Final Update Swiftwick Aspire Compression Socks

Swiftwick Aspire Compression Socks
My daughter and I at the start of our backpacking trip to the Walls of Jericho in north Alabama.

Over 100 miles of hiking and hours of wearing the Aspire socks at work have shown me these socks are the real deal.  The socks are comfortable with a nice level of compression.  The socks have also proven to be durable even after high mileage from long summer running to backpacking in California and Alabama.  Click HERE for my final thoughts on these Swiftwick Aspire Socks.

Ever wonder what a  toesock might look like.   Think glove sock and you are on the right track because each toe has its own, shall we say, pocket it fits in.  According to Ininji, this translates into better performance by allowing the foot to perform naturally and freely inside any shoe, much like going barefoot.  Injinja says a toesock is more like wearing a glove while regular socks are more like a mitten, so while regular socks are warmer, the toe socks allow for more dexterity.  They also claim that having each toe in its own compartment helps eliminate hotspots, blisters, moisture buildup and transfer of fungal conditions.  To read the rest of the review click here.
