Compression socks are designed to help improve circulation, which helps with muscle recovery.
Recently, after trail runs and long hikes, I’ve been slipping on my pair of UnderArmour Recharge Compression Socks, and they definitely make my legs feel great!
Now I know why athletes use compression socks!
Features of the UnderArmour Recharge Compression Socks
- Moisure wicking. They’re made of 93% nylon and 7% spandex, so do a great job of wicking that post-hike sweat off my tootsies!
- Reasonably priced. One pair retails for $19.99, but that is half of what some other brands cost.
These socks are unisex, so they come up to my knees. I just fold the top bit over so that the socks sit just below my knees. They are called Men’s socks at most stores, but like most UnderArmour socks they are unisex. I wear size medium, which fits women’s shoe sizes 7 – 10.5.
Do you year compression socks after hiking or running? I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!
