I have been running in Swiftwick socks for over a year now. Swiftwick claims, “We make the best socks you will ever wear…GUARANTEED!” The first time I got a pair to test out, I thought to myself, that is a very bold statement. After testing out the ASPIRE socks, I was a believer in what Swiftwick was claiming (click here for my past review of the ASPIRE). I then tested out the PURSUIT and VIBE socks and was even more impressed, especially with the PURSUIT’s merino wool (click here for my past review of the PURSUIT and VIBE).
I received a pair of the brand new MAXUS ZERO to test out. The number references the height of the sock. The sizes range from a ZERO, which is below the ankle to a TWELVE, which is over the calf.
The MAXUS is their “Maximum Cushion” sock, hence the name. It is for runners who want a cushioned sock, which I prefer over really thin socks. It offers amazing comfort while still providing moisture wicking, Swiftwick’s “Managed Compression” and blister free performance. The “Managed Compression” prevents bunching and hot spots by supporting all 3 arches in your foot (I had no idea we have 3 arches). They also utilize their “Linked-Toe” technology to prevent bunching in the toe-box. Basically, your socks will stay where they should without moving around, and it really does work that way.
When Swiftwick says that these are their plushest sock yet, and they weren’t kidding. While I really liked the amount of cushion, my favorite part was how soft and comfortable the MAXUS was from the moment I put them on. They felt so good, I almost didn’t want to run in them (just kidding).
I slipped on the MAXUS and headed out for a 6-mile run. It was supposed to be an easy run, but my feet felt so good, I ended up doing a tempo run. The socks stayed in place and even with the temperature being hot and muggy, my feet stayed cool and dry.

I am a believer in Swiftwick socks, without a doubt. They are extremely durable and will last for quite a while. They are made in the USA and use the best materials and technologies available to create a superior product.
Give them a try and let me know what you think. What do you have to lose? If you don’t like them, Swiftwick will buy you a pair of your favorite socks as a replacement. You can buy them starting at $12.99 on the Swiftwick website or at your local retailer. They also have various other sizes and several colors to choose from. The MAXUS is just one more example of why Swiftwick makes some of the best socks in the industry.
