Tested: Mitscoots Running Socks

While looking up companies with charitable operations one day, I stumbled upon Mitscoots. It might be a funny name, but they rival Bombas (those super comfy socks I reviewed earlier) when it comes to charitable giving. We’re not just talking socks, though. Mitscoots Outfitters makes a range

Tested: ACEL Compression Socks

You don’t have to wear compression socks to compete in a marathon or triathlon. If you look at the crowds of participants these days, though, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that – these things are everywhere! That’s good news though, because the surging popularity has led

Tested: Feetures! Elite Running Socks

Most people will tell you that all you need to get started running (assuming you have some basic athletic clothing) is a good pair of running shoes. Well, that’s not exactly true. You need good running shoes and socks. If you’re running in white cotton gym socks,

Tested: Bombas Athletic Socks

There’s a new sock company making a name for themselves, and that name is Bombas socks. Bombas is latin for bumble bee, which explains the logo. So today I have yet another review of athletic socks, with the differentiating factor being the tons of hype around these

Tested: CEP Progressive+ Compression Run Socks 2.0

It couldn’t have been all that long ago that there were just a few main sports companies offering compression socks and sleeves for improved race performance. 2007 or 2008 I think it was. I remember CEP, CW-X, and Zensah being the prominent brands when I was first

Tested: Nice Laundry Men’s Dress Socks

I see dress socks as a necessary evil. As much as I love socks, I’ve never been excited about them. And how could I be, with a drawer full of beautiful creations from Darn Tough, DeFeet, Sock Guy, Thorlos, Patagonia, and Balega, to name a few? When

Tested: Balega Socks

Thinking back over the years, I can’t recall buying socks from a running socks company. All my running socks were from companies that made my favorite biking and hiking socks. The one exception now is Balega. They make running socks. You go to their website, you see

Tested: Thorlos Running Socks

Last year I had my first experience with socks from Thorlo. You may remember that I reviewed the Thorlo Experia, which is a lightly cushioned multi-sport sock, likely similar to hiking and running socks you’ve used before. Their comfort was exceptional! But did you know that Thorlo

Tested: Darn Tough Socks

Made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life. That’s what I like to hear! Darn Tough Socks are my kind of socks. First of all, Vermont is a wonderful place to be. I love it. And I love socks. I really love wool socks. Make them colorful wool socks

Tested: REI Merino Wool Hiking Socks

Being a huge fan (and longtime member) of REI, as well as an avid wearer of wool socks, it only made sense for me to purchase some REI brand wool socks. So last year, I got myself some REI Merino Wool Hiking Crew Socks for $12.50. These

Tested: Thorlo Experia Socks

I’m not sure why people are always complaining about getting socks for Christmas presents. Apparently they’re not getting socks like these Thorlo Experia Multi-Sport Socks that I’m writing about today! I’m simply fascinated by socks. Wool socks are by far the best, but a good Coolmax sock

Tested: Patagonia Midweight Hiking Alpine Socks

I found some nice $18.50 wool socks on sale for $11.10 at a local outdoors/sports store. They are the Patagonia Midweight Hiking Alpine Socks. Patagonia is known for quality, so I bought them.

Tested: Performance CoolMax Kevlar Sock

I’ve noticed a slight problem where I spend quite a bit of money for cycling socks, only to have them get holes in them after a few races. So, trying to kill two birds with one stone, I picked up a pair of the Performance CoolMax Kevlar Socks…

Tested: DeFeet Woolie Boolie Wool Cycling Socks

Wool socks alone won’t prevent frostbite, but they are so cozy and comfortable I can’t imagine wearing anything else in cool weather! One of my favorite wool socks is the DeFeet Woolie Boolie. Here is my review…
