Running Socks

My pick for running socks for both ladies and men is the Fusion range. This is due to the fact that they are currently my favourite running sock. Thanks to Stance and Freestak, I was lucky enough to have been sent these socks to test them out and they have become the first range of socks that I genuinely recommend. I have always worn proper running socks but the comfort and fit of the Stance Fusion sock really agrees with my feet during a long run.
