About this deal

Comfortable and cushioned, with ventilation zones for breathability, achilles tendon protection and inner layers to wick sweat away from your feet. And so far, we’ve had zero irritation running on East Coast boardwalks and gravel trails under baking July sun. Darn Tough uses a high stitch count for the Run Ultra-Light, so it’s velvety soft against your foot and wraps the arch with just enough compression for a secure fit and a smidge of extra support. I have a purple and green pair of Darn Tough socks that I’ve been wearing for almost three years, and they’re still as cushy as they were on the first run,” said one tester. I've been running since lockdown and have participated in a few ultramarathon events - 50k and 100k in the distance.

My favorite thing about this sock is how it makes the fit of every running shoe feel a little more locked in. While there aren’t any signs of wear on the heels or toes, there’s a small rip on the inside of the ankle. A seamless toe box minimises chafe and while they're not cushioned, they do have 'NanoGLIDE' tech, which reduces abrasions and the chance of blisters. But when compared to wool socks we’ve tested, it doesn’t perform as well in terms of durability and odor control. These use a combination of mohair and Balega’s own moisture-wicking materials to create a plush yet durable option.Yes, the running poles were helping with addition points of contact when the conditions were really challenging, but I had a lot of confidence in the shoes which is a definite positive result for them. To make sure you have the right size, make sure that the heel portion of the socks perfectly lands on your heel without stretching.

Natty” is not a word you hear a lot these days, but it is the right word for these socks, which come in a range of diamond designs. We are experiencing a high volume of traffic at the moment, please bear with us whilst we load your page.The toe section is linked seamlessly to the rest of the sock so there are no raised parts that could rub, and although the material used is thicker than on many other running socks I’ve tested, it still breathes well and dries quickly. Together, those two aspects dialed in fit and comfort with no baggy toes or irritating seams, but the material itself was always really slippery inside a shoe. The socks are well padded around the toes and heel, with flat seam finishes helping to ensure that there is no chafing and a midfoot band holding them in position, which also helps reduce the risk of rubbing.

That makes it a bit pricier, but we think it’s worth it for the improved durability, funk-fighting prowess, and buttery softness on foot. In addition to gathering detailed on-foot impressions, we used a vertical moisture-wicking test to objectively assess how well each sock handled sweat and moisture. One is Infiknit, a winning pun that points to the durability of the socks (Stance offers a lifetime guarantee on the products that have it).Luckily, we have a huge selection of running socks for you to browse, helping ensure you don't suffer with blisters or any other foot issues while running. Higher State offers terrific value across its range of running gear (you can generally ignore the RRP, because I’ve never seen its gear not reduced on the Sports Shoes site), and that’s certainly the case with these socks. The thickness of a running sock can do two things: make each step feel a little softer and take up some of the extra room within a shoe. He is also the chief tester for fitness trackers and running watches, treadmills and exercise bikes, and workout headphones.
