The Best Socks for Winter Running – Bridgedale and Hilly

From Runner’s World by Adam Chase


These toasty pairs will keep your toes warm on cold-weather runs.

With cold, wet, and even slushy and icy conditions right around the corner, keeping your feet in a good mood always helps in coaxing the rest of your body out the door for a run. The following line-up of autumn and winter socks offers plenty of choices:


Hilly Marathon Fresh Anklet


Price: $12.95

This UK company knows how to make a smashing good running sock and the Marathon Fresh is one of Hilly’s better single layer options, especially because it incorporates Polygiene, an anti-odor element. The anatomically-fitted sock provides surprising cushioning in the strategic higher-impact areas of a running foot, delivering notable comfort and seamless construction. The upper foot area is well vented and the combination of 97% Polyamide, 3% Elastane is durable and offers a soft hand to the foot.


Bridgedale Midweight StormSock


Price: $45 – $63

Fully waterproof to protect against the worst of running weather, these socks combine an impermeable, hydrophilic, nonporous polyurethane membrane with a merino wool interior for next-to-skin comfort, moisture and odor control and Nylon and Lycra outer layer to protect the membrane and provide stretch and a snug fit. The three layers work together for a fully water resistant, stretchable, fitted sock. They are machine washable and available in different heights and weights.
