About a year ago, I discovered a new passion: running. How many other activities would allow me to lose inches while getting fresh air and catching up on my “reading” with my MP3 player full of audio books? But running also had some serious cons… the biggest of which were BLISTERS.
It’s amazing how miserable those running blisters can make you. Sadly, I had taken the time to fill my iPod with the latest John Grisham novel, but I hadn’t properly cared for the most important part: my feet! Then I came across the Thorlo Thick Cushion Running Socks, and let me tell you, I had met my sole mate. They are the perfect running socks, with a comfort-cushioned footbed that reduces shock and chafing, while preventing blisters. And what about the blisters that I already had? Well the Thorlos are also made with performance fibers that keep the foot amazingly cool and dry. Without any extra moisture in the sock, my heels could heal in no time.
The Thorlo socks come in a variety of styles and thicknesses, but the Thick Cushions are definitely the best for running. They offer protection to the max for long workouts, and they’ve really allowed me to go the distance. Fast forward to a year later, and I’ve already completed a half-marathon and am training for the full 26.2 next spring. Luckily with my Thorlos, I’ll be crossing that finish line in stride. And that’s not an easy “feet!”
Thorlo Running Thick Cushion Unisex Socks come in crew, mini-crew, micro mini-crew and rolltop styles. My personal favorites are the micro, for minimal tan lines, or the rolltop for extra heel support. They also come in different colors, and now at Footwear etc. you save 10% if you buy 3 or more pairs.
