Do wool socks REALLY not stink after wearing several times? Episode 3

Hello again all,

Wear 3.  March 1, 2012

I actually got a bit ahead of schedule on this one.  I think I was supposed to do a 4 mile tempo run and ended up doing a 6 mile pace run, but who cares.  It felt good.  The weather was nice.  It was warm and I was in shorts, a tee, and of course my trusty Bikila / Smartwool combo.

These runs are always tough on the feet.  Trying to keep a race pace really gets my feet sore as I lose the posture from Chi Running and revert back to trying to power run.  The socks really helped keep the hot spots from forming as quickly as they normally do.  That said, they did form near the end.  Nothing major though.  All that said, the socks are still performing very well and they do not seem to have lost anything yet.

So here is the picture.  Aside from the lighting being off from the previous picture and my friend Maggie would probably beat me if she knew I was posting them online and they were shot on a workout mat with a window open in the background.  Sorry Mags.  :)

 After removing the socks today, the one thing that stuck out to me was that they stayed in the shape of my feet almost to the point it looked like they were starched in that position.  The heels did not seem to be any dirtier than the previous run.

And the moment you have all been waiting for....

Still no stink.  I have to say I am very impressed so far.

Happy Hiking,

The Shepherd
