"Disclaimer: I received a pair of Ironman low cut Wigwam Socks to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!"
Once I became a real distance runner, I figured out pretty quickly that it was important to have “technical” socks. Moisture wicking became a crucial function that a sock needed to have in order for me to buy it.
All that being said, I didn’t pay top dollar for good well-known brands of socks. I tend to buy them in the sporting dept and my favorite dept store in packages of 3. And wouldn’t you know it? Most of my socks get holes in them pretty quickly. I run every single day so they are getting a lot of wear!
I was given the chance to put Wigwam Socks to the test. They are low cut (exactly the style that I like) and had the following other features:
My first outing in my Wigwam socks was to go trail running. It was over an hour of solid climbing up, skipping down, balancing precariously on rocks. They held up great – no blisters!
My second outing was in a half marathon in the Chicago area. 2 hours of pounding. No blisters!
I also took them out for spin with my fellow BibRavePro @runblogaz. We did a run around the lake and it was getting warm and sweaty. Everything stayed dry.
A lot of the socks I buy seem like they run a little small. These are cut well, just enough shows above your shoes, but you have enough coverage. Overall, I feel like these socks are tough enough to take a beating, but soft and comfy enough to become your favorite pair!
