Hear what others have to say about Sockwell
I have been very impressed with the socks that I was able to try and I can tell you I will be back to buy more and while I am at it I will be picking up some socks and boxers for my husband. These would make great Christmas gifts for anyone on your list who likes comfort.
Goodhew makes a product that will rock your socks off....giving you cause to put on another pair of Goodhew's......that will also be rocked off.....a vicious (yet, deliciously comfortable) cycle.
I spent 4 days trekking in Peru, high in the Andes and into the edge of the Amazon Jungle. Of all the gear I hand-picked for this 36 mile trip with 7000 total feet of elevation gain and 5000 total feet of elevation loss, I was most impressed with my Taos Crew socks. I wore the same pair for the first 3 days of the hike...we hiked nearly 30 hours, often straight uphill or on unnerving downhill grades. Through all of that, my feet were kept warm at a misty/rainy 14,000 feet, and cool at a jungle-humid 8,500 feet. Prone to blisters, I had none on this trip...for that I'm incredibly thankful.
The first time I heard about the Goodhew/Sockwell line was at the 2015 Wild Trails Still Hollow 10k & Half Marathon. My wife and I were volunteering at the race, as we were in the middle of our 2015 Grand Slam of Ultrarunning adventure. As I'm getting ready to leave for the day I was told to grab something out of the grab box for volunteering. I started digging around and was immediately drawn to a pair of Sockwell Plantar Ease. A friend saw me admiring the pair and quickly asked if I ever struggled with Plantar Fasciitis (PF), well, running 100's of miles a month I was very accustomed to having PF issues. They swore up and down about how I would love these Plantar Ease socks and I should take them and give them a shot. I wore them the very next day on a run and continued wearing that same pair of socks day-in and day-out for the next 4-5 days, of course my wife made me wash them occasionally! I was sold on Goodhew/Sockwell after this one pair of socks and then finding out that they were a Chattanooga-based company was just icing on the cake. After trying out more of the Goodhew/Sockwell options I found that all of their product line met the needs for different aspects of my life. Depending on the situation, I've found a combination of Sockwell Plantar Ease Quarters and Compression Sleeves work well when I'm running 'long' trail races where my calves are going to feel the benefits of compression throughout the race but I may have to stop occasionally to remove my quarter socks to change into a fresh pair or simply re-apply foot creams. Sometimes a fresh pair of socks will feel like a God-send during a 100-mile trail race! For a race that's going to be less likely to require any foot attention during the race, then a good pair of Incline or Elevation Compression socks does the trick. Regardless of the race distance I've found that using a pair of the Elevation Compression for recovery immediately following any distance race significantly improves the mental and physical aspects of my recovery. This is true from as short of a race as a 10k to as long as a 100-mile trail race through the Colorado mountains. Having used many different brands of socks over the past few years I haven't found any higher quality manufacturer than the Goodhew/Sockwell lineup and definitely haven't found any other companies as willing to work with community to get them the products they need for their every day lives.

As a NICU & Pediatric Nurse, I initially began wearing Sockwells at work to help with my varicose veins. I had one pair and I washed them every day so they'd be ready for my next shift until I realized I was hooked and it was time to accumulate more! Then I figured if they felt that good while working, it was time to wear them running! From recovery runs to training for marathons and ultras, not only do I notice a huge difference in my circulation but I love being able to choose from all of the great designs.
