WrightSocks Product Review & Giveaway

Over the past several months, I was given the opportunity to try four different pairs of socks from WrightSocks (HERE). All four were different styles.

Coolmesh II (HERE)
SLX (HERE)
Running II (HERE)
SLC (HERE)


There are a variety of plain and fun styles (argyle included!), cuts, cushioning, and colors (pink included!) on the WrightSocks website. Prices are affordable, as each pair sells for right around $10. These socks are breathable, will keep your feet cool and dry and blister-free. Buy a few pairs to circulate during your workouts during the week, and they are a pretty small investment to keep your feet pain-free and in good condition for your next run. For the newbie runner, it may seem like sticker-shock. But, try a pair with the Coolmesh design and you won't be disappointed. You'll never wear your old cotton socks again.



About the WrightSock Double Layer Anti-Blister System:

WRIGHTSOCK™ patented Double Layer® construction coupled with the most technically advanced fibers, delivers the blister protection that you need. WRIGHTSOCK™ Double Layer® provides year round comfort and performance with no blisters - guaranteed. Double Layer® delivers the no blister promise through a three part system:

1. Moisture Management
2. Temperature Regulation
3. Friction Reduction

Outer Layer:
Outer Layer is constructed of performance fibers specific to each activity. Interaction between layers absorbs friction- prevents blisters. Two layers trap air for effective insulation from heat and cold.

Inner Layer:
Smooth, undyed, hydrphobic Dri-Wright™ wicks moisture away for cool, dry feet.
Patented 3rd attachment keeps socks properly aligned.

About WrightOnes:

- Seam Free technology ensures smooth comfortable toes area.
- Y-heel promotes anatomically correct fit.
- Stabilizer Zone™ in the arch enhances performance fit.
- Dri-WRIGHT II™ polyester keeps your feet cooler and drier in all rigorous activities.
- Lightweight to Cushioned - WRIGHTONES™ meet your needs.


I wear a women's size ten shoe and opted to try a size Large (fits womens size 9.5-11 or mens size 8.5-11.5). The size Large fit comfortably, but there was plenty of room and I probably could have sported a size Medium comfortably as well.

I really enjoyed the SLX design the most. I prefer a slightly thicker and more cushioned sock, without being bulky. These did the trick for me. They state that they have a moderately cushioned footbed which provides exceptional comfort and shock absorption. I agree. They were perfect for me. They are also seam free, which makes them comfortable, especially in the toe box (something that I often am annoyed by).


I also wore the Double Layer Running II socks on a 10 miler and can attest that they kept my feet blister-free, as advertised. The outer layer of the sock has fibers that allows for rapid moisture movement away from the foot. The inner layer is smooth, undyed, hydrophobic and wicks moisture away for cool, dry feet.

  23. The pink ribbon socks are cool, but I am mostly intrigued by the anti blister technology. If that really works, plain white socks would be fine.

  58. Would love to try the cushioned socks.

  59. I like the mesh quarter socks. I certainly NEVER wear cotton socks for any athletics, but no matter what I wear, I sweat right through them (and often my shoes as well). So the mesh idea may be helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would love the Cushioned DLX low quarter socks. I'll take as much cushioning as I can get!
