Get Your Butt in Gear: Running Socks by Zip It

Remember when you were a kid and you never carried a purse, or even had a wallet. When you were headed out on the town (like to the ice cream shop on your bike), you put your money in your sock. The change or bills would slip down and you'd be walking on your money! These days that process just sounds a little, well, gross. That is why I am loving these running socks by Zip It.

You can still carry your cash, or ID, around in your sock but now it will stay tucked up in a little zippered compartment and stay away from the sweaty sole of your foot. The ankle-high socks are just tall enough so that items in the zippered pocket won’t dip down and interfere with the performance of your shoe. Plus the sock has been engineered to provide extra shock absorption, to wick away sweat and control the growth of bacteria and fungi.

These scientifically engineered socks with wallet compartment will only set you back $14.99 - buy them directly from Zip It. They're available in blue, white or pink, which is, of course, of my fave!

Same problem- I've got size five feet and socks are always a pain to find. Champion makes some that fit (they're actually women's). I would probably spend the money and get a couple pairs if i thought they'd fit, because I still do put my id, key, and a couple dollars in my sock, which is gross.

bethiesny I have the same problem! Last time I got socks the woman looked at me funny when I said I wanted the kids size. She said the women's fit everyone. When I explained that my feet are small, then showed her on a regular pair and a kids pair it sure shut her up! I did find a sporting store that had a kids section and found socks there. Try a running store that had a big kids section.

Does anyone else think it's nuts that socks are supposed to fit women with size 4 feet all the way up to size 10? Every pair of socks I have are waaay too big for my feet (5 1/2). I buy girls' socks for regular socks, but when it comes to non-cotton/moisture-wicking socks, I can't find a single brand that makes them in a size small enough. I end up with a wad of sock (ha!) at my heel. Any suggestions?

$15 for socks? No thanks. I usually wear running shorts with a hidden pocket that I can put change in if I need it.
