Sport performance. Jazzy designs. Made in the USA. One look at Crazy Compression socks and sleeves and I was interested. I reached out to the company to ask about reviewing a pair or two, and then eagerly awaited their arrival in the mail. Compression socks and sleeves are one of those things I’ve been meaning to try out for some time now, with several friends who swear by them for endurance sports. The several all-day adventure races I had on tap this summer seemed like a good time to give it a whirl. (Although, in retrospect I wish I would have used compression socks during my earlier years as an ultrarunner too).
I used my Crazy Compression compression socks and sleeves for:
- the 12-hour Buena Vista AXS adventure race
- the 13-hour Teton Ogre adventure Race
- a run up and over the Tetons, climbing up Death Canyon, crossing the Death Canyon Shelf and coming out the Devil’s Stairs in Teton Canyon.
- the 12-hour Casper Strong adventure race
There’s not much to dislike about Crazy Compression, but here are a couple suggestions for improvement...
- The seam on one of my socks is starting to fray apart, so that’s an area that could use some reinforcement.
- I’d love to see an option for a longer arm sleeve that goes from my shoulder to wrist. The sleeves currently available are designed to be worn on either your forearm or calf, and therefore only cover the elbow to wrist.
