I was going to say "a few weeks ago" but thinking back on it, it's more like 6 weeks ago. Wow, time flies. Any way, a while ago I had a conversation with a friend at my previous gym and she was telling me about how she only wears certain socks when she works out. Our discussion brought in a few other women, and soon we were having a nice little chat about athletic socks. I seemed to be the only one in the group that didn't wear a speciality sock. I honestly had no idea that socks could make such a difference. Well, I take that back. When I did the 128 mile Keys Endurance Challenge, they gave me good socks and I did notice the difference, but I thought maybe it was my endorphins from being with so many amazing people on a fantastic adventure. Okay, back on track. So, I had this conversation, came home and posted on my Facebook page about athletic socks and was again surprised by the sheer number of people who said they wore special socks. I took notes of some of the brands they recommended and sort of forgot about it A week or so later my friend Denise included me in on a tweet that she had made to Feetures Brand socks. Feetures and I opened a dialogue and within a day they had offered me an amazing opportunity and they sent me 24 pairs of socks that I got to pick out! So cool!
I went from virtually NO speciality athletic socks to being fully-outfitted.
I could hardly wait to try them out! But I did wait. I waited one whole day. And then I wore a pair to go Spinning!
I chose to wear the Feetures Elite Low Cut sock in Lime/Iris. People, when I put these socks on they gripped my foot. Like a mother holding her child's hand through a busy parking lot. They grabbed on and didn't let go. It was awesome. Normally in Spinning I am always messing around with my toes in my shoes because the top of the socks bunch up, and by the end of class my socks are just drenched with sweat. I thought that was how it was supposed to be. But guess what...IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE!!
Feetures have iWick® fibers that wick moisture to keep feet dry and odor-free. And it works!! And there is no irritating toe seam! Lovely!
Today I wore these. Elite Light Cushion Low Cut in Aqua/Pink. And look, they even put the L/R on the sock so you know which foot to put it on (cough cough)
Do you want to have your very own pair of Feetures Elite Performance Socks?? You are in luck! Feetures will send 2 readers each one pair of the Elite sock in the color, size, and style of your choosing (sorry, no Compression sock.)
