The first thing I noticed was that the leg sleeves are a little hard to put on being so tight. That's not too much of a surprise though, as often the first time someone uses a new piece of compression wear, they have to learn how to slowly and carefully get the garment fitted right. After I got them over my size 13 feet and onto my calves, I did not notice until later that I actually had them on backwards, as you will note from the above picture. Realizing this, I fixed them and continued wearing them for several hours, including at the symphony, (under my jeans)!

I mentioned on Twitter that I would be posting this review and if anyone had questions, to let me know. One question that came up from a follower in California was "Are leg sleeves the same as arm sleeves?" I replied that not typically as they are so different in shape. However, I did do due diligence to just make sure I was correct by checking out the Zensah.com website. I was correct, but I also found something that might be a dream come true: I kept thinking while I was using the sleeves on my calves, how awesome it would be to have these things for my thighs, especially after a hard, long trail run...BAM! They do have them!!! Here's the link: Zensah Thigh Compression Sleeves!
