When we used to live in Brooklyn, I loved watching the NYC Marathon for the costumed runners whether it was a superhero or another recognizable character.
But since I took up running a few years ago (on and off the treadmill) I cannot imagine how someone can dress in a full body costume for a race. Before running a charity race all I'm thinking about is what to wear to be comfortable so I don't overheat.
Another concern of mine are my feet when I run. I don't want to get blisters or possible athlete's foot, so I'm careful about the socks I wear for a run with friends or a race.
Here's what makes them so good:
- Elastic ribbed band around the top and bottom of the foot for arch support to reduce foot fatigue
- Strategic cushioning for maximum shock absorption
- A mesh instep with ventilation channels (translation: no stinky feet when you get back in the car!)
- Extra thickness around the ankle for more comfort and stability
These socks are 98% Polyester and 2% Spandex. They have a Sock size range of 10-13 and fits a wide Men's shoe size range of 6-12. Like our knee-high superhero socks with capes, the price for a pair of these superhero performance crew socks is just $12.99 with free shipping in the US!
Take a closer look at each pair (and you can click on them to go to their product page).
