Okay friends, the word is out – we unveiled our brand new compression leg sleeves for men and women last week, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! Our new line of black, high-quality leg sleeves uses the same advanced Gradient Pressure™ knitting technology found in our socks that works to energize legs by increasing the circulation of freshly oxygenated blood. These amazing leg sleeves will help alleviate achiness, heaviness and soreness as well as aid in post-workout recovery to support and boost your leg health.
We are really excited to be launching this new product for a number of reasons, the first being that we can offer the benefits of compression to more people. How? Well, not everyone wants to flaunt their socks. According to Michelle Huie, the founder of VIM & VIGR, this new collection of leg sleeves is “the ultimate solution for people looking to experience the health benefits of graduated compression and their favorite sandals. These sleeves offer more versatility for our consumers to wear them under their pants undetected with any shoes or during a workout to add muscle stability and recovery.”
On top of all that, less coverage means less heat, which is a great thing in the summer. They are made with our very popular moisture-wick nylon fabric, which allows for flexibility and breathability. Wearing compression leg sleeves in place of your compression socks on the hottest days of the season will allow you to keep your cool and boost your circulation. From athletes to expecting moms to anyone working on their feet, these sleeves will become your favorite summer accessory – they’re foot loose and fancy free!
Another reason that we’re pumped about this fabulous and footless product is because it means that we are no longer just a sock company – we are now a legwear brand, and this is big for us. VIM & VIGR started in September 2013 to bring the benefits of compression to more people who need everyday relief from sluggish, swollen and sore legs. Since then, we have not only helped thousands of men and women energize their legs and find their expression in compression – we are starting to change the public’s perception of “compression stockings” and who they are made for (remember this article?). You should definitely expect to see more variations of our compression legwear, and if you ever have pattern suggestions or color requests, drop us a line. We want to hear from you!
