It’s a tight squeeze (because they’re compression socks, of course!), but worth the effort! Our friends at PRO Compression know compression, and their Marathon Elite Black socks are the cream of the crop! Graduated compression, that’s the key. The socks are designed to be tighter at the toe and gradually less as you move closer to the top allowing the compression to help push the blood up towards the heart thus counteracting gravity’s pulling of the blood down. The result is better circulation that leads to less fatigue and a shorter recovery time. The Marathon Elite is also special because it has targeted calf support and a padded heel and toe – great for running, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and for speeding up your down time after all those activities. A proprietary blend of materials that is moisture wicking rounds out the features of these fantastic socks. PRO Compression’s Marathon Elite socks are just what we TrailblazerGirls need to keep us going!
