Energy Socks Review
Copper Fit is a brand of athletic products – particularly compression wear – which are relatively highly rated. This entry in the Copper Fit brand consists of graduated compression socks which are said to provide support and comfort to feet, arches, and calves.
Traditionally, compression socks were worn by those with medical conditions such as diabetes or plantar fasciitis. In recent years, however, athletes have also started to use compression socks for comfort, recovery, and support.
As to whether compression socks can enhance athletic ability, we defer to a piece by competitor.com, which notes:
One study found that when 21 male runners did two step tests – one with compression socks and one without – they were able to go slightly longer wearing the compressions before exhaustion. There have also been some small increases seen in anaerobic threshold, particularly in cycling, and in jumping performance. The theory is that the tights prevent oscillation of the muscles sideways and promote muscle efficiency.
But, Ali noted that many of the studies that have found increases in performance did not use a placebo or control, making it nearly impossible to tell if the increases were really from the compression or from the athlete’s perception of the compression.
Whether or not compression socks have been scientifically proven to work is of little concern to those who believe in compression wear. Copper Fit has become a proven and trusted brand over the past several years, and most of their products have been met with positive consumer ratings. At a cost of about $20 for two pair of compression socks, I believe Copper Fit Energy Socks are a solid buy.
Based on past Copper Fit offerings, I predict these will be available in stores before the end of 2016 or early 2017 at a cost of about $20. Bed Bath & Beyond and Fry’s are good places to hunt for new As Seen on TV products.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of compression socks available in stores and online. A cursory Amazon search of compression socks yields a dizzying selection.
Two years ago I evaluated an As Seen on TV pair of copper-infused compression socks called Miracle Copper Socks, which offered virtually the same advertised benefits of Copper Fit Energy Socks. That product can still sometimes be found in stores, and had relatively positive consumer ratings.
