them, but then I was missing out on the compression part in my legs that seems to helpful in providing support on longer runs.
I got these in a medium. I am fit in the measurements for the calf compression sleeves. They are quite snug, as they should be, but be sure you actually measure your calves so that you get the right size. I really like switching to using these sleeves from using compression socks for running because then I can use other socks that I like better for my feet for running but still have the benefits from compression. I also really like the black color. I tend to run in capri leggings that are black and my other compression socks with all their fun designs may be cute, but they make me look like I am a jockey. LOL! So, I only wear those when I am running in shorts or have long leggings. These I can wear with anything. Everything goes with black.
