The Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves offer a gradient design that increases circulation and oxygen through your blood. The more oxygen the muscles receive the faster they recover, enabling athletes perform at higher levels. A wider ribbing in the front helps protect and support the shins, while a tighter ribber in the back gives stability for calves. Great for running, hiking, basketball, or golfing, the sleeves are designed to be worn during training or recovery and made to be incredibly comfortable. They employ a seamless and ergonomic fit along with a "Second skin" support for ease of movement with every step.
