Review: Feetures! Elite socks


by Annie Rice

You’ve got the performance leggings, your cupboard is over flowing with sweat wicking tops and you've spent a small fortune on shoes, but are running special socks really a necessary wardrobe addition? Feetures have taken the US market by storm and are about to hit the UK running scene so we got a sneak peek to put them through their paces to see what the fuss was all about.

I’ve never worn a sock quite like them and felt the benefits from the offset, here’s why:

An anatomical left and right foot design enhances the fit for maximum comfort and minimal risk of blister, I can verify that the fit felt instantly supportive and securely tight to my foot, yet also very light and natural.

High-density cushioning for extra protection in more vulnerable areas. Just walking around I was aware of an almost spongy quality.

Arch support, this USP is where the socks stand out from many others on the market, an extra level of structure allows you to feel more in tune with and aware of your foot. 

Extra features include moisture wicking fabrics to keep feet and socks dry and odour free.

On their test run, these both impressed and surprised me. The fit was the most notable factor as I was not used to feeling such support from a sock alone. Before I get too far ahead of myself, I'll save the final verdict once I've clocked a few more miles and a few washes, but the early signs are that these socks might become an essential part of my running kit.
