Important Athletic Sock Features:

The two most important qualities for any athletic sock are fit and moisture-wicking. A good fit keeps socks from sliding and reduces friction which can cause blisters. Moisture wicking moves sweat away from your feet to the surface of the sock, keeping you dry. All Fox River socks are made with quality, moisture-wicking fibers, and designed to hug the foot around its many contours.
Fox River offers many different styles of athletic socks so you can choose which of the following features work for you:
Cushioning If your feet need extra shock absorption and/or greater durability, look for styles with cushioning in the sole, heel and instep.
Weight Generally, people prefer light weight socks for running and more cushioning for longer endeavors, such as walking, hiking or standing all day. Depending on the height of your instep, the fit of your shoes and the temperature of your sport, choose the weight of your sock to fit your preference.
Height With athletic socks, this is purely a personal preference. Most styles are available in crew length, quarter length and ankle.
Colors Choose the traditional plain, white athletic sock, or choose from a wide variety of colors and designs to suit how you roll. Whatever tickles your toes!
