Wrightsock is a sock company focusing on footwear for athletes, including runners. Their socks are made in the USA and vary in thickness and styles. Wrightsock is also known for their “anti-blister formula.” This is a full Wrightsock review.
I received some socks from the company to try out and will share my full product review. Wrightsocks features a double layer which is designed to reduce blisters while running. Continue reading to learn more about Wrightsock and if I would recommend them for running.
Here’s some information directly from the Wrightsock website about their products:
In competition, your feet are subjected to extreme stress. As your body heats up, your feet get wet, hot and chafed. The combination of moisture, heat and friction often leads to painful blisters and discomfort that keeps you from performing at your peak.

Wrightsock Double Layer construction coupled with the most technically advanced fibers, delivers the blister protection that you need.

Wrightsock Fit and Comfort
I tried out the Wrightsock SLT in a size small. I normally wear size 6 shoes. During my Wrightsock review I found the socks fit me well and some some ankle coverage to avoid having your running shoes rub around the lower ankle.
The fit was not too loose and also not too tight. Some pairs of Wrightsock have a bit of support on the bottom arch. You can see this in the photo below with the gray stitching sewn into the bottom of the sock along the arch.
The feel was comfortable, although I have no evidence that arch support played any role in my running performance. For me support in that area of the sock has not made a difference but it could depending on your footwear needs.
I have mostly worn the socks on my most recent four to five mile runs and have had no blisters. I have had no chafing either on my feet or while wearing the running socks.
In terms of cost, Wrightsock socks are very reasonable in price compared to other running socks I have seen on the market. I washed the socks several times and have not had any holes appear in them or snags. The socks are durable and long lasting.
Wrightsock Running Socks
During my Wrightsock review I learned the socks are available in a variety of styles. When I’m running in the summer, my preference has been for the lower cut socks.
Although I’m sure some of the thicker socks will be great during winter. Over the years Wrightsock has also expanded their runner socks line to include various cuts, styles and colors.
Wright Socks Review
During my Wrightsock review I learned about their size chart. Their adult size chart is above. I found the socks to fit true to size as me I wore a size small and my shoe size is a size 6.
If you have children, there is also a size chart for kids sizing on the Wrightsock website. Older children might fit best into the women’s sizing as their feet grow. It would be beneficial to check both charts and compare to your child’s shoe size.
Wrightsock is a good running sock option for runners looking for running socks. The double layer anti blister technology is interesting and the socks are well made and last through many washes. Runners can be very particular about their socks so it’s important to hear a review and research all running socks available on the market before making a decision on footwear.
