I’m interrupting my amazing summer break with the kids for a post to show off the perfect summer socks from DeadSoxy!
A few weeks ago, I received a couple of free pairs of DeadSoxy sock to review. I thought they were a brand of men’s socks, but I was mistaken, they also carry socks for women as well as kids. Although I’ve heard of the brand before, this was the first time I get to try them. It was love at first sight!
These socks don’t just carry a cute catchy name, all of DeadSoxy socks look bright and fun. If you like socks with personality, go ahead and check them out (here is their link)
I received the Porter and the Neco socks, both selling for $14 online. These are also no-show socks, which is my favorite type of socks to wear. I prefer to go barefoot as much as I can in the summer, but when I need to wear shoes, I always slip on a pair of socks, preferably the no-show kind.
The socks I received were composed of 75% Bamboo, 20% Polyester and 5% Elastane, which makes for a very lightweight thin sock that is perfect to wear during the summer. They also contain a little grip at the heel to prevent them from slipping.
To test them, I wore them around the house and took them on several of my training runs, even though they are not marketed as running socks. I even wore a pair on my most recent race; Iron girl Canada (race report coming soon).
Here’s what I noted about my DeadSoxy socks:
- They are thin and breathable, which is perfect for hot summer days
- They have a very low profile and work great for a variety of shoes (perfect for Vans or Sperrys or Sketchers a in my case)
- They are comfortable
- They don’t slip (but just in case, they offer the following warranty “If they slip they’re free!”)
- They didn’t cause blisters
So, if you love fun looking socks that are also functional and at a decent price to boot, then, I’m happy to recommend DeadSoxy. They would make a great birthday present or perfect for stocking stuffers! If you agree with me, then save the image below onto Pinterest for later reference!
