Product Review: Extreme Fit Compression Socks

Disclaimer: I received a selection of Extreme Fit compression socks to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!

I’m going to come right out and say from the start that I liked these socks. They performed for me the way I expected them to perform. I know that may seem like something that should be obvious with a product like this, but it isn’t a guarantee, ever. Let me begin my saying I thought the level of compression in their running-orientated socks was on the mark. The sock never felt too tight and hugged against my legs and feet the way I wanted it to do. They are also a very soft sock in the feel and it’s as if you don’t even have anything on your feet. Now, Extreme Fit does offer two levels of compression in their socks. They have socks with 15-20 mmHg compression and socks with 20-30 mmHg. Now, what those numbers represent is how much compression the sock will provide for your legs and feet; a tightness level, if you will. So, for runners you would go higher and if you were wearing the sock for traveling or standing at your job all day, the lower number would work for you.

As someone who runs both long and short distances, I found their runner socks to be topnotch and on par, if not better than some other brands out there. Another great option in the runner’s line of socks were ones that had extra amounts of reflective marks on them. Perfect if you are the early riser runner or the dusk runner where it may not be as easy to spot you. And I’m talking some seriously good reflective material.

I’m also a big fan of how many styles Extreme Fit offers on their website. And how they package some of their socks into solo options, 3-packs and even 6-packs! So many options with colors and designs; they even offer some socks with copper-infused fibers inside of them. You would be hard pressed to NOT find a style or color of sock on their site.

And who says that their socks are only for running or walking? Do you work in a hospital? Hair salon? Travel frequently on airplanes or train for work? Do you need compression socks for grocery shopping? Daily chores? Extreme Fit can benefit you with their product. I’ve used them myself when riding my bike, and I’m just relearning how to do that after over 30 years of not riding one.

LEGEND Compression Calf Sleeves

Now that I am a LEGEND Compression Ambassador, I had the chance to test out a pair of their compression leg sleeves. I already own a few pairs of the socks but was really curious about the difference in feel that their sleeves would have on my feet and calves. I wanted to get a good feel for them so I did multiple tests outdoor and even one indoors on a treadmill. First thing to out in the open is that I enjoyed them very much.

One of the reasons I love their socks is because of how they react when you are running or being active. They provide necessary stability but never become too tight or constrictive during a run. It’s a subtle but very comfortable increase in the compression that you feel. They helped me reduce some of the fatigue that I’ve been suffering from lately and the general soreness that occurs during long runs, those that are ten miles or more.

I also wore these in a couple different sets of weather. One day was chilly with wind and I was perfectly warm while running in them. But I found their performance much better on another day that was a little warmer and also more humid. The moisture wicking capability these sleeves have is very impressive. No sweaty calves after taking them off. Actually, they were unusually dry compared to my exposed ankle area. At the touch the LEGEND compression leg sleeve would have you thinking you may be too warm in them but I will tell you that would be an incorrect assumption.

My personal favorite benefit of these leg sleeves: another win in the department of preventing shin splints. Oh my goodness, do I ever suffer from these if not properly geared up. And these sleeves are now a must have for me on runs! Soft feel, great compression and no shin splints after running. For those of you who suffer from these, you know what I am talking about when it comes to appreciating any gear that will eliminate this from your life. No shin splints means better performance on your runs. What a great combo! Seriously though, your run is better and it lasts longer (you’re less likely to want to cut it short or skip on time if you are physically comfortable and pain-free).

My simple suggestion and wrap up is to say the LEGEND compression leg sleeves are a worthwhile product and worth you money should you give them chance to improve your athletic training. And, yes, I know you may be skeptical since I said I was a LEGEND ambassador but I truly believe in the product. You will too. I’ve had other brands socks, these perform better in the long run.

Any questions or comments, fire away at me!!

Happy Running!
