Feetures socks

Well, if you follow my blog, you should know previously I was suffering pain on my feet whenever I did a longer run (anything that is more than 12km).
My friend wantet recommended to try Feetures socks. I was doubtful. Seriously I do not think the socks is the main reason I am suffering great pain after the run and I even was limping on that time.
She bought me a pair of feetures socks and I tried it with a short run of 10km. Still ok. The socks gave me the compression on my feet. That's what I commented on it.
After a week, I tried again with distance 18km. I was so surprise, as I no longer suffer the pain on the upper part of my feet near the ankle. (I think it's call plantar or what). Again I do not believe is the socks that play a part. But, there was nothing changed. Same running clothing, same diet, same mileage, same shoes, same route. The only different is the socks. The socks, it's really hug my feet and have me a good compressions. I wonder is that the reason that help in my blood circulation and reduce the impact on my weak feet?! Probably.
I bought myself another pair of the socks.  Well, one is quick enough to dry before I can run again. Now I have two of feetures socks. They served me well. I never tried to buy any running socks. Previously I was running with a normal socks that selling about 3 pairs sgd12.90. The feetures, I got it as a gift from my friend for the first pair and second pair I bought it durin gather ocbc cycling expo with promotions price of sgd22 and they let me finished my 18km Energizer Trail Run with no blisters or feet injury. Yes, it's consider as quite expensive for me for just a pair of socks. But, if the socks serve me well and able to make me clock the mileage I am looking forward too. Well, seems its still worth the investment. (Only buy 1 or 2). I do hope the retailer can bring in more colors as I saw from Facebook the feetures socks have wide range of nice colors.
Thank you feetures. I hope it can bring to me my first full marathon and follow by my first ultra trail run.
