That was essentially the conversation before I received a pair of the Fit Shit compression socks. I’ll be honest, I’m one of the most skeptical people you’re going to meet. When I see any kind of fitness gadget, gear or special medically infused spiritual copper compression gear… I tend to call bullhockey and ask for empirical evidence to support claims. Compression gear is full of those claims.
The performance socks market is expanding because let’s face it, you might train for years to have the body of Adonis coated in bronze but a quarter-sized bleeding blister on your foot could put you on the DNF list. There are many different options available out there with varying blends of fibers and styles, each touting their own merits, but it comes down to figuring out for yourself which pair of socks works best for you in specific situations.
