Feel that? That’s the wonderful temperatures of 60-plus degrees strolling in. The delicious Summer Shandy is available again, Spring Training is under way, people are grilling out on patios, and people are prepping for some spring cleaning.
Spring cleaning doesn’t just apply to your home — it should apply to your sock drawer as well. It’s time to toss those bulky socks to the side and stock up on some new socks that will carry you through the spring and into summer.
Now that it’s getting warmer, you don’t want a sock that’s going to overheat your feet while you’re at the office or out on the town. When it comes to casual socks in the spring time, it’s hard to beat SmartWool’s City Slickers for men and Best Friend for women. Both socks, of course, feature SmartWool’s fabulous Merino wool that keeps odor and moisture under control no matter the conditions. Both socks feature lighter cushioning but with the power of wool, even on the cooler spring days your feet will stay warm.
Another reason to celebrate the arrival of the warmer weather is spring activities like running. People are flooding away from the treadmills and hitting the pavement. When you’re buying your new running shoes for the spring, don’t forget about socks too —the most underrated part of your running attire.
Feetures Light Series may be one of the best options to turn to this spring for a warm-weather running sock. They’re ultra-lightweight and ridiculously breathable. They contour and hug to your feet so well, you’ll forget you are wearing them. Its CoolFeet Ventilation System combines mesh vents, fast-drying fabrics and snug-fitting fibers to keep your skin dry while keeping a tight fit on your feet — which means no blisters! The socks are available in no show, crew, mini-crew and quarter length.
Springtime also means baseball time. With Under Armour Baseball Over-the-Calf Socks, you’ll feel just like the pros as you hit the diamond in pure comfort. Under Armour’s Baseball socks wick away moisture and accelerates evaporation as you play and features a fully cushioned footbed that offers maximum shock absorption for long-lasting comfort.
I know, I know…you’re probably already yelling at the computer screen, “WHAT ABOUT GOLF!!??!!” Don’t worry, I didn’t forget. Hitting the links is one of the first things on the to-do list when the weather is anywhere near at least the 50s. Nothing says spring better than the smell of a freshly cut golf course. When you’re getting your golf attire all set up, be sure to add Drymax Golf Lite-Mesh Mini-Crew Socks to your list. These golf socks contain a dual-layer moisture removal system, yet are still lightweight. They contain a mesh air vent system designed to keep your feet cooler — perfect for those late afternoon spring tee times or in the dog days of summer.
Spring is always an exciting time, especially for those of us in places like Michigan. It’s the perfect reward for making it through a grueling winter — so why not reward yourself a little further and pick up some stellar socks that will get you not only through the spring but summer as well.
