Tiux - Run, Jump, Play

About a month ago, I was contacted by Steven Saepan at Tiux to review their compression socks.  I was excited to give them a try for two reasons: because I love all things running and I've never worn a pair of compression socks!  I know!! It's a travesty right?! #runnerproblems

Don't forget to enter my giveaway at the end of this post! Tiux has been gracious enough to give away a free pair to one lucky winner and YOU get to choose your color!

For those who are wondering, Tiux is pronounced "Tee-oo" and it means to run or jump in Mien.   

These socks are adorable! The sizing chart on-line was spot on and they arrived very quickly to my door.   I also feel they were packaged beautifully! 

These compression socks come in a variety of colors for men and women and are quite comfortable.  The fabric feels especially nice on my feet!  They allowed my feet to breath and wick sweat nicely and performed very well in the cold MN temperatures. I tested them in 11 degrees and my feet stayed toasty the entire run! 

I have tested them out multiple times during many different types of runs; from shorter speed workouts, to long runs, to treadmill runs.  And ladies... I've received lots of compliments on how cute they are!  We always want to be cute when running right?!

Let's talk shop for a second though.  These socks are the REAL DEAL! I suffer from sore shins when I increase my mileage above about 25 miles per week.  My calves have been particularly tight as well.  I think this is due to my hilly location.   I tend to run on the tips of my toes when I train on hills.

If you want more information on the benefits of graduated compression socks, go here.  There is a detailed description of all of the benefits to wearing these fancy and stylish socks!  

These socks help aid in my recovery very nicely.  My shin soreness is minimal or even absent most days and my calf muscles have been less sore as well.  I was skeptical because I just thought that shin and calf soreness were part of being a runner.  Not anymore!  My soreness is not completely gone.... But it for sure is better!  I am pleasantly surprised by the functionality of the socks for sure! 

They wash great and I hang dry them.  It was a bit comical the first time I put them on though.  Be sure to check out the Tiux website for a video about how to properly put them on.  Little did I know, inside out is best and then you simply roll them up!  It really is very easy!

At $35, the cost is reasonable for a great product!  Make sure to visit their website and snag yourself a pair!  Or better yet... Enter my giveaway below!   The giveaway ends Feb. 29th!  Please leave your e-mail for contact information!

  1. Those are super cute! I've never worn Tiux socks before, but $35 is a great price.

  2. I had to google what "Mien" was :)
    $35 is not bad at all for compression socks. And they are really cute!
