Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.
Thorlos Running Crew (2 Pairs) small
February 21, 2013
Reviewer: Bec from Boca, FL
Soft and cushioned socks. My last pairs of Thorlo's are 8 years old and are beginning to wear through. I wear them frequently as a floor nurse. These new ones are very soft and have a nice cushion. They do run small. I wear a size 6 shoe, never a 6.5. These size small socks (4-6) are very tight.

Reviewer: Dhall from Burlington, VT
I bought these for my husband after we discovered how great Darn Tough socks are. They are all we like to wear now. These particular socks have a great height and weight to them. Perfect for everyday wear! We bought some for a friend as a gift as well.

I do alot of walking and realized that I need the proper socks as well as shoes. These socks pad my feet very well. These socks do not slide down into my shoes and stay put on my feet as I am walking.
Darn Tough Vermont No Show Cushion 1710 (2 Pairs) Look no further for running socks
December 22, 2012
Reviewer: Will from NYC
I picked up a few pairs of wool running socks from various brands to try out. Of them all, these Darn Tough ones were the most comfortable and likely most durable (although they give you a lifetime warranty on them). I would not hesitate to suggest picking these up!
Drymax Socks Trail Running 1/4 Crew High Sock (3 Pairs) They run BIG!!
November 29, 2012
Reviewer: el scotto from the PDX
I had to send the first pair back (size XL) and ended up with a pair of the Larges. I have size 11.5 feet (which says size XL on the size chart), but the XL's had too much fabric bunching up. The Larges fit like a DREAM! I've heard of other people sizing down too, goog some reviews! Maybe Drymax needs to update their sizing guide?! Anyhow, these socks ROCK! I normally go for 6-10 mile trail runs a few times a week. Nice and padded and all that jazz. Also just ordered a pair of their cold weather running socks... still waiting for those to arrive. Is it ok to say I am quite giddy for their arrival?
