    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!
