CEP Compression Socks Giveaway

cep compression socks photoGood news, loyal NMA readers.  Based perhaps on how pleased I was with CEP compression socks (or, more likely, on Chris H.’s wistful comment, “No free giveaway though? :O[ “), CEP Compression Sportswear has offered up a pair of their compression socks to give away to a reader!

This might be the coolest giveaway I’ve ever done, so I’m excited.

Here’s all you need to do to enter.

1.  Head over to CEP’s website.

2.  Figure out which of their socks or sleeves you’d most like to win.  (They have the running socks and all-sport sleeves that I reviewed, plus walking socks, trekking socks, skiing socks, and soccer sleeves.)

3.  Leave a comment on this post telling me which ones you’d choose.

As always, this contest is as non-techie friendly as possible.  Tweets, Facebook shares, link, and subscribes are all GREATLY appreciated and will boost your karma, but they won’t actually increase your chances of winning.

I’ll select a random winner a week from now.  Good luck!

Important info about the compression sleeves

After reading my review, Michael from CEP Compression Sportswear also gave me a word of warning that I thought I should pass on to you.

Apparently, wearing the sleeves (which don’t cover your feet, like the socks do) for long periods of time can cause swelling in your feet, as blood pools there.  Not everyone will have the problem, so train in them before racing to figure out if they work for you.  But the sleeves are really designed for short runs, and definitely NOT for long car rides or flights, as the swelling could even be dangerous if not addressed.  (For that matter, any compression tights that stop at the ankle should not be worn for car and plane rides.)

The full socks put compression on the feet to prevent swelling and are therefore better than the sleeves for longer-period use.  So when I used the sleeves for my long run this weekend, I probably should have been wearing the socks instead.  Oops.  Luckily, I’m still alive and kickin’.  icon smile

Now get those entries in!

  4. Ooo….I would totally love CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks! After my long run I love to put my feet up and give them a rest. I’ve got several different brands and have wanted to try CEP but the budget isn’t allowing me to right now.

  8. Hi Matt!

    I’d go with the CEP Running O2 Compression socks. And if I had the option of color, I’d totally go with the bright pink! :o)

    I’d sure enjoy a pair of the CEP Running Progressive Socks. I’m thinking they’d be great at reducing pain for Marathon+ distances.

  19. I eould like to try the CEP Progressive Running in Black…

  20. oooooh. The hot pink Running O2 Compression Socks for sure!

  21. Awesome. I love my Zensah compression socks but would love to try the CEP. If I win I’ve like the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks.

    I wear the socks for recovery mainly but have had great success traveling in them and not feeling dead-legged after a long trip.

  22. I would absolutely go with the hot pick compression socks! In fact, I have that exact pair on hold at a local running store. Maybe I will have to hold off picking them up in case I win :-) Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. I recently purchased these Lululemon compression socks and would love to see how they compare with CEP! I would love to try the Running Progression Compression Socks.

    The posts on compression socks are really helpful!

  24. I would love to try the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks. I’ve used other compression socks for recovery, but never tried them while running. (I might have to wait for winter, when no one will be able to see them under my tights.)

  25. I would go with the CEP Running O2 Compression Socks in hot pink. Thanks for the giveaway. Just started following this blog, it’s awesome :)

  26. I would love to win a free pair of the CEP RUNNING COMPRESSION SOCKS. They look awesome. I’m a poor graduate student so haven’t been able to invest in a pair just yet…

  27. The black running socks would be great to try. This is a pretty cool give-away.

  28. I’d try out the Running O2 compression socks in hot pink please. Love the color in those!

    .-= Erica´s last blog ..Easy Pasta Salad, BAoK, Charleston Meet up =-.

  30. I would go for a pair of CEP Running O2 socks. I’ve only seen one guy wearing compression socks during a race, and I have to say that he looked somewhat ridiculous, but if they give you 5% improvement, I’d do it too!
    .-= Jesse N.´s last blog ..I’m Still Alive =-.

  31. I would go with the CEP Running O2 Compression Sportsocks in PINK :)

    The first time I saw an athlete wearing them it was Chrissie Wellington as she was signing autographs after we did the Timberman 70.3 half ironman.

  32. OMG WANT! I would go for the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks, in the hot pink color. I’ve got some cheaper Nike compression socks that I like OK, but I’d really like to try some really GOOD compression socks and see if I can detect a difference!

    I’m running a “private marathon” pretty soon as a birthday present to myself. Those compression socks could come in pretty handy for such an event. :)

  33. I would love a pair of the all-sport socks in hot pink!! Love the color! Thanks!

  34. This is great! I’ve never tried compression socks but I’ve always wanted to! If I had the chance, I’d try the Running O2 Compression Sportsocks. Thanks Matt :)

  35. I would like to win the compression sleeves!

  36. I love the CEP Running O2 Compression Socks in hot pink– the color alone would make me run my marathons faster!

  37. Great giveaway! Definitely worth de-lurking for. These would’ve come in handy for Boston training, but would love a pair for my next marathon. The Running O2 Compression Sportsocks in black would be my pick.

