Just curious... what kind of socks do you guys wear for races?? I need some new ones!!
Thorlo! I like plush socks best, these are my favourites
Personally, I'm not super picky about socks, so I buy whatever moisture-wicking socks are cheap at Kohls. My one requirement is that they have the heel tab, which I think helps with blisters (that may be a placebo effect, though). I do have a pair of Feetures merino wool socks that I love for winter runs and races, and I'm probably going to pick up another pair of those soon. So if I had to recommend a brand, I'd probably say Feetures ... but I'm really not picky.
I am picky about socks: I only run in WrightSocks. Lo quarters for spring-summer-fall, and crew for winter.
Most of my casual socks are also WrightSocks.
The idea is that the 2 layers rub against each other rather than your foot to prevent blisters. So far, so good!
I have noticed they don't seem to last as long as they used to.
Under armour socks. Low cut. Same ones I train in and wear to work.
Balega Hidden Comfort. Super padded and excellent at moisture wicking.
I picked up some Balega Enduros at my local sporting goods store a while back, and fell in love with them. I recently bought two more pair because I'd flattened all the padding out of the first pair.
I have no basis for comparison to other running socks, I just really like my Enduros.
I’m very picky about socks because I hate them in general. I wear a variety of Balega, Feetures and Pro Compression.
Asics Kayano Short Tab
Wigwam. The seam is on the outside so no more toe blisters and I could stop wearing my socks inside out
Toe socks! Love them!
Favorite at the moment Swiftwick Pursuit. Made of merino wool. Love them.
Smartwool merino socks
I only run in Injinji socks. I love them! They're the only socks that keep me blister-free!
I either wear Wrightsocks or Feetures.
Balega, Zensah, Feetures & Injini is what I have. I prefer toe seam free socks with a bit of compression in them.
I was introduced to Feetures several years ago and haven't looked back. I love the compression.
I buy whatever running socks are on sale on Amazon. I really like these Asics and bought a few 3 packs of them.
Balega or feetures!
