Support with style Opinion is divided, but what’s not to like about reducing the risk of injury?
Skins K-Proprium Compression Tights £150 ‘These are not for everyone’ is what Skins bravely claim of its K-Proprium compression tights. But if you’re reading this and ‘run to sweat, not to be seen’ chances are they'll suit you just perfectly. So what’s the big deal? Focusing on the well-known fact that when muscles tire they don’t support joints as well as when they’re fresh, Skins has designed these new compression leggings to offer advanced proprioception in order to reduce the risk of injury. Using top Dynamic Gradient Compression technology with carefully placed Proprioceptive Power Bands (which mimic the benefits of kinesiology tape), these leggings offer optimal support. Skins recommends going down a size, especially if you’re on the border of its sizing chart, and although a slight struggle to get on, they’re worth it. Once on, they fit beautifully and provide great support over the legs when running.
