Anyway... after you all so thoughtfully commented how much you love your socks, I ran over to my local running store (well, not literally) and picked out a pair.
Now.. first of all, I went to my fave local running store to pick them up. And though it's SUPER convenient, with that convenience you lose a little with selection... so, I basically had to choose between CW-X, Swiftwick, and ASICS brands. I asked the dude, who asked another employee and she was like... well.. CW-X is a popular brand. (Ummm.. duh). And then I picked up the Swiftwick ones and looked at them.. and the dude piped up.. Swiftwick is a good company, too (Umm...duh). I know these companies are good! I want to know if their compression socks are good!
So, in the end, I did what any one does when they have no idea which brand is better over another brand... I bought the most expensive (which, frankly, wasn't all that expensive.. only 40 bucks).
Ta Da! CW-X Compression Socks.
I then spent the rest of the afternoon trying to take a picture of me wearing the socks... Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of your legs? On your own?
Yeah, that clearly didn't work...
Okay good enough.
And then I was like... WTF? Why am I trying to take a picture of me wearing compression socks??? Everyone knows what compression socks are and what they look like. OMG, I've turned into one of THOSE bloggers.
Watch yourself, folks.. I'll be posting photos of oatmeal and iced coffee any day now...
By the way... the socks don't really feel all that tight... I assumed they were going to feel like SUPER tight. So, I hope they're good enough... I'll review them next week after I give them a real test.
