While socks may not seem like a fun gift, some people love socks. Giving a runner a pair of quality running socks is a way to support their passion for fitness. You also give them a practical gift that you know they will use. They may think of you when they wear them and be motivated to reach their goals to make you proud of them.
If you are thinking socks really can be a fun gift, the next step is selecting a good quality brand. Wearing thin socks may result in a runner’s heal being squeezed between the sole of their sneaker and the sock or the heel of the sneaker and cause painful blisters. Regularly wearing inexpensive, poor quality socks can ruin a training regime; blisters may become so severe that the runner is forced to take a break from running.
The good news is there is a brand of running sock that is excellent quality: Pure Athlete. Pure Athlete socks are tested by top athletes for quality assurance. They are no show, making runners able to wear novelty socks with every outfit without clashing colors or patterns. A heel tab prevents the socks from slipping down into the sneaker like most no show socks tend to do. The fabric is also manufactured with odor fighting technology to prevent the socks from smelling after a work out, and holding onto odors after frequent use. Pure Athlete socks are also reinforced in the heel and toe areas to help prevent blisters from forming they are worn.
Pure Athlete offers a variety of novelty running socks. These socks are unisex, able to be wore by anyone who takes a liking to a particular pattern. These fun socks for runners are available in multiple novelty patterns such as: paint splatter, donuts, tropical pineapples, flamingos, American flags, anchors, and lobsters.
Fun running socks are an appropriate gift for any occasion:
- If you are looking for a gift to support a couple trying to get in shape, a matching set of novelty running socks is an excellent choice.
- If the recipient is someone who counts calories and is into fitness, the donut running socks are a great gift, signifying the bonus calories they earned from their run!
- Many marathons are held with a theme. You may have heard of the marathons where runners are sprayed with paint as they run, which would make the paint splatter running socks the perfect gift to show your support of their participation.
