Disclosure: Tiux provided me with their product to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Several weeks ago Tiux Compression reached out to me about trying their compression socks. I didn’t even hesitate to say yes! In the past I have only used sleeves so I was excited to be able to try a full sock version. I have been able to wear test them out several times during different types of workouts and runs so I feel like I’m able to give a pretty fair review.
Cushioned Footbed– This is probably one of my favorite features of this sock! There is a little extra padding on the bottom which makes a long run feel like a breeze. Between work, working out, and running I’m on my feet a lot. I ran a 10k last weekend and my feet have never felt so comfy during a long run!
Breathable– I live in Florida and it gets HOT here! I was a bit worried about wearing them at first because the socks are actually pretty thick. While I was wearing them I was even asked by a random stranger if I was hot, but I wasn’t at all. Felt awesome every time I wore them, even in 90 degree heat!
Labeled– One of the times I put them on before a workout, I didn’t like them. They felt weird, I kept trying to readjust them, but they were too tight in some places and I thought maybe I had shrunk them by accident. But that wasn’t the case!! I just had them on the wrong feet!! The socks are labeled for the right and left feet and I didn’t even realize this at first! Once I got it together, I promptly switched them and was back in buisness!
Performance– These socks were perfectly snug and stayed in place throughout all my runs and workouts. No need for periodic adjustments, like I’ve experienced with other compression brands.
Recovery– Several of my workouts over the past few weeks included ladder drills, box jumps, and sprints. All of these things usually make my calves sore the next day. But guess what? No pain! For each workout, I did keep the socks on for at least a few hours afterwards which aided in my recovery, I’m sure.
Colors– These socks in particular match one of my favorite pairs of shoes!! I always feel like I have my life together when my gym outfits actually match, so I did appreciate that. Probably my only criticism for these socks is this: lack of additonal colors. There are only a few color options for these awesome socks. I am someone who loves colors and patterns, so I am hopeful that they will expand their color selection in the future.
Price– The price point of these socks can’t be beat. Only $35 for the pair. Last time I got a pair of compression sleeves from one of their competitors, I spent twice that!! Tiux cuts out the middle man by only selling their product online (with free shipping!)
All in all, these are high quality compression socks at an awesome price. I will definitely be buying another pair!! Head over to their website to learn more about them or to get a pair for yourself!! Special thanks to the Tiux team for letting me try them out!
