At the risk of looking like a total mong, my calfs' are playing me up and I have heard that compression socks may be the answer. Having seen a running club mate wear some but looking like a balding six form girl withouth the pigtails or other interesting acroutements; this is not a step I am considering lightly! So, before I take such a step, I need to know whether they are really any good. Sub question. sweaty nuts/ groin rash. will compression shorts help?
