3. 2XU Elite X:Lock Compression Sock
Best for: endurance training and recovery
2XU’s genius innovation sets these compression socks in a league all their own. The brand’s ‘X-lock technology’ hugs your foot, wrapping around your heel and crossing underfoot, keeping the tissue snugly in place to prevent blisters and plantar fasciitis—a huge difference-maker for long-distance runners. The compression is graduated, meaning it’s more concentrated, on your calf, shin, and tendons to keep your muscles aligned in their proper place to omit jostling and soreness, as well as prompt more vigorous blood flow through your body so your aching legs get the oxygen they need in the long haul. Cushioning in the heel and forefoot also aim to reduce fatigue and discomfort.
