The Science Of Running Compression Equipment - Taking Compression Socks As An Example

In recent years, one of the new fashions in the running world is the rise of various types of compression equipment. Whether it's a sprinter's compression trousers or a marathon runner's compression socks, runners wearing compression gear can be seen in almost all races.
