Lily Trotters Compression Socks Review


I saw a pair on someone’s blog and contacted Lily Trotters and they were nice enough to send me a pair to try.

As you know, I am a big fan of compression socks.

Lily Trotters are the world’s first  high performance designer compression sock. Built with a revolutionary micro-nylon weave strong enough for a marathon, thin enough to rock your favorite shoes, and sassy enough to go beautifully anywhere life takes you. Made right here in the USA.

I am been anxiously waiting for it to get warm enough to wear these socks with a skirt.  The winter here has been so LONG.

Well, I finally got to wear them on Monday during my group training run.  It was still too cold for a skirt so I wore them with capris.

how cool that they matched my shoes

It was perfect timing since I had run 11 miles the day before and really needed them.

I think they may have gotten me through the run. Thank you Lily Trotters!!

Lily Trotters are much easier to get on than ProCompression (which I usually wear) but they still give that support that you want when wearing a compression sock.

These socks are also thin enough that you can wear them under pants when you’re not even running (which I have done in the past after a half marathon.)

They are perfect for the fashionista runner who likes to match her running outfits. You will see these on me at a race soon.

Lily Trotters are currently in development so you should sign up for their email newsletter at http://lilytrotters.com so you can get in on the lowest early-bird prices!

Happy Running! Do you wear compression socks?  If so, what is your favorite brand?

  1. How funny, we reviewed compression socks on our blog today too. Those are super cute and I do love how you always match everything up for your races. I only wear compression for recovery, but still like a cute pair. Nice review!

  2. Really cute socks but anyone considering “compression” socks need to be aware that circular knit compression (seamless) socks lose their compression power VERY fast. They may still feel tight but lose their penetrating power to positively impact circulation. I have had runners approach my booth after races complaining of calf cramps and they are wearing CEP or other compression sock brand. Flat knit or warp knit (they have seams) compression products like Althletics8 calf sleeves last for the life of the product and are only $32.50 for the pair! Sorry for the commercial interruption, but knowledge is POWER! Oh, FYI, PRO Compression is anything but pro. Anyone with a few thousand dollars can import cheap “compression” socks and claim all sorts of benefits. My parent company is made in the USA and has been producing medical compression for the medical marketing for over 20 years. Keep running y’all!
