Socks, one thing all runners need, yet sometimes we neglect. My issue has always been finding something that fits, a lot of leading brands don’t go over size 10/11. For a few years I’ve been supported by SockMine, for most runs I’ve used their Griplock Anklet, you can read my review here. However I wanted something more lightweight for racing, so they sent me two pairs of their lightweight socks, nicknamed Grippy.
The socks come either in high vis yellow,orange and pink. Both are very vibrant colours and while won’t be everyone’s cup of tea as I know runners prefer black or white. I’ve raced in both colours and even worn odd pairs. This season I’ve preferred the yellow version, when you are racing you need to have faith in the gear you are using will do their job. The socks were perfect. Thanks to their unique make up which combines comfort with their GripLock™ technology. The sock fit to the skin and stops movement of my feet. As you know movement can cause blisters and I can say I’ve not had a blister ever since I started wearing Sockmine socks.
These socks use what they call COOLMAX fibre which keeps moisture away and keeps the feet cool and dry which is another massive plus. They wash up great every time and my orange pair I use for parkruns I’ve had for a few months and they are still as good as new.
What I like is they have sizes to fit all feet and at only £12 they are a decent price. You need to grab these online. If you are looking for the perfect race day sock then I can hand on my heart say these are the best I’ve worn. I have every confidence in them I will continue to use them in my upcoming track and short road races.
