There is running and then there is running. The athlete that puts in a few miles every week for training might well do with any old sock, but for the marathon runner who depends on his equipment for his performance, that is far from the case. Socks for marathon runners need to be made for the ultimate in comfort and function simply because of the many miles involved both in training and competition.

The Nike Elite uses its lightweight cushioning to keep the effects of 26 miles of running on the foot to a minimum. These socks are side specific meaning the left one goes on the left foot and the right on the right. Nike’s famous Dri-Fit material provides excellent moisture wicking protection to help keep the feet dry and blister-free. Their foot specific design help provide the arch excellent support and overall, the Elite is an excellent choice for any marathon runner.
