The Socks: Injinji Lightweight No-show Socks
Why we like em: They prevent blisters
Injinji pronounced (in-gin-gee), has taken a different approach to athletic socks. They believe that toe socks not only keep your feet cool dry & blister free but also promote better posture and balance. We tried them out and found them to be very comfortable. They feel different at first, but after a while they feel really good.
The Socks: Stance Socks – All of them
Why we like em: They’re way cooler than solid color socks.
If you’re looking for great-looking, well-made & comfortable socks, we suggest that you try STANCE socks. They feature an elastic arch support to keep the socks snug and comfortable on your feet plus a deep heel pocket to keep the socks in place and prevent twisting. Some styles come in a 3-pack allowing you to mix and match depending on your mood.
The Socks: Smartwool Running PhD Light Socks
Why we like em: They’re padded in all the right places
Let’s face it, your running socks are just as important as your running sneakers. Our favorite running sock is the Smartwool PhD Running Light Micro socks. The socks feature cushioning on the bottom half of the sock to absorb shock while running and a padded achilies tab that keeps your foot snug inside the sneaker. The top of the sock is ventilated with mesh to keep you cool, and most importantly dry. These socks are constructed of merino wool, nylon and elastic. Remember, merino wool will wick moisture and keep your foot dry and blister free and hopefully fast.
The Socks: Wigwam Ironman Thunder Pro
Why we like em: They’re constructed of odor-fighting material and they’re made int he USA.
Let’s face it, some of us prefer a white sock. If you fall into this boat we recommend the Wigwam Ironman Thunder Pro. It’s constructed of Dri-release to keep your feet dry, stretch nylon for fit and X20 acrylic to fight off odor. This sock has a cushioned sole and the instep is made of breathable mesh. It’s the opposite of the a plain white sock.
