Drymax Socks Review & Giveaway

The folks at Drymax Socks (HERE) let me try out a two pairs of their Drymax Socks. I chose the Drymax Mini-Crew Running Lite-Mesh. Since I wear a size 10 running shoe, I was kind of on the border between sizes Medium and Large. I tried both and felt that the size Large fit me better. I definitely DO belong on Team Bigfoot now!! (Perhaps it's the bulging bunions?!)


Their socks come in FIVE DIFFERENT SIZES! Drymax has a True Fit sizing system on their website so that you are SURE to find the perfect match for you!


I prefer a thin sock and a "low cut" sock, but not too low. Call me picky?! I don't like them slipping down the moment I head out on my run and I don't like the sides of my shoes rubbing against my ankles. The mini-crew socks held up to picky ol' me! They never slipped or bunched during either of my 5K runs on the treadmill.

Drymax Socks are offered in soooo many styles. They have developed about 25 different styles to be sport and enironment specific.

Drymax guarantees that their socks will keep your feet drier and more comfortable than any other socks. If not, you can send them back with your receipt for a FULL REFUND! I definitely enjoyed my experience and will be keeping both pairs in my sock drawer. I have had the opportunity to try out several different brands lately and these fall into the same, highly-ranked category.
The Running Lite-Mesh socks were designed with a special dual layer moisture removal system that moves moisture away from the skin through the innter Drymax layer to the outer absorbent layer almost instantly. I'm not going to just rave about everything I try out, but my feet were feeling really good, and dry, after my 3 miles on the treadmill. Usually after a run, I have to toss off a soaking wet sock into the laundry basket. Not this time. They were actually pretty dry. I can't wait to see how these things hold up during a long run.

And, Drymax Socks are MADE IN THE USA!

  3. In Florida, I think I could use the DriMax Hot Weather Running Socks because "Moisture significantly increases friction (stickiness) between socks and skin. The higher the friction, the hotter the feet and the greater the chance of getting blisters. Higher friction limits skin surface movement, but still allows inner tissue movement. This shearing effect physically separates the two layers which fill with fluid forming a blister." . That is what I learned from their site!! The hot weather socks have Blister guard!! Awesome!!!

  17. On the drymax website I was in awe of the video (where they turn the sock inside out and after soaking it in water, the inside is dry). I've been wanting to try these out forever...(and for the record, I am also a member of team bigfoot - we wear the exact same shoes in the exact same size!)
