One of the first pieces of gear that I pack for my obstacle course races are my Swiftwick socks and compression arm sleeves. Depending on the OCR, I either wear the ASPIRE FOUR's or the VISION TWELVE's. These socks are priceless when it comes to competing at the elite level for me. They help protect my legs from sharp rocks when crawling on the ground under barbed wire, rope climbs and rope traverse that are usually seen in races. The VISION TWELVE's also helps keep my calves from cramping. Can't say enough awesome stuff about your socks. I have also worn your compression arm sleeves. First race I wore then in helped me find a place on the podium for 3rd place. Swiftwick will always be with me on race day for now on!

The long compression socks are wonderful as I'm an avid MTB Racer and Rugby player. They help a great deal as my calves cramp in long distance races or at the 70 minute mark during a Rugby Match, but not anymore with the Swiftwicks. Great durable material.

I am training for my first ultramarathon. I have had previous experience with running, triathlon, and adventure races. I don't have anyone around me that does ultras. People always ask me why and tell me I'm crazy. Oh Well!!! I do 99.9% of my training alone. I am field testing everything from food, clothes, gear- everything! Socks have been a big issue. There were no socks that were keeping my feet blister and hot spot free. I went on a mission and I starting trying all types of socks randomly. I picked up 2 pairs of Swiftwicks at a running store. And I LOVE them! I didn't know anything about the sock and I had to go on the website and figure out what I even have purchased. I have been wearing the aspire 2s and vibe 2s. I have fished them out of the hamper in desperation! These are great socks and I am recommending them to everyone.

I bought a pair of long socks recently at a 24 hour adventure race in hopes of preventing some calf cramps later in the race, (I have had problems with that in the past). I didn't a single cramp the entire race and I couldn't have been happier!!! I'm sold!

I received a pair of Swiftwick Performance Zeros from a friend in the spring of 2011 and immediately contacted Swiftwick to find the closest retailer near me. Racing Ironman events requires detail and dedication, and I look for the same characteristics with all products I use. I wore the Aspire Zero to a podium finish at Ironman Wisconsin and Kansas 70.3 in 2011. The way this sock quickly fits to my fit saves precious transition time and prevents any uncomfortable feelings in my feet. Plus the compression foot bed simply feels great.

I recently sent a few pair of Pursuit 7 socks to our son-in-law who is serving with US Army Special Operations in Afghanistan. He had been commenting on long hours in an extremely cold climate. Well, he got the Pursuits and declared "These are the best damn socks I have ever worn! - Send more!" Thought you might like to know your products are helping those who serve.

I recently went and was fitted for my first pair of running shoes. I purchased Brooks Glycerin 9 and have been happy with them. While at Fleet Feet Sports in Scherereville IN, I inquired about socks. If they would have an effect on how my run goes. After speaking with the sales associate and deciding to try out a few different brands of socks, I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I am with the Swiftwick brand! They have made my shoes much better! They stay in place and don't shrink or wear out. I will only buy Swiftwick brand socks from this day on.

Swiftwick socks reduce peripheral edema, dampen vibration, increase vascular return, cool in hot weather, warm in cold weather.

I have tried wearing all sorts of socks over the years. To say I'm obsessed with running, cycling, triathlon, adventure racing would be an understatement. I have tried socks with individual toes, expensive "cutting-edge technology" socks, all to be completely disregarded as soon as I tried my first pair of Swiftwick socks. I remember, it was about 7 months ago several days before a 12 hour adventure race and I forgot a pair of socks to change out of. I went to my local bike shop who had just began carrying them so I gave them a shot. Well...after 12 hours...I didn't need a sock change once I put on the Swiftwicks. They stayed compressed, comfortable and down-right amazing. Our 2 man team placed 2nd overall and although much of that was due to our obsessed training, I'll attribute the rest to my new Swiftwicks :) Thanks for everything!!

With the long term impact on joints for a competitive disc golf player, I have come to rely on the Swiftwick PURSUIT line FOUR merino wool socks during my rounds on the courses. Having rolled my left ankle so many times in competition, usually on the follow through of my back hand right hand drives, I love the compression support around the ankle, as much as the pure comfort of the sock while walking the various terrains encompassed by disc golf courses

At CheckPoint Tracker Nationals in KY, I wore a pair of Swiftwick Pursuits while on my feet for about 42hrs. My feet felt like they were in a fresh pair of comfy socks the whole time. I feel in love with these socks, bought a few more pair and now they are my go-to socks.

So unlike must people, I pay attention to the clothing I wear and how it makes me feel/perform. I’ve always bought some name brand FOREIGN manufacture product, not naming names but we all know who they are. They are companies that promise one thing and mostly don't come through with that promise. There I was, sitting in my box (aka. CrossFit gym), when a shipment of Swiftwicks came in. So of course, it being new and looking pretty cool, I grabbed a pair and threw them on. "Testing time" I thought to myself. I immediately knew this was not just a sock. What I just slipped on my feet was a pair of superman socks! These things are ridiculously awesome! I will immediately be taking my other socks to goodwill and will be purchasing Swiftwick! Do yourself a favor and don't buy just one pair, buy ten. Support a company that stands by its products and is in AMERICA!.

I was initially buying minimalist shoes for Crossfit training when the salesman at Running Central recommended them. I hadn't heard of Swiftwick, but decided to give them a try. I was really surprised how much they keep my feet cool and dry during workouts. They're great!

I received a promo set of your sleeves and socks a few days before the USARA National Championship Race. I have never tried anything new in a race without training in them first, but after trying on your gear I was sold and raced in them. Your products are by far superior to everything I have used in the past. After the USARA race my team went to the Checkpoint Tracker Race and we all used your gear. Everyone agreed that you products were great. Thanks for your support!

I became a big fan when I received my socks and sleeves for the Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing Championships. I went for a 20 mile run the weekend I got them and have been sold on Swiftwick products since then. I now have two pairs of sleeves and 5 pairs of socks! I like to let others borrow them so they can experience greatness! I am looking forward to trying some socks while wrestling!
