"My name is Christy and I am a colleague of Kathy. We both work in the Career Development Office of a business school, supporting and coaching MBA and MS students to help them develop meaningful careers. Knowing I am a runner, Kathy gave me a pair of Lily Trotters in early January, ironically, right after I had signed up to run the Charleston half marathon on Jan. 16, 2016. So I decided to give them a try and love them. I have worn compression socks before, but none as comfortable or as stylish as the Lily Trotters!
During the actual race, I sported the Lily Trotters and not only felt warm and protected, but I felt empowered with my stylish socks. I have always been a big fan of wearing gear to look the part, regardless of my performance, but I am proud to say I not only looked the part, I was told I was inspiration to another runner who completed the Charleston half marathon on Jan. 16, 2016. A woman approached me after the finish line and told me she noticed me in my pink shirt and "those socks" and thought I would be her person to beat (or pace with). This is perhaps the most touching moment of my running career to date. She said she saw me ahead of her and decided it would be her goal to catch me. She then said while she didn’t end up catching me, she was inspired to run faster because of me. I was touched. And I believe I was noticed because of my Lily Trotters!"

“The socks are amazing! Wore them for my 9-5:30 shift and felt energized all day. The staff at work love the way they look. Definitely feel there is a major market for them, from the super runner crowd to the retail group, to anyone who is on their feet a lot. Customers also expressed a strong interest in something fashionable looking for the men. Fun socks that make me feel energized!”

“I am an RN and work long shifts. After hours of walking around on hard floors, my legs and feet ache. When I wore the Lilly Trotters my legs and feet felt much better by the end of my shift. They improved the circulation in my legs, and my feet were less puffy! They felt great! I also liked their thickness, or thinness rather, as some compression socks make me hot after running around. I took them for a spin through the park on an eight mile run, and was glad I did. My feet and legs felt great during my run! I would recommend Lilly Trotters to nursing, athletes, and anyone who spends many hours of their feet!”

“As a Crossfitter, I'm always looking for extra shin protection. Rope climbs, deadlifts and box jumps can all result in cuts and scrapes and regular knee-high socks often don't fit well or feel secure in training shoes. Lily Trotters fit me perfectly, provide good coverage for my shins and have the added benefit of being a compression sock, which is always useful when we incorporate running in our WODs. Love the feel of this product and they look great with my work out clothes.”

"I love my Lily Trotters! I sit all day while I work and my feet end up swollen. The first time I tried my Lily Trotters I had a function to attend where I would be on my feet all evening after a long day of sitting. I thought I would put them to the test and wear them all day. The results were terrific-- my feet didn't swell and become uncomfortable in my shoes at all! After I had such great results I decided to try them on a recent trip overseas. I put them on in the morning, my flight was scheduled for late afternoon but it was delayed by 5 hours! This meant that by the time I reached my destination I was over the 24-hour mark. I ended up not taking them off until I was ready for bed, 30 hours after I put them on! Again, my feet were comfortable and did not become puffy after the flight and all those hours of travel. Thank you Lily Trotters for such a great product!!"

"In 2014, I ran a number of fun and exciting events both on and off-road from half marathon to ultra-marathon distances. While my arsenal of race gear changed depending on variables like weather, distance and aid station presence, one thing remained constant...I always wore my Lily Trotters. In a racing crowd of 40k to a long day on quiet trails, Lily Trotters will get you noticed, often when you need it most. Don't be surprised if you hear "Great socks!" followed by a few words of much needed encouragement as you pass fellow runners and spectators alike. I love my Lily Trotters and look forward to more polka-dotted adventures in 2015!"

"Lily Trotters are so soft and comfortable, I forgot I was wearing compression socks! The colors and design are fun and unique, a great addition to my running outfit. I wear them for long runs, walk and recovery; they're an essential part of my training. They make me feel stylish while sporty, love the colors and designs!

“As a runner and a Fashion Industry professional I always have two goals when I hit pavement; #1 Have the best run I've ever had & #2 Look as cute as possible while I am running. As I started running longer distances and flying across the country, I noticed shin pain and swelling in my lower legs, ankles, and feet. A friend of mine suggested I wear compression socks. Then another friend who is just as fashion conscious as I am introduced me to Lily Trotters. I was sold the minute she showed them to me! I wore them for the first time and my legs had never felt better during and after my run and they complimented my running attire so well! ”

“I thought they were cute. Loved the colors. They felt awesome. They were very comfortable and felt like my legs were being supported with a gentle squeeze. My legs didn't feel heavy or tired- I felt like I had more energy and could workout longer. Great product, can't wait to wear them in my next race.”

“Whether I am heading out for a long run, or preparing to stand in my kitchen all day, I always reach for the comfort and style of my Lily Trotters compression socks…in addition to looking great, they provide just the right amount of pressure without over-constricting. A must-have for any athlete or woman who is on her feet all day! In addition to looking great, (Lily Trotters) provide just the right amount of pressure without over-constricting.

"Great compression socks for my run training? Yes, but it doesn't end there! As a teacher, I am always on my feet and these socks are a God send on long days. I also wore them recently when flying to Hong Kong and was amazed at how they kept swelling at bay--a problem I've had in the past during long flights. Thanks Lily Trotters--awesome product and super cute to boot!!"
