Feetures Max Cushion Elite No-Show Tab Running Sock Pre-Review

View Feetures Ultra Thin Elite on Amazon HERE

I normally prefer a slightly taller sock, more like the traditional cycling height ankle, but when I saw the max cushion elite at the OR Show in January 2016 I decided to give them a try. I’m so glad I did. They fit into my running shoes just like my old dead worn out pair of the slightly thick socks I normally wear and provided all the cushioning and support I need.

I liked them so much I wore them at the St. George City Half Marathon just a week after the OR Show. You know it’s a bad idea to try anything new the week before a race, right? I was really confident it would work out okay, so I did the race in my Feetures Max Cushion Elite socks and I did great. No problems at all.

If you normally like a very thin tabbed running sock, the link at the top of the page gives you some information. If you prefer the thicker sock you’ll have to wait a little. It’s worth the wait though.

My Backstory on Feetures

My wife was at a Utah Run, a running store in American Fork, and decided to try on a pair of shoes. She was wearing Birkies, so had no socks on, and dug a pair out of their  sock bin. She decided she liked the socks so well that she bought a pair. She liked those so well that the kids decided to buy her a few pair of Feetures Ultra Thin Elite for Christmas. I mentioned this to the folks at Feetures at the OR Show and they were thrilled. I told them I prefer a much thicker sock though, and they told me I’d love this. They were correct.
