    Thank you for this very informative post! It’s funny to think about the impact of socks because nobody would expect socks to play such a big role in our running! But I noticed that when I wear super thin cotton socks, I will not have an enjoyable experience! I appreciate your recommendation of the best kinds of socks for the best running experience. I’ll check it out 🙂

      Thank you, Derek.

      The point with cotton socks is that it does not offer any kind of moisture control. Cotton actually absorbs moisture and keeps it directly retained around your feet. If you think about it, many people buy expensive and high-quality shoes (and shoes are very important) but next to their skin is the socks. And like shoes, it´s very important to have right socks for the same reason and you choose shoes and running clothes. The reason about feeling comfortable and maximax the effort of the running.

    Never did I know there are so many details about socks and also how important they are especially for someone like me that likes to workout and jog. My feet always tend to be smelly after a workout, is that due to the fact that I am wearing the wrong socks and what would you prefer for me then?

      Thank you, Mornay for your important comment.

      Yes, it´s quite possible that the smell problem, which a lot of runners have, can be solved with using particular running socks. Give this socks, for example, a try and see if you are in the same smelling problem: https://sportssend.com/fitshit

    Hi Johann,

    I am probably like many joggers, or ex-jogger now not even thinking about socks. Thank you for explaining the benefits of wearing the proper supportive socks, one problem I cannot wear wool, makes me itch. I take it my very cheap white sports socks were not very supportive, I have to wear ankle socks, never heard of crew socks.
    A very enlightning and informotive post, which will help many runners.

    Thank you,
    John

      Thank you, John, for your nice words.

       
      I know your itch problem for wool. I have the same even so I have found out that matter from which country it comes from. Australian wool seems to be good for me, Icelandic wool for others (maybe is this the reason: http://www.icelandinformationt… ) But here we have the benefit of the price of runnings socks which are normally not so much, at least comparing with shoes for example. So you can dry which material is best for you. I recommend you start with trying synthetic fibres like nylon and acrylic.
