Rockay Accelerate Anti-Blister Running Socks
The Rockay Accelerate Anti-Blister Running socks are made by runners for runners but these great compression socks work for all sports including any fighting sports when compression socks will be helpful. They are a highly regarded brand in the running community and are well known for making high-quality products. These socks are no exception to that statement, they are made with organic merino wool from Europe, have a lifetime guarantee, are anti-blister, fit tight and snug with arch compression, wick sweat, and are odor resistant.
They offer a seamless construction for maximum comfort and have ventilated areas for enhanced breathability. The only possible downsides to having a wool sock are issues with shrinking, pilling/wear and them being at a higher price point than non-wool socks. Rockay offers these socks in 6 fun color combinations so you will be sure to find one that matches your wardrobe.
Higher Price Point
Because they are a lower cut they are tucked nicely right above your running shoe for just a pop of the sock showing. At first glance, they don't even look like they have any compression capabilities at all as most traditional compression garments are usually quite medical looking and not the most stylish.
Even though these socks are made with technical features like the anti-blister prevention, arch compression and temperature regulation they are not just for runners. They are stylish enough to wear for every day if you are wanting more out of your socks than regular cotton ones can provide. If you are prone to sore arches from standing all day at work or on public transit these would also be great as an everyday sock to provide that little bit of arch support for instant relief. If you happen to be breaking in some new shoes these would also be a great choice as they have anti-blister padding so you can have all the love of a new shoe without the pain.
They come equipped with extra light mesh in ventilation areas for increased breathability and have the sweat-wicking bonus of merino wool. The ventilation mesh keeps your foot from overheating and becoming stuffy and uncomfortable. An added bonus is the padding and reinforcement they put into the sock. The forefoot and toes are padded ontop to help distribute pressure and aid in comfort. The heel of the sock is reinforced which helps with the durability of the sock, but not only that, it's also padded as well to help prevent blisters.
Another complaint some customers had was premature ripping and wear of the sock in the compression band area on the arch. This area is quite a bit thinner than most of the sock so it can be prone to being less durable than the rest of it. This was only the case with some customers and the majority of them were actually quite pleased with the overall durability of the sock. With proper care, the Rockay Accelerate Anti-Blister Running Socks should be long-lasting.
Because they use merino wool as the main fiber in these socks, it's naturally sweat-wicking. The ventilated mesh also keeps your feet cool while the wool keeps its dry. Which is the exact combination you want when you are running and don't want any interruptions of discomfort. If you do find that these are issues you suffer from with normal cotton socks you should give the Rockay Accelerate Anti-Blister Running Socks a try and see if they improve your overall comfort and performance.
They also included a back tab on the sock. This helps with pulling them on as well as keeping them in place while you are running and preventing slippage. One of the most uncomfortable things is having your sock slip into your shoe and this prevents that from happening. Attached to the back tab is also the tight elastic top of the sock. The reason they engineered it with a snug fit was not only to make sure it had a great fit with no slippage but also so that dirt and debris that you may be kicking around while running doesn't fall into your socks.
How these prevent blisters is a mixture of a bunch of different features within the design of the sock. It prevents moisture blisters by being made with merino wool which is naturally sweat-wicking, as well as having ventilated mesh so your feet don't overheat and over sweat. They are equipped with extra cushion on blister prone areas for even further prevention. This comes in the form of extra padding on the forefoot area and the toes as well as the heels. Last but not least the seamless design is also what aids in it being a truly blister-free sock, with no seams or irritating pressure points for feet.
These are not compression socks for people who need any sort of compression in the ankles or legs and are not intended to be used as a medical device to treat varicose veins. However, if you have used compression garments in the past and are looking for something with a bit more support in the foot this could be the sock for you.
If you are not using compression socks for medical reasons but are interested in them otherwise they aid in decreasing the amount of lactic acid your muscles are producing which is what builds up while you are exercising and causes sore muscles after an intense workout. The decrease in lactic acid also helps out with foot cramps, if you happen to be prone to those a compression sock is going to help.
The compression on these socks is strongest around the arch of the foot which will give you great arch support if you have flat feet or any other type of foot condition where you need a little more arch support. From there it tapers off gradually throughout the foot giving it a natural feel of tightness that's never uncomfortable.
Go ahead and treat your feet to the best experience possible and they up your performance in return. With a lifetime guarantee, you have nothing to lose.
