Review @TeamTiux Compression Socks; not just selling socks but doing social good as well!

Advertisements

Have you heard of the compression sock company Tiux?  Well don’t be worried if you haven’t because I didn’t either up until a few weeks ago!  That’s when Heather Gardner from Run Soul Cycle held a give away on her Instagram profile to win a pair!

TBH I had only entered the contest to support Heather, totally not even thinking I would win!  But low and behold  a few weeks later I was notified that I was the winner of a pair of their socks!

I immediately went to their website to see what they were all about and what colors they had.  Except when I got there I didn’t immediately go to the shop section of the website. Right away I was drawn to the Tiux 1% Social Mission section.  I am a big fan of companies doing social good and love supporting the ones that do!  So when I read that Tiux:

will donate 1% of our revenue to help save lives and protect communities from landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO) and other weapons remaining after conflict

by partnering with MAG (Mines Advisory Group), I was even more happy that I had won these socks!  Mind you since my socks prob came from their marketing budget I don’t think the 1% came from my socks; I am hoping that by writing this some of you will check out their socks and buy a pair 🙂

Now onto the socks!  After a quick look at their “Why Graduated Compression Socks” you can see that they provide:

  1. Muscle Stabilization
  2. Enhanced Proprioception
  3. Increase Arterial Inflow
  4. Increase venous return

After reading this I don’t know why I didn’t try compression socks before.  Seemed like a no-brainer to me!  The Tiux business model is a little different that some other fitness apparel companies that you may be used to.  Everything they do is centered around keeping the cost to the consumer at a minimum.  They offer 3 colors Black/Neon Yellow/Dark Grey, Neon Yellow/Blue/Black, and Pink/Neon Yellow/Lavender.  They sell directly to you online (you wont see them in any stores) and  they cut out the wholesalers and distributors.  The best part is they don’t charge you shipping!  So what do you call that? A win-win-win? lol

As for my experience, I’m not gonna lie, I was was checking the mailbox like everyday to see if they’d shown up! lol  Then the sexy black box finally showed up!  Not gonna lie I was super excited to finally give these things a whirl.  I tried them first while doing 10k on our local high school track then a few days later on a 15k long run.  At first I thought that since they were such a slippery material that I would be sliding out of my shoe.  I did have to tighten my shoes a little more than usual since they are a little less bulky than my reg socks but not once did I never slipped out of my heal.  Once I had them on they immediately felt like a second skin to me and my lower legs felt more stable and secure.  I am very lucky in that I have never had issues with my arch, tendons, or my calf’s but I would imagine that these would work extremely well for that with their added stability.  Running with them on my long run felt extremely well.  My legs felt lighter and it was like I couldn’t really feel them at all but not in a bad way, like they were going numb or something, just like they weren’t there.  I usually don’t have any issues with recovery I guess because my long runs really haven’t gotten that long yet but I’m really confident in the science behind these that It will aid me in that department.

I am really looking forward to future runs in these socks and I anticipate buying another pair in the future!

Do you own a pair or compression socks? What do you think?

Until then run happy and #KeepSmilin 🙂

I did it for the kids, for the younger siblings and for the fans. But they still gifted me the jersey anyways! My heart goes out to this team! I haven’t felt more connected to a team than this year!! Thank you for giving me the chance to make these memories and for the opportunity to create these memories for your amazing kids! I heard from someone during the season that the days I wasn’t able to make it to a game to suit up the kids would say “awww man there’s no Forecheck today??? Now we’re gonna lose!!!” That stuck with me and I felt awful every time I couldn’t be there. Made putting in the suit worth it! Based on their record this year the def didn’t need me there to win game that’s for sure!! Already dreaming of next season! 💙💙💙 #hockeydad #hockeymascot #hockey #IDidItForTheKids #minoratomhockey #2009Falcons
