ZENSAH+SKINS Compression/Fitness Socks-Apparel

We feel sorry for all those athletic or on their feet all day people who don't know about the benefits compression wear socks/leg cuffs. It's easy to say the benefits-improved circulation, recovery musts during and post endurance activities-but once one gets on a pair-chances are high that some version will be part of an everyday wardrobe.

ZENSAH makes colorful compression wear for the knee down---including World Cup ready country flag styles. FUN!

Engineered performance-targeting key areas for graduated compression where needed. The superior support is all made of moisture wicking/anti odor textiles-and no chafe seamless technology. The fit is super-and left/right specific for socks…we have several pair we wear in rotation.
we have a pair of these we wear with recovery sandals.

 Compression wear apparel is supportive and functional…and athlete input is clearly apparent in the new to us SKINS collection…with gradient compression requirements taken into account for muscle groups, and serious sizing choices---in the SKINfit A 200 range that uses a unique BMI sizing algorithm  (novel!) …and the 400fit-that takes into account body shapes based on 3D body scans of hundreds of humans-athletic and regular….resulting in 400 key fitting points. Holy cow!

Smartly made-with warp knit technology using multiple fine quality yarns for added strength, perfectly controlled compression and importantly too-shape retention. PLUS Memory MX fabric in the A400 garments in key areas for movement and consistent compression/ support (Achilles, quads, hamstrings, ITB+TFL areas), and all with SKINmuscle+ constructions that reduces muscle vibration resulting in less tissue damage. Active and recovery collections are available now.

What also really caught out eye balls-the print and colors…def. eye catching-something we see in other fitness brands but not as high performing as this line is. AND of course-temeprature regulating and woven 50+ UV protection-as befits a an Aussie brand-skin cancer capital of the world.
