Two questions for you to consider: who hasn’t been running in the wet and cold and wanted their feet to feel warmer and drier? And who would think of putting wool into a running sock? It might sound a bit strange, but that is exactly what the folks at Point6 decided to do. Amazingly enough, this sock has a Merino wool blend as the secret ingredient. We gave these socks a test run to find out if the wool really does keep feet warmer and drier on soggy winter runs.
I know, when your hear ‘wool sock’ it makes you think of a big, thick wool hiking sock. In this case, a giant wool sock jammed into a sleek running shoe – not our idea of comfortable. Well, this sock is nothing like that. It is sleek, comfortable and as soon as you hit the road it keeps a steady warm and dry feeling on your feet no matter what cold and wet conditions you hit.
Our testing found it to be a fantastic addition to our sock drawer for the winter and since it is so thin, it should stay useful through the warmer months too. Come in and check out the Point6 running socks for yourself and help keep your feet warm and dry! (And did we mention the wool helps prevent odour problems as well? Not a bad bonus!)
