Few physical activities are as simple and pure as running. Whether it's going up and down the track at the local oval or training for a marathon for hours at a time, there's a focus and endurance that's rarely felt in other sports. Keeping it up can be tricky when soreness and pain strikes, and heavy and stiff legs afterwards can leave you reluctant to go back out. Wearing running compression socks is a great way to remedy this issue, providing compression to the legs and feet for a better time each run.
Bauerfeind's legacy of medical-grade compression has been lasting for more than 90 years, and has only improved over time. Whether it's sport socks for running or compression running sleeves, you've got the best in lightweight and ultra-breathable socks for each and every run.
Most of our Performance line is designed for wear during active movement rather than all day, while our main range (products ending in "Train" or "Loc") are better suited for injury management and all day wear, whether it's sports, exercise, work or just chores around the house.
If you're unsure if the support you're looking at is ideal for all day wear, just give us a call on 1300 668 466.
These supports are designed to allow for regular range of movement while stabilising the joint and preventing injury. This means you can confidently move in pivots, sudden changes of direction, jumps and landing as well as quick steps and positioning.
Bauerfeind's range of supports are made from an ultra-breathable cotton/elastic weave that's perfect for active use of any level. Clinically shown to vent heat more effectively than any other support, it's perfect for air-flow, temperature regulation and comfort.
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
While any kind of brace or support will have an affect on your physical movement, it's in a positive sense. More stability in the joints and muscles, increased power with each movement and better balance mean that you'll move more effectively. It may take a little bit of adjustment with some supports that have rigid components, but long-term there should only be an improvement in your form.
When you're running, your ankles, knees and feet are under repeated strain, especially if you're moving along harder surfaces. Our supports stabilise the joint movement and minimise stress and fatigue in the muscles, tendons and ligaments, ensuring you get the most out of each run
The beauty of these supports is their versatility. While there are a wide range of products to manage injury (the "Train" and "Loc" range), the performance line is perfect for helping you to get more out of each movement, not only enhancing your exercise for better results, but helping protect you from injury.
