Retail Therapy: Balega Socks

Posted by Filed Under: Gear & Apparel

(Ed.’s Note: Runner Susan is off to the Big Apple to run the N.Y.C. marathon on Sunday. Let’s make sure she gets a lot of comment love to carry her on her journey!)

I have a new favorite sock. The Balega sock. Balega brand is relatively new to the US, An American-South African initiative, the socks have been designed and race proven over many years. And the best thing about the sock is that is running focused, using the best raw materials available.

My favorite part about the socks are the hand linked seamless, which eliminates abrasion across the toes. They also have an extra deep heel pocket to ensure they fit the foot and don’t slide down during a run.

Prices start around $8.99 and are available in both cushion and non-cushion socks, all of which utilize our own ‘DryNamix’ moisture management technology. Sizes: small – extra large.

    I agree! Long lasting and great feel. My favorite sock, but pricey. Also, hard to find.

    Best of luck in NYC! I swear by these socks. I’ve been running in them for the last 3 months while training for the Dallas White Rock Marathon and I couldn’t be happier!
