Socks might come in second when making the decision of what bright new pair of running shoes to take flight in but there are a few New Balance pairs that bring together style and technology to make all the difference. Unlike 100% cotton socks the Minimus sock is made from 97% Nylon and 3% Lycra® Spandex which makes it super light and has built in cushioning for the right striking areas. The Hydrotec sock includes Delcron Hydrotec fiber that helps wick moisture along with vented panels to help with airflow. The standard Low Cut sock is made from 56% Polyester, 34% Nylon, 9% Acrylic and 1% Lycra® Spandex and like all of the other socks mentioned is reinforced in the heel and toe and includes cushioning in just the right spots. A lot more technology in these socks that you might think but it goes a long way towards a better run. All are manufactured by a contracted company call Renfro that was selected by New Balance because of their domestic production capabilities.
