When I was offered the chance to review some of PowerSox technical socks I was stoked! I have only ever heard great things about them and I don’t want to spoil anything but I wasn’t let down – their socks are great!

PowerSox with Lo

I was sent 4 pairs in two different colours of their Thick and Thin Colour Block Liner Socks and I kid you not I have been in them since I got them. All the time. Even when not exercising.

PR in my PowerSox

* Unfortunately you can’t really tell that I’m wearing my PowerSox, but I wore them for the Santa Shuffle, and my last 10k and basically every time I ran :) 

I am actually wearing these socks as I type this and my feet feel cozy and warm. These are a spectacular sock! I really enjoyed them, so much so that I’ll definitely be buying more when they finally ship to Canada!

YAY PowerSox

What I liked LOVED:

  • Loved the added cushioning in the toe box and heel. Even though it compressed as I wore mine you can definitely still feel it forming to your foot.
  • The above makes these socks SUPER COMFY!
  • Pretty looks and colours aside these socks were made to perform! I ran every run and race in them (even over my TC compression socks for added warmth in the cold weather) and they never chafed me once!
  • No blisters! – and no slide down. <— runners you know what I mean, ever had those ankle socks that just won’t stay up? these are NOT them :)
  • Arch support band is similar to all other technical socks and performs the same.
  • Feels seem free and material is nice both inside and out!
  • Wicks away sweat like a pro! I have had no odor issues, no chafing issues and no sweat issues. Performance is top notch!

inside and out

* outside is smooth and slick and inside is fluffy and comfy! much different than other tech socks that are the same both inside and out. 

SERIOUSLY – my most favourite socks I’ve ever had on my feet! Both technical and non.

both socks

Normally I have a what I didn’t love section but I’m scrapping here. This is a GREAT product. Which makes my job a lot easier :) So if I’m completely honest….

What I didn’t love:

  • The material balled a bit when washed however – only in one of my pink pairs.

bit of balling

I have no clue whether it was just that pair or if perhaps those are the ones I’ve been wearing the most – as I kid you not: I’ve been wearing them all every day for this past month!! It should be noted that I have also been tossing mine in the dryer to dry fully – not low tumble as specified. * bonus they don’t shrink like Wright Socks :) YAY!!!!

Bottom Line: I think the Thick and Thin Colour Block Liner PowerSox are a great choice for runners. They provide nice cushioning in both the toe and heel while maintaining the performance standard in the industry: wicking away sweat and staying put while knocking back the miles. A great pick for anyone who prefers to have their cake and eat it too! These socks are looking after your feet so you don’t have to. I LOVED them!

  1. I would probably choose the cute grey and pink! :)

    And can I just say I love socks that go over the ankle so nicely like that! Biggest pet peeve is when they fall down and I get blisters back there! AGH!

  2. I asked for socks for Christmas (it’s good to aim low and then you’ll never be disappointed). My boys got me some but they got the wrong size. Seriously? How hard is it to look in my shoes before you go shopping to find out the size. I guess they tried at least.

  3. Your review has me ready to go buy a pair anyway, so winning some would be awesome! I’d pick the blue/green ones just because they’d match a good portion of my running gear!

  4. oops, for some reason read the Facebook thing as the mandatory entry…
    Anyways, hmmm, tough choice but I guess I’ll go with pink since it will look better with my sneakers when I win 😉

  5. These socks look and sound great. If I were to win I would love the Blue pair. I love everything blue, it’s my favorite color. I also liked PowerSox on FB 😉
