Wigwam Socks Review

Disclaimer: I received Wigwam socks to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Let's talk socks!  They see so simple right? You put them between your feet and your shoes and off you go...except it never seems to be quite that easy.  It doesn't help that there are about a million styles of socks on the market so trying them all can be exhausting and a financial strain.

While I have never had a real problem with the socks I wear for running (at least not on the level of people that end up with massive blisters, missing toenails, etc.) I had also never found a pair that I really really loved.  So, when I got the chance to try something new  as a BIbRave Pro I was excited for the opportunity.

Wigwam gave me the opportunity to try out the Lightning Pro low-cut socks ultralight.  It's like they read my mind on sock preference because I love thin socks with just a little more thickness in the bottom which is exactly how these are!

Now I am a new sock lover.  If I was rich I would wear a new pair of socks every day.  There is just something so nice about putting on a new, clean pair of socks.  Am I weird or do other people feel this way too?

Obviously I put these on to run in a few minutes after I got them in the mail and I like to think I put them through their paces right from that first run.  It's Central Florida and I was running after noon so of course it was hot, humid, and raining.  If bad things are going to happen to your feet that is prime weather for it.  I was beyond thrilled with these socks.  My shoes were soaked through but the Wigwam socks were thin enough that they did not give you that "soggy sock sensation." If you run in the rain you know what I mean.  If you don't run in the rain, lucky you I guess haha.

Just to make sure it wasn't the new sock obsession coloring my opinion, I continued to wear my Wigwam socks for runs throughout the week and just loved them more and more even as they began to look less and less new.

 I like that they are thin and do not add bulk inside my shoes since my feet are wide and my shoes tend to be snug.  The mesh on the top also helps to keep my feet cool in the not so fall like weather.  And after many many wet runs there is still no chafing or blistering!  What more can you ask for in a running sock?

Overall I highly recommend these socks (psst did you notice the love them for 2 years guarantee?) especially if you like a thinner sock that lets your foot get some fresh air.
