Yesterday’s post on my FOMO diagnosis made me realize once again that bloggies really get me…you are all completely crazy too. In that vein, I wouldn’t want you to miss out on having the best gear for your summer training!
After my last running sock review post, I was notified that I was missing a few things. Not the random sock that never has a mate kind of missing, but the “HEY I love brand X and you totally skipped them”. Far be it from me to deprive you of fully knowing all of your running sock options to create the most blissful environment for your feet.
INJINI TOE SOCKS
My great friend Kim has sworn by toe socks for years, yes even long before Vibrams became the newest and greatest. Kim was on a quest to run a marathon in all 50 states at the time and swore they prevented blisters.
It turns out they create a HUGE variety of socks from performance to yoga, crew to compression. I decided with your feedback to give them a go and I did like them. It felt a little weird at first, but I can really see how with marathons it would help with blisters!!
I live in Miami, so when someone said “You have to try Smartwool” I balked at the idea. Turns out they are cushy and not extra warm as expected…I had to do some investigating on the SmartWool website to figure out just how this could be. It turns out wool is far more versatile than I realized and it does an amazing job of wicking the sweat away from your body which helps to regulate temperature.
If you are in the mood to revamp your sock drawer, I have found some of the best prices at SocksAppeal.com. Where I have rarely seen many of these socks in stores for less than $25 or on sale ever…well they have them on sale!. For example my perennial favorite DryMax socks are $5 less than normal!
