Running socks are often running's poor relations. Because how many runners focus on the quality of the running shoes they're selecting yet seem to care very little when it comes to buying their running socks? A lot! And this is a serious mistake! Why? Because your running socks are in contact with the foot, in direct contact with your skin. Your socks are therefore a major interface that you need to choose carefully, depending on what kind of sport you do.
As pecialists in foot comfort for nearly 50 years, we have developed a whole range of technical running socks with our top athletes. So that these running socks are thin, comfortable, breathable, durable, high-performance and stylish. Marathon, 10 km, training, competition, high, low, winter, summer... In this guide, you're sure to find the right sock for you!
The ultimate running sock for long distances! Ultra-technical and ultra-breathable, this running sock developed with our elite athletes from Team Sidas-Matryx is aimed at runners in search of comfort and performance, especially if training for a marathon or half-marathon.
In fact, even after 1 hour of running, our Run Ultra sock continues to function as an exoskeleton for your foot to support it and compensate for its fatigue. The goal? So that you don't lose performance over the kilometres. And so that the socks don't get holes in them, as is often the case after 2 or 3 long runs!
Based on innovation, these running socks feature an In & Out construction, i.e. they're threadless, as well as 2 grip strips strategically positioned on the forefoot and midfoot, to avoid any risk of chafing and therefore blisters. Pain is very common in marathon and half-marathon runs. You know, those blisters caused by sweat and moisture that don't go away after several hours of running! Well, with Run Ultra socks, there's no risk of that happening, thanks to our breathable mesh and an anatomical construction designed so that our athletes can hit record times by focusing solely on their run, forgetting about their feet!
The Run Ultra is available as women's running socks and men's running sock, thanks to an array of colours – sometimes bold, always stylish – that make these socks a benchmark in terms of compromise: style, performance and comfort.
The running sock for all road running enthusiasts. This sock has been designed with a single objective: to maximise your running enjoyment and to make you feel invincible. You may be looking at the best running socks in any category here!
Perfectly suited to road or track running, for distances ranging from 5K and half-marathons to 10Ks, the Run Feel stands out from the pack by delivering finesse and precision for athletes who are running against the clock, while providingcomfort and breathability for more casual runners!
And what technology has made this a reality? 200-needle knit definition for comfort and precision; 3 non-slip grip zones that reduce friction by 65%; some particularly high-performance ankle support as well as a ventilated knit zone to wick away sweat. And the little extra? The reflective strip so runners stay visible, when going for a run in the city to clear their mind after an intense day of work.
Running is enjoyable and sometimes takes you out of your comfort zone. At Sidas, we make sure that leaving the comfort zone only means improving your technique and getting better, never uncomfortable feet! How? Thanks to our new running sock designed to improve comfort. Lightweight and technical, this running sock has been designed so that all you have to do is focus on how you feel.
The list of materials that make these running socks a benchmark in terms of comfort is lengthy:
- The nonslip grip strip that reduces friction with each stride and thus your risk of blisters.
- A large toe and metatarsal box for unparalleled comfort.
- Protective zones for better shock absorption, in the heel and toe.
- Ventilated mesh for optimal breathability.
- Ankle support and specific anatomical construction for the right and left feet.
The top running socks when it comes to comfort. So you don't even feel the miles slip by. All the focus is on the run itself.
These men's and women's running socks are available in a number of different colours so you can swap between styles as well as distances.
The Run Anatomic is a classic. One of our best-sellers. The running sock that appeals to all road runners for its lightness, thinness and technology. It's so imperceptible, it's easy to forget you're wearing any, it feels like you're running on air.
Threadless construction for comfort, open mesh for breathability, grip strip to prevent chafing, and a close-to-foot fit for precision make this a timeless and universally acclaimed running sock.
The subtlety of the Run Anatomic range lies in its variations with 3 different sock lengths to suit individual preferences:
- The Run Anatomic Ankle, for those who prefer running socks that go all the way up to the ankles. Available in 4 colours for men and women.
- The Run Anatomic Crew, for those who appreciate mid-calf running socks, which feel comfortable right up to the mid-calf. Available in 2 colours for men and women. They're also very popular with cycling enthusiasts and trail runners.
- The Run Anatomic Low, for those who swear by low running socks, also called trainer socks, which are as imperceptible as they are invisible. Available in 2 colours for men and women.
The Run Feel Crew Syblo is a limited edition developed with Baptiste Cartieaux a.k.a. Syblo, a young athlete who's always better than the rest. At running, for a start. With stratospheric times that make this cross-country and 3,000-metre steeplechase enthusiast one of the best French athletics out there. And at being an entrepreneur. His YouTube channel SYBLO with his associate Lucas Vivin draws tens of thousands of subscribers, who are hooked on his amazing immersive videos about the quest for the highest performance, showing behind-the-scenes footage of their competition, and making running more popular with the next generation.
Attracted by both the channel and charisma of these extraordinary young people, we came up with a running sock specially for them: crafted for performance; uncompromising on comfort and technicality; and standing out for its striking design.
Our compression sock, the Endurance Racing Knee for running is a versatile sock that can be used during exercise, to reduce muscle tears, and to warm down afterwards, as it improves blood circulation, and therefore, recovery.
This high running sock has gradual calf compression, reducing the microtrauma from repeated shocks and thus staving off muscle fatigue. This is particularly suited to long marathon-type running. These high running socks are also very beneficial after the race is over, during your recovery phase, giving you the pleasant feeling of a job well done and comfortably swathed feet.
In line with our compression socks for running, we have designed these Ultralight Run Calf compression running sleeves whose characteristics and benefits are quite similar in that they stabilise the calves during running, and therefore the reduce muscle fatigue; optimising recovery, after exercise, by promoting good blood circulation.
What makes them so great? The high performance progressive compression for maximum support, the kind of lightness that makes them imperceptible and a hydrophobic fibre for perfect sweat management.
These compression running sleeves are available in men's and women's designs with 3 different colours.
