Exercise Tip Thursday - Socks

Thursday is here, and with it comes Exercise Tip Thursday! This week, we're talking all things socks. Now, you may think a sock is a sock is a sock, but we're here to tell you, all socks are not created equal. That cotton sock you've been wearing is causing you nothing but trouble. Around here, we like to say, "Cotton is rotten," because cotton holds onto moisture like a sponge. When that sock is on your foot, that translates into blisters, chafing, and hot spots. Who wants that while exercising? No one. That's why we'd like to introduce you to three AMAZING sock brands that we highly recommend and carry: Balega, Feetures, and Drymax.

All of three of these brands are designed to wick moisture away from your feet, preventing those blisters, chafing, and hotspots. Plus, they just feel really nice and soft when you put them on. While each brand may cost more per pair than an average cotton sock, in terms of price per use, these socks are going to be a much better deal. They are specifically designed for exercise enthusiasts' feet and are more durable than a typical sock. Translation: you're getting more bang for your buck with these socks. Each model that we carry differs in terms of sock height, cushioning, contour, and color. Ultimately, it comes down to which feels best on your foot.

 As an added bonus, we just received Balega's "Words of Grit & Grace" line that come with inspirational sayings on them and $1 from every sale benefits the Breast Cancer Fund. They're various shades of pink, and super cute. Check 'em out today!

Well, there you have it, friends. The importance of a good sock cannot be stressed enough. Even though most people don't think about this little addition to a workout experience, they can make a huge difference. Stop in to test out our socks and see what a difference they make.
