No. 10 - Icebreaker Run Micro

Wool? Yes, wool.  Merino wool is the main ingredient of the Icebreaker brand, incorporating the natural fiber into everything from underwear to slope-ready hoodies. The Run Micro sock is really comfortable, providing a cozy feel as you slide them on. Great for cold morning runs or all day wear.




No. 9 - Smartwool PHD Run Light Micro

This lightly cushioned sock is perfect for mild weather and shorter distances. High density impact zones are protected by ReliaWool Technology, so you're guaranteed a smooth ride.


No. 8 - New Balance Enhanced Cool Low Cut 

We're usually wary of any type of apparel that comes in a pack, but these New Balance socks make the cut with an ankle rise that isn't too high or low. With a comfort toe and a stability fit arch, these are a great deal.
