Products that have served me well.
I've used this blog to talk about lots of things that I think could improve so I thought I'd use it sometimes to give praise to some products I own that are really good.
First up, my Adidas running socks.
In day to day life, socks aren't really a priority when it comes to your look or comfort. They're ubiquitous, usually an afterthought and they're rarely seen. Running socks are completely different though and they're a massively important part of kit.
Neglect them at your peril.
Over the past few years I've bought several pairs of running socks and these are the only ones I wear now. Every other brand and style I've bought have either become stretched; given me blisters or simply worn away. But not my trusty Adidas.
Runners become very brand loyal about their kit, but I try and be brand-neutral and go for the products that have served me well. I must have run a good few hundred miles in them and they're as good (if not better as they fit my toes perfectly now) as the day I bought them, and until they prove me otherwise they'll be my product of choice for some time to come.
