Now, onto the Thorlo Experia socks...if you were with us last week (I feel like I'm doing a hushed voiceover for a soap opera, lol), you might have seen my write up of the Thorlo Experia socks that I bought, where I later discovered that I am not in the target age range to whom these socks are marketed. I joked about it, and somehow Tracy from Thorlo found my post and left me a comment explaining the socks and their marketing. She also issued me a challenge to try them out and post a review, which sounded like a fun thing to do!
I wore them for the first time on my GLOW Fun Run. I have to say that they worked perfectly for me in that I didn't notice them while I was running. Of course, I couldn't feel my toes, either...but that's because they had practically frozen while we were waiting to get started! About a mile into the run, they finally thawed out. But that's neither here nor there with regard to the Experias - had I wanted socks to keep my toes warm, I would have worn a pair of wool socks - but that would be kinda weird to run in. Anyway, they felt great - nice and cushy on the heel and ball of my foot, and the middle part that was tight over the arch was great - not too tight, but definitely supportive. Plus they looked cute - what can I say, I am that superficial!
Just to be sure, I wore them again on Sunday when I went for my recovery run (ooh, another running term). Once again, they worked perfectly - no bunching underfoot and yet they weren't so tight as to be uncomfortable. I like them. In fact, I give them SIX Toes Up!
Disclaimer: These are not Thorlo socks...you might recognize these rainbow feet from this post!
Now here's the fun part: Tracy has kindly offered to give a pair of Experia socks to one lucky reader! To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know what's the farthest you've ever run at one time...no distance is too short! Giveaway will close at 10pm CST on Thursday, March 4; I'll draw the winner using random.org and post it on Friday. Good luck, everybody!!!
FCC Disclaimer: Giveaway will be fulfilled by Thorlo, who will also be sending me a pair of socks as well. Review of said socks is all my opinion.