  38. With the update on the scariness of wearing the sleeves for long runs, I opted to comment on the progressive running socks. I need my feet!! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  39. Jenny C. says:

    I’ve only worn compression socks on flights, but I think it would be great to try them on my runs…. hmmm, would the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks help???Maybe if I go for the hot pink, the run will be that much faster! Great giveaway. Thanks!

  40. The black CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks look fantastic! I’d choose those.

  41. i like the CEP Running O2 Compression Socks in pink. and thanks for the sleeve information

  42. Chris H. says:

    I would love a pair of CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks. Thanks Matt!

  43. i’ve been hearing more people trying compression socks. if i were so lucky, i would like CEP Running O2 Compression Socks in white (despite the fact that those probably turn a lovely dingy color fastest!).

  44. I would absolutely love to try the CEP Running O2 Compression Socks!
    .-= ashley´s last blog ..Luna Bar Review and Pictures =-.

  45. Awesome! I’d like the CEP O2 compression socks in pink. Thanks!

  48. Valentina says:

    Walking would work wonders for me, especially since I do about 7 miles a day of it :)

  49. CEP Running O2…would love these! Thank you for the giveaway.

  50. Ooh, tough call on the choice. I was originally going to go for the sleeve as well but after your warning, maybe I’d go for the socks, just in case! Would be awesome to wear during a marathon because after my 20 last weekend, my calves were cramping bad as soon as I stopped!!

  51. Jason D. says:

    Wouldn’t mind trying out some of the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks. Though I’ll have to measure my calves. :)

    As an aside, I’ve seen a couple references that actually wearing them during the run may not do much (other than a psychological benefit…which isn’t bad!) but that they’re great for recovery. I’ll have to see if I can find those articles. Of course, they’re more than worth it for style point! ;)

  52. sweet giveaway!
    i’d choose the running socks. they look great! :D

  53. I would try the black running compression socks.

  54. I’ve been keen to try these for a while now – both for the calf support and also to evaluate their effectiveness in protecting the shins from vegetation when running off-trail (I’m a competitive orienteer). I don’t want to give up my Thorlo Trail Runner socks, so I’d go for the sleeves in a Mens Size IV(4) in Black.

  55. Ohhh…I would love to win a pair of these! I would love the Running 02 compression socks!

    Awesome! I am trrying to get back into distance running. It is a slow progression and I would love to try CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks!

  57. Very sweet. I would love those CEP Progressive compression running socks. It never would have occurred to me about the swelling of the feet over the long run but that makes sense! Thanks for the tip.

  61. I was just telling my friend about your blog post on the compression socks/sleeves today! I would love to try the good old socks. I don’t really understand the difference between the two models, but they both look/sound helpful!

  62. I would love to try a pair of all sports compression sleeves. As a 193 lb distance runner, i need all the help i can get on my long runs. On my 20 miler this past weekend, I experience some calf pain and was actually thinking about how much I could benefit from something like this!

    P.S. I enjoy the site big time.

    Tom

  63. It really is amazing what a good pair of socks can do, and these babies sound pretty amazing. I’d go for their trekking socks because my job involves a lot of hiking.

  64. After an injury last year I do all my runs in compression socks because my legs feel great afterward. I need get another pair so I can rotate them. I’d love to try the running compression socks, in pink of course. :)

    I haven’t been running for too long, but I do occasionally experience heaviness in my legs after a particularly strenuous bout of running. Also, the nurses at work will wear something similar to help circulation etc. b/c they are on their feet ALL day! I would love to win the CEP All Sports Sleeves (in white)…b/c the socks would be difficult to use with my VFFs! Thank you for the opportunity.

  68. Great idea for a giveaway!

    I would love the CEP All Sports Compression Sleeves (Men III in black)

    So, I would like to try the sports compression sleeves.
    Thanks

    I’ve been hesitant to buy compression socks because they all seem so similar, but the prices can vary widely. After reading your reviews on Recovery Socks, SIGVARIS, and now CEP, it looks like these are the ones to go with. I hope I win!!

Good karma come my way!

    i would love to win these CEP Running O2 Compression Socks (in pink, of course!) since i’m moving to san francisco and will be doing some serious hill running! :)

  123. I would love to try the CEP Progressive Running Socks – woman’s in white – please no pink!

    I received severe leg injuries almost 6 years ago in an accident. Doc almost amputated my left leg, but took a risk, did days of surgery and saved it – yes! But they weren’t sure of the level of recovery it would have. Years of physical therapy, hours of walking and last year I began running again! (pre-accident I was a marathon runner) I ran in 5Ks last year and did a 6-mile race this past weekend and loved it.
    Both my calves are still funky, especially the left one and I think these socks would help my running as I prepare for my first half-marathon later this summer.

