    Ok, as a tomboy I never thought I'd be asking about socks, but here I go anyway!

     

    Wait, how are those things related?  Are you implying men don't need socks, or only girly girls need socks?  I wear Balegas when I run.  So does my wife.  They're comfy.

    HTFU?  Why not!

          No, only girly girls CARE about what socks they wear.  I'm lucky to get two that match on my feet.  It's becoming a rare occurence.

          I bought two pairs of Wright's and 4 Feetures (massive discount!).  So far it seems my blisters are healing up nicely!  Thanks for the suggestions Smile

              It's probably your smelly socks......

               

              I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

                 

                It's probably your smelly socks......

                  I just got some balega socks and they are super comfy, I also got a new 3 pack of wrightsocks, because they are just awesome for sweaty summer runs.

                      +1 on the Wright double layer.  I just ran a 50 miler in them and didn't have one blister.

                       

                      Not really sure I understand what socks have to do with gender... If a guy posted this I'd hope someone would call him out about it.

                       

                      With that...

                       

                      I've got a drawer full of most of the brands mentioned above (and several others not mentioned) so I'll throw out another +1 for Wright....not that the others aren't also good.  I've  been racing in Wright for a year or two, including this month's marathon in the rain. No problems. Good value.
