Description The main aim of this article is to emphasize the potential effect of compression clothing in a group of runners. We want to provide an objective view on evaluation of the advantages or potential risks in the use of compression clothing (socks or calf sleeves). This work is not a metanalysis, the purpose of this study provides basic information about the use of compression clothing. The work focuses on selected parameters which directly or indirectly determine the sport performance and affects the ability to repeat the sport performance. The scientific literature describes only two potential effects of compression clothing (increased venous flow and reduced muscle oscillation). As with most trends that come and go in sports, it takes a while to evaluate with the practice for the science. In our work, we focus on selected parameters with regard compression value. Based on scientific sources, the effect of compression clothing for sport performance and recovery is unclear. It is also caused by applied compression which is not also written in scientific literature. At this point, we want to emphasize this fact is probably important not only for future study design but also for customers. It makes sense if the different compression pressure lead to different results then it should exist the gold standard depending on the pressure and types of physical activity.
