Swiftwick offers USA-made, high performance compression socks for runners. These thin, light-weight socks will keep your feet dry and comfortable. Each sock offers compression to improve blood flow and circulation as you run.
I received two pairs of socks for testing and review. The no-show minimal sock called the Aspire Zero, and an above-the-ankle sock for colder days called the Pursuit Four. Each has distinctive qualities in terms of warmth and padding, and both offer compression.
The Swiftwick Aspire Zero has a minimalist feel to it. The sock is light, tight, and easily forgotten once you slip your shoes on. The seam is high enough to stay out-of-the-way, and didn’t cause me any irritation. The compression felt good around my arches when running. This is a sock that will see a lot of use in the warmer weather and on the track.
The Swiftwick Pursuit Four is a great sock for the cooler days here in New England this time of year. It’s made with Merino wool and provides some extra warmth and padding to keep your feet dry and comfortable. The wicking properties of the Pursuit Four kept my feet dry and warm during an early morning run when the temperatures dipped into the upper 30’s. I can’t wait to add them to my snowshoe racing kit this winter.
