I have been into running since my “fitness awakening” in the year 2005. Through the years, as I get to love this sport more, I have accumulated a lot of learning gathered from mentors, coaches, friends, reading materials and most importantly, actual experiences.
One of those important learnings that I have always kept in mind is that a runner’s performance/comfort not only lies on choosing a good pair of shoes but also in choosing a perfect pair of socks to use with the shoes. The socks after all is the main item which gets into contact with our feet. With a poor sock-selection, blisters are a big possibility together with sweaty, smelling feet that more often than not leads to smelly feet.
When I received an invite for the Thorlo socks launch, I have thought that ah, finally I will get to know more about this premium socks brand and have an appreciation why it is priced higher than the common running-specific socks brand. And these are bits and pieces of what I learned from the launch:
And here are some of their socks collection made specific for running:
These socks may be at bit pricey but if you are one for comfort, protection and durability, a Thorlo socks purchase may after all be a sound investment for you. We were told that these line of socks last for as long as 10 to 20 years!
Personally, I have yet to try my THORLO Thin Cushion pair that was provided to us with compliments during the launch but I was also particularly pretty interested in getting that EXPERIA model which I always see whenever I go to Riovana for a visit. I might probably purchase and try that one out first as it is said to be the premium model for running.
As I prepare to try on a pair, I with the support of Colerosh Incorporated – exclusive distributor of Thorlo socks here in the Philippines, will be giving out THREE PAIRS OF THORLO SOCKS to three lucky runners of this blog so that they too can join me in my “discovery” of the Thorlo brand of socks.
