It is 19 degrees out. Even worse, with the wind chill, it is near negative temperatures. You have on 3 or 4 layers of clothing, 2 pairs of gloves, a Smartwool hat, a face mask, and a Buff around your neck. The water in the bladder of your Nathan HPL #20 is frozen. What are you wearing on your feet?
Well, if I want my feet to stay warm and moisture free, I wear Drymax Cold Weather Running Socks. In cold or freezing temperatures, moisture is a killer, pulling heat away from the skin, reducing skin temperature rapidly, and making feet more susceptible to not only frostbite, but to blisters. With a special Dual Layer Moisture Removal System, Drymax Cold Weather Running Socks instantly move moisture away from the skin to the outer absorbent layer, keeping feet dry, warm and comfortable in cold weather.
I simply love these socks. They have a snug fit, and despite the feel of a padded sock, they do not have an impact on the fit of my shoes. Even better, my toes remain toasty warm (as opposed to other sicks I've tried in cold weather, where my toes have that "frozen", uncomfortable sensation). An added bonus is that these socks are crew length (they go up the calf a bit), providing warmth to a larger area than mini-crew or ankle high socks.
If you want your feet to stay warm and blister free this winter, I would recommend giving a pair of Drymax Cold Weather Running Socks a go.
