Update: Winner has been announced HERE!!
AKA – socks you’ll be happy to receive for Christmas!!
Disclaimer: I was provided a pair of ProCompression marathon socks free of charge, all opinions are my own.
I’m so excited to host my first official giveaway on my blog!
I’d heard a lot about ProCompression socks over the past few months and I’d been wearing different (lesser quality) brands of compression socks since 2011 when I started having issues with my shins.
Before receiving a pair from ProCompression, I actually ordered a pair of calf sleeves and arm sleeves in advance of my marathon. I wore the calf sleeves around my dad’s house the day before and the day of to assist in preparation and recover of my muscles.
Now that I’m running on the treadmill, I definitely gravitate toward compression socks because I find (for whatever reason) the treadmill to be a bit harder on my shins than the road. Maybe it’s just because I’m awful at running on treadmills. Who knows?!
I will say, ProCompression socks are by FAR better than the cheap-o “compression” socks I’d previously been wearing. When my original shipment arrived, I seriously thought they had sent me the wrong socks because they looked so small and my calves are so big. Nope, they were right, it just takes some effort to pull these puppies on.
My new socks are much more fancy than the grey calf sleeves I ordered for myself!
Hello pink argyle! 🙂 (November’s sock of the month).
December’s sock of the month is awesomely perfect for Christmas!
I’m definitely going to be stocking up on these using the 40% off code since I just registered for the Calgary Marathon 50k ultra yesterday. Eeps!

A note about ProCompression: I was originally contacted at the beginning of November for the giveaway/review and a pair of socks was popped in the mail right away. For some reason the socks didn’t make it to me and I followed up a few weeks later. These new socks were put in the mail on November 25 and I received them December 3 – super quick shipping from the US to Canada and great customer service! I always want to share when I notice excellent customer service! 🙂
