Compression Socks

Nick started using these a couple of years ago now to aid recovery, movement balance and protect against injury.

The BV SPORT research and development centre, with its many scientific studies, proved that the pressure put on the lower limbs varies depending on the type and thickness of the living biological tissues of which they are composed. These tissues act as a pressure shock absorber (muscles and fat) or are otherwise incompressible (bones and, to a lesser extent, tendons and nerves).

These innovative factors have enabled us to design meshes of variable levels of rigidity (flexible/semi-rigid/rigid), which have been incorporated into the production of our compression ranges (Booster and ProRecup) since 2004.

Selective compression respects athletes’ anatomy and physiology, optimises muscular biomechanics during movement, improves venous return, limits extraneous vibrations and oscillations, decreases the risk of stiffness and DOMS and raises the fatigue threshold.

Incredible feel with this shoe. The upper is nicely constructed and feels somewhat sock-like in it’s comfort.

With solid support and comfort, the Adrenaline GTS 18 almost feels like it’s pushing  me straight ahead on my runs holding my foot firm and straight.

I am sort of an in between size, but technically, measure at a 10.5 for running shoes. A lot of shoes in a 10.5, I feel like I’m swimming in them (while a 10 is always too cramped), but with the Adrenaline GTS 18, in a 10.5, 2E Wide, it’s perfect. Keep that in mind for sizing. It may be that this fits slightly smaller than some shoes in the same size, and open your mind to different widths.

The Adrenaline GTS 18 comes in 4 widths total, narrow, regular, wide, and double wide. For me, the Adrenaline GTS 18 sizing worked out perfectly.