  124. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks. I am less than a week away from Boston ( I finally qualified as well) and am battling with awful insertional tendentious…so much so that I may not be able to run :( I will try anything to help these legs!!

  128. Great giveaway! I would love to try the black CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks. Hopefully they’ll help me as I get back into shape after my baby :D

  129. Awesome giveaway – right after I read your post yesterday I did some research to find out where the socks are sold near me (but maybe I’ll get lucky and won’t have to buy them now, right?!). If I won I’d get the running compression socks, ideally in pink :)

  130. I’d love to try out the running O2 compression socks. Good thing your feet didn’t swell up!

  131. Matt, I’m happy to have just discovered your blog! I’ve been busy reading through your archives and learning from your experience. Thanks for taking the time.

    And while I’m at it, I’m intrigued by the science behind these compression socks, so if my random number comes up, I’ll take a pair of those black progressive compression running socks.

    :)

  132. I’d kill (ok, not really) for a pair of 02 Compression socks in HOT PINK! I like to wear bold colors on the race course …

  133. I love the simplicity of entering the contest. All of those different ways to enter can get to be so much! And just for that, I will also tweet about it! :)

    I am oddly having a hard time deciding between the socks and the sleeves. I think I’d pick the socks (CEP Running Progressive Compression socks). And although black would be more practical, I love me some pink and life is about having fun, right? So I’d go with pink!

    Great, great giveaway, and thanks for the thorough review.

  134. Ooh!

    I would go for the CEP All Sports Compression Sleeves (since I run in FiveFingers) in black (which would be more forgiving on muddy trails).
    .-= Ingunn´s last blog ..I’m just passing time =-.

  135. I want the CEP Running Progressive Socks!! While I think hot pink would be supa cool, I’d rather have ‘em in black so nobody would know how many puddles I run through! ;)
    .-= Catherine´s last blog ..Sushi time! =-.

  136. I would like to try the CEP All Sports Compression Sleeves, I am picky about my socks, so I think the sleeves would be better for me.

  137. After reading your review I went to the local REI and was sad to see they had no compression socks. If I were to be the lucky winner of a pair of these nifty socks, I would choose the CEP Running 02 Compression Socks size II in white. (I’ve heard it’s bad to run in black socks because the dye seeps into your sweaty feet.) Thanks for the opportunity!

  138. Well, after reading the info about swelling feet, I would definitely go with the running compression socks. The CEP Running O2 Compression Socks in black would be my pick!

  139. Thanks for the giveaway! I’d love to try the CEP running O2 compression socks! If only they came in polka dots…

  140. I would choose the CEP Running Progressive Compression Sports Socks– after your review anyone would be silly not to want a pair!

  141. Kristine says:

    I would love a pair of white compression socks! It’s a long shot, but you can’t win if you don’t play!

  142. I’d pick the CEP Running 02 Compression Socks because they come in pink!

  143. I think I would want to try the soccer socks! I don’t play soccer, but I do play ultimate frisbee, which is very similar athletically, but with even more running. Plus I’m recovering from knee surgery!

  144. Well I saw the “Why lurk?” question, and decided that I WOULDN’T! This is my first time visiting your site as I am trying to transition into less/no meat.

    I would definitely love the all sport sleeve. For me socks and shoes aren’t a regular for every run so I think the sleeves would work the best with how I stride.

  145. laura marsh says:

    CEP Running 02 Compression socks — I would LOVE a pair of good compressions socks for running!

  146. I’d definitely go for the pink O2 compression socks! I’ve been working on building my arches, which has wrecked a bit of havoc on my ankles, so I’ve been looking into compression for quicker recovery. Plus, pink goes with my pre-wrap headbands ;-)

  147. I would DEFINITELY get the hot pink running compression socks — have always wanted to try a pair!!

  148. Love the running socks…gotta go with the hot pink..

  151. I’d definitely take the pink socks!!! They’d go great with my orange newtons! I’m glad I read that follow up on the sleeves v socks as I only have sleeves that I use all the time, even wore during ironman. Luckily I didn’t have any problems with feet swelling but I need those pink socks so I make sure not to in the future.

  163. Andy Gingrich says:

    Would love some (white) running SOCKS!

  164. Hot Pink All Sport Sleeves please! I figure if I’m going to be wearing them, might as well show a little flair. I’ve read that they can be good for those of us with low blood pressure, so I can’t wait to try them out.

  165. Hmmm…hot pink sleeves! I’m a beginner runner, running my 1st 5k on May 1st…always thought id hate running but I actually am falling in love with it…go figure that I get those darned shin splints and compression really feels good! Hot pink makes me smile. Bless! Les.

