Running Socks

Running Socks

Running socks are as important to a runner's performance as a decent pair of running shoes. Choosing the wrong pair of socks may result in an uncomfortable run, with sweaty feet leading to a difficult experience.

You should give as much thought to choosing your running socks as you do your running shoes. Why? Well, for a number of reasons, not least the fact that they can help prevent injuries.

Running Sock technology has come a long way in the last couple of years, with a number of exciting developments, but many runners still pick up a three-pack of poor quality cotton socks over a decent pair and costing a fraction of the cost of running shoes, and then wonder why their feet are still getting damaged.

The principal development that started the change process was that of blister-resistant technology. Although by no means guaranteed to prevent blisters, the use of two layers of fabric fundamentally changed the way some runners perceived the sock market.

The idea was that double layers would absorb friction, whilst at the same time wicking away moisture, so dramatically reducing the cause of blisters. With the constant improvement in the fabrics, this has been enhanced over time with resultant improvements in performance. Many runners would not consider running long distance events in anything else.

Cushioning is another improvement in modern socks, and is often the main reason why some runners invest more in a pair of running socks than others. The level of padding can differ by brand, but the principle is the same in all of them; they give the runner more protection in those areas of the foot that take the most pounding.

In addition to the positive effects of good cushioning, some have an additional thread woven into the running sock from top to bottom, which operates like a bandage to protect the joints. Secondly there is the use of pressure sensors. These prevent deviation from natural motions, so common towards the end of a run and the cause of so many injuries.
