Smart Wool Socks to Run In
Smart wool socks will keep your feet from freezing during your winter runs.
How do you keep your toes from freezing in the winter? Smart wool socks, according to my friend Anne who received them as a Christmas gift and has been running in them ever since.
These will not only keep your feet from freezing in the winter, but they're thermos like quality will also wick away the moisture and sweat from ur feet in the summer. And best of all, these womens wool socks made just for running are friction free so they don't cause chafing.
What about when it's really cold outside? Try wearing a pair of running tights underneath. Or go with a pair that comes up mid calf like these warm wool socks.
And if it's snowing, after you put your socks on, but before you put your shoes on, wrap your feet in saran wrap. The key, my friend Marny says who runs 20 miles in the mountains of Colorado like it's nothing, is to "make sure you have long socks or long tights that don't leave a space between your ankles and tights. You don't want the saran wrap touching your skin anywhere."
These socks are not cheap though, running anywhere from $10 - $30 a pair, you might want to put them on your Christmas list now. On the other hand, they are an affordable and wonderful gift if you have any running friends.
