Swiftwick Socks Review
With so many sock companies entering the sock market, it has made buying a pair of socks almost as bad as shopping for a car. We’ve tested a number of different sock brands and a few have stood out, one of them being Swiftwick. One of the features that sets Swiftwick apart from many other sock brands is its quality stitching. While many socks are made with a 100 needle count, Swiftwick decided to use a 200 needle count that helps with durability and gives your foot an extremely snug, yet comfortable fit. One of the socks we tested from Swiftwick included the Zero Merino, which is a sock that sits just below the ankle and is made of 60% merino wool, 30% nylon, and 10% lycra. We liked this sock best for cooler weather while pounding the road or trail with our running shoes. This Zero Merino retails for $12.95/pair and can be purchased at Swiftwick.com
We also tested out the Zero OLE which is like the Zero Merino, but without the wool, making it thinner and lighter! The OLE of is made of 80% nylon, 15% olefin, and 5% lycra. With the combination of these fabrics, the Zero OLE is super breathable and has excellent moisture management. The OLE is a compression sock, but it is important to not mix this up with the term gradient compression. Overall, we were very pleased with the Swiftwick brand of socks and recommend you give them a try next time you’re in the market for a pair of socks. They have a full line of socks to meet your specific activity needs.
