Hear what others have to say about Sockwell
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.

When I sell your socks to my customers I warn them that they are going to cry a little (even if they just cry on the inside) when their Goodhew socks are dirty and they have to wear their old socks the next day. They chuckle and say yeah right, but they come back and tell me I was right when they come in to buy more.

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.
Tough Mudder took place in Georgia on Saturday March 12th www.toughmudder.com It was a demanding 12.4 mile obstacle course race based off of the training exercises of the British Special Forces. It was well beyond a traditional mud run. 5 minutes into the race we were neck deep in freezing cold water and still had 12 miles to go. Some of the other obstacle highlights were carrying with a teammate a 8ft log for a 1/4 mile up and down hills on a wooded trail, diving 15ft off a plank into a pond then swimming 15 yards, and running 10 yards through mud while live electrical wires dangle in front of you. I (wore) my Black Goodhew Sport Footie socks. The best compliment I can pay Goodhew is that not once during the race did I notice my feet. I was sore on all other parts of my body but not my feet. I have no doubt the decision I made to wear these Goodhew socks helped me get to the finish line of Tough Mudder. Not only that but the socks withstood the pounding they took during Tough Mudder and after washing are back in my drawer ready for more wear!
GoodHew/Sockwell socks are the best socks, we have ever had on our feet. We walk 36 holes on some tournament days, and we used to change socks after 18 holes but now we just keep going. They really check all the boxes that you didn't know you had for taking care of your feet. They are our go-to socks! They are warm or cool depending on what you need them to be. The compression socks are amazing for many reasons. They keep us comfortable when we travel and keep us warm on the course when the temperature drops. On top of all of that, they are just cool socks. We love the designs and everything about them. We can never have too many pairs of GoodHew/Sockwell socks! They are truly the best, our feet are always happy when we are wearing them!
