I love these socks, the keep your feet cool and they support your foot as well. I have run 2 trail runs in these socks and they were very comfortable and did not slip around in my shoes like some of the other socks do and end up bunching at your side or toe area and give you blister. These socks do not do that and I would highly recommend them to any runner for road running as well. I have run some shorter everyday running on the road and they are great for that as well.
I do love these shoes except for the lack of cushioning. I read a lot of reviews and many said to buy 1 size smaller so I took a chance and only ordered a half size smaller and I regret it! They run true to size for me and my toes do hit the end because I ordered a half size smaller than normal. I wish I would have gotten my normal 8.5. I think they would have been perfect. Love the lacing system; no need to stop to tie those laces, but if you do it is a quick fix. They provide great stability, arch support and traction and they breath in the heat. Great Pair of Shoes!
This is the best gel. Tastes just like honey, but also has B Vitamins to give you energy and is not one of those gels that lifts you way high fast and drops you on your face quickly. This energy lasts and is a smooth up and down where you do not even feel like you are being let down. Honey taste does not upset your stomach either. One teenage boy was throwing up from running so far and hard without any gels or water. My friend and I stopped to help him and gave him some water a a stinger honey gel and it picked him right back up after a couple of minutes and he finished the Half Marathon Trail Run. This stuff is great!
