SLS3 recently reached out to me with the opportunity to try out their running socks. As you may be aware, I have reviewed items for SLS3 before and loved them, so I was excited about the opportunity to try out another of their products.
According to SLS3, the running socks were developed on a 3D foot model for a better fit. The fabric used is an antimicrobial fiber to prevent odor causing baceria. The socks also contain an instep hugging band for a snug fit – you can see it in the photo above with the horizonal striping going from the in step to the top of the foot.
All that is great but let’s get to what I thought actually wearing them!
The sizing chart on the amazon page says that womens size 7-9 should choose size small, and that’s just what I did (since I typically wear a 7.5 in running shoes). The size I chose was perfect for me, so I would reccomend following the sizing chart to help choose your correct size.
The first time I put them on my immediate thought was how SOFT they are! They are clearly a mositure-wicking material, but they are so much softer than some of the other brands of running socks I own.
I wore them on two runs – the first was 3 miles long, the second was 5 miles.
I loved the fact that the fabric goes higher on the heel to prevent your shoe rubbing on your heel. I also loved that they were thin but not too thin. They fit very comfortably and didn’t move as I ran, which is a must with running socks in order to prevent blisters.
I have sent them through the washer and dryer twice and they have maintained their softness and stretch.
So, in conclusion, I love these running socks – even more so than the other “major” brands of running socks I own. I plan to use them as regularly as my laundry cycling will allow (ha!) and will be buying more as I need to replace some older pairs.
If you want to try out the SLS3 running socks you can purchase them on amazon here and use the code “DKJIJERK” to get $5 off a 3-pack, bringing the total down to around $20.
If you give them a try let me know what you think!
