Which type of sock is best in your quest to banish blisters – a single or double layer? I explain the difference, and reveal the pros & cons from real runners.

Watch this so you can make a more informed choice and prevent hot spots, chafing and blisters with the right sock for you.

The socks I used:

Single layer
1000 Mile Ultra Performance Socklet with Cupron copper fibre anti-odour technology

Double layer (lightweight)
1000 Mile Breeze Lite with Nilit Breeze ultra cool lining

Double layer (padded)
1000 Mile Fusion Anklet with protective padding and Tactel inner layer

And if you really want your mum to get you some owl socks for Christmas, send her this link to some pretty funky ones here:

This film is powered by 1000 Mile Socks who paid me to use their products in a Q&A explaining single and double layer socks with feedback from real runners in touch with me through my social media channels. All views are my own, or the views of the runners I surveyed.

Join me on social media to be part of future films!
