Do you wear socks on a run or not?
I dont coz I feel better in bare feet and like to feel the sweat in em.
what about you? What are your reasons?
I don't where socks.
I do wear 'em, though, cos else all that sweat washing around has potential for bad blisters. And can create horrendous shoes smell.
It's a bit off subject but I'm a regular at Glastonbury and in 1997 the mud was so bad that most peoples footwear disintegrated.
Lot's of people resorted to taping bin bags around there feet but I just went bare foot all weekend and found it a very liberating experience.
It's a massive site and I probably did at least 20 miles over the weekend in bare feet.
of course I do, I'm a delicate female!
many many years ago I left a pair of orienteering shoes at a control point on the course and finished the rest of it in my socks, having tried for weeks to soften up those shoes without any luck. They had blistered my heels so badly that every morning when I got out of bed the cuts split open again and started bleeding! After the event the organisers tried to return those shoes to me - I told them to bin them.
Can't do without socks in trainers but I used to run bare feet when I still lived in Finland (only in the summer of course ).
No broken glass or anything over there, just miles and miles of clean pine forests.
blimey can i be the only one?
my feet swead like an old pig like the rest of me. I must be thick skinned-lol
Are you still running with your sandals on Hoose?
Socks reduce friction and absorb sweat. Without socks the sweat goes into the shoe and they'll stink in no time. Vinegar shoes
some shoes designed for barefoot running like the vibram five fingers can be worn without socks but they're a form fit and you can wash them.
You've got to wear the right socks too Hoose.
Those knee length woolly ones, would probably suit you
