Fits sock review

Almost a month ago I received a couple of new pairs of socks from Fits for a review.  Here's what I received:

They are two entirely different materials.  The one on the left, the Light Runner Tech, is made with Coolmax.  The one on the right, the Ultra Light Runner, is made with Merino Wool.

I'm always one to try out new products if they fit with the blog and these certainly fit since they are geared towards runners.  I also love trying out new brands of socks even though I have socks that I enjoy.  Maybe I'd like some new ones better?  Unfortunately, in this case, while I can applaud the company for making the socks with the right material for runners, they did not work for me.

Here's a couple pictures that sum up why they were not for me.  As you can see they have a very unusual shape to them.  That in itself is not really a big deal for me as long as they fit my foot correctly.
The issue that I had with them was how they actually fit on your foot.  They are comfortable in the heel.  They are comfortable around your foot and stay in place.  They are NOT comfortable by the top of the toes.  As you can see below, when I put them on, because of the odd shape, there is quite a bit of extra material there.

While I cannot really say why they designed them this way, I can feel it while running.  I don't want to feel like I'm wearing socks when running.  I want my socks to be comfortable and feeling extra material leads to blisters.  Blisters are not my friend and therefore, they didn't work for me.
On a positive note, I love that they are made in the USA.  Retail price is $14.99-17.99 depending on style.  Interested in learning more about socks?  Maybe they will work for you?

  2. The toe is weird looking. That is what the toe on my handmade socks look like and well, those aren't for running. I have been running in some merino wool socks lately, and loving them. We shall see how that goes as summer heats up! Thanks for the review.
