Who else loves to wake up early enough each morning to take a brisk walk, or even just a short loop around your building at work in the afternoon? Maybe you're looking for a sock that you can feel comfortable lounging around in, or that you can even dress up for the evening. The Sock Review would like to introduce a great 'everyday' sock that utilizes moisture-wicking fibers and targeted compression to make your everyday activities like walking or lounging, even better. Feetures is known for its superb running socks, but we love these patterned styles that are available for less-demanding activity. Styles pictured here are available in different options on the Feetures website. If you're curious to see more patterns, or their other sock collections, we encourage you to check them out!
As is in the tradition of all the samples that arrive here at The Sock Review, we always try them out for ourselves, and, if weather permits, we love to take them outdoors! Since I'm a fan of a walk on a bright, sunny morning, I chose to try out the women's Horizon Cushion Crew (in navy) with my favorite walking shoes. At first, I didn't realize the socks were left/right-specific, which I quickly discovered when I placed them on the opposite feet (it's great, they have an "L" and "R" by the toe), and realized that the support features of the sock were designed to fit its designated foot better. Once on, I could feel the cushioned foot bottom in this pair immediately, as I began to walk. I would definitely choose this style again for another everyday look. If you're someone that works in a traditional-office work setting, these would be great to pair with a casual outfit, since they are comfortable when sitting as well (I'm wearing the women's Sante Fe Ultra Light crew in Oatmeal right now as I write).
So what are some of the different features that are available in the Feetures Everyday socks? One notable call-out called 'targeted compression,' shown below, helps to add to the comfort and support while wearing. I also really like the fit of the heel of the sock; it didn't feel like it was going to slide around on me. This is due to the Y-heel construction (if you look closely at some socks, you may notice what looks like a "Y" stitch on the heel, which helps the sock to hug the foot heel better than a straight stitch.) I mentioned previously about the L/R specific fit of the socks, which is one of my favorite attributes. Another great feature of the Feetures socks pictured here is the seamless toe - the thought of an itchy or bothersome toe seam being in the way is eliminated here, with the placement of the high-quality hand-linked seamless toe construction.
Want to learn more about all of the features mentioned here? Be sure to check out the Feetures website for more, or simply conduct your own set of sock construction research online; I promise, there's quite a lot to learn and know about socks!
I hope you all enjoyed today's "Feetures feature" - as it is always a pleasure to represent quality sock brands and products out there on the market. Please comment below if you have tried out a pair for yourself, or if you have any questions about this post. Happy start to the new week!
