Running-specific socks might come with an elevated price tag compared with your run-of-the-mill cotton varieties, but they’re well worth the investment. Using breathable, man-made fabrics, such as Tactel, Lycra and X-Static, or natural wool-blends, they’re loaded with technology to keep your feet cool and dry, however far you plan to run or however soggy the terrain underfoot. Most models boast anti-odour properties, moisture-managing capabilities, and temperature regulation too.What’s more, their customised, snug fit – combined in some models with a dual-layer construction (meaning fabric rubs on fabric, not your skin) – minimises friction between your foot and your shoe, reducing your chances of developing painful blisters.
