Wright Socks Review and Giveaway!


Okay I'll admit it.   I'm new to running.   I am still considered a newbie by most and I'm okay with that.   I have learned so much in my short 6 months of running and still have so much more to learn.   That being said, I have learned a thing or two about socks.   Most importantly, they are important when it comes to running.   For the longest time I was wearing any sock to run in.   El Cheapo from Walmart was just fine for me.  My feet would get hot and sweaty and gross but I thought that was normal. 

Enter WrightSock.   I was sent a few different pairs to try.   I am a changed woman.   I love these socks so much that I actually will save them to run in them more than once.   Gross maybe, but my feet don't really get that sweaty in these and it's so cold out to help out in that area that I'm able to get away with it. 



One more example of how much I love these socks.   The night before the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot I had to work and didn't lay out an outfit to wear the next morning.   At 6:00 AM I was up and ready except I couldn't find any matching pairs of my WrightSocks.   I sat in my dark room for 10 minutes digging through the clean laundry basket trying to find a pair.   Finally I did and I was off to the Turkey Trot in my WrightSocks

A little bit of info from their website to give you the technical talk on these awesome socks.

1. Moisture Management: Dri-WRIGHT™ inner layer wicks moisture off the skin better than any other fabric. The Result... your feet stay dry.
2. Temperature Regulation: Staying dry means staying cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The Result... your feet are more comfortable.
3. Friction Reduction: Interaction between the inner and outer sock layers absorbs friction that is normally transferred to the skin. The Result... skin shear is eliminated.
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.

1. Patented 3rd attachment keeps socks aligned.

2. The outer layer is constructed of fibers specific to the activity.

3. The inner layer is always a smooth, undyed, hydrophobic surface against the foot. PATENTED!

4. Friction and shearing forces, created by rigorous activity, are absorbed by the interaction between the inner and outer layers of the sock instead of being passed on to the outer layers of the skin. The result is less blistering.

5. Color coded toe seams for easy size matching.
