A His & Hers FitSok Review and GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: We were sent Fitsok socks to review, provide our honest opinions and giveaway. No other compensation was provided.  

SD Dad and I just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. 10 years is a big freaking deal. At least to me anyway. He was so thoughtful with my gift and we had the most fun night out. (Thanks to my sis for babysitting!)



So when Bryan from Fitsok reached out to me, I had an idea. His and Hers reviews!  As you know, SD Dad has become quite the avid cyclist and I thought he should wear Fitsoks while riding and I should wear them while running and both of us write reviews!

Here is what SD Dad had to say (his words):
I had the chance to try out the Fitsok CF2 low-cut socks for bicycling.  



I was excited to try them out so I washed them up immediately in anticipation of my first ride.  For my first ride, I went on a fairly short ride just in case these didn't perform as expected.  When I put them on, they were a perfect fit, snugly supporting my foot and feeling great. On to my ride...put on my shoes and jumped on the bike. 



Couldn't really tell a difference right away other than the initial comfort of the socks.  After an hour of riding my feet still felt great and didn't seem nearly as sweaty and hot as usual.  After the ride my feet felt great.  I tried them again on a much longer ride and they still kept my feet cool and dry.  These are far superior to the socks I've been using and since my first time wearing them I've only ridden with these socks and no others.  I've even gotten to a point where I wear these on the weekends when not riding since they are so comfortable.  I wear a size 13 shoe and 48 bike shoe and the socks fit perfect.  



I am not a huge fan of low cut socks in general so I probably will get some quarter socks next but I will DEFINITELY keep wearing these high performance socks.  

My turn: 
You know me!  I like LOVE color!  I need color, I crave color.  So these immediately caught my attention.


 These socks are so amazing I have completely changed what I wear when I run just to have the chance to wear these.  I used to run in skirts and long compression socks but now I wear capris and these socks.   Because I LOVE them.




So what makes these socks great apart form the cool colors?  Well first of all, they are right-left specific.  Which means that all the necessary padding is on the right part of each foot.  




I still wear my Crazy Compression socks for recovery.  That won't change.  Those socks make me happy and make my tired legs feel good.  But during the run??  I will wear Fitsoks here on out!  Look at my outfit for the recent America's Finest City Half Marathon (recap coming soon, I promise!)!


My new standards: Spandits over the knee capris, Hoka One One, Headsweats visor, Panache bra and of course, my Fitsoks!

The amazing team over at Fitsok have agreed to let me GIVEAWAY a 3pack of the Jewel Pop F4 to one winner and a 3pack of the CF2 Cush to another winner.  That's right!  2 winners!  (If there is a different sock you want, we can play it by ear!)  You will LOVE these socks!
