SofSole review and giveaway.

I love running socks. Love them! And, yes, I have my favorite styles and brands (I even recently wrote a little about that over here). But, honestly, I just love good running socks.

So, when SofSole asked if I wanted to try out their socks there was no way I could say no.

I was sent three pairs of their Coolmax socks, which I found to be good warm weather socks. They were quite light with a nice amount of padding on the bottom. They have a little banding around the arch but I would have liked a little more. I prefer running socks with a fair amount of "grab" around the arch, or instep, and these socks were light in that area. I'm sure that is just a personal preference thing.

At any rate, the socks fit well and didn't slip around in my shoes. Overall, I was pleased with them and I'm happy to have them in my rotation.

You can find a SofSole retailer here. You can also purchase SofSole socks (and their other products) on Amazon as well. They retail there for $11.00.

Giveaway!

In addition to the socks, I was also sent a pair of insoles but, unfortunately, I can't use them because I run with custom orthotics. So, I am giving them away!

Up for grabs is one pair of Airr Women's Performance Insoles.

From the package:

"Maximum air cushioning for high-impact activities. Heel and arch encapsulated chamber. CoolMax fabric cover. Polymer gel forefoot cushioning."

The insoles are women's size 8-11. You can read more about them here.

To enter

If you would like to be entered to win the insoles, leave me a comment and tell me you want in! If you spread the word (link from your blog, facebook, twitter, phone tree, whatever), just leave me another comment to let me know and you'll get another entry. It's that simple!

This giveaway will run from now until Thursday, June 10 at 11:59pm EST. The winner will be chosen using random.org and announced on Friday 6/11.

Good luck!

  5. Please count me in! I'm in the market for more socks. All of my running socks have holes in the heel. I must have a lot of friction there or something.
