<i>Yo, Pep, I don't think they're gonna play this on the radio<br>
And why not? Everybody has socks....</i><br><br>
So what socks do you have that you love?<br><br>
I just bought a pair since they were on sale at <a href="http://www.campmor.com" target="_blank">www.campmor.com</a> and I like them. They are Wrightsock double-layer coolmesh quarter socks. And they came in grey, and in women's small, so they aren't too big, like most socks are. No bunching up! Very comfortable.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.campmor.com/images/footwear/19690.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
I want to buy some Injinji socks, but I haven't been able to bring myself to spend that much on a pair of socks yet.<br><br>
Tell me about <b>your</b> socks.

I have the same socks, they were given away at a trail race. They're awesome for trail running. My feet stayed warm even though they were soaking wet.

All my socks are worn out. Now that I am starting to actually run again, I probably need some new ones. Maybe I will give these a shot when the time comes that I am actually running more than 30 min at a time! <img alt="icon_colors.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_colors.gif">

I've been having a great time in Wrightsocks with Smartwool over them lately. I had a problem with my first pair of Wright Socks, and they comp'd me 4 replacement pairs (via Fed EX). Great customer service!!!

For my last muddy trail race I used a pair of injinjis with a pair of sealskinz over them. The result worked pretty well, although some moisture did make it through, particularly when I went through knee deep mud/slush/water puddles.<br><br>
But fifty bucks worth of socks on my feet? It seemed a little excessive.

I'm a fan of Wrightsocks. After a reccomend from the local shoe guy, I've been wearing them for several years now. Rare is the blister. Love 'em.<br><br>
With trail shoes, I also use Damn Tough. (I couldn't find a photo.)

I like Wright Socks in the Summer, SmartWool in the winter. Ahhh. I LOVE SmartWool. I keep buying more, I'm going to go broke buying good socks. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I recently splurged on a Smartwool midweight jersey. . .talk about comfort!! If I had the $$ I would buy enough to wear every day. Wicks great, keeps you warm, and doesn't stink!!!!

Hm. I generally wear Smartwools but some of those work better than others. I have one pair of Wright socks that actually <i>give</i> me blisters, on short runs no less, and one pair that work fine, so I guess it just depends.<br><br>
I've got a pair of the regular Injinji (based on Meri's recommendation) and I like 'em, although my toes aren't as long as the toes of the socks. I have to fiddle with the sock combo to get enough cushion for the ball of my foot though.

I'm thinking I may splurge on the Nuwool Injinji's. . .could be the best of both worlds. The cotton/lycra injinji's just don't wick well enough for me. Smartwools are by far the best wicking IMO.<br>
I'm avoiding my Wrightsocks on road runs over 10 miles and ALL trail runs. At Umstead, I saw a lot of folks having problems with dirt buildup b/w the double layers, causing friction.

I have been noticing problems with my Wrightsocks in dry, dusty conditions. I will need an alternate sock plan.

wool injinji is cool, although I didn't know they made wool ones until meri mentioned it at Umstead.<br><br>
Now that you mention it, I did get my blisters with the one pair of wright socks when I was running on a dirt road in dusty conditions. But it was also where the seam at the toe sits, so I figured it was from the seam. I might try that pair again. I haven't worn them except that one time.
