Anyone that knows me, knows that I love socks. And to be completely honest, I can be a total snob when it comes to them. Ask my wife, she will back this up. I am very particular when it comes to socks. Some of you may be asking yourself why? It’s just a sock, why does it make a difference? Once you have felt the difference during a long run, or workout you will fully understand what I am talking about. And while you may not get into socks as far as I have, you will think more about what is the first line of defense for your feet. Take care of your feet and they will carry you millions of miles.
The nuts and bolts of what makes Drymax work.
They have a 3D advanced fit. When these socks were developed they were done on 3D foot shaped models. And they have a smaller foot size range within each size. Many times I have purchased a pair of socks, only to get them home and find out I was at one of the far ends of the fit. And this has left me with an ill fitting sock.
They have vented arch band, this keeps my feet cool and comfortable no matter what the temperature is. They also come in different thickness, and heights. I love wearing the hyper-thin no shows in the summer and the regular running 1/4 crew in the fall and winter. They have a ton of options to fulfill what you are looking for in a sock.
There is silver antimicrobial fibers woven in to the sock. What does that mean? They stink less. How much less? So much so that I usually only wash them every third time I wear them. Please keep in mind that when I say this I am talking about using them when when I run or workout. I don’t put on previously warn socks to head in to work. But when I get back from a run I will turn them inside out and place them over my shoes until I go for my next run. Are there times that I have to wash them more often? Sure, but for the most part its the every third time. This also makes the socks last longer, because they are not being beat up by the washing machine as much. I also use Sportwash on them and all of my other cloths. It gets the smell out and keeps my workout gear lasting longer.
Drymax is a duel layer sock. This is where the magic happens. As your feet sweat, it attracts the moisture with the layer closest to your foot, and moves it to the outer layer so that your foot will not remain wet. There is also a fiber called Friction Free Profilen. This is like no stick Teflon on your cooking pots and pans, but this Teflon doesn’t keep your eggs from sticking to your frying pan. These fibers prevent blisters, creating a friction free zone. That along with the wicking profile of the duel layer construction they keep my feet dry and blister free.
There you have it, these are the reasons I wear Drymax socks. Try some out and change the way you look at socks.
