The Wicking Wonders of WrightSock

Enemy number one for most runners is a blister. Depending on where a blister forms, it can cause much discomfort for your training — and other people’s eyes.

Come summertime, sandals can surge up to the top of the enemy list for runners. Sandals can expose all those pesky blisters to everyone. I know a fellow runner whom justifies his croc-wearing habits by saying it allows him to wear a more summer-like shoe while covering up his disgusting runner’s feet at the same time.

Alas, have no fear, runners. As we’ve discussed here at the Socks Addicts blog before, there are ways to fight back!

Since blisters can form from friction, WrightSock makes for a great defender of these pesky intruders. They have a line of socks that are dual layer — making sure the friction stays between layers instead of your foot and shoe.

Now I know what some of you may be thinking right now: “Dual layer?! Sounds like it’s going to be a sock far too thick for summer running.”

No need to worry about that because not only is WrightSock dual layer, but it is very thin and lightweight as well. It’s so thin actually, you can easily wear them in your racing flats.

So how exactly does the dual layer work? Well, the inner layer wicks moisture off and away from your skin. With this, your feet will stay dry — thus eliminating the risk of blisters.

Let’s take a further look into the two layers WrightSock provides for you:

The outer layer is constructed of performance fibers specific to running. The interaction between the layers will absorb friction. The two layers trap air for effective insulation from heat and cold. It can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The outer layer is made up of 72% Polyester, 24% Nylon and 4% Lycra.

The inner layer is smooth, undyed and hydrophobic. It’ll wick moisture away from your feet. It is made up of 70% Polyester and 30% Nylon.

WrightSocks also come equipped with a meshed panel for extra breathability.

WrightSock serves you a triumvirate of moisture management, friction reduction and temperature regulation. They are the lightest running socks you’ll find that won’t sacrifice your feet to the perils of moisture and blisters.

When you’re looking for a sock that will keep your feet looking normal in the summertime so you can wear sandals, then WrightSock is an excellent choice. If you’re looking for a thin, lightweight sock to wear in your racing flats or spikes, again, WrightSock is an excellent choice. WrightSock will work just as hard as you do to keep your feet dry and comfortable.
