I like my feet! Let me clarify that statement. I like to take care of my feet, they are good to me and help me get from point A to B and are a critical part of my job. I am so concerned with it that I have five pairs of shoes in my running arsenal. In addition to shoes, I also have multiple pairs of socks, with multiple brands, each with different types and distances of races. With that said, my review is from a personal perspective of socks and what I need out of a sock. It is in no way a determination of technical design pros and cons or the quality of the sock, simply how it worked for me.
Life has been very hectic over the last three weeks. I was in Vegas for a week at a work conference and have had a lot of time at doctor’s offices getting cut on as well.
Now onto the review… As I said above, I have multuple pairs of socks and shoes. I like cushioned socks that are thick and moisture wicking. In my three test runs with these socks, I had the same sentiments at the end of each run. They were simply not cushy enough for me. The Wigwam Ultimax socks are a very thin sock that many runners would like. The material does an excellent job at pulling the moisture away from your feet, but they just did not supply me with what I like in a sock. The thin sock caused a lot of hot spots on my feet in each of my runs that resulted in blisters by the third run and I had to switch back to my other running socks. I have found that these socks are great for working out in the gym. They are light and airy which is always good for me and since my gym routine isn’t a high impact, I was able to complete a workout without any issues with my feet.
I will definitely be buying a couple more pair for use in the gym. I encourage you to read reviews that my fellow BibRavePros have posted (the reviews are below). The price is cheap in my opinion compared to what I have paid for several other brands. If you hurry, you can get 15% off with the discount code below AND get free shipping!!!
