Reviews Falke Running RU3

Falke Running RU3

The Falke RU3 is a good sock for training, with padding along the bottom and up the heel. As reflected in many run socks these days, this cushioning also extends across the toes. However, on the RU3 it goes much further back to cover the top of most of the forefoot. The heel padding also wraps around further than most.

The reality is that this doesn’t really seem to add much to the protection provided by these socks, but there’s a noticeable difference in the overall comfort as your toes revel in luxury. The rest of the sock is comprised of a thinner material, ensuring breathability is adequate; in fact, it takes a pretty intense series of intervals for your feet to feel like they’re heating up.

Overall, the RU3 fit well and the thickness of the socks doesn’t impact on the fit of your shoes.
