With a tight calf and first triathlon of the season the next day, Saturday’s run was the perfect opportunity for me to give my new Tiux performance compression socks to test run – literally.
Tiux are a new start-up that design and sell athletic compression socks exclusively online. They cut out all the middle processes which can jack up the prices, thus giving the end user a cheaper bottom line, only $35 per pair.
The fit was great and my calves felt awesome! Tiux use a graduated compression technology which has a higher compression at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the calf. I typically wear compression calf sleeves so was worried about the feet and not having the benefit of my own socks, but the foot of these socks was very comfy and no blisters were had (yeah!). The only real concern is the lack of style and colour. Tiux only offer three colour combinations, with pink (the ones I have) as the most popular option. This Tiux promote as a cost saving perk, sharing that with limited inventory they reduce costs by never overstocking inventory and instead, focus on quality and providing the best value for their customers.
What I also love is their social good. Tiux have partnered with MAG (Mines Advisory Group) and will donate 1% of their revenue to help save lives and protect communities from landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO) and other weapons remaining after conflict.
