Product Review: CEP Compression Socks
With that in mind, I was eager to test out German-made CEP compression socks. While they make knee-high compression socks and sleeves that pull up over the calf, I prefer no-show and short socks when playing golf.
Those of you who wear no-show socks are undoubtedly aware of heel slippage. I was once walking off the first tee when my shoe “ate” my sock. Fixing it twice didn’t solve the problem, so I played the rest of the round with one sock. By the turn I had a blister and was miserable on the back nine. This will not happen with CEP, thankfully.
Both the no-show and low models provide targeted compression for improved support and fit, a seamless toe box and anatomically correct design (your left foot is different than your right, after all). The low sock also offers achilles stability for added support and protection.
Assuming you’ve spent plenty of time selecting the right shoe for your foot ... Why not give that comfort an added boost with a quality pair of socks? If you walk the course, like I do, your feet will thank you after 4+ hours trudging up and down miles of hills and valleys.
Listen, golf can be hard enough under ideal circumstances. Don’t let sore, tired feet be a hinderance to your game. We all look for advantages when we can get them. Don’t allow your game to be hit with this disadvantage when it can easily be avoided.
CEP socks aren’t cheap. Nothing worthwhile ever is. You’ll pay $18.50 for the no-show and $22.50 for the low. But here’s the kicker: Their return policy is as simple as it gets. If you don't like them, send them back. If your socks wear out early, they'll replace them. if you’re unhappy with your CEP product for any reason within the first 30 days, they'll give you a full refund. Need more time? If you feel your socks are no longer providing the proper level of compression within the first six months, they'll coordinate a replacement.
What do you have to lose ... aside from sore feet?
