I bought myself a pair of black Falke Compression Energizing Plus Socks, partly for the compression aspect, but admittedly, mainly for the warmth of full-length running socks! Falke is my favorite brand of running socks, and I normally run in Falke Hidden Cool Socks.
The socks are anatomically fitted left and right, and have a seamless construction, ensuring comfort and avoiding any chaffing or potential blisters. Despite obviously being fairly tight on your limb, they are extremely comfortable to wear and to run in.
The use of compression garments for recovery makes sense to me, but I am not yet certain there is actually any benefit to actually training or competing whilst wearing them, despite this becoming quite fashionable.
I found the socks lost their elasticity fairly quickly resulting in them slipping down off my calves and pooling at my ankles.
