As someone whose only concession to running gear was buying proper running shoes it’s fair to say I was new to compression wear. I have always suffered with achy feet while running and never imagined that there could be a piece of running gear to resolve that. I was wrong. EC3D’s compression ankle socks focus their compression around the middle of the foot providing support for the arch where I found my foot usually aches the most. The socks stay in place while running so there is no friction and the seamless toes mean there are no blisters at all, result! The compression tights have unique support around the knees and a high waist which provides support to the lower back. The benefits of this were second to none, particularly in terms of the speed of recovery – I felt lighter than air when I took them off after I finished my LSR and felt minimal aches the following day. While I tried and tested a “wear with anything” black pair of tights and socks they are available in a variety of colours and I’ve got my eyes on the bright pink versions too!
