CEP Compression Socks Review

TriBomb reviewed CEP Compression Socks, and gave them their highest rating of 5 stars!  I know we love the CEP Compression Socks here at  

In comparing CEP Compression Socks to other brands of compression socks, TriBomb felt that the CEP socks were unmatched in comfort.  TriBomb was also impressed with the level of compression in the CEP socks, and that the compression was in all of the right places.  

When purchasing compression socks, it is important to look at the mmHg measurement, which is a measure of compression force.  Socks with a higher mmHG have greater compression.  This measurement is important, depending on your activity or whether you plan to use the socks for recovery only.  As with anything, having compression in the right places is extremely important.  Too much compression for a lower level of activity won’t be comfortable, and too little compression for high levels of activity won’t give you the desired effect.   CEP socks have a graduated compression, so they have greater compression in the ankle compared to the calf.  Compression socks are designed to increase circulation and bring more oxygen to the muscles resulting in better performance and quicker recovery times.

The Scoop on Compression Socks

Yes, they work, and they are not just for runners and triathletes.  What else do you want to know?  I know of waitresses that swear by them.  Anyone who is on their feet for extended periods of time will enjoy the benefits of compression socks.  If you travel and are stuck in a car for a long duration, or if you are on a long flight you will also see the benefits.  

It’s simple:  Compression Socks do what they are supposed to do.  They compress the muscles of the lower leg and improve circulation.  Most importantly, they soothe your lower legs from uncomfortable pain and cramping.  

I enjoyed this article from Gear Review.  Although he doesn’t review the SLS Compression Sox, he does a short review on four other popular brands:  Zensah, Injini, CEP and CW-X, and gives each brand a score of 1 to 5.  In his opinion, CEP is the only brand that earned a rating of 5 out of 5.
