calf - achilles tendon

I'm a 56 year old runner and have almost continual problems getting cramps in the small muscles on the sides of my calves. I purchased the Bio Skin calf sleeve and it seems to help the problem (right leg). I also have problems with my left achilles tendon getting sore. I was wondering if the Bio Skin ankle support with the figure 8 would be the best item to help keep the achilles warmer so it wouldn't get sore.

The SiliposŪ Soft Sock is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot.
