Tiux Performance Compression Socks Review and Giveaway

When I first learned about Tiux Compression Socks I was very excited to give them a try.  You all know I do love compression gear and have been looking for a pair of socks that will not only fill my athletic needs, but also my day to day needs, and not cost an arm and a leg.  I want socks that are warm and comfortable,  that will stand up to day to day wear and lots of washing, and that are easy to pull on and off.

 I have found them! 

I was really happy when I received a pair of Tiux compression socks to try out and review… happier still now that they have offered to give a pair to one of my readers as well. I always love to share good things with my friends.

The first test I put these Tiux socks through was an all-day shopping trip. I pulled them on at 9 a.m. and walked most of the day on concrete and concrete-covered tile floors. I didn’t take remove the socks until about 10 p.m. that evening and that is when I first noticed I was wearing them on the wrong feet!    Hahaha…

I don’t think I have ever had socks that were marked L and R before and I was quite amused… but honestly, when I did wear them on the correct feet the next time out… they did fit better!

I wore them to work under a pair of black dress pants… and again, I had them on for about 12 hours straight.  For a girl who loves to be in bare feet, it is a real compliment to the socks that I don’t want to rip them off as soon as I walk in the door from my outing.

And yes, I have worn them to run in, and also to workout in, and for long walks, too.  Actually, they have pretty much become my go-to socks because they are so cozy and soft.  Usually after a run or a day of walking, my legs feel heavy and tired, are swollen, and I often have muscle cramps during the night…  but not since I have been wearing these Tiux socks every day.

The toes have no annoying seams… they are thicker underfoot, and they are just the right amount of snug for support in the ankles, calves and shins.  They are not so tight that I have to fight with them getting them on or off, and they are not so long that I have too much fabric to deal with after I have pulled them up.  I have a fairly long leg-line and they fit very well.

So how does Tiux keep the cost down?  Well, they are an online only company.  They deal directly with the consumer.

That’s right!  Only $35 USD per pair and they currently have 3 fun color combinations, too.  The free shipping applies to Canadian and U.S. orders and with no minimum amount.  Awesome.
