Tiux Compression Socks Review & IG Giveaway!!!!

Hey there runner peeps!

I was recently contacted by tiux to write a review of their compression socks! How exciting is that?!

As you know I take my compression sock wearing quite seriously as a distance runner. I love them for 1/2 and full marathons, long runs and definitely for recovery. When I was asked to do the review I was a bit nervous because I had not used their products before. So I did a little research on the company and found out some super awesome facts! Check it out:

  • They are a new startup online company that is based out of Vancouver - so cool that they're Canadian! I was already impressed. :)
  • Very affordable! Try $35!!! Even discounted compression products from other companies don't compare by the time you include shipping and dollar exchange rates. Here's how they can pull off such a cost efficient price: 
    By streamlining their product and cutting out the middlemen they sell directly to the consumer offering a more reasonable price...$35!!!
  • Not only are they super affordable, but they also have FREE SHIPPING to orders in the US and Canada with no minimum order required! 
  • They've also partnered with MAG (Mines Advisory Group) so that "1% of the revenue gets donated  towards providing a safe and secure future for men, women and children affected by violence and conflict." source
  • Funky flashy colours! 
  • High performance material! "We work with the same factories that produce for leading sports apparel brands. We learn from their expertise to create the best product." source

I was super psyched when they arrived in the mail this week. :) And hello, look how sleek and classy the packaging is!

One thing I immediately noticed was the right/left foot designation. Already a bonus! I enjoy compression socks that have the specific foot labelled and I feel like they fit better.

Clearly I loved the colour right from the get go. And I have to say that the material was very smooth to the touch and I really liked how comfortable they felt on my feet. They are not made of harsh material as some compression socks are and actually felt quite satiny around my toes. :) I couldn't wait to take these babies out for a run!

Oh, and check out the super neat message on the inside!
run. jump. go.
I'm always cautious of getting blisters from new socks since this has happened to me before. These socks did not make my feet feel 'hot' or 'burning' and also did not cause any frictional rubbing or blisters. When I had them on I even noticed a bit of extra 'padding' if you will at the back as an Achilles support-a win win in my books!

I probably put more thought into matching the socks to my running outfit than was necessary I'm sure, lol.

I am very pleased and impressed with the tiux compression socks! They felt great on the run (I ran 9 super humid miles in them), they washed well in the laundry and I loved them post-long run! One thing I really loved was how much easier they were to get on than some of the other compression socks I own. I didn't have to wrestle with them at all!  And now I think I need the yellow ones too. ;)
