Better Performance, One Foot at a Time

power-sox-the-edge.jpgAthletic socks are the red-headed stepchildren of the fitness apparel world. It’s a shame, really. I’ve seen it countless times; guys will drop bundles on moisture-wicking clothing and expensive sneakers, then they proceed to slip on a pair of plain cotton socks.

Blah. Here’s a news flash men: your feet are vital to your workout. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Gear Patrol has found socks specifically engineered, not only for high performance, but also for the respective feet they go on. The Edge by Power Sox comes equipped with Left/Right APF Technology, ventilation panels, and a moisture control technology call Sensura. Hmm, sounds a little like a high performance car.

The Edge Power Soxs are specifically engineered to match the specific contours of each foot. Selective cushioning allows for padding to be strategically placed only in key areas, providing essential shock absorption. Better fitting socks can cut down on blisters and other irritations caused when your foot slides around within your sneaker. If you’re going to invest in athletic attire, work from the inside out. After all, socks come in direct contact with your skin, and a cool, dry foot is a happy foot.

Cost: $9
