SKINS gradient compression socks are the ideal performance enhancer for any activity where your legs are pushed to the limit. SKINS Engineered Gradient Compression offers targeted calf muscle support and improves circulation, delivering more oxygen to your active muscles. The increased blood flow helps reduce the build up of blood lactate to keep you going harder for longer and recover faster.
The engineered gradient compression technology in SKINS Essentials is specifically designed to increase blood flow and oxygen delivery to working muscles, allowing you to train harder and perform better. SKINS targeted muscle support also helps prevent muscle vibration and oscillation during activity, reducing your risk of injury and helping you recover faster with less post-exercise muscle soreness.

In 1996, an Australian skier had a bold ambition – to feel ten years younger so he could ski all day, party all night and be ready the next morning do it all again.
His starting point was the knowledge that improved blood circulation would supply more oxygen to his muscles, helping them work harder for longer and recover faster. So he consulted with NASA and other experts to confirm he was on to something. Turns out he was.
Soon word got out that there were these things called SKINS that improved your power, speed, stamina and recovery. Pro athletes were the first to start wearing them. Before long, amateur athletes joined the party.
