Saturday superstar Michael Robertson took his new run.com branded socks for the spin this weekend and here is what he had to say:
“Now, it just so happens that there’s a new kid on the block when it comes to the running sock game. The parent company of Greater Boston Running Company, Running Specialty Group (RSG), has come out with its own line of RunCo socks. The socks come 3 to a pack in 3 different colors so, if you’re like me and like to make sure you’re well-coordinated from head to toe, you’re in luck. In addition to the different colors, there are different fits as well, ranging from the low-cut performance sock to a taller crew sock, with a double-tab in between. One thing they all have in common, they’ll keep your feet drier than cotton socks and make you less prone to blisters. I personally just completed a run in the performance low-cut sock, which is 85% polyester, 15% spandex, polyester being the wicking fiber at play in the sock. Being a size 10, I wore the large size sock. I know, I know, I shouldn’t brag. I was pleased that the socks fit true to size, with everything being where it should in terms of toes and heels. One thing you will notice immediately is the snug arch wrap of the sock. This feature seems to be gaining popularity among the more “technical” socks on the market and helps just give a touch more arch support than you’d have otherwise. I think I have a “high-volume” (read “fat”) foot, so at first this section felt like it might get uncomfortable after time, but I didn’t notice it after I put my shoe on.”
