I broke down and bought these out of fear that I would not be able to complete the marathon I had been training for due to injuries.
I was buying so many compression wraps and the reviews for these were so good that I thought I would give it a shot.
These stabilized my knees and no more shin or ankle pain.
I still had to use a brace for my IT bands sometimes but that was it.
I am a woman but over six foot so I bought the men's. My only complaint is that they did ride down some while running. I'm not sure if I didn't get them small enough or if I couldn't keep the draw string tied tight enough.
And the draw string has frayed to an alarming extent.
But as far as actual functionality, these rock. They saved me and I finished my marathon! And I get to look like batman in them. :D
I 6'1 and 170lbs. Would I be better off getting the men's version of these tights or would the largest women's tights be better?
