FEETURES!® Elite Ultra Light No Show “All Go” Socks!
From the makers of FEETURES!® –
Feetures! Elite is our most technically advanced sock. Thanks to the Sock-Lock™ support system, your foot and sock become one. The Ultra Light sock is our thinnest sock and fits like a second skin. The sock fits so well, it’s almost as if it’s not there. The No Show Tab sits below the ankle, but features front and back tabs to protect against chafing and keep the sock from sliding into the shoe.
- The Power Arch (Patent Pending) is anatomically constructed to provide targeted support where it’s needed most.
- Anatomical right and left foot design enhances fit, delivering maximum protection by helping to eliminate blisters.
- iWick® fibers wick moisture to keep feet dry and odor-free.
- The PerfectToe™ (No irritating toe seam.)
- Ultra thin construction takes up minimal room inside the shoe.
The Elite Ultra Light No Show socks are available in 6 different color combinations in sizes S, M, L, XL and are $14.99 per pair, which I find to be a very comparable price as compared to other running socks in their class. Since blue is my favorite color, I went for the Aqua.
First of all, I was very excited about the color of the socks I chose. Something about the aqua color, besides being one of my favorite colors, just seemed calming to me (yeah, that statement is a little hokie, but . . . ) and I couldn’t wait to put them on and try them out. The anatomical idea and makeup of these socks is genius! You have specific socks for specific feet and there is a noticeable difference in the sock construction when you wear them, in my opinion!
I decided to wear my socks around the office pre-run just to get a feel for how they would be on my feet. Nothing like planning a long run and trying a new product. That would be an epic runner gear fail. I was not disappointed at all in these ultra light socks. Very soft fabric and thin enough to fit into my minimalist shoes that I just purchased for my birthday. No rubbing, no bunching and no irritation around the heel or toe areas.
How are they on a run is the important question though, right?
I hit a hilly 7 mile route this afternoon outfitted in my Feetures!® and New Balance Minimals and I loved it. The compression in the sock that I needed and the fact that there was no heavy sweat issues during my run which caused rubbing as I have had with other running socks made me love them even more. Most of the time I find that my running socks are either too thick in some places and too thin in others and seem to cause rubbing along the interior areas of my foot near my big toes. I didn’t have that problem at all with these socks and they wicked away all excess sweat that I may have had during the run. They are All Go in my book!
I will certainly be placing an order for more of these socks in the future and hope that you will check out Feetures!® for yourself and for your feet!
