Goodhew Sock Review
Normally, we like to review products for a month or so in various activities, weather, terrain, etc., and then write up a review for posting. This time around, I decided to take a different approach when it came to reviewing a pair of socks. Almost all new socks feel amazing for the first couple of wear, however, not all socks hold up to the test of time and a lot can be said if the sock is still comfy after 6 months.
I have had a pair of Goodhew Sport Footies and Sedona Micros since early last spring. I have worn them in the heat of the summer, on high altitude runs & hikes, and around town. They have probably undergone at least 25 washings because I like to do laundry! Both pairs of Goodhews have stood up to my new 6 month challenge and continue to be a sock I look for in the drawer.
The Sedona Micro, featured in the photo above, has been a top performer. First off, I really like that the Sedona socks are available in crew, quarter, and micro styles. I am a big fan of being able to get the same great quailties in a variety of differet ways. The Sedona is made of a 47% Lambswool, 31% Stretch Nylon, 18% Alpaca, 4% Spandex. These socks are rated as medium volume, but to me they feel super soft and plush when you first put them on thanks to the fine weaving of the fabric. These socks have paneling to aid with ventilation and also feature mild arch support. I have worn these socks for runs of up to 4 hrs and have had no complaints.
The Sport Footie is a medium weight sock from Goodhews’ athletic line. They are composed of 36% merino wool, 36% Coolmax, 23% stretch nylon, and 5% spandex. This sock has an instep vent panel, reinforced heel, and flat toe seam, which are all great features for high intensity exercises such as running. I have the Sport Footie in black and also in white and have to admit that on a sunny day the medium weight black sock is a bit much and my toes are really toasty. However, the fabric combo does provide good moisture management. After 25 plus washings they still look like new.
