NEW SOCKS ON THE BLOCK!-Steigen Sock Review

Check out our new range of running socks from Steigen Sport designed to feel like your not wearing socks at all! Well…..they are defiantly right there🔥 Our team members Georgie and Lucy both gave them a try, Georgie on trail, Lucy on road, here’s their thoughts…..

Georgie

“First impressions, loved the print but how can a sock seriously fit well with a large size scale of ​5-12uk​. First time on foot and the fit is impressive, snug round the mid foot with the heel cup hugging my heel in all the right places. The sock is very lightweight which isn’t usually my preference as I run off road in non-waterproof shoes, I usually like a warm thick sock to add comfort however these socks gave me everything I needed, my feet didn’t get cold, I didn’t feel uncomfortable at any point in my very muddy, wet run. I basically forgot totally that I had new socks on finishing my run very happy, blister and pressure point free! Great height to protect ankle and foot alike, I can’t wait for them to come back out the wash to wear again! Did I mention a super cool print! ”

Lucy

“I’m lover of socks, always have been, the funkier the better for me! So I was very excited to try these out. First impressions….awesome fit! I quite like the idea of ‘one size fits all’ I much prefer the looser fitting around my toes so they are not too constricted but still feeling snug enough to not cause unnecessary rubbing. They are extremely lightweight, not too thick, but enough cushioning in the right places. I didn’t even realise they were on my feet whilst running! A really great sock in my opinion, they come in all different lengths too so there’s one for everyone!”
