Recently Swiftwick socks offered a giveaway to blogger Jill Conyers at Fitness, Health and Happiness. I have wanted to try out this brand of socks, so this was the perfect opportunity when I won a pair. A box from Swiftwick arrived in my mailbox, and not only did it include the socks, but also a rubber bracelet and decal. Bonus!
There were several things that immediately excited me about the socks. First of all, they are made in the USA. The materials to make these socks include Repreve, a recycled nylon that is a planet friendly item. They have some compression and a moisture wicking feature as well.
Trying them out on a run seemed the perfect test to see if they would be part of my regular running gear. Today was the day, and after 4 miles the result is that they are a winner. The socks have enough compression to keep your toes and feet in a comfortable position. They are thinner than my normal sock (Experia by Thorlo), but after less than a mile, I forgot that my feet had more room in my shoes. It is nice to find another brand that works well and Swiftwick is a quality sock that will be on my shopping list in the future.
Thanks for sponsoring a fabulous giveaway, Jill!
