    Wow, I didn’t realize that there were so many different types of running socks ! When it comes to running shoes there are particular shoes for particular runners and I’m actually thinking more along the lines of amateur runners, and heavy runners in particular. Could you recommend a sock which heavier runners could/should wear. Maybe one with an extra cushioning?! Heavier folk need as much cushioning as they can get both from their shoe and from their socks.
    Thank you for all the valuable information you have given in your organised, well-structured site.

      Thank you, Roy.

      Yes, I think that people had to try one pair of this socks and
      then it doesn’t go back. Like I say
      sometimes, you need to look and the whole picture!

      I can recommend the type of socks you are asking in your comment. Have a look at the Balega
      socks you can see here:


        The toe and heel are reinforced. The mesh construction creates ventilation and it has plush cushioning at the sole for comfort. It comes in a huge variety of different colors to suit every runner’s taste and a good range of sizes for men and women.

    I will never forget the first time I tried a running sock vs. a regular sock! Before I used running socks, I would get blisters on my feet from the socks rubbing! The athletic sock fits so well and so snug that I don’t ever have issues!

    You are right, good socks are just as important as the right pair of running shoes!

      Thank you, Abby.

      Yes, I think it´s the point. People need to test once and after they had to try it, they don´t go back.

    Some of us have tried the sockless approach since their are seamless running shoes on the market that are mentioned to be worn without socks. That said, sweat is still the enamy of the shoe and skin.

      Hi, Carl and thank you.

      I think it is one of the good things that there are so many ways to get both a comfortable feeling and performance when you run today. On the same time, it is crucial to know what you should avoid and why.

      For example, I have stress that, in this site, that you should not use cotton socks when you run. Running socks and running shoes are a combo. But. Running barefoot is a fascinating idea and great for the people who like it. But you need to have the right shoes for it. For example, the shoes in this article could be useful for running without socks.

      And like you say, sweat is not good for shoes and skins.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
