These are good quality calf sleeves but they do not have much compression compared to others I have. I will keep them because I can wear them for warmth and very slight compression. I originally bought medium based on measurements but exchanged for the small to get increased compression. Thanks STP for great service.

These are thinner than I expected and don't really compress much. Granted, I have chunky calves, but by the time I put them on they are about the texture of tights or almost even nylons. The length is as expected... and as warmers they will work.

I purchased these hoping for compression similar to the Zensah sleeves that I already owned. These are of course substantially cheaper, but don't really offer the sort of compression I was hoping for to ease my leg pain during my morning runs. They are made of a very thin polyester fabric, which is comfortable and cooler on warm summer mornings, but simply doesn't have a very strong compressing capability. I think they would be more effective used for keeping one's calves a little warmer on cool mornings. My calf measures 12.5 and I purchased a small (the smallest size), which seemed to fit fine. They stay up during my runs, and are easy enough to get on and off.

The product description fails to mention any sizing specs. I measured my skinny calves at 14" and tried the large. They are very long- they stretch from the bottom of my knee cap all the way down to the ankle. The large is not the correct size for me, they are too loose. They fit snug, but are not compression. The material is kind of thin and makes me wonder how well they'll hold up over time.
Overall a fair to OK product. I would only recommend getting this if your can score it at 40-45% off, and if you can get a fair idea of your own sizing.
