Update on Experia by Thorlos Review

5 miles on the schedule today.  Actually I'm not on an schedule but let's just say there was 5 miles on it today.  First snowy; well, flurry run of the season.  I think Winter might be on the way.  Did my first run in the Wave Rider 16's - so far, so good.  My hip is still a little sore but doing ok.


I wanted to give you some additional feedback in regards to the review I did for the Experia socks by Thorlos.  You can read the review HERE.  Sometimes I receive some feedback from the company after my review.  Sometimes it's worth posting and I think these points are worth posting in regards to the cost of the socks at $17.50 a pair.  This is directly from the company:

Just a note on the price of the socks:
-        Since they are made with wool and silk, this makes for a pricier sock due to the cost of the fibers
-        It is a 100% American made sock, with all manufacturing done in NC.  In the USA, we have to adhere to stricter manufacturing policies, plus pay American wages, which all add to the cost of the sock.
-        Also, can you put a price on excellent foot protection?
-        These socks will last for years, so in the long run, they actually cost less because you don’t have to continue to buy more pairs as replacements!

All points are well taken and I'm so glad they pointed them out.  In addition, I also wanted to let you know that Thorlos is having their semi-annual sale so if you purchase 3 pairs, you get one free.  This puts the cost down to $13.13 a pair - certainly more in range with good quality socks.

You can check out their sale, HERE.  Sale ends 12/31/12.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
