I was recently sent some samples to try out for a WRIGHTSOCK review. 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.”
“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. How can you eliminate this problem? WRIGHTSOCK Double Layer Socks are the answer! WRIGHTSOCK Double Layer construction coupled with the most technically advanced fibers, delivers the blister protection that you need. WRIGHTSOCK Double Layer provides year round comfort and performance with no blisters – guaranteed.” – source
Fit/Comfort: During my WRIGHTSOCK review I found the socks fit me well. Not too loose, not too tight. Some pairs have a bit of support on the bottom arch. The feel was comfortable, although I have no evidence that arch support played any role in my running performance.
Function: I have been wearing the socks on my most recent four to five mile runs and have had no blisters. I have had no chafing either. WRIGHTSOCK socks average about $8 to $10 per pair which is very reasonable in price compared to other running socks I have come across. I have washed the socks several times and have not had any holes appear in them or snags.
Style: During my WRIGHTSOCK review I learned the socks are available in a variety of styles. Considering it’s summer right now, my preference has been for the lower cut socks. Although I’m sure some of the thicker socks will be great during winter.
