What Are the Characteristics of Running Socks?

As the saying goes, every trade has its master, and so are socks. In different environments, we have certain requirements on the fabric, material, length, and other aspects of socks.

1. The material of running socks can release sweat

Don't wear 100 percent pure cotton socks while running. If your feet sweat during exercise, your socks will become wet. It can make your feet feel cold and sticky in winter and blister in summer. At the same time, it is hard to describe the misery when the feet are wet. It is recommended to choose best running socks for sweaty feet made of synthetic materials such as polyester fiber and acrylic fiber, which can absorb sweat and release moisture easily as well as keep the feet fresh and comfortable.


2. The thickness of running socks should be moderate

Generally, runners should wear thicker socks, but it doesn’t mean that the thicker socks are always the better, because too thick socks will affect the feeling of the foot, while too thin socks can not protect the feet or achieve the buffering effect. Some girls wear silk stockings, very easy to slip, while running, which is dangerous and easy to get injured.



3. Running socks can reduce the pressure on the feet

In recent years, five-toe socks have become popular among runners. Each toe is structurally separated by a cloth, which prevents forming calluses and blisters between the toes even after a long run. In addition, the five toes can move independently, so the big toe, little toe, and the heel can form three support points, and runners can step more firmly. However, some runners reflect that calluses and sore toes occur after wearing five-toe socks, so if runners choose custom running socks, they should try them on for a while to judge whether the socks are suitable.


4. The details of running socks are well-controlled

Remember the six-word pithy formula of “tight, loose, large, smooth, plat and clear". That is, the tightness degree of the welt and the leg of the stockings should be moderate, the sole of the stocking should be loose, the sock's heel should be large, the surface should be smooth, the rib top should be flat without skew, and the needle lines should be clear, and there are no exposed stitches in patterns, stocking toes or heels.
