Compression socks are more than just an accessory; they are a force that envelops your legs. With each step, you feel how they provide support, stabilize your muscles, and reduce fatigue. They not only offer improved circulation, but also a sense of being faster and stronger. With compression socks, every run becomes a confirmation of your strength and endurance.

Our signature Åsunden Compression Socks are loved by runners on the track, trails, and on the roads. But what are the real benefits of compression socks? 

1. Improved Blood Circulation: Compression socks help to increase blood flow, thereby improving oxygenation to the muscles. This can, in turn, contribute to faster recovery after exercise. 


2. Reduced Muscle Vibration: During running, muscles are subjected to vibrations that can cause fatigue and injury. Compression socks can reduce these vibrations, thus reducing the risk of injuries. 


3. Support for Calf Muscles: The socks provide support to the calf muscles, which can prevent cramps and other muscle-related problems.

4. Reduced Fatigue: Many runners report feeling less tired when wearing compression socks, especially during long-distance races.

5. Prevention of Swelling: After a long run, legs can swell due to fluid accumulation. Compression socks can help reduce this swelling by promoting better blood flow.

6. Reduced Risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): Although the risk is low for most runners, compression socks can reduce the risk of blood clots, especially during long flights after the race.

7. Protection: Compression socks can provide an extra layer of protection against scrapes, dirt, and other minor injuries that can occur during trail running.

8. Temperature Regulation: Compression socks are designed to keep the legs cool under hot conditions and warm under cold conditions, which can be helpful under varying climate conditions.

9. Style: Besides the practical benefits, compression socks can also be a stylish addition to the running attire. They nicely match with, for example, our split shorts.

10. Mental Assurance: Even if it's not a strict physiological benefit, the feeling of support that compression socks provide can give runners a mental boost.

* It should be noted that the effects of compression socks can vary from person to person. Some runners may experience clear benefits, while others may not notice any difference at all. It's always best to experiment and see what works best for you.
