If you like many other runners, you have sampled and tried a wide spectrum of different compression sleeves. You can also probably agree that these traditional sleeves lack some of the basic essentials that you need, including high-quality materials, anti-odor technology, moisture-wicking properties, or standard durability. Whatever the case may be, what you need is a compression sleeve that can rise to the occasion when you are running or training.
Enter: Rockay Blaze Leg Compression Sleeve
Our team has studied and researched endlessly to develop the best possible combination of materials for our product. All shin compression sleeves are made from 42% Multifilament polyamide, 32% Polyamide, and 26% Elastane. Working together, consumers will receive the highest level of durability, stability, and compression.
Now, you may be wondering, “What makes the Rockay Blaze the best?” Well, thanks to the Polygene Stay Fresh Technology, runners will never have to experience bad odors again while running. In addition to this, we designed the sleeve with added ventilation so, while you are running, training, or walking around, any potential sweat will be quickly wicked away.
Additionally, did we happen to mention that our product is designed to significantly reduce any fatigue that a runner may feel after a long run or exercise? Thanks to the quality of the compression, our sleeve will keep a runner on their feet training longer, harder, and more frequently. Should you experience any common running injuries, compression has been scientifically proven to help prevent or treat a wealth of different ailments.
At Rockay, we are dedicated to runners. If you don’t know, we are runners too. We understand exactly what runners need. With that, our dedication is simple: quality for a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I’ve gotten the right fit?
This depends, really, on your ability to gauge your comfort levels and ability to accurately measure your calves. Leg compression sleeves that are too tight will be painfully tight and hard to slip on – if you can slip them on at all. If they’re much too loose, then you might as well not call them compression gear; instead of tightly gripping your calves as they’re designed to do, they’ll instead slide off. You know you’ve gotten the right fit if your calf compression sleeve provides just a gentle pressure around your muscle without slipping or hurting you.
Are Rockay leg compression sleeves eco-friendly?
In order to pursue our vision of Rockay as a champion of eco-friendly running apparel, we decided to partner up with AQUAFIL, the manufacturer of ECONYL regenerated nylon yarn. This yarn is created using discarded fishing nets and other waste products drifting in and polluting the ocean. It’s exclusively this yarn – which is no different than virgin yarn – that we use to create our products.
So the short answer: yes, it’s an eco-friendly product. So eco-friendly, in fact, that even the packaging it comes in is made from 100% recycled items.
How do I wash these calf sleeves?
Like any other compression garment – with care. It’s best to hand wash with mild detergent (or no detergent, which is our preference) and then hang it out to dry. Do not machine dry. Doing so may make the sleeve more elastic, thus eliminating any compression benefits.
But the one thing about our products that sets them apart from our competitors is that our products have all been treated with Polygiene Stay Fresh technology. This means that after your runs, you can simply choose to air dry your sleeves – no matter how much you trained that session. Polygiene Stay Fresh technology works to kill odor-causing bacteria; that, coupled with the sleeve’s moisture-wicking properties, means that it stays cleaner and fresher for much longer, negating the need to wash it after every use.
How do moisture-wicking products work?
Unlike material that is designed to absorb sweat, moisture-wicking material actually works to get rid of it altogether. Essentially, in layman’s terms, instead of the sweat being absorbed, it actually sits on the surface of the fabric in droplets. In time, these droplets of sweat run along the weave to the other side of the fabric, where they’re exposed to the outside world, to the air. Then they simply evaporate, leaving you cooler and more comfortable than you would be otherwise.
How do I know if this is real compression?
Most non-medical grade compression products aren’t regulated or confirmed to be compression. The manufacturer can just toss a label on a product and simply call it “compression.” We set out to offer our customers total transparency and so sought to guarantee verification of our claim. That’s why each of our leg compression sleeves is verified by Swisslastic’s compression test – to allay your concerns, we’ve provided a copy of this test for each product in the packaging for your perusal.
Like we said: we want to be 100% transparent.
Why should I opt for a leg compression sleeve anyway? Do I really need one?
You might think leg compression sleeves like ours are just a current fitness fad – you might think that they look nice, sure, but they don’t have much in the way of utility.
But science says otherwise.
To really understand why calf compression sleeves for running like the Rockay Blaze actually have real, demonstrable benefits out on the track or trail or treadmill, you have to first understand how our circulatory system works.
It works like this: your heart keeps blood pumping throughout your body, from the arteries to the muscles; your cells then derive the nutrients and oxygen they need from this flowing blood which carries it to them; and when the blood is depleted of these, it flows into your veins and finally back to your heart. This process repeats over and over again, for as long as you’re alive.
Shin compression sleeves wrap tightly around your calf muscles, which causes them to be forcibly shrunk in size. That equates to a smaller surface area for your blood to traverse and that means your blood flow increases – and that means your cells get more oxygen and nutrients more quickly than they would otherwise. This is true of compression clothing in general.
Will leg compression sleeves really affect my performance?
The more oxygen the cells of your muscles are provided, the better they can function. The better they can function, the higher your level of performance will be.
Will calf compression sleeves affect recovery?
Yes, it will – because just as oxygen and nutrients are being transferred to your cells at a much quicker rate because your blood flow is increased, lactic acid and other waste are also forced through and away from your muscles at a much quicker rate. Lactic acid buildup is what is primarily responsible for muscle soreness after a workout; this soreness in turn determines your recovery time. Because compression gear washes away more of the very cause of soreness, it follows that your recovery time after a strenuous workout would be shorter.
So you’ll be back hitting the ground much faster and in much better shape.
What other benefits are there?
If all of the above is not enough to sway you, opting for leg compression sleeves has yet another demonstrable benefit: it prevents excess movement of the calf muscles. Every time your foot hits the ground, your muscles vibrate, and this vibration precipitates fatigue. As muscle fatigue increases, your performance naturally drops – you start to slow down because you’re too tired.
Leg compression sleeves help keep the muscles firmly in place, reducing muscle fatigue, allowing you to push yourself to go faster for longer.
And that’s the goal, isn’t it?
