Do your feet a favour

Do your feet a favour and treat them to Feetures socks

Feetures have been the number one selling socks in USA specialty run stores for a few years running, and it’s not hard to see why. As Brisbane’s premier running store, intraining are following in these footsteps.

Feetures are also intraining’s best-selling sock brand. We stock a great range of their socks, which are available in three different thicknesses, different lengths and a fantastic array of colours. These socks are perfect not only for running, but any other active pursuits.

Features of Feetures?

  • Anatomically-designed fit around the toes provides the perfect fit for both your feet
  • Targeted arch compression promotes a snug, comfortable and secure fit to prevent friction and movement of the sock
  • Seamless construction eliminates irritation and friction
  • Nylon/spandex synthetic blend breathes exceptionally well and wicks moisture away from your feet to keep them cool and dry.
  • These fibres also ensure the socks hug and conform to your feet so there is no movement or bunching material to again eliminate friction
  • Heel tab and firm elastic around the ankle ensure the socks stay firm on your feet and don’t slip down into your shoes
  • Lifetime guarantee – the socks are of very high quality and exceptionally durable. They will maintain great fit and feel, and ensure your feet and comfortable for their entire lifetime, rather than deteriorating like other socks can tend to do.

Performance running socks

Performance running socks – Are they worth it?

Any sock will do …right? Many of us cringe when we see the price of a performance running sock and the thought of they can’t be better than my good ol’ cotton socks – can they? Your running sock choice can be the difference between a comfortable, pain-free run and a painful one. Wearing the wrong type of socks can lead to foot blisters, chafing, corns, and other issues. Ask anyone who has made the leap of faith to a performance running sock and they will tell you how something as simple as sock choice can transform your running experience.

CepsockGone were the days of ill fitting cotton socks, pooling moisture and forcing your feet to sweat more. Today’s performance running sock is anatomically manufactured to fit your left and right foot and wick moisture away from your sweaty feet, keeping them dry and comfortable throughout your run.

Your choice will depend on what you are looking for in a sock. If you have never had a performance running sock, try something similar in thickness to what you are currently wearing.

Pain in the heel?

Pain in the heel becoming a pain in the butt?

Feetures_PFsockLet’s face it, having a pain in the heel is a huge pain in the butt. Plantar Fasciopathy and/or Fasciitis is a prevalent injury amongst runners and the general public alike. Plantar Fasciopathy causes significant and often debilitating pain that affects not only running, but everyday life. Most often pain is experienced in the heel, but it can also extend through the medial arch of the foot.

Enter the new Plantar Fascia compression sock from Feetures. This is the latest high-quality recovery focused foot garment to hit the shelves at intraining Running Centre.
