Before we sock it to ’em today and talk toes, here are reasons number 3,165 and 3,166 to try those Zella Live-In Capris I gushed about last week, the Lululemoon-like (but more affordable) workout pants that miraculously keep everything from jiggling around but don’t make me feel like a sausage…

“Those pants are man-attractors! I got checked out twice on my walk and that never happens, lol!”

Dude, pants so magical that they’ll change your life and help you find the man (or woman) of yo’ dreams!? Seriously, what are you waiting for?
But enough about pants (even ones as good as these). Let’s talk toes.
Or rather socks. The kind of socks you might wear with workout pants (or with sweatpants on the couch while you eat Almond Roca and watch Scandal…not that I’d know anything about that).
Say “greetings!” to Thorlo’s $13 Thick Cushion Running Socks, otherwise known as THE SOCKS THAT WILL RUIN YOU FOR ALL OTHERS.
Yes, socks. Socks don’t usually do a lot for me, but I love these so much that I feel obligated to spread the word, one pair at a time.
I’ve given them as gifts to every runner, walker, workout fiend and comfort enthusiast in my family because they’re hands down the most comfortable workout socks I’ve ever worn. Once I started running in them, I swore off working out in other socks. They’re like sock-based Chanel bags!
Thick — like really, really thick — and cushiony. They have thick, soft padding at the ball and heel, over and around the toes, and at the arch, providing extra cushioning to support your hard-working feet.
They’re moisture wicking, too, so feet stay cool and dry as you chug along.
I’ve been wearing Thorlos for years, and I’m at the point now where I’ll seriously question whether I want to go for a run at all if I don’t have a clean (or clean-ish) pair.
And they’re just as good at running errands as they are for running laps. They never chafe or rub in the wrong places. No blisters. I feel like I’m wearing heavenly pillows filled with downy fluff on my feet.
They also come in a few different colors and styles (white, blue, tennis, walking, running, hiking, crew, like that) for guys and gals. By no means are any of them flashy…but for me this is one of those cases where comfort trumps flash.
Also great if you spend a lot of time on your feet at work, have to hike across campus to get from bio chem to physics class, or if you’re a fleet-footed mom chasing kids.
