RUNNING SOCKS - FITNESS FOR YOUR FEET
The criteria for good running socks are more varied than you might think. The most important is the fit. Your running socks should fit the anatomy of your foot exactly. Seams in the wrong place can lead to blisters. Similarly, jogging socks should not be too big. Wrinkles caused by excess length can lead to pressure points on the feet. This is why there are differences between men's socks and women's socks - female athletes often have smaller feet and should choose the women's model accordingly.
There is also a difference between thin jogging socks for summer and running socks for winter. However, the latter are not necessarily the best running socks even on cold days. Normal running socks usually have sufficient temperature regulation. In the Keller Sports running shop you will find an exclusive selection of running socks from ASICS, NIKE, CEP, FALKE, X-BIONIC and others.
RUNNING SOCKS - THE BEST MATERIAL
Basically, you have the choice between padded and non-padded running socks. The former are only necessary if your toes are slightly cold. Due to the lower perspiration, unpadded running socks are recommended for long runs and competitions. In addition, you retain a more intensive perception of the ground. To avoid sweaty feet altogether, you can get breathable running socks in our online shop. Airy synthetic fibres such as merino wool, polypropylene or mesh fabric are used here. The material absorbs your sweat and transports it to the surface. In any case, make sure that the cotton content is below 70 percent. Good running socks should not be too absorbent.
COMPRESSION SOCKS FOR RUNNERS
Special running socks have protectors in certain places. These take the strain off your muscles and ligaments and protect you from overstraining and spraining. Compression socks are a special type of good running socks. They promote blood circulation by applying pressure to the calves. This improves oxygen transport in your legs. You can get these compression models in the form of socks or knee socks, the so-called energising products. These running socks are especially recommended for long-distance runners.
RUNNING SOCKS - THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES
Of course you can wear normal socks for jogging. For high or prolonged exertion and to prevent injuries or overstraining, you should buy high-quality running socks. Here are the advantages at a glance:
- Breathable material
- Compressions provide more oxygen for the muscles
- Injury-prevention models available
- Supportive effect for long runs
- Prevent blisters and pressure sores
- Reduced risk of injury
- No slipping, rubbing or chafing
SPORTS SOCKS - COMFORT & EFFECTIVENESS WHEN RUNNING
Professional runners pay attention to optimal equipment for the best performance. Good running socks should not be underestimated. If you choose the right size and fit, your feet will thank you for the supportive properties of jogging socks. For example, compression socks promote blood circulation in your feet and calves, and your feet maintain a comfortable climate even under high and prolonged stress thanks to optimised moisture transport to the outside. The socks do not chafe, rub or slip, reducing the risk of blisters, overuse reactions or injuries. Depending on the season, you can choose from special summer or winter running socks. Your feet will thank you!
