Feetures! Performance Socks- have you heard of this brand? Well, I had the opportunity to demo a few pairs and want to give you the skinny. Before the details, I would like to thank @Feetures for the socks and @NathanRichie for the connection.
Fit: Snug – bands of Lycra® hug your entire foot for maximum support. Supportive fit eliminates movement to prevent blisters, they are very snug! Take ample time to adjust the sock to contour your foot, again they are snug.
Moisture: Dry – these socks have something called iWick; synthetic moisture managing fibers that remove moisture up to 4X faster than traditional performance polyester fibers. My last few test runs have been dry…it will be interesting to see how these work during brutal summer runs.
Feel: Dense – there is a high number of stitches per square inch, the result is a strong cushion under your feet. Natural fibers include Merino wool and rayon from Bamboo- the fiber combination helps regulate body temp, while preventing odors and removing moisture. There was a slickness feel to these socks…not against the foot, but against the shoe. I expect this feeling to subside after a few washes.
Toes: Comfortable – “Perfect Toe” technology was developed by Feetures to create a seam-free toe closure. This gives you a smooth interior and exterior stitching around the toe area. Most socks with a seam will add an extra layer of material, resulting in blisters or discomfort depending on toe structure.
It will take more than a few runs to understand how well these socks are working. So far, they have been a great fit and I look forward to continued enjoyment.
