If you’re really aiming to please your runner this holiday, look no farther than NormaTec recovery boots which coddle runner’s legs in a pulsing, compression massage from feet to thighs. The Leg Recovery System Pulse 2.0 is one of NormaTec’s most popular products and includes the control unit, hosing, power supply, and two leg attachments. The boots are designed to help increase circulation, reduce pain and soreness from training and racing, and expedite your recovery from one day to the next. The real plus with the Pulse 2.0 is it’s so compact and lightweight (the device weighs in at 3.6 lbs), making it easy to travel with, so you can boost recovery right after your marathon or when a hard training week falls during a work trip. We appreciated the simplicity and ease of set up and how the boots do all the work so we could focus elsewhere—read or catch up on email—while getting the exquisite massage.
