This is my first pair of knee sleeves so I dont have any basis for comparison. I bought these when I started noticing knee pain once I’ve ran for more than 4 kilometes and wanted something that is easy to wear and minimal. They helped in relieving the pain which is why I also started using them now when playing other sports such as basketball. These are comfortable and feel great. They provide ample support and also the material used is breathable thus you can wear them for a long period of time. The quality of the material feels premium considering how inexpensive they are. The only issue I have is that sometimes, one of them tend to slightly slip when used for a prolonged period of time which is not concerning because it doesnt happen often and they are easy to adjust. I should have probabaly tried a size smaller. Aside from that, no regrets, I’ve made the right decision in purchasing these based on my needs.
