As we all know, it's important to choose the right kind of socks to wear with your shoes. Depending on the type of shoes you wear, you definitely want the right style of socks most comfortable for your shoes and activity. Decide how high you want the socks to come up on your ankle, and then try them on with your shoes to see how they look. Most running shoes are quite light feeling, so do you prefer heavier socks for shock absorbing or lightweight socks for that faster feeling on your feet. Do you need ankle support or no ankle support? Some of the most important attributes of an athletic sock are moisture management, cushioning and dissipation of friction. The primary role of socks is to protect your foot from the running shoe itself. I think you will find DeFeet has socks for all your activities.
