Sizing notes

When choosing a size, calf size should be used as the primary determinant. We list height for those who do not know their calf size. If between two sizes, we recommend sizing down.


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a pro, but I still love them I am by no means a professional athlete, and it would take a plague on all healthy people in the US for me to be considered a serious runner. That being said, after my runs or rides I am a big fan of these compression sleeves. I can't say if they do anything as grandiose as reducing my recovery time or improving my performance, but they definitely feel great. They provide extra support and relief if I've given myself shin splints. It may be entirely mental, but I definitely FEEL better when I use these after working out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Marathon Recovery Product EVER! I have been using Zensah calf sleeves to recover from my long runs and races for several years and could not be happier with them. Wearing them as recovery items after the marathon made recovery a cinch. The next day I was walking around just fine and felt great. Gave my mom a pair (we do marathons together) and she loves them too! I have also used them when traveling long distances both in the car and by plane and they make your legs feel great afterwords. Also, they wash well and have held up great for the past year plus I have been using them regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Distance Buddies! Ran the CO Tough Mudder in June and had not worn these before the race . . . I felt a big difference in leg fatigue and soreness (or lack thereof) wearing these during our ten mile muddy mess! Lots of other folks were cramping up along the trail but no one on our team had any trouble since we were all wearing the leg sleeves. I run decent distances on my training runs and definitely notice soreness during and after my runs, but wearing these for the ten miles made such a difference I didn't even think about leg pain the entire time. Super comfy, no bunching or pinching, completely forgot I was even wearing them. Feel true to size, but even if you order a size too small they stretch a decent amount. Great piece to add to your training collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stumbled Upon This While In Store Looking for compression socks for edema in lower legs. I'm on my feet all day in work boots or sitting in car for hours. Stumbled upon these on the rack while in the local REI store. Thought I would give them a try. Impressed with them. Use the single pair I have 4 days straight before washing (gross, I know... I take them off immediately after work and don't wear them around unless I'm working). They seem to be holding up to the extreme use. Notice some possible stretching but still tight enough to offer compression support. Seems to go back to normal after washing. Definitely getting another pair to alternate. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is on their feet all day or needs for leg edema.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Plane Rides & Post Training I purchased these compression sleeves for use on 20+ hr plane trips. They were comfortable and my calves didn't ache during the trip. Also, I didn't have any swelling. I'm an active woman, in good shape and use these after I work out. They seem to make my calves relax, post training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels so good! Feels so good I hate taking them off. I was not sure if I would like the product but I ended up getting more so I could wear them all the time. They stay where they should with no slippage at all. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Recovery These are the perfect recovery socks. The compression fits just right, not to tight. Best part is you can wear it with your own socks.

When putting on the sleeve, where does the seam go? Down the back of the leg? To one side or the other? A U Tube video would be helpful.

Asked by: Frank
​You can orient the seam wherever you find it to be most comfortable.

I have MS. My doctor has ordered a compression sleve for me and I can't find the right one. I don't suppose you take insurance. So... I need to know my money is being spent wisely... These sound good.... Is there anyone who has MS out there who has used

Asked by: jolyn
Hi there, I spend a lot of time on my feet in my line of work, so I am a fan of any and all modes of leg compression! I would recommend searching for a compression sleeve that indicates the exact level of pressure delivered. These sleeves are not identified by their amount of compression, which, in my experience, means that the compression is probably not sufficient for my personal needs. If I were you, I would search for medical grade compression socks, sleeves, or hose. You will find 8-15mmHg, 20-30mmHg, 30-40mmHg, etc. Ask your doctor what level of compression is best for you. The higher the compression, the more expensive the garment, unfortunately. When you decide on a compression garment, wash according to instructions from the manufacturer. I stupidly ignored those instructions for several months of garment use, and ended up essentially throwing money in the trash as a result. Washing instructions for most compression garments usually include hand washing or gentle cycle in cold water with a light detergent soap (like woollite), do not wring, stretch, or iron, and hang to dry. Take good care of yourself.

My calf falls into 12.5 should I get the xs/s or s/m? 

Asked by: 07chubby
Based on the circumference of your calves, we would recommend the S/M in the Compression Leg Sleeves.

My calf is 18" is that going to be too big for the largest size?

Asked by: JordyJ
The L/XL size fits up to an 18.5" calf, so they are a good size choice for you.

How do you measure yourself to size these?

Asked by: Dallas Runner
Please refer to the size chart on the right hand side of the item page. Calf size for the Compression Leg Sleeves should be measured around the widest part of your calf.
