ASICS are known to produce quality running socks which not only perform well, but are also very affordable. They are about 1/3 the price of a pair of Nike professional running socks – that’s how inexpensive they are.
The ASICS Women’s Quick Lyte cushioning single tab running socks comes in different sizes and colors. They are sold in a pack of 3 and you should expect at least two different bright, fun colors within each package.
Each sock is made from fabric which comprises of 74 % Nylon, 22 % Polyester and 4 % Spandex.
Now, such material is good for running socks but it has a downside. The fabric attracts dirt, furs/hairs and lint as you will notice once you remove them from the dryer.
In terms of sizes, inside the package the socks come with a size chart to help you figure out which size fits.
However, there have been a number of issues regarding sock sizes sold by ASICS. Let’s say you wear size 7, it is recommended that you get a size 7 ½ or an 8 if you want the socks to fit.
This is another downside to using such fabric. However, these socks are super stretchy, meaning that even if you get a size 7 they will still fit, but you’re going to have to stretch them a bit just to get them on.
As for the design, these socks are lightweight and have protective cushioning around the pressure points, that is, toe and heel area.
This helps in preventing blisters and sore feet during and after the running session. In terms of sock height, they are low, no show sock otherwise referred to as ankle socks.
In addition, these socks have a breathable design, which means that there is good air circulation within the entire foot.
Moreover, they are built to absorb moisture and sweat during an intense running session thanks to their moisture wick design. This helps keep your foot comfortably dry and fresh even if you are running a marathon.
In contrast, these socks seem a bit too thin. This is a problem especially if your workout sessions are super intense.
Regardless, the protective cushioning around the toe and heel pressure points means that wear and tear is not as quick as what you’d experience with normal socks.
The ASICS Women’s Quick Lyte cushion single tab running socks share a number of similarities with the SoftBreath high performance running socks. These two sock brands also share a bit of differences especially in terms of price and material used.
In terms of fabric used to make the sock, the SoftBreath high performance running socks are made from 86 % cotton, 10 % polyester, 3 % spandex and 1 % elastic. This is different from the
74 % Nylon, 22 % Polyester and 4 % Spandex found on the ASICS Women’s Quick Lyte cushion single tab running socks.
The difference in material affects the price as well. Surprisingly, the sock made from cotton is cheaper than the one made without material.
However, the price difference is not too steep and choice between which socks to buy here will depend on personal preference.
The cheaper SoftBreath high performance sock also comes in more colors than the ASICS running socks.
You can choose from over 5 colors, that is, pink, white, royal blue, navy blue, gray and white. In contrast, color options on the ASICS are limited to just a few.
In terms of sock design, both socks have the same features to help you improve your running experience. Both pairs have a little lip which extends from the back end of the sock. This is designed to protect the Achilles from blistering.
Inside both these socks, there is additional lightweight cushioning especially on the pressure points, that is, heel and toe. This additional cushioning provides impact-absorption to reduce muscle soreness during and after running.
In addition, both sock brands have a moisture wick design which helps to reduce moisture content and sweat within the sock. In addition, both socks provide excellent breathability to ensure that your feet remain fresh and comfortably dry.
While it is hard to get very excited regarding a pair of running socks, the ASICS Women’s Quick Lyte Cushion Single Tab Running Socks are definitely a pair worth your consideration. They are comfortable, lightweight and offer effective moisture control.
In addition, they also come in a variety of bright and fun colors that will suit your wardrobe. The only thing to remember when purchasing these socks is to buy a size up, that is, buying socks for 7 ½ if you are a size 7.
An alternative would be to stick to your size but you are going to have to stretch them a bit before you put them on.
