Lily Trotters Compression Socks Review and Giveaway!

Disclosure:  Lily Trotters provided me with a pair of compression socks in exchange for a product review.  No additional compensation was received for this post.  As always, all opinions are my own.

If you are a long-time reader of this blog, you probably know that I am a big supporter of compression for recovery.  I am also a fan of supporting small businesses that are making products right here in the good old USA.  So, when I received the opportunity to test out a pair of compression socks from the Maryland based company, Lily Trotters, I was really interested to see how they would fare compared to some of the other compression products that I use on a regular basis.

Lily Trotters Compression Socks

First off, I love the look of these socks.  The frilly detail at the top of the socks is one aspect that sets these socks apart from competitors.  As someone who likes to sneak in wearing compression to work, I quickly found myself wondering how some of the other patterns and colors of Lily Trotters would look with knee-high boots for the fall.  The answer is, I think that they are the perfect compression sock to wear to work!  Plus, the sock is thin enough to wear with something other than my running shoes.  And, I imagine that they are loved by women that have to stand on their feet at work all day.  Lily Trotters states that they are all about fashion + fitness and I can certainly see why.  Here are a few notes straight from the source:

Fashion + Fitness = The Lily Trotters Difference
–       Feminine and sassy designs knit right into the socks
–       High performance, built strong enough to run marathons
–       100% micro nylon weave in beautiful custom colors and designs
–       Comfortable to wear for many hours
–       Thin enough to fit inside any style of shoe
–       15-20 mmHg graduated compression
–       USA tested high-performance gradient compression
–       Cushioned heels and reinforced toes
–       Moisture wicking and antimicrobial
–       100% sourced and made in the USA

With marathon training season gearing up, these socks are one of the tools I plan to use to keep my legs feeling fresh during this training cycle.  So, if you are curious about these socks and want to get a pair on your happy feet, be sure to support the kickoff of Lily Trotter’s Kickstarter campaign tomorrow, July 14 at 11:30 am EST.  Lily Trotters needs your support with Kickstarter to fund the launch of the first manufacturing run of Lily Trotters plus you will receive pre-order savings!

  2. Love compression socks after a run! Lily Trotters seem like a perfect combo of feminine & functional! 🙂

  3. I am a huge fan of compression; I wear socks for every run, and sleeves overnight for recovery. I’m excited that Lilly Trotters are made in MD; it’s where I live and co-lead a chapter of Moms RUN This Town. I’ll definitely be sharing these socks and new company with the gals!

  4. I can't wait to try these!! I Usually use sleeves, but def would try these cute socks!

  5. Love compression socks for my runs and recovery! These are super cute! Can’t wait to try them!!

    I'm a huge fan of compression although to be honest I haven't been using my compression socks lately because it's so hot in Florida. I think I'm going to break them out tonight. My legs could use it!

  9. I love compression and use it often. One of my recovery tricks is an easy run, it moves blood back into the muscles aiding and speeding up recovery.

  10. kristenk says:

    I love compression socks! These are way cuter than the usual ones though and I definitely need a pair!

  11. I love these..never seen any so cute!

  12. wdickson210 says:

    I am a believer in all things compression. After my 1st Full Marathon my legs were so sore. I put on compression socks for recovery and I swear they made them feel so much better. I am all about compression with a little style too. I look forward to supporting LilyTrotters. Good luck to them!!!

  13. Kristina Rocafort says:

  19. Nikki Fahey says:

    I love long compression socks for 8+ mile runs. Relaxing around the house is my recovery trick.

  23. I love socks, compression or otherwise. It’s too hot in the middle of the summer right now though, so I’m using the foam roller until the heat wave subsides.

  24. Jennifer Denmark says:

    I’ve never tried compression socks. Crazy huh?! I’d love to give them a try though.

  25. Love the polka dots! Have yet to order some compression socks, but these are super cute!

  36. ahotsouthernmess says:

    would love to try some socks!

  37. Jilly Bean says:

    I love compression socks for recovery. I've also used them for longer training runs and races as it gets colder. Can't make it through a summer run with them on my legs though, just too hot. I love those polka dots, and Cora's sweet face.

  38. I LOVE compression!!! I don’t do any runs over 10 miles without compression socks. I fly everywhere with compression socks. I recover with compression sleeves and if anything is hurting in the lower legs, I use CWx compression capris to get to those aches! I definitely need a cute pair like this to feed my addiction!!

  39. Yanira wardlaw says:

    I need to get me some compression socks! I'm training for a marathon and could really used some!
