SPORTS SOCKS REVIEWED
Whether in a race or on a training spin around the lake – cep compression socks are conquering the world. More and more athletes notice the positive effects of the comfortable medi compression on performance, endurance and recovery.
You hardly see athletes without those high-tech socks anymore. Therefore, our ROSE employees have taken the stylish cep socks through their paces to see whether compression socks deliver what they promise.
Our testers: The diehard cep fan Werner who has already trusted the quality brand for many years now, and Kathrin, our cep greenhorn who was rather sceptical about the effect of compression socks at the beginning.
Read below what the two have to say.
“I HAVE ALREADY BEEN WEARING CEP SOCKS FOR MANY YEARS” – WERNER’S EXPERIENCES
“I have already been a convinced cep fan for many years now. And this is not without reason! The socks reduce muscle vibrations during sport. That’s why my legs don’t feel that tired after running.
In summer, they additionally offer excellent protection from UV rays. My tip: Make your socks wet before training to enjoy a pleasant cooling effect.
I also like to wear the socks in autumn and winter though. Worn underneath a pair of long tights or in combination with cycling shorts in autumn, they keep you comfortably warm.
Yet, I don’t just use the socks for sports. On long working days, trade fairs or air travel, too, cep socks are comfortable to wear and protect your legs from fatigue.
After intensive workouts, I use the cep Recovery socks. They help my legs recover faster. That’s why I even wear them while sleeping.”
“I WAS INITIALLY SCEPTICAL...” – CEP GREENHORN KATHRIN ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES
“When cep presented us their new 3.0 Run socks, I had to admit I didn’t know a thing about compression socks. ‘Compression socks? Not for me!’ was my first reaction. Yet, I sceptically accepted the offer to simply test the socks for a while.
On the next training session, I wore the socks for the very first time. I was already surprised by their fit when putting them on. The socks fit perfectly and provide gentle support without constricting. During training I felt as if my legs had more stamina. Whether it was because of the socks? Possibly! After a few test rides I can say: Definitely! The socks not just provide support during training, but also speed up recovery afterwards.
So even though I was very sceptical at first, I’ve become a compression sock supporter at the age of 29. Whether for training or recovery: The socks have become an essential part of my training routine.”
