TOP OF THE SOCKS
Balega Ultralight Contoured Fit
Nothing beats slipping on a fresh new pair of socks. For me, this microfibre pair felt as soft as cashmere. They are reinforced in all the right areas, such as the deep, ergonomically formed pocket on the heel; and yet they were elasticated enough to allow my forefoot to splay naturally through the gait cycle, without restriction. I do lots of speed work, so the high heel tab was a win for me, because it stopped the sock from slipping. It’s also useful during strength training, when I use ankle straps and pulleys.
