I rarely review products. But one thing is for sure about my reviews: I will never write a review for anything I did NOT personally try myself.
Running socks are some of the most important gear for runners, especially as the mileage increases. Having the wrong socks can lead to blisters which can be not only painful but can stop a run or even a race. For short runs, five or less miles, it isn’t that important. I can get away lesser brands, but for any runs six miles or more, I must have one of two brands.
The two sock brands I favor are: Feetures and Injinji. They are top of the line.
I’ve been a faithful Feetures wearer for years and just tried Injinji for the first time during my eight-mile run this morning. They’re not that easy to get on, and they feel weird at first, but once I walked around a little bit, they felt amazing! I never even thought about my feet until around mile 6 I remembered that I hadn’t thought about my feet!
I highly recommend Injinjis for your next long run! Also Feetures are great socks as well.
I got my last long run before my half marathon next Saturday finished this morning. Just a couple short runs and gym workouts this week and I’ll be as ready as ever!
Keep Moving Forward!
