X-Socks Run Sky Run

It’s easy to see why X-Socks are becoming more popular. The left- and right-specific socks have padding at the forefoot, at the heel and across the toes, which of course all adds up to extra comfort, but the pads are not so thick as to hamper the fit of your shoes. The socks grip well enough to stay in place and a good mix of breathable materials keep your feet cool and dry.

The strips running down the side of the ankle add a feeling of stability without being at all restrictive. While the neck of the sock is mostly light, and therefore breathable, there’s a pad running up the Achilles area that helps to prevent any rubbing.

There are a lot of features on the X-Socks, which work to give comfort without any feeling that ungainly extras have simply been bolted on. All in all these are very light and comfortable socks.
