Zensah Compression Socks + Giveaway

Disclosure: Zensah provided me with a free pair of their Argyle Compression socks for this review. However, all opinions and observations are my own.

Woot! It’s my Friday!

It’s really been a hectic week for me and instead of getting better at this whole “getting out the door” business – I think I’m getting worse.

Seriously woman. Get your act together.

But those complaints are for another post…. What was I saying?

A few weeks ago, Zensah contacted me about doing a review and giveaway for their Argyle socks

My high school self squeeeeed at this because back in the day – I LOVED argyle. Seriously, I had like 20 pairs of argyle socks. I still might have a small collection…

Unfortunately, the color combination that I originally wanted was out in my size (I have large feet, this is a common theme) so instead of the super cute pink socks…

I got the almost equally as cute blue and green socks.

Resting and recovering from a 4 mile run. Yes, 4 miles requires recovering these days.

So my review…

Well, the socks fit. So that’s a good start. I have compression sleeves from Zensah that are too short, so we’re making progress. As for the compression part — well, they’re not my favorite. However, I was wearing them post run for recovery and I like a thicker more supportive sock to well… compress.

They might be better to run in, but truthfully when it’s 90 degrees outside with 110% humidity – I’m wearing as little as possible – so I haven’t tested them out in those conditions. They ARE more lightweight than Pro Compression (still my go-to socks), which is a plus if you want to run outside and only need light support.

Another difference between the socks I’ve tested is that the sock portion of the Zensah are really thick. This is a feature that I really LIKE, but I like running with thicker socks on, so I think it’s a personal preference.

So my verdict? The socks are really cute, but lower on the “compression” side of things. If you are looking for something fashionable and lightweight to run in – these might worth trying out. If you are looking for a sock to recover in – these might not be your cup of tea. Anyone else have this same experience?

The good news is that, Zensah has offered to give one of you lucky (US Citizen) readers a pair of socks as well. Just leave me a comment telling me what color argyle socks you want and follow Zensah either on Facebook or on Twitter (added extra bonus points that I assume increase your chances if you tweet about the giveaway or follow me on FB/Twitter).

    The black, gray and light pink pair is adorable! Like you, I like my compression gear thick but I’ve never tried actually running in compression gear so this might be the pair with which to try!

    The black, gray and light pink. Feminine without being girly, because I’m not very good at being girly.

    Well since the REAL compression ones kind of freaked me out with their tightness, these would probably be much better for me. Plus, I haven’t even been running at all lately and i have this weird twitchy thing going on with my knee, which doesn’t bode well for tri/half training in a couple weeks. So I’ve been thinking of snagging some running compression socks. So, pick me, pick me! And if I do get picked, I like the pretty white, gray and neon pink ones. Because all pinks should be neon!

    I think I accidentally unsubscribed from your blog. And my own. #Fail But luckily I opened Feedly to see these cute socks. The pink. Give those to me. And honestly, I think Pro Compression is TOO tight for my big ass legs, so I might light these better.
