Our knee-high running compression socks activate the circulation and muscular metabolism in the calves for better performance and endurance while simultaneously reducing swelling and soreness. Additional zones support and stabilize your feet.

Do Compression Socks Work With Shin Splints?

Shin splints, also known as “Medial tibial stress syndrome,” are a common source of pain for many runners and athletes. It’s characterized by pain and inflammation along the inside front of the lower leg, along the shin bone. There are many theories on what causes shin splints and just as many ideas on how to treat them. Ankle instability seems to play a greater role in developing and treating shin splints. Athletic socks, such as the Run Ultralight Compression Socks, can be worn preventatively and during early stages of shin splints to help stabilize the ankle and increase circulation to reduce inflammation.
