Treat Your Feet!

Disclosure:  These socks were provided to me to review by Kindrunner; and while I am a Kindrunner Ambassador and think they are a great company, I was not otherwise compensated for the review and all opinions, as always, are 100% my own!

Being a runner, I know the importance of having the proper gear for my runs.  I do appreciate a good deal, but sometimes it's better to go with the more expensive product if it is of a better quality.  Good thing for us thrifty folk, quality running gear does not always come with a hefty price tag!!!

Thanks to my friends at Kindrunner, I recently had the opportunity to try Feetures Elite socks with light cushion and a no show tab.  They sent me the pretty electric green ones with silver trim!

Feetures socks are different from any other pair of socks I have tried because they have an anatomical design for each foot - see how they are labeled in my pic?  This ensures you have the best fit possible to reduce your risk of blisters.  The Power Arch (patent pending) is designed to provide you with support where you need it the most.  They are made if iWick fibers to keep your feet dry and odor-free and a high-density cushioning to provide extra support for high impact areas.  Seriously, these things are SOOOO comfy, it's almost like you are not even wearing socks.  There is no irritating toe seam either.  There are front and back tabs and also one under the ankle to protect your feet from chaffing and to keep the sock from sliding around in your shoes but you can't see them!

I took these babies out for a 5 mile run when I got them and I am a HUGE fan.  I could definitely feel the cushioning and loved the extra comfort that provided!  I am also a big fan because Feetures is a family-owned and operated USA company - MADE in the USA folks!  And the best part - these awesome socks won't break the bank either!  You can pick up a pair on Kindrunner's website for only $11, or $10.45 if you go with their Confident Runner Pricing.  Don't forget - shipping is always FREE :)  Click on my Ambassador link to the right to get started!

I can't wait to add more of these socks to my collection!  Maybe I'll go with Camellia with violet trim next time ;)

QOTD:  What are your favorite pair of running socks?  Ever tried Feetures??


  1. I do have a pair of Feetures. I got them when my local running store was having buy 3 get 1 free on socks. I usually go Balega. But I thought why not try the Feetures. I like them but I think I need a size down from what I got to get the best fit.

  2. I don't know that I've ever seen the Feetures in my local store; I will have to check next time I go!

  3. Flat feet (or low/fallen arches) can lead to over-pronation, a biomechanical imbalance that may cause serious problems over time. When people who suffer from over-pronation stand or walk, the arches collapse with every step we take, and the ankles roll inwards.
