I’ve had problems with my knees for years, going all the way back to high school when I “tore” my meniscus.
I’ve tried brace after brace and sleeve after sleeve trying to figure out something to take the pain away so I could run. Nothing helped. So I used to run without anything on my knees and then ice after and wear a brace around for a few days until the soreness went away.
Then a friend told me about these.
I spent some time going back and forth on if I actually wanted to go ahead and spend the money to try something new…again. After looking at the return policy, I decided to take the leap and promised myself to return them if they didn’t work the way I expected and needed them to.
I was like a little kid when my mother-in-law told me the package had come in. I jumped up and down all the way to the living room where the scissors were. I read through every word on the bubble package and couldn’t contain my excitement as I pulled each of them out and the ice packs that came with.
My bunny, Dora, was even excited about the new gear. The second they came out of the box she had to explore them.
My first run with them I experienced a little bit of slipping, but nowhere near as much as I was used to.
On my second run, I pulled them up a little higher and the left one only slipped a little at the beginning.
If you’re like me and hate having to stop and pull up a knee brace or want something you can throw on and forget it’s there, I would highly recommend these sleeves.
The very first time I put them on I could feel the difference when I ran. My knees didn’t wobble when I slowed to a jog and
after I took the sleeves off, my knees didn’t ache like they used to after a run.
If you’re into the whole compression craze, give these a try. At the very least, your knees will feel a little bit better when you’re hitting the trail or pavement.
