Favorite thing Friday: TIUX Graduated Compression Socks

My Favorite thing this FRIDAY is:

My NEW Compression socks by TIUX

Chain Lakes

When TIUX Compression socks reached out to me and asked me if I’d like to review them, of course I said yes! I love compression socks and have tried just about all of them. And, they came in my two favorite colors: Pink and Yellow (with lavender feet) — Bonus!

TIUX website reads:

Premium compression socks without the traditional retail markups.

We know compression socks are over-priced and over-marketed.
So we made our own to prove that it doesn’t have to be this way.

So, they made the same quality product and only charge the customer a fraction of what other compression socks are charging.

I can say this with certainty as I’ve tried them: THEY ARE LEGIT. Compression in all the right places, no awful toe seams to mess with your shoes or your feet, great colors and best of all — my legs felt great!  Oh — and did I mention, I took them for a long trail run my first time out?  No blisters, no chafing, just compression sock goodness.

You know what else I loved?  The packaging.  I’m all about the packaging people!

I’ve been asked what I love about compression socks.  It’s how they make my legs feel: which is AWESOME! I like them before, during, and after long runs.  Here is what TIUX says:

Why Wear Graduated Compression Socks?

Graduated compression socks have a higher compression at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the calf. Graduated compression will enhance circulation and increase the level of oxygenated blood to your legs, while pumping deoxygenated blood back to your heart. Stimulating blood flow helps athletes improve performance, reduce muscle fatigue and recover faster.

Benefits of Wearing Compression Socks

Muscle Stabilization

Provides muscle stabilization to decrease the risk of injuries and muscle tears. Minimizing muscle oscillation reduces soreness and fatigue so you can recover faster from a strenuous training session.

Enhanced Proprioception

Improves agility and muscle efficiency with a heightened sense of body awareness. Greater movement efficiency will elevate your performance and reduce injuries.

Increased Arterial Inflow

Improves performance with greater blood flow to the muscles. Delivering oxygenated blood to the legs reduces muscle fatigue and speeds up recovery.

Increased Venous Return

Accelerates the rate of blood flow back to the heart to help alleviate swollen and achy legs. As deoxygenated blood is pushed up the leg, metabolic substances are removed to help muscles recover faster.