  166. I’d love to be able to afford a pair of the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks. I’m a nurse so between work and working out, my feet and legs are always hurting!

  167. Jason Walsh says:

    I could greatly benefit from the
    “CEP Running Progressive Compression Sock”
    for distance running and a recent calf issue. Thanks for the great reads.
    Cheers

  168. I have wanted to try compression socks for such a long time now that I’m increasing my running distances, but I’ve been hesitant to spend the money. But the CEP Running O2 Compression Socks look so cool!
    .-= Lisa´s last blog ..Moving time! =-.

  169. Hot pink running compression socks for sure!

    Also, thanks for keeping such a wonderful blog. You’ve encouraged me to try being a vegetarian, and given me hope that I might be able to qualify for Boston in October. Thank you!

  173. scottie c says:

    I would definitely like to win the CEP Running Progressive Compression Sock. I’ve heard a little bit about these things helping people in their races.

    Plus has the addition of blister prevention. That would surely help out in those long trail runs.

  174. Claibel says:

    Black running socks would be wonderful :)

  175. I’d pick the O2 white! :)

  176. A great compression sock you should try is the SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Sock, http://www.athleticrecoverysock.com

    I think it’s the best sports compression sock on the market.

  177. Molly Ratcliffe says:

    I would love small pink compression socks.

  178. Charlotte says:

    The pink socks are amazing!! I think I am officially in love with them! I started wearing compression socks when I started steeplechasing to give my calf muscles support. Although a few nasty accidents later I quit the ‘chase, I have stuck with the socks, and have really felt the benefit during and after track sessions. I’m a brit, and I think we’ve had the sock craze a bit longer than you guys thanks to the Paula Radcliffe effect, but we can only get them in black or white. I came to the US last year and your running kit is so much more fun! US size 6. Have a good season everyone. x

  189. Rick Thompson says:

    I have recently started longer distance running, and triathlons. I would love a pair of the CEP Running O2 Compression Socks in White.

  190. Dana Thompson says:

    dream sock = CEP Running O2 Compression Socks {white, pretty please}

  191. David Cajiuat says:

    I’ve worn both CEP and Zensah and I must say, I’m sold on both sleeves. I love them equally and would recommend them to any long distance runner. I’ve only started running long (10+ miles) recently and prior to wearing calf sleeves, after each of my runs my calves would be sore and it would take a while to recover. However, since I’ve begun wearing compression sleeves, it makes the mileage much easier and recovery quicker.

  192. David Cajiuat says:

    Oh, I’d like the CEP All Sport Compression Sleeve in black size small(for my wife). I need to get her convinced and she’s starting to develop varicose veins.

  193. Kate Edwards says:

    Hi Matt
    Thank you for the very frank and honest feedback on the compression socks and shorts. I have been increasing my mileage in preparation for a marathon and was interested in finding out about the benefits of compression shorts and socks and found your website. Your personal recommendation of the compression sock has me sold on this accessory so I am hoping I can win a pair. My choice of compression sock from the CEP website would be the CEP Running 02 Compression Sock women size (III) in pink or white please.

  194. I think that it’s amazing that you’re giving away a free pair of these socks. I have a secondary school, semi-national, cross country race coming up, and have been looking at the CEP Running Progressive Compression Socks, Black, Women’s size, II. I would really like these, and they would really help me with my running!

  195. elaine huey says:

    Just looking as the allsports compression calf sleeves
    gave my calves a feeling of support. They have a sleek
    and hi-tech look about them. Winning a pair would be
    stupendous!
    EH

  196. Sharon williamson says:

    Hot pink compression socks please for my first Disney half marathon this feb 2013 so excited!!! Would love these socks to complete my costume woohoo

  197. Jason Hettinger says:

    Black All Sport Comporession Sleeves. I’ve played sports all my life (40 years old), then after joined military (20 years ago and still going strong) I decided jump into other non traditional sports doing running events, mountain biking then onto triathlons. I still do many of these but am amped up doing mud runs (just did Tough Mudder) and have made it a goal to get others involved and have had great success. Would love a pair for my many sports for protection and muscle fatigue! BTW…grew up a hunter/farmer and now a vegetarian for 5 years…love it!!

  198. Claire Zanatta says:

    I would love to try a pair of the classic pink compression socks! I have just started running after having two kids and have signed up for my first half marathon in August! Thinking I should try these to help me get through it :)

  199. I really want…no…NEED those Progressive+ Calf Sleeves in Black! I REALLY need all the help I can get for my first IRONMAN CANADA this summer!! Help me feel better over 140+ miles! :)

  200. John Warren says:

    Great sock to keep the blood into upper torso when pulling 7+ G’s in fighter aircraft.
