    My biggest issue is them being the right length to not look dorky but also not being a barrier between back of foot/ankle and the shoe.

    i had an issue my last 1/2 marathon with my feet sliding in my shoes so I wish I would have had some anti friction socks.

    The biggest problem I have had is constantly getting holes. Also, sometimes my sock snags my toenail and I don’t even have long toe nails! Then it bleeds 🙁

    The biggest issue I have had with socks is that they slide down too far in the back and cause blisters from my ankle rubbing the shoe. GRR!

  5. Becca @ Peace, Love & Bagels says

    I can’t seem to avoid blisters if I don’t use some type of blister blocker. After the Akron marathon I had a blister the size of texas on my arch, and I even stopped at a med tent to get it wrapped. Awful!

    I follow you via my google reader. I HATE the tiny no-show socks! They are so popular, I don’t know why. What’s wrong with covering your ankles and NOT having your socks ride down the back of your foot??!!

    I have a pair of pink socks (of course) that look cute, but always slide down during longer runs. I hate that.

  8. Carrie says

    My problem is finding a good sock that is the appropriate weight and one that will last.

  9. Katie @ Healthy Heddleston says

    Oh and my issue is with socks — unless I’m working out I HATE wearing socks. So my workout socks have to be awesome or I’m constantly thinking about them!

    My biggest issue with socks has been them slipping in back and getting rubbed on my lower ankle. I’ve def started buying them a tad taller.

    Luckily, my experiences haven’t been too terrible, but I often get blisters on long runs, especially when it’s really hot out.
