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.
