Do you buy these/have these??

I'm looking into buying some compression sleeves for my legs.  I've found two websites so far.  If you have used these, what brand do you like?  Also, do you prefer the sleeves or the socks?  I'm leaning more towards the sleeves.

I've never worn them or even really know what their purpose is, but I'd wear them just because they look cool =)

Nah...I don't have issues with shin splints anymore so I don't use them.

It's for shin splints and support when running from what I've read :)

I REALLY want some of the sleeves, because of recovery and the varicose veins that I get.  I already have socks I like, so I don't want to spend $50 or so on socks that may or may not work.  At least a sleeve will allow me to wear my own socks.  Are you planning to wear them running?

Yes and probably for recovery.. reading up on when I should wear them other than running.

Pretty much anytime you're on your feet a lot.  I have some compression socks for work (nurse), but they're very different than ones I'd wear running.  I'd prefer sleeves, though!

I have the zensah sleeves. I bought them because I was having some horrible leg pains and this was one of the things suggested. They are awsome. I don't wear them all the time, just when I'm feeling achy or when I have my night time leg cramps. The leg cramps will leave me in pain for days and these help. I have the red ones.
