The Best Socks on Earth

October 14, 2016 at 7:30 PM

Distance running requires a lot of time and a lot of patience. But above all, it requires really nice socks. I'll be running my fourth marathon in November, so I've spent a lot of time testing out comfortable pairs of socks. And there are no socks on this earth better than the Smartwool PhD Run Light Socks. They aren't cheap, but they feel like cloudy marshmallows on your toes, and deliver the additional benefit of keeping your feet cool and dry! If you're looking for a slightly lower price point, I also recommend Balega running socks. These brightly colored socks make a fashion statement while keeping your feet happy and cushioned! And you don't need to run 26.2 miles to enjoy the heck out of these socks - I wear mine to the gym and under my boots all winter long. Run (or walk, or drive) on over to Medved or Fleet Feet to buy yourself a pair! -Laura Lintz, Slow and Steady Librarian
