Sweet Feet

Everyone has their favorites, right?  Well, when I pull open the sock drawer to dress for my run, my hand immediately reaches for my Fitsok socks.  I'm hard on my feet - running them 40 miles a week lately.  I've never lost a toenail and have had very minimal blisters (just a couple between my toes during a long hot summer run).  The least I can do is fit them with some sweet socks!



I quickly fell in love with Fitsok socks from 'first run'.  The comfortable fabric was the first thing I noticed.  The Fitsok CF2 are made of Shadow Yarn (78% hydrotec polyester, 20% nylon and 2% spandex), which transports moisture and heat from areas of highest to lowest concentration for a comfortable, thermally balanced sock.  Microban®, an antimicrobial product, fights the growth of odor causing bacteria to keep socks cleaner and fresher.

Along the bottom of the sock are FLOWTEK channels that promotes airflow on all sides of the foot.  The heel of the Fitsok CF2 sock is engineered to reinforce the shape of your heel and reduce discomfort and stabilize ankle support (Yes please!).  The top arch of the foot has a supportive fit to help alleviate foot fatigue.  The toe has a contoured fit to eliminate bunching and irritation at the end of the foot.  The entire sock provides a light cushion to prevent blisters.

Last week, my hubby asked me to pick him up his 'favorite run socks'... $15 a pair!  Um-yeah, I don't pay that for socks.  Instead I bought him a 3 pack of Fitsok socks (typical retail is 3 pair for $17) and asked him to give them a shot.

He instantly liked the feel of Fitsok socks, even before taking them out of the package. While soft, he liked how thin the socks felt.  Hubby then laced up his running shoes, played Facebook games for the next two hours and went for a run.  A man of many words, his final diagnosis was, "Yup, I like 'em."  In other words, keep buying me Fitsok.

You can find Fitsok socks in most athletic stores, as well as online at Amazon or in the Fitsok Shop. I highly recommend them, knowing that you won't be disappointed.  Fitsok has also generously donated two prize packages to the Jelly Bean virtual race.  (What?! You don't know what the Jelly Bean is yet?  Head over and get signed up here.)

  2. You had me at ankle support! My ankles have been a little off lately and then I twisted my ankle...not running just standing (I am not a girl made of grace that is for sure) so I will be buying some of these today!

  7. I'll keep those in mind next time I need socks because my favorites are in the $12 a pair range so something great and a bit cheaper is a winner!

  11. I have a pair of fit socks I really like. I definitely need to invest more in socks, most of the time I just wear crappy cotton cheap socks from old navy and then I wonder why I get so many blisters!
