It doesn’t matter if you have just started doing couch to 5k or if you’re ready for the London marathon, it’s important to have the right gear to protect your feet. Everyone knows it's important to find running shoes that feel good, but socks are often overlooked. However, a good pair of socks will protect your feet and help you crush your PB..So what should you be looking for when trying to find the right socks?
A sweaty sock isn’t just smelly, it’s uncomfortable and can lead to blisters. That’s why, just like with your running shoes and your top, your socks need to be breathable to ensure that your feet are kept dry as you run.
When you run your feet are exposed to much harsher impacts than during everyday activities. This means that it is important to not just wear everyday socks. Additional padding in areas such as the heel, arch and toes will help your feet to not feel the strain as you clock up the miles.
The seams on a sock are an area that could chafe, leading to discomfort. Seamless socks remove this issue entirely!
Ok this one might not be as important but hear us out... If you look good, you feel good, which means you’re more likely to power through when times get tough on a run. Choose socks with a design that make you feel confident to run in.
Our running socks here at STRIDIES were specially designed for maximum comfort when running. Seam3Toe technology, breathable fabric, Comfit Arch and reinforced heel and toe areas make them perfect for you to wear when you run. Not only that, but whenever we sell a pair of socks we donate a pair to homeless shelters across the UK, meaning that buying socks from us does not only help you set a new personal best, but it helps those in need too!
