I had first heard of PowerSox when another blogger had a giveaway for a pair. (I didn't win, by the way) So I was surprised when I was contacted last week via Twitter if I'd be interested in reviewing a pair myself. If you know me, you know I can't say no to free stuff. With all the miles I'm going to start putting in, I figured trying out a new brand of socks wouldn't be a bad idea.
I decided on the Advanced Dry sock in pink. The website describes them as:
- HydroTec® Moisture Wicking Yarn
- Ultra Thick/Thin Construction
- Hand Link Toe Seam
- Moisture Management
- Arch Support
Honestly, they are THE most comfortable low cut work out socks I've ever worn! What I liked the most about them was the extra material along the heel and around the toe and forefoot. Around the arch is less material and allowed my foot to breathe. Here are some closer pics of the socks and me actually wearing them. Ignore the fancy couch pattern.
They are seriously comfortable, hugged my arches appropriately, provided the right amount of warmth (I hate hot and sweaty feet!) and they weren't too high or too low around my ankles. I even wore them to bed and I never wear socks to bed unless I absolutely have to.
So then I wondered how they would hold up in the wash. Were they made cheaply? Would they pill and would I have all these fuzzy balls on my socks? Would they shrink in the dryer? Would the colors bleed? None of those things happened. There was just a little bit of pilling in the gray areas, but I didn't think it was too bad.
On to the GIVEAWAY...
I will be using Random.org to pick the winner by April 20, 2013. To enter, leave a comment with which PowerSox Advanced Dry socks you would want, what your favorite form of exercise is AND also follow my blog. That's all there is to it!
Feel free to share the love! Good luck!!!
