Happy Thursday, friends! Are you all getting ready and gearing up for the long holiday weekend ahead? Well I’ve got a little something to make your day even sweeter – today I’m talking about my new, favorite running socks and offering you the chance to try them for yourself in a giveaway!
I am a pretty stubborn person; I’m sure my family would agree. I have a routine, and I like things to be done a specific way. One of the things I’m a stickler about is my feet. As a runner, your feet are pretty darn important! I always suck up the cost and buy new running shoes as soon as I think I start to need them. I incorporate specific stretches pre- and post-workout to make sure I stave off plantar fasciitis. And I always, always, ALWAYS wear running socks when I run.
I’m sure some people can get away with running in a normal sweat sock, but this girl is not one of them. Homegirl has some pretty flat feet and support is important!
So when I was offered the chance to try the Swiftwick ASPIRE sock, I jumped at the opportunity. It couldn’t have come at a better time – I’m about half way through training for my first full marathon and I go through workout wear faster than I can keep up with doing the laundry! I actually reviewed Swiftwick VIBE socks a while back and wore them during my first half marathon. I still have the VIBEs in my rotation, so it’s a testament to the quality of Swiftwick that running socks that have seen more than their fair share of use are still trucking along, like new, over a year later.
Now, onto the ASPIRE specifics! These are a super thin compression sock that helps support your foot’s arches. When you put them on, it feels like the sock is giving your foot a little hug, with nice compression between the toes and heel. These socks also feature seamless linked-toe technology, eliminating the socks from bunching at the front and causing blisters. The ASPIRE socks are outfitted with zoned climate channels which allow heat and moisture to be released, keeping your feet at a happy temperature. These socks are also sweat-wicking, and made from antimicrobial materials right here in America. It’s great to know that purchasing Swiftwick socks means supporting our own economy and workers.
Think the Swiftwick ASPIRE is a great fit for you? Of course you do! So make sure to enter the giveaway below to win three pairs of ASPIRE socks of your very own. One winner will be selected and notified by email at the end of the giveaway. Good luck!
