CEP Compression Socks
CEP Compression Socks are worth your buy. Especially after beating yourself up during a race, these are probably one of the most cost effective things you can do to your legs and calves to recover.
These are green, but they come in all sorts of colors if you’re not so inclined to be decked out in alien. I’m just saying.
In all seriousness, there’s sound science in compression wear for recovery. One of the best things about CEP is that they’re part of Medi-USA, which has its roots in medical compression for treatment of conditions that require the most technical knit fabric, as such, the brand has been around for awhile, and is very reputable in the compression industry.
CEP compression is also novel in the fact that it deliveries graduated compression that differs from the toe to the top of the calf. With levels being measured in mmHg, not every single area of your leg requires the same amount of compression, so CEP addresses this problem by making a knit that serves different parts of the calf with different levels of mmHg.
