CEP Compression Run Socks 2.0 Review & Giveaway

CEP Compression (HERE) sent me a pair of their fabulous Run Socks 2.0 to review.  I have loved wearing CEP products in the past and I love wearing compression socks.  I have a particular pink pair that have been used for long training runs and races and make me feel great.  They've also washed up really well year after training year.  I especially love wearing compression socks this time of year - when the weather is a little cooler.  I love pairing them with a cute running skirt.  I wear them on all of my longer runs and also enjoy the benefits of wearing them after long runs or races.  My legs, feet and ankles always thank me later.


Since I have so many other brightly colored compression socks in my wardrobe, I opted for the black/grey Run Socks 2.0 from CEP.  I wear a womens size 10 running shoe and was sent a size IV (large).  Womens sizes are offered in three sizes.  

I love how you can select men or womens sizes online.  And I really think it's great that the socks define your left sock from your right sock by L and R on each.  It really helps provide additional comfort in all of the right places.  It also prevents bunching in your running shoe.  I know a few of us have suffered from that.

I chose the neutral black pair, but they are also offered in red, pink, blue, and white.


Quality characteristics of the Run Socks 2.0 include:
Filament fiber for extreme durability
Wide top band for a perfect fit

Extra-flat toe seam
Prevents pressure points
Anatomical designs

These socks seem heavier than your average low-cut sock, but they aren't too heavy or bulky.  They also breath really well.  However, I would not sport the black pair on my humid, hot runs during the summer.  The air channels allow the foot to ventilate inside your shoe and the sock wicks moisture away from your body.  I love how the structure of the sock seemed to help support my arch during my runs.




I love how my legs felt fresh each time I wore these.  I really feel they give me more energy for a longer distance event and keep my legs from getting tired, as they improve blood circulation.  Some of my clients have reported a drastic reduction in shin pain when they've worn compression socks as well.  The socks help activate the flow of blood to your muscles.
  • Increased coordination by activating the muscles for a sense of stability and se

  15. My fabulous thing about the socks is that they offer a flat toe seam- that is great because I've had socks before that did not and gave me blisters.
