Great quality and good fit. True to size.
The Sports Compression Sleeves Lower Leg strengthen the muscles in the lower legs through powerful targeted compression. The compressive effect is based on medical research, graduated from ankle to calf to boost blood-flow. This promotes circulation in the legs and improves venous return.
The muscles receive a better supply of oxygen, continue to perform more effectively and regenerate faster. Stimulating blood circulation also causes the lower leg muscles to quickly heat up, which makes them better protected against injury. The compression reduces uncomfortable muscle vibrations in the calf, thus preventing premature fatigue.
Ideal for sports including endurance running, football and tennis.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
I wore the lower leg compression for my first marathon on Sunday. It was my first time wearing the compression and also the first time I haven’t cramped at all on a long run. Would highly recommend
Bauerfind’s service was also second to none, and I would have no hesitation recommending this product
