Zensah Tech+ Compression Socks (Review)

I've owned several different brands of compression socks over the years, but the only company I've ever felt compelled to return to is Zensah. When it comes to compression socks you get what you pay for, and the $45 price tag on these Zensah Tech+ Compression Socks.

There is some evidence to suggest compression wear slows fatigue during long runs (my race reports), and can even improve circulation to speed recovery after. I don't know about all of that, but for me they are an indispensable part of my running wardrobe during the winter months. I despise running in tights or long pants. They restrict leg movement and hold in too much heat, leading to sweating and chaffing. On all but a few of the very coldest days here in Northern Pennsylvania, compression shorts and knee-length compression socks are more than adequate for regulating my body temperature, and for me Zensah Tech+ Compression Socks do the trick, and are an indispensable part of my winter running wardrobe.

The fabric is thicker than many other socks, and as a result more durable. Zensah Tech+ Compression Socks keep their shape longer, and I was able to get three to four winters out of my last pair, where other socks developed run or became too loose after only a few months of use.

While I spend my summers almost entirely on the trails, many of my winter runs do end up being on hard asphalt, so if there is any truth to the claim that compression reduces fatigue, there is that added benefit as well.

Highly recommended.
