So... I'm going to open with... I LOVE 2XU!
I've tried their leggings (x2!) and their jackets and well everything has been amazing!!!
When I was given the opportunity to try out their compression sleeves and socks... I JUMPED on on it! 2XU is awesome, why wouldn't I want to try them??!??
The Race Vectr Socks are designed to be:
"Engineered for faster performance than ever before, this impressiveRace VECTR Sock is designed with 2XU’s X:LOCK support system powered by 2XU’s Compression technology for a secure, ergonomic fit to the foot and stabilization of the ankle and arch."
The Performance Compression Sleeves are amazing and:
"The 2XU Compression Performance Run Sleeves feature zoned breathability panels for maximum airflow and comfort. Seamless, graduated compression zones for increased blood flow and maximum muscle containment for increased performance and enhanced recovery times."
Together these are unstoppable! The Race Vectr socks are the perfect amount of compression while still maintaining a super thin feel. The compression sleeves are supportive and give a little bit of warmth on chilly mornings.
What I like about compression sleeves over full socks? That little gap between the socks and the sleeves means cooler ankles! I know it's a small thing but when it's hot this can be a key place where the body can cool itself (ankles and wrists!).
These sleeves and socks are awesome and I want more of them! They are supportive in all the best ways and thin and light in all the perfect ways. This means double awesome!
