Teacher’s Comments: Very Comfortable
As a teacher, and a dedicated walking golfer, I spend an inordinate amount of time on my feet. Thus, I have developed a very definite set of preferences when it comes to socks: they need to regulate moisture to keep the foot dry and blister free, fit snugly so they don’t slide and cause blisters, and have cushioning on the heel for impact.
Swiftwick’s Pursuit socks meet all my standards.
The Pursuit is a Merino Wool, 200 needle compression sock. Before you rebel at the idea of putting hot scratchy wool on your feet, let me let me assure you that modern wool weaves are not only soft; they are cool. I almost wear ankle length wool socks almost exclusively during the summer, and my feet have never been happier.
In addition to the natural comfort of wool, Swiftwick has enhanced the comfort with a “managed compression” system that supports all three arches in the foot for a perfect, blister free fit.
I love these socks and intend to get more.
