Compression leg sleeves
Our compression calf sleeves use our state of the art graduated compression technology to help you to hike farther, run faster, and reduce soreness with every step. Calf sleeves are a great alternative to compression socks if you have your own pair of ankle socks you prefer to wear, or if you like your feet to be free in the warmer months. Compression sleeves have been used by athletes for years to boost circulation and improve recovery. Many runners who get shin splints swear by compression sleeves for recovery.

What makes compression sleeves so great?
Our compression sleeves are made with our custom nylon blend, which increases breathability. Our nylon compression socks and sleeves are loved by athletes for their superior stretch and performance.

A note on compression sleeves: We don't recommend them for more sedentary activities like travel. Since compression sleeves stop at the top of the ankle, they're not as effective at preventing swelling. True graduated compression socks or full tights, on the other hand, are very effective at preventing swelling and are perfect for any occasion - sitting or standing for long periods, workouts or travel. Compression sleeves are great for activity, soreness, and light use, however they will not be as effective medically.
