Finding the best sock for your run

The importance of high-quality performance running socks cannot be overstated. Your sock is the link between your foot and the running shoe you trust to carry you to your goal. So, which sock is the right fit for your run?

The right running sock alone might not win you the race, but the wrong choice could certainly spoil your run. That’s why each of the new range of On Performance Running Socks is Swiss Engineered to give your feet targeted support, with a lightweight anatomical design that delivers long-distance comfort.

 

Specially shaped arch support provides a snug feel, while a subtle ridged pattern stimulates proprioceptive sensory receptors in your foot to enhance awareness of your foot’s position. It literally switches your feet ‘on’ to help you perform

 

Available in High, Mid, and Low, we take a look at the right choice for your run.  

The High Sock

Picture the scene: The sun is just beginning to peek over the trees, but you’ve already logged miles on your favorite wooded trail. The crunch of leaves under foot and the steady rhythm of your breathing is the soundtrack of your morning meditation. Through the cold air, brush, and high grass, your mind is clear and calm. With the High Sock, your legs are protected from the inevitable perils and scratches of off-road running, so you can focus on chasing your runner’s high.

 

When you pull on your High Socks, you’re making a visible statement: I’m ready to run. The lightweight protection of the High Sock protects your legs on epic trail runs and provides warmth on chilly, commuter dashes, while the variety of colors mean you’ll stand out wherever you run. Plus, there are the benefits you don’t see. The anatomically shaped foot bed and toe section provide for a perfect fit – meaning your performance will get you noticed, while you hardly notice your socks. From chilly urban runs to off-road adventures, the lightweight protection of the High Sock has you covered.

You’re approaching a familiar road marker. It’s at this marker where you typically turn around, ready to head home. This time, your feet tell you to keep going. You’re running farther than you’ve gone before, without discomfort or irritating distractions. With the Mid Sock, you don’t have a reason to turn back. You keep pushing forwards.

 

The strength of the Mid Sock is balance. Lightweight and breathable yet snug and supportive, the Mid Sock masters the concept of a happy medium. The thermo-regulating mesh keeps temperatures at the right level, while the height strikes a compromise between protection and minimalism. The Mid Sock keeps your run in perfect balance, which means you’ll want to keep going.
