Lunatik Athletiks' ZUZA Compression Socks & A Giveaway!

Let me start out by saying - this is going to be an emphatic, glowing review. I'm so excited to share ZUZA Compression Socks from Lunatik Athletiks with you all, because they are fantastic! I am in love.

ZUZA Performance Compression Socks
If you're a reader of my blog, you know that I am not typically a huge sock fan - compression or otherwise; however, I have been getting more into compression gear as I have gotten more serious about my marathon training. So when I stumbled upon Lunatik Athletiks' ZUZA socks somewhere in the depths of Twitter - I thought OH. MY. GOD - I've gotta have some. I must admit, the initial attraction was purely superficial - because look at them: AWESOME. RAD. SUPER COOL. (If you're the kind of person that doesn't want to attract attention to yourself, these might not be for you. Seriously.)
 
Lunatik Athletiks very kindly sent me a pair to review. Imagine my excitement when these showed up in my mailbox! I immediately tore into the package and started prancing around my house like a kid - they are just so fun! The best part - I get to share the love with you guys, because I get to give a pair away!


Of course, I had to actually road test these beauties in order to give a proper review. I had an amazing opportunity to do a fun run with the famed Dean Karnazes on Saturday - so I decided that would be the best time to give my ZUZA Compression Socks a spin. They felt great - snug, stayed in place and didn't cause any uncomfortable rubbing as I have found with other brands. The socks got tons of attention from grown-ups and kids alike (little girls were IN LOVE with them - go figure.) Dean's assistant even asked me where she could find them, because she had never seen compression socks like them before! Of course, I told her all about them.

Testing out my ZUZAs with Dean Karnazes. AWESOME.
Since the fun run was very short and not really the proper conditions for compression, I used them the following day after an 18 mile long run. They felt great during and after all those miles.

Some of you might not be familiar with the concept of compression gear. What's it all about? Lunatik Athletiks' compression gear is designed to do the following:
  • improve endurance by reducing muscle vibration
  • reduce build-up of lactic acid in the muscles
  • speed up muscle recovery
  • provide comfort for sore and fatigued muscles
  • improve blood circulation
  • reduce injury
  • 72% Nylon 28% Lycra CE, FDA and GMP certified for quality assurance  
What are you waiting for? Head over to Lunatik Athletiks and do some shopping! I truly loved these, and I'm anxious to order another pair (I have to decide which funky pattern I need the most!)
