Top 5 fitness socks: a shopping guide

How to choose the fitness socks best suited to your needs

To practice any type of sport, from running to the gym, from trekking to simple walking, it is essential to choose the right shoe, but also a pair of socks designed and studied to be able to move at best and in maximum comfort. Fitness socks need to be manufactured with appropriate materials and of excellent quality, to last over time, protect properly the foot and offer additional support - in addition to that from the shoe - during physical activity or more intense exercises. Before purchasing it is therefore important to acquire as much information as possible about the type of used materials, fabrics and technical characteristics.

What charateristics should fitness socks have?


Fitness socks, and in general sports socks, must bind the foot without tightening, accompanying and facilitating the natural movement during physical activity. To ensure maximum functionality and practicality, the right length should be chosen and should not have too narrow elastic edges and cuffs that could cause discomfort and redness or prevent proper circulation. In order not to make mistakes, before proceeding to the purchase, take into consideration these factors of well-being:

  • Cushioning and support: fitness socks are designed to minimize the points of friction between the foot and the shoe and ensure adequate protection, by cushioning strokes and rubbing (thus avoiding the possible formation of blisters and/ or abrasions). They must then support the foot and stabilize the support, allowing greater adherence to the ground. In addition, for the foot to be more comfortable and free opts for a sock soft and protective, better if padded on the front and heel, even better if equipped with reinforced insole and breathable sponge Dryarn as socks line Active 1177.
  • breathability and thermoregulation: to ensure level performance and keep the foot dry, gym or fitness socks must be made with highly breathable materials, that are able to absorb sweat and manage moisture. If you want to achieve excellent results in every season of the year, preferably select socks in 100% breathable technical fabric and, when necessary, equally insulating, that keep the foot warm in winter and cool in summer.
  • slipping: in the practice of sport, socks must ensure maximum grip and prevent the foot from slipping forward. Before purchasing, carefully evaluate the fitting and shape of the socks, do not forget to try the size . The sock is the base layer of the skin of the foot, protects it from friction and from rubbing with the shoes: choosing a larger size can facilitate the sliding forward of the foot and cause the formation of blisters or abrasions.
  • odour control and antibacterial properties: functionality directly proportional to the ability of the sock to keep the foot dry. If the fabric dries quickly (ie breathes), the growth of bacteria responsible for odor formation is hindered. To do fitness in peace without having to worry about unpleasant smells, choose sports socks made of materials with breathable and antibacterial properties, such as yarn Dryarn.
