Spring Running Product Review: Swiftwick & Nathan Sports


There are so many great products on the market right now to get you pumped up for spring running. Here are a few of our favorites.

Swiftwick Socks 

The Pursuit Ultralight is constructed with the lightest weight, fine-gauge Merino Wool and provides maximum moisture and sweat management. The Pursuit Ultralight wicks moisture and dries quickly, so your feet stay dry and blister-free wherever your adventures take you. The thin, breathable design also features a reinforced heel and toe to maximize durability. It has all the benefits of merino wool but is extremely lightweight, ensuring a great fit in any performance shoe. The Pursuit Ultralight is ideal for running, hiking, cycling/MTB, golf or also makes a great everyday lifestyle sock.

Swiftwick National Park Socks

Swiftwick’s National Park socks will make you look forward to your workouts. Splurging on high quality workout-specific socks might not be at the top of your gear list, but this ultra comfortable sock from Swiftwick will definitely change your mind. Featuring a high-cushion sole that adds padding without sacrificing breathability, the Maxus is perfect for keeping you comfortable during high-impact activities.
