I got these socks from The Sockmine Company. I have had a pair before and they were outstanding. On this occasion they didn’t have any shorter ankle socks so I got a pair of the longer ones. Previously I trained and ran the Glencoe Marathon In them and I suppose the test is did I get any blisters? of course i got a couple of small bubbles on the inside of one toe but none on the heal and the base of the foot. These are by far the most comfortable running socks I have ever used. I get into a mild panic if I can’t find my SockMine socks before a long run which is often because my kids seem to find it funny to mismatch my socks. Or the tumble dryer develops an appetite for high quality and devours them.
