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 socks are...the first socks I've ever put on my feet that seem to massage and support them like nothing I've placed on my feet before. I think the rest of my body is a little jealous as it has started having little pains ever since my feet became that comfortable.
I backcountry ski almost every weekend, so for Christmas all I asked for was ski socks. When I received a pair of Goodhew women's socks I was a little hesitant since I'd never heard of it. Well today I tried them out, in 6-30 degrees (F) temperatures and they worked great!! Definitely recommend them!
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 have learned to not always trust my first impressions when it comes to Goodhew (aka wool) socks. Initially, I thought the Bergamo socks would be too hot and thick since they had a cushioned sole; however, the soft, tight and amazingly comfortable socks blew me away. I currently work in law enforcement and I wear boots that are waterproof which only means that the boots do not breathe. Having dry and comfortable feet while working long hours on my feet is very important to me. I must say that the Bergamo socks made by Goodhew made all of the difference! Every step is like a constant reminder of how bad all of my other socks feel after a long day....I love how the Goodhew socks maintain a tight fit and never seem to stretch out. I would highly recommend these socks to anyone in law enforcement or anyone who spends long hours in work boots.
There are certain things in life that you just cannot imagine appreciating until you actually experience them. Socks would have never come to mind. How much improvement can be made over the standard cotton sock? Quite a bit, it turns out. My first pair of Goodhew socks didn't see any action for weeks after receiving them as a gift. My thought was, "Socks are socks, and I'm not buying into some sales pitch about the evils of cotton socks." Once I tried them, though, the difference in the quality of craftsmanship and quality of materials was immediately apparent. You can't put on a pair of Goodhew without being struck by the sense that feels something like "this is what a sock SHOULD be." My suggestion is this....give one pair of Goodhew a shot. That's all it will take. You can't NOT recognize them as a truly superior product.
