Our Favorite Running Socks

Socks are a commonly overlooked piece equipment for running. When considering investing in a quality pair of socks, consider these common issues. Most importantly, comfort. Socks should provide compression and cushioning, and be both light and comfortable. Also, socks should be at least somewhat odor resistant. Finally, if you'd prefer not to have toe-holes a few weeks in, invest in a durable pair. Find the Six Minute Mile recommendations for this criteria here.
