RUNNER'S REVIEW: FEETURES! ELITE SOCKS December 22, 2014 13:00

I took a spin in my new pair of Feetures! Elite Ultra Light running/walking socks wearing my Saucony Kinvara 5 (fitted by St. Pete Running Company).

The sock label boasts, "NO BLISTERS." This drew my attention immediately, as I've dealt with blister problems in the past...before SPRC got me in the right shoes. Wider toe base is important for those of us with troublesome pinky toes.

The anatomical fit and targeted compression of the Feetures! Elite socks made my feet feel nice and snug. Each sock has a Left and Right indicator, which is great for obvious reasons: my left foot is shaped differently than the right. The best socks, and shoes for that matter, don't draw attention to themselves during the walk/jog/run. They aid the journey, gently carrying you along without asking to be noticed.

Does Bria recommend the Feetures! Elite socks?

Bria YES

The socks are extremely comfortable. As I jogged around the park by my house, I forgot that I was supposed to be reviewing the socks. The same was true on the treadmill, and that's what I'm looking for in my running socks--unnoticeable. In hot climates like St. Pete, thinner socks like the Feetures! Elite are ideal, so these were perfect for the 74 degree temperature that I ran in today.
