Sof Sole

A couple weeks ago, I was contacted by Rachel from Sof Sole asking if I'd be interested in testing out and reviewing some of there new products. I've always been a little jealous of other bloggers who have gotten free products to review, so I jumped on the chance. This week I got this in the mail:Some sweet moisture-wicking socks and a couple pairs of cushy insoles.

The Adapt insole molds directly to your foot. You actually throw it in the oven for a couple minutes, put it right in your shoes, stand in them for a couple minutes, and you have an insole custom made for your foot. Doesn't that sound cool? I haven't done this yet, but I am totally looking forward to it.

The Athlete insole is super soft. I just put them in my shoes tonight and walked around a little bit. They feel great. I always go for cushioning shoes when buying running shoes, so I think these insoles are right up my alley.

The Cushion and the Lite performance socks are some pretty fancy socks. This is one area where I've never been picky. I have always gone for the cheapo moisture wicking socks. So it will be interesting to see how these socks compare.

This weekend marks the start of my Christmas break (I've got 3 weeks off!). I am planning to start running again since my knee is feeling pretty good. I've also got some hikes planned in the next few weeks. Perfect testing grounds for these products. Expect to see some reviews over the next several weeks.

And thanks again to Sof Sole for letting me test this stuff out!!

UPDATE: Here is my review.

Tell me how the socks work for you. There are so many choices out there that it makes it hard to pick any 1 sock over the other.
