Recent Running Sock Reviews

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 5 of 5 stars Outdoors socks made in dyneema - which according to wiki is 8-15 times stronger than steel. Protects the feet from stings and cuts, while at the same time keeping them warm. I love running and doing outdoors stuff in these. They are very light (perhaps 50 grams each?) and versatile. I use them for running and forest walking, climbing etc now, but can see many other uses for them. For example next time I go sea kayaking I will bring them instead of ordinary shoes or sandals, as they dry quickly… Full review

Drymax Maximum Protection Trail Running Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars Superb, all I can say. Bought three pair from the local sports shop and got one pair free. They are cool in winter and toes tingle slightly but no blisters, I wear them all day, approx 9 hours in running shoes. Feet don't smell. They wear very well with no sign of any wear after 10 months. I average approx 50km a week walking and 35km per week running—totals approx 4,000km for the year, testimony to itself. Comfy in running shoes in all weather conditions. Fit: Fit as noted on packaging. Comfort: Extremely… Full review

Darn Tough Men's Vertex 1/4 Sock Ultra-Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars I don't know how Darn Tough does it, but I have put over 500 miles on a single pair of Vertex Running Socks, and they still look and feel great! It defies explanation. Quick—Which of these two socks was run in once and which was run in 550 miles? It's a trick question. It's the same sock. The BOTTOM picture was taken on Christmas Day, after a three-mile run. The upper picture follows 550 miles of running over the last five months (including one full marathon and one half marathon). DT's reputation… Full review

Darn Tough Men's Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars A lifetime replacement guarantee says it all. A very soft, warm Merino wool sock with extra cushion underfoot. Darn Tough socks all come with a no questions asked lifetime guarantee, and that tells you all you need to know about the quality of their socks. In my neverending quest for the ultimate hiking sock, I like to test socks that are designed for other sports, such as running and biking. Being a fan of trail runners and low rise hiking boots I did all my testing of these Darn Tough Merino wool… Full review

Darn Tough Coolmax Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-Light

rated 5 of 5 stars Seamless construction helps prevent blisters. Coolmax polyester keeps your feet cool. Lifetime guarantee. Recently I hiked the Tour of Mont Blanc, a classic 100-mile hut-to-hut trail that runs through France, Italy, and Switzerland as it winds its way around Mont Blanc. Knowing I would probably encounter rain at some point I left my normal trail runners home and took a pair of Ahnu lowrise waterproof boots. Picking the correct socks to match meant trying the boot on with a variety of socks. All would… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 3 of 5 stars Dyneema material rubberised socks that allow you to really feel the terrain under your feet. Minimises risk of cuts when wanting to go barefoot. The FYF (Free Your Feet) is a great pair of socks for those into water sports or those that want to go barefoot. Made out of Dyneema fibre that has tensile strength 15 times greater than steel it protects your feet from any type of cut (e.g. selfish, glass), friction injury (blisters from rough terrain) or scratches (from twigs and stones). However, it… Full review

Darn Tough Merino No-Show Sock Mesh

rated 5 of 5 stars I really like it, keeps clean itself, gets dry super fast. I was looking for lifetime products and one friend recommended to me this brand and its benefits. Then I made my research and found it. The size was perfect. Because fit perfect, I really like the feeling in my feet. I don't need to wash it always because if I let it "dry" clean itself it doesn't matter if was wet or not, and always is ready for use again. Are very comfortable, are really well made it, you can feel that in your feet! Full review

Bridgedale Men's Bamboo Lo

rated 5 of 5 stars This sock is comfortable and regulates temperature for all day comfort. Durable and does not retain odor. One of my most favorite pairs of socks. I have several pair and am please with how durable they have been over the years. The fabric is soft and does not retain odor like similar all synthetic socks do. Best for everyday wear and with hiking boots in all types of temperatures and weather. My feet stay warm but not too warm and the sock has great cushion when hiking all day with a pack. They… Full review

Injinji Performance Micro Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars After the weirdness wears off they are great. I bought shoes on clearance and they have issues with most socks; possibly why they were on clearance.  The seam across the toe on my running socks dig into my feet and it hurts.  The Injinji toe socks fixed this and made mediocre shoes into pretty darn good shoes.  I had resigned myself to just deal with the shoes hurting my feet till I received a free pair of Injinji socks recently from a major outdoor catalog company. I had no idea if they would… Full review
