Personal choice. My OH also never wears socks, I always do because in spite of running my entire life, my feet still blister no matter what shoes I wear if I don't have socks on.
I do a bit of both. Long runs always wear socks. Sometimes run without to try to harden my feet up for triathlons.
depends on my shoes, my distance runs i always wear socks, but i often do trail running in Vibram Five Fingers which i dont wear any, and also my track spikes i dont wear any either.
I always wear socks as, like Bionic Ironwolf, I too get blisters if I don't I also quite like the feeling of that extra bit of support.
Every runner I know wears socks for running. Don't know any who don't. If you prefer none and aren't getting any blisters, great! I remember my first triathlon, laying out my kit in the transition area, and being soundly ridiculed for laying out socks with my trainers. The reaction I got, you'd have thought I had stabilisers on my bike or something!
Socks. I'd get serious blisters if I didn't. Just couldn't run without them. Ever.
I reckon I would definitely get blisters without socks. Unless I also ran without shoes, which I am not going to do!
Always always socks. Well, never tried without, but I think my feet would hurt!
