Wicking Socks All Active Women Need

Your feet take a lot of abuse from all the pounding, stomping, kicking and leaping you do. It is a fact that if you are on the move, your feet are too. This means they get hot. This means they get sweaty. All that extra moisture can cause some nasty blisters. Cotton socks stay wet, so you need socks made out of merino wool, which wicks. The wool pulls moisture away from your skin, keeping your feet dry and comfy.

Here are some of my favorites made by Darn Tough and Smartwool. You can choose the amount of thickness and cushion you need, and the height of sock. All the pairs come in some wonderful colors too, many more than the ones shown here.

I'm very interested in these socks. Do you know if I can purchase them at a department store or do they only sell them online?

I really like bamboo socks. They're super soft, don't induce blisters, and have anti-bacterial properties that mean they don't stink up the laundry bin so much.

Yes, these merino wool socks can be washed and dried like cotton ones. I find that they are more durable too.

Those micro wool running socks look neat. I've been looking for some good wicking running socks for the winter, since all my socks are just regular old cotton and they hang on to sweat and smell way too much. I wonder if those wool socks can be machine washed and dried like regular socks?
