Why? I never ever get a blister anymore when walking, hiking, or just shopping (til I drop;-) when wearing Wright Socks. They REALLY are the best socks in the world. I have 8 pair that I've purchased over the years and I am still wearing them. I absolutely love my Wright Socks!
Back a few decades I would rollerblade and jog longer distances. The double layer socks from Wrightsock were critical to preventing blisters. The Stride Quarter Socks continue this tradition. They are double layer and keep my feet comfortable on my somewhat shorter trips.
After walking with just regular socks over four days at the Rose Parade, my daughter had a blister while I had none since I wore WrightSocks. Then when we were walking 5-7 miles a day siteseeing in England with all three of us wearing WrightSocks, my family agreed that the socks were a must have item. Now my daughter won’t walk in neighborhood or out shopping without them.
I used the stride quarter socks when I hiked the John Muir Trail 2 years ago and they were great. No blisters during the 17 days and 215 miles of hiking. I needed a new pair of stride quarter socks and thats why I made my recent purchase.
The socks are nice and wear well.
