Hilly Clothing Hilly Marathon Fresh Compression Socks

Running Calf Guards & Compression Socks
  • UK 9-11.5

The super-popular men's running sock Hilly Marathon Fresh now comes in a higher, compression version. A great sock for long distances or intensive training, this sock gives you all you need: cushioning, compression and odour control.


Anatomical cushioning protects the high impact/friction areas of the foot but it's not too thick so your feet won't overheat. There are no undertoe seams to rub or dig either. The upper is vented for better breathability and the fabric wicks sweat away from the skin. Polygiene treatment neutralises the odour-causing bacteria so the socks stay fresh for a longer time. The calf compression is strongest around the ankle and gets lighter towards the knee to help improve the blood circulation so that the oxygen gets into the muscles faster and lactic acid gets flushed out faster. The compression also decreases muscle oscillation and therefore helps prevent calf muscle injuries or shin splints, and generally helps to improve performance as well as recovery.

Light Compression (top part of the sleeve):

Gentle compression allows the blood flow to move efficiently out of the calf muscle; including transporting the lactate built up in the muscles to the liver to oxidize the lactate.

Moderate Compression (mid section of the sleeve):

The compression fades from the lower firm compression area to the gentle light compression zone towards the top of the sock or sleeve. The key function of the moderate compression zone is to keep the muscles supported and facilitate continued circulation.

Firm Compression (bottom part of the sleeve):

This firm zone is where the sock or sleeve is at its most compressive. This zone gives a boost to circulation starting the process of flushing the built up lactate within the muscles up towards the liver.

  • Graduated compression for better muscle support, blood flow & recovery
  • Polygiene technology - anti-odour
  • Midweight cushioning
  • Vented upper
  • No toe seams
  • 93% Polyamide, 7% Elastane
