Our customer service supervisor, Kristin, took a moment to share some thoughts about her favorite running socks:
A few years ago, I wasn’t too particular about socks. If they covered my feet and didn’t have holes, they were a go. Big perk was finding cute colors and on sale at a discount store. But things change, people change, and change can be good. As a perk to working Running Warehouse, I’ve now tried out my fair share of running socks and will now attest to the impact they have on a run. I’ve discovered that socks that don’t bunch up, slip down, trap sweat, or develop holes make going for a run that much better. The best socks are those you don’t notice – pulling your mind away from your happy place or distract from meaningful conversation with a running buddy while on the move.
With so many great sock options available, it could seem impossible to have a favorite. None the less, I have found the Balega Ultra Light No Show Socks are nothing short of the perfect sock companion for my runs. The reasons are plentiful, but I’ll divulge just a few.
Supreme fit: They hug in the right spots, such as in the arch area. Amazing, glove-like comfort.
Zero slippage: Your heel is guaranteed to be padded. I’ve worn these socks in many different shoes and on runs of all distances, all without any slipping!
No bunching: The socks feel thin and seamless in a shoe, and still offer enough cushioning in the right places.
Lifespan: They withstand many miles on the trail or road without developing holes, so the investment goes a long way.
