Rated 4 out of 5 by popo23 2XU Compression Calf Guards a great purchase!
After continually feeling deep calf pain and soreness after running, I decided to give these a try. I've only had these about a week so far, but there's been a noticeable improvement in soreness since I've started using them.

This is an excellent product for preventing lower leg injuries (e.g., cramps, spasms, strains, et al.) and improving functionality and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rayp89 Wonderful Product!
I have two pairs of these calf complression sleeves and I love them both! I won't run without them. They are perfect for keeping your calves warm and keeping them from cramping. I just Dick's had more colors to choose from....hint, hint!!
Great product to have in your gym bag for the average to experienced runner!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob25 Glad I bought them!
This is my first time using calf guards. Wow, they work! Whether I'm biking or running, they kept my calves in better condition in the winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alfred in MS Yes, they ARE effective
These was my first purchase of compression calf sleeves. Two weeks ago I ran a 15k and was practically crippled from mile 5 thru the end with clenched calves. This morning I ran a half-marathon with the 2XU's and feel quite fine afterwards. My calves had marginal soreness during the race but my running form remained smooth and I was able to kick during the 13th mile. Note: before today 9.4 miles on 11/30 was my longest race ever.
Are they expensive? Yes. Do I care what they cost? No, because they prevent a quite painful and frustrating problem for me.
I don't need them in 5k's and 10k's, but they are vital at 7 miles and longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteamRoller72 A "must have" for the multisport athlete in training
The 2XU compression calf guards are a tremendous product! Horribly overpriced, but tremendous nonetheless. I see negative reviews and I'm shocked...PICK THE CORRECT SIZE! I'm 6'00", 194 pounds with 15 1/2" calf circumference. Size medium works perfect for me. I run or bike 5 days a week and this product increases blood flow to my calf area and assists in cramp prevention #assuming I'm properly hydrated and not low on potassium#. I'll be back for multiple pairs in different color ways...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Patrick 67 COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY
This product does NOT work!!! All it does is fit on your leg and then you have the pain still and with these on you know its between the top of them and the bottom. It doesn't help with pain at all. It will actually cost you money to buy them. After you realize they don't work you have to waste time and gas to take them back. Wouldn't have even given 1 star had there been a lower rating.
Cashier even said everyone they had sold had been returned.
