With many runners looking to tackle Spring Marathons, the launch of Balega Blister Resistant socks is perfect timing. The specialty mark running sock manufacturer launches its completely redesigned Blister Resist sock collection for Spring 2018. Made from natural mohair, Balega Blister Resistant Socks are designed to protect against sheer friction blisters without sacrificing breathability, comfort or strength.
According to Balega, merino wool, feature slight barbs that stand up when wet, mohair’s naturally flat, scale-like structure won’t cause blisters when your feet start to sweat. Mohair’s hollow fiber structure also allows for superior temperature regulation; keeping you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Combined with Balega’s trademark Drynamix, mohair is twisted to create DRY-MO, a unique moisture management solution for incredible performance and dry feet.
In addition to being antimicrobial, mohair is one of the most durable and elastic natural performance fibers, making it ideal for running, hiking and everything in between.
“Balega is passionate about providing harmony in the fit, feel and performance of our socks. Each sock is constructed based on research, design, technical excellence, and durability,” said Tanya Pictor, Vice President of Marketing at Implus Specialty. “Unpredictable weather conditions – such as snow, rain, and heat – are one of the leading causes of blisters. With the Blister Resist socks, you no longer have to fear a change in weather when you head out for your next adventure.”
Balega offers no-show, quarter and crew-length Blister Resist socks – all of which are ideal for both your front and backcountry activities.
