PRO Compression Unveils Stephanie Bruce’s ‘Faith In the First Step’ Custom Sock


(CARLSBAD, CA—May 16, 2017)— PRO Compression, innovators in compression sock technology and products that are Made in the USA, releases their “Faith in the First Step” compression sock, a collaboration with elite runner and coach, Stephanie Bruce. The Limited Edition sock design was inspired by a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that resonates with Bruce: “Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

Also a mother of two, Bruce recently achieved the World Standard in the 10,000m in April at the Stanford Invitational, while setting a new personal best of 31:59. Bruce also raced the US Half Marathon championships in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, April 29th and placed 6th. Next, Bruce will race for Team USA at the Bolder Boulder 10K on Memorial Day, May 29th before heading to the USA Track Championships in Sacramento at the end of June, with goals to put herself in a position to try to make the World Championships Team in London for the 10,000m.

“Many times during training and life, there is a big-picture-goal and the hardest part about attaining that goal is taking the first step,” says Bruce. “But the most important thing we can do when we set these goals is to believe that the one step, that one workout, or the one tough decision is going to lead to the ultimate goal, even if sometimes we are unable to see what is around the bend – or as Martin Luther King Jr. says, ’the whole staircase.’”

Known for their eye-popping designs and superior comfort, PRO Compression socks and sleeves are made using a proprietary blend of nylon and poly materials, which after years of fine-tuning, are optimally constructed to enhance performance. Founded by athletes, the company uses true graduated compression in their socks, meaning that the amount of compression decreases as the distance to the heart decreases, activating the ideal blood flow to help the body recover faster.

The “Faith in the First Step” sock combines bright colors with a subtle staircase integrated into the design. Bruce says, “We may not always know the outcome, or what is waiting at the top of the stairs, but the motivation behind the design is to keep on climbing. I always love training and racing in different PRO Compression designs, but this one, is my favorite so far, because of both the meaning, and the bright colors that are perfect for spring.” 

The newest Stephanie Bruce socks are available online at Additional PRO Compression products are available online at and are offered in multiple sizes and lengths, from ankle to mid-calf, to full compression socks.
