Graduated compression socks manufacturer PRO Compression responds to a blogger’s recent thoughts and concerns on compression socks.

On February 25, 2013 PRO Compression responds to blogger Patti Tucker’s concerns regarding how compression socks, while effective, cause her to feel hot when she runs.

“Maybe it’s because they’re black, maybe it’s because I have a low tolerance for heat, maybe it’s because I’m just a whiny baby. But, I gotta ask those of you who wear compression socks: Do they make you hot?” asked a blogger in her recent post published by

The blogger, Patti Tucker, goes on to state that while compression socks are beneficial to her when she runs, her only complaint is that they cause her to feel overheated. “As I ran, I noticed how great my legs felt, while the rest of me was all, ‘STOP YOU CRAZY WOMAN!’” Tucker explains in her post.

Despite her troubles with the heat, Tucker affirms the value of compression socks. She states, “As a stubborn runner, when you set out to run x-amount of miles, you want to finish those miles. Now I have a tool that helps me get there when I’m not feeling particularly invigorated.”

Eric Smith, CEO of PRO Compression, responds to the blog post by confirming the benefits of compression socks for runners. “There is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Tucker feels the difference in her running performance after using graduated compression socks.”

Smith adds that there are various ways to keep cool while running without having to sacrifice the use of compression socks. Staying hydrated, pacing yourself and running a route that isn’t overly intense are some of his recommendations to avoid overheating while running.
