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.
