The people over at SLS3, a compression & triathlon apparel company, contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewed their compression socks. More socks to help me recover faster? Yes, please!
They sent me a hot pink pair with butterflies on them. I absolutely love the design!
Oh, and Beans is joining me as my assistant for this review 😉 These socks also come in purple & baby blue – all very cute!
I went on a 5 mile run in these the other day and definitely felt a difference. These babies are tight! What I particularly like about these socks is that it actually compresses my foot. My feet tend to get a little swollen and puffy after running the heat, and these helped my feet out a lot.
I also tried these out after my 12 mile long run last week. After that, I wanted everything possible for a quick & painless recovery. I felt amazing while wearing them & even better after a few hours of wear. I would definitely say compression products work, and these ones work great.
The only concern I have about these socks is the sizing. I got a S/M for my 7.5 shoe size and 14 inch (around) calf. I don’t feel like I have particularly big calves, but these are quite snug. If you have a bigger shoe or calf size than that, I don’t think the S/M would fit. So maybe order a size up with these ones!
Overall, these socks are very high quality & will be a new favorite among all my running gear. Be sure to check out all of SLS3’s other products as well. New pair of running shorts, perhaps?

Questions for You:
- Do you prefer gear with designs or in solid colors? The more character, the better in my opinion!
- Compression socks or sleeves? I’ve still never tried sleeves.
