I was so excited to find a pair of calf sleeves that work well, but are more cost-effective than some of the other brands out there. I truly believe that you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg (pun intended!) to take advantage of the benefits of compression. The Active Life compression calf sleeves are great not only for runners, but for anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet. There are many benefits to using compression–it can be helpful in preventing shin splints in new runners and reducing swelling on long runs. Compression is also great for recovery. After a long run, throw on a pair of compression sleeves or socks and take a nap! 🙂 I have wear-tested the Active Life compression calf sleeves and find them to be comparable to the other major players in the market. What I think sets them apart is the more affordable price point (right now they are $17.97 on Amazon!) and their 100% satisfaction guarantee–you don’t see that much anymore! If you ever want a refund or replacement, Active Life will grant you one–with no expiration date. If you have been considering taking the plunge and trying out compression, I think these would be a great option. They currently come in black in sizes M-L and L-XL. I used the M-L and found the fit to be perfect. They were just the right pressure for me–tight, but not too tight. To make sure you get the right size, you can refer to the chart below: I like to wear my calf sleeves for middle distance runs and recovery (compression socks on long runs and cold days).
