Fitness Gear: Workout Performance Socks Are a Thing & They’re Legit!

If you regularly attend exercise or weights classes, you've probably noticed that knee-high workout socks are all the rage – and not just with teenagers. Turns out, knee-high performance socks got their start within the CrossFit community. Andrew Deters, marketing manager at Southern California-based Moxy Socks, says that Moxy Socks was inspired to create their "Deadlift" sock after hearing that when people go to dead lift weights, the barbell would scratch their shins.

"We took the construction of a ski sock, which is called full-cushion, and made that go from the mid-calf all the way up to the knee. So, the bottom half of the sock is very breathable and flexible, while the top is thick and essentially padded," Deters explains.

The styles are rad, the fabric is a blend of 85 percent Pima cotton, 9 percent nylon, 5 percent spandex and 1 percent polyester, and they do provide some compression on the calves, which and helps with blood flow during your workout. For less than $12 a pair, they are totally worth checking out, but look out, your kids will probably want a pair, too!

I am not surprised by this! I love my ski socks because of the padding. I have found some athletic socks with strategic padding on the soles, and they are my faves. Thanks for this, Belinda Lichty Clarke !
