Recently Pro Compression had a sale on its “grab-bags” of marathon compression socks, which means you pay a reduced price for three pairs of socks that may be missing the logo or have a custom design or logo.
Even at the normal price these grab bags are a great deal (US$65 compared to $50 per pair), but with the additional discount C and I just couldn’t pass it up. We got two sets, figuring that any pink socks would defer to me (even through I already have two pairs of pink ones – one solid pink and one with neon yellow stars :)).
And yesterday our socktastic bounty arrived!
As you can see, there are three distinctly “feminine” pairs:
And three more masculine or gender neutral sets:
So it didn’t take much discussion to divvy them up.
As far as I can tell these are perfect condition socks, just the same as you would get if you ordered them specifically. It’s just a bit of a gamble on the colour, which isn’t an issue if you have a way to split them. I wish I had got something different than the hot pink ones because I already have those, but overall I’m super impressed with the quality and value.
But the best part is that the pair on the left of my set is a new design that I haven’t seen before. I’ll be rocking those ones on this weekend’s long run so stay tuned for some more pics on Sunday!
