Excellent Product for Runners
on May 26, 2013
I recently purchased these socks at the recommendation of an employee of my local athletic shoe store where I was getting fitted for new running shoes. I've recently crossed the 10K mark in my marathon training program and have experienced what runners inevitably face at some point: blisters. In the matter of a week, I seemed to be getting blisters on my toes every time I ran (logging 40+ miles a week). Needless to say, Band Aids did to little to provide relief at that point.
These socks were the perfect solution. The material is comparable to other athletic socks in terms of eliminating moisture and keeping your feet breathable. They are a little tricky to get on your toes just right, but you eventually get the hang out it.
The only drawback is probably specific to these lightweight versions - as mentioned in a previous post, I'm not sure how durable they will be. They are decidedly made out of thin material, so we'll see how long they last.
Hopefully they last for awhile because, otherwise, they're a really great product for runners at all stages.
UPDATE: 150 miles later and these are still holding up!
