What would you give up to enjoy new running socks?
How about your current favorite socks?
Today Runners' Lounge is kicking off The WRIGHTSOCK Challenge, which invited runners to try WRIGHTSOCKs in place of their current favorites during August.
Why WRIGHTSOCKs? This brand provides a unique double-layer construction that delivers—make that guarantees—no blisters. In addition to moisture management and temperature regulation, WRIGHTSOCK uses two layers to manage the friction that is normally transferred to the skin. The result... skin shear is eliminated. WRIGHTSOCK also makes single-layer sock with the same guarantee.
What’s ahead for these Challenge participants? Will it truely be blister free? Or withdrawal and hallucinations of socks from their running past? Or a new level of comfort and support for miles to come? Who knows. We’re looking forward learning first-hand from these runners’ experiences wearing WRIGHTSOCKS on runs of different distances, intensity, different weather and running conditions, and even races.
You can meet the Challengers in their introduction forum and learn more about their sock experiences and what they're looking for from their new WRIGHTSOCKs. Throughout the month of August, we'll be bringing to you their reactions as they hit the roads and test their socks under every condition.
Last question: What has 250 feet and smiles?
