Hello everyone. I've got shin splints for the second year running and have been advised to buy compression tights and neutral trainers. (I have used and loved Brooks Adrenaline for years).
So today I bought some Brooks Defyance shoes, and then tried on some 2xu compression tights. I was about to buy them until I saw the price - £110! These were the elite ones and I could have bought some non-elite ones for (I think) £75 but I tried them on and they didn't feel as tight as the more expensive ones, and I thought as I'm only buying them to be tight, I might as well get the properly tight ones.
Anyway, I didn't buy any as I was so gobsmacked by the price, and thought I would go home and google. Now I've googled all night and I'm confused. Should I get 2xu, or Skins, or what? And do I wear them during my run (I usually run six miles, three or four times a week) or after, or in bed? And what about those calf compression things?
If anyone can advise I would be most grateful.
