These target compression perfectly: they're tighter than other comp sox where you want it but not tight at all elsewhere, so your calf doesn't feel like it's been stuffed into a sausage casing. This is important because too much compression everywhere can mess up your gait and head you straight for tendonitis city. The ventilation works: you don't roast in very hot weather. And they wash fine in the sink and dry fast, so you don't need several pair to use them daily. I'm glad I shelled out for them.
Great fit. Feels "light" on your leg and foot as though they were a second skin. Ventilation is ok but not great - my feet still sweat. Somewhat tough to get on if you have rough skin on your feet (don't most guys?). Provides some muscle "spring" but not the same feeling as when you wear the CW-X Compression Tights. At $25 I'd buy more pairs, at $40+ probably not.
Left on a backpacking trip with a mild case of chronic tendonitis So far, eight days down (and up) the trail no tendons problems. Walking for now up to 15 miles a day in mixed terrain. A happy customer.
