Some socks just cover your feet. They provide minimal comfort (if you can feel them at all), and they offer absolutely no health benefits whatsoever. They don’t even offer any performance benefits. So why even wear them?
Enter Vigor – Rockay’s new line of compression running socks.
These knee high compression socks for running are not just stylish. They’re functional too. So functional, in fact, that they not only offer you all the benefits of our high performance Rockay Accelerate socks, but also the benefits of our compression calf sleeves for runners.
That means performance cushioning under the heel and toe area.
That means arch support.
That means a reflective logo for your late-night runs.
And most importantly, it means reduced soreness during and after your runs.
How’s that, you ask?
Well, just like our compression calf sleeves, these, too, provide graduated compression of 16 – 23 mmHg. And that means improved blood flow; and that means more oxygen entering your muscles; and that means you can go harder for longer. It also means that you’ll be less sore after your workout or run. And that means your recovery periods will be shorter.
So you can hit the pavement again in no time, seeing gain after gain.
If that’s not enough, our Vigor compression socks for running are, like all of our products, made from 100% recycled materials, made partly from ocean waste.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are these compression socks for shin splints?
While they weren’t designed specifically to guard against shin splints, or even to relieve pain from shin splints, compression gear in general has been shown to do so. Remember, compression gear increases blood flow, which ensures your muscles get more oxygen and nutrients at a much quicker pace. This can help mitigate occurrences of shin splints or help with recovering from them.
Are these sweat resistant?
These are, like all of our products, moisture-wicking. That means, in layman’s terms, that as your feet sweat, the sweat is transferred from the inner layer of the sock to the outer layer, where it evaporates. At the same time, this sweat transference cools the skin on your feet, which leads to less sweating.
What are the benefits of compression gear?
There are plenty: improved blood flow (which means more oxygen and nutrients reach your muscles quickly), fewer muscle vibrations, and lower chance of injury are just a few. For a more detailed look into the benefits of compression clothing, click here.
