Sock recommendations anyone
I started running just over a year ago and, for most of that time, I've been using a pair of running socks I got in a discount supermarket. They were dirt cheap but much better than other more expensive branded running socks I've tried. I think the main reason I like them so much is that they are virtually seamless (i.e. without a noticeable seam on the inside of the sock at the toes like you get with most socks) and they don't bunch up or rub anywhere on the foot.
Unfortunately, I have only one pair of these and I can't find another. So, anyone know of anything similar or recommend a good running sock?
i own a load of different brands of running socks. After trying all sorts, I found that my feet cope best with double layer or "twin skin" socks. No blisters, no rubbing. So now i always buy twin skins, but don't pay too much bother to the brand. Hillys are quite good, i've got no complaints about them.
Each to their own. I get cheap things from primark or other places and have no problems - I simply tend not to get blisters. I'm more careful with my shorts because of private parts and inner-thigh friction. I guess it's trial and error.
Another vote for Hilly twin skins!
Drymax - really awesome for me, no blisters since (I couldn't get on with the two layer socks at all, fine for up to 14 miles or so then blisters with a vengeance).
Cheers for suggestions.
More Mile London from me.
More Mile San Diego are slightly cheaper, and also very good.
I like Injinji lightweight toe socks. No seams, no blisters.
I would go for Feetures socks anytime. A bit expensive at £14 a pair but well worth it for the comfort
X-Socks work for me. Had them in various forms. Expensive, but never had issues with blisters, etc.
I like Balega socks.
Another vote for X-Socks. Expensive, but never had anymore issues with my feet since usinge them. I have just ordered a couple of pairs of Drymax to try - as it seems we might not get a summer!
I absolutely love Aldi running socks and always stock up when they are in. Cheap and good.
I've got the Hilly Twin Skins and find I get friction with them and hot feet.
