Wore them on flights from Belfast to Punta Arenas,Chile.Lightweight and comfortable with good support.
Got these after giving myself a bad shin splint through over-training. Right from the get-go they felt good, and the healing was great. This is especially as I'm on my feet all day at work on a concrete flor, which would have been hell without them. I actually wear them all the time now, especially when running long distances, a bit like my compression shorts which helped the hamstrings. At my age I'll take whatever I can get. I can't see a down-side to wearing these all the time, both for training and racing. They're just a little bit of comfort you might forget, and after my shin splint, I'll take that any time. A BIG YESS recommendation from me, and yeas, I've got three more pairs now.
Did the job of healping heal my shin splints.
Errr, none I can think of.
