Running & Walking Socks

One of the most important components to successful running and walking is having good fitting, high performance, non-cotton socks. Technical socks will wick moisture from your feet, and they won't chafe like natural fibers do. This means that you'll have less of a chance of getting blisters or calluses. The more comfortable your feet are, the better your running and walking workouts will be!

At Fleet Feet Mahwah, you'll find a selection of the finest socks available from Balega, Feetures, Fitsok and Injinji. In fact, socks are so important, that when we fit you for shoes, we put you in one of ours! Your feet will never feel better!

Five Fast Foot Facts 

These will make you think twice about wearing cotton socks! 

  1. At rest the foot releases 1/4 cup of perspiration each day!
  2. On a 5 mile run, your feet produce enough sweat to fill an 8 oz. glass.
  3. 55% of foot perspiration evaporates through the shoes upper. The other 45% is absorbed in the sock and footbed!
  4. Two TRILLION bacteria live on your feet. That's 12% of all the bacteria on the human body!
  5. The naked foot temperature is 94 degrees. The non-active foot in a shoe is 105-125 degrees — this temperature only increases with activity.
