Next to your shoes, socks are the next most vital piece of equipment when it comes to running. Any seasoned runner will tell you socks should…
- stay put.
- prevent blisters.
Those are three critical criteria when picking socks and for me, Feetures! delivers all three. Plus, they fit like a glove.
I first learned about Feetures! from my friends at Suncoast Running. Tracey, the owner, swore by them. So, on a whim, I gave them a try and for nearly two years now, I’ve been wearing the light cushion socks ever since.
Recently, when my plantar fasciitis began acting up again, my friends at Suncoast Running recommended I try the Feetures! Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve. As soon as I slipped the sleeves on, I immediately felt a difference in my heels.
Since they only come one per package, I purchased two sleeves that day and since then, I’ve been wearing them every time I run. Occasionally, I even wear them to bed when my heels flare and get grumpy.
And then, I lost one. (I suspect my two year old may have thrown it out.) So, I tweeted my loss and my new found friends at Feetures! sent me a replacement sleeve as well as a couple of pairs of Elite Light Cushion No Show Tab Socks. My feet were very happy again.
In case you’re curious how the sleeves fit, I slip the sleeves on and wear the sleeves UNDER my socks. Since I wear wide shoes, I have plenty of room for both the socks and the sleeves.
And while my feet are feeling better in Feetures! socks, I can also feel better about my carbon footprint. Feetures! uses eco-friendly packaging that is composed of recycled paper and soy based inks. In addition, a portion of the sales from each Feetures! sock will be donated to the National Forest Foundation and that makes Woodsy Owl very happy! Happy feet and happy little trees!
Because I’m such a fan, Feetures! has generously offered one Run DMT reader to win THREE PAIRS of any Feetures! Brand Socks. One of the pairs can even be one Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve, if you want!
