    I never thought I would learn so much about a sock in one review. I have not really seen too many products like this out on the market hopefully this ones legit. How would these compare to the soles you would insert inside your shoes? Do they offer a similar experience or greatly differ?

      Thank you, Vlad.

      Yes, for sure it´s legit and for most people highly recommended. Some types of people need to see the disadvantages because there are 1-2 things which not all people like. But for most people, it´s an excellent product.

      About the soles, you insert inside the shoes. It depends. Before I used the soles, in the shoes. With the idea to have it softer for the legs when I run. But it can be reduced and even prevented with the additional cushions. But I recommended getting advise from your doctor or shoes expert about it because the idea behind soles can be because of you, for example, use your leg in a special way when you run, and the thinking behind the sole can be because of that, help you to use the foot effectively.

    Moisture repellant, wow! 

    I run a lot and in different tracks so I cannot avoid coming across water or mud as it rains a lot this time of the year where I live. Love the fact that the socks have cushions at bruise-prone areas especially at the Achilles and metatarsal part of the heel, it’s almost like the perfect socks I’ve ever come across. How long do you think the socks can last before wearing out?

      Hello, Riaz Shah, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      It is great to hear about the benefit of the article.

      About how long they last are always tricky to say because it comes so many factors in it like shoes, treatment, etc. But I would say at least 200 miles.

    Though I’ve not really been a great enthusiast of paying attention to my socks but then reading much about this thirty48 running socks really got me interested about it. I love the features you list especially it’s coolmax feature. Thats great. Though the disadvantages does shows its still a normal socks but then, the advantages outweighs the disadvantages well. Thanks for the post

    I enjoyed the review of the thirty48 running socks. Running can be quite uncomfortable with just regular socks that trap heat and have almost no air flow. Even though the socks do run a little higher in price, it is worth the added support. The unisex feature is a nice added touch along with the added cushion support to the heels. My heels are often taking all the heat when I run or even just stand for a long time.

      If it is no airflow in the socks, men should not run in it at all. It must number one to be comfortable.

    Hi

    Thanks for the really informative article, I’ve done a few half and full marathons in my time and I would have loved to have had a product like these Thirty48 socks. People tend to overlook just how much your feet are going through when you run, keeping them dry and cool really helps to stop blisters and hotspots so that those annoying little issues don’t get in the way of your training. 

    Are these socks suitable for hiking as well or would you recommend a different sock?

      You can use these socks for hiking. But personally, you would prefer to use the Rockay Accelerate Anti-Blister Running Socks. You can read about it here.

    I had the opportunity to try many different types of socks as an endurance athlete with 11 Ironman triathlons, over 30 marathons, and more than 100 10km races completed in my career.

    I found that the less sock you wore the better. One small mistake in picking out the right sock and a blister will appear out of nowhere in a race you trained all year for.  It happened to me several times over the years.

    I actually had my very best ironman triathlons when I did the marathon with no socks at all. Late in my career, I began wearing  Defeet socks which are designed much like the  thirty48. They are also low cut and have a type of cool mesh technology.

    If I were still competing, I would most likely have to find a different sock as my circulation these days is not so great and I would most likely find the Defeet socks too tight around the ankle.

      Hello, Ray, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Luckily we are different, and there are not always the same for all.

      You don’t have to wear running socks if your running shoe is engineered to support your foot very snugly and will wick away moisture, but it’s not recommended.

      For you running without running socks seems to fit you well and it is excellent you find that out. When I read your comment, I have the feeling that barefoot running shoes would maybe provide you well.

      But for most runners, I am included because I always had a problem to run without it, it is crucial to run with running socks. But I agree with you that it is vital to find out the right socks for yourself. Testing few is a great way to do it.

      Socks protect your feet from friction, and ultimately, provide your foot with a second skin.

      Running is very hard on your feet, and runners commonly suffer from blisters, heat spots, callous, and damage to their toenails. When moisture is trapped in your feet, or when your socks do not wick away moisture effectively, your skin will be more susceptible to chafing and developing fungal infections.

      I wrote an article about why you should, for most runners, always use running socks. You can see it here if you want.

      I wrote an article about it which you can see here.

    Hi, Johann.
    Thanks for the detailed review on Thirty48 Running Socks, giving complete information on Coolmax fabric and Moisture wicking among other advantages. I think I can recommend it to my daughter who is a badminton player and suffers from shoe smell even after adopting all the precautions given on the net.
    The Cons can be compromised as compared to the advantages of these socks as it seems to be really comfortable with padded support.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur

    hello there!!!
    It is glad to see such kind of articles about man wearings that is useful to know. we suffuer from meny problems while walking or running or when we need to walk hurry to reach our destinations by wearing shoes. Then a sock is very much helpful. If the sock also give our feet protection, it becomes more benificial. Thank you to let us know about such benigicial things through this article. But it seems quote a bit uncomfortable as it contains only 27% cotton. However it acts as cushion which is more important and that makes this sock valuable.

      Actually, you should have a little cotton in your running socks as possible. So it is a big pro that it is not more.

      This is because cotton socks do not offer any kind of moisture control. Cotton actually absorbs moisture and keeps it directly retained around your feet.

      That is why when you run in cotton socks; you will most probably end up with wet, soggy and sweaty feet. Furthermore, the friction of running and moisture can contribute to frustrating blisters.

      I wrote an article about it which you can see here.

    I have forbidden my speech to say about this socks. It is so comfortable! I never seen socks like it. The socks have anti-bacterial and ultra dry section which is very important for a runner. You know, it is so fitting and it has no bad smell after using more than a week.
