SofSole sent me a complementary package with two types of insoles and some socks under the condition that I try them out and write about them. Herewith we shall evaluate these medium-weight performance socks.
Initial impression: For "cushioning" socks, not so much. Soft, with some obvious "engineered" areas for compression/support and ventilation, sort of like Drymax's running line. They are thinner than I usually like, and don't seem like they will be very "springy" or abrasion-resistant. I'm not running much lately, but I'll give them some walking time in various running shoes. They also have some "moisture management" claims, although I don't have too much trouble with sweaty feet - I'll compare them to the Drymax and my usual heavyweight cotton runners.
Here endeth Lesson 1.
