I never learned the importance of good socks until training for my first half marathon.
Who cares how good your shoes are if the minute your feet sweat, or you cross into longer run territory, you blister?
I have to be honest though- spending $12 on ONE pair of socks was not something I was stoked about.
I started with Feetures which guarantee no blisters, and boast awesome neon colors. They are tight fitting and thin, which I thought would be a perfect solution. They work great for short to medium runs, but the minute I hit 8 miles, I would get gnarly blisters on the arch and side of my feet.
These slightly thicker socks are perfection. No blisters and very comfortable.
Good socks are worth the investment.
Every person has their preference and Balega is mine.
