Just like sheets, the extra thread makes a difference. Swiftwick socks, owned locally (a Brentwood, TN based company) but sold nationwide, are seriously a cut above any other sports sock I have ever worn. Ok, let’s be serious, the socks I generally wear are bought at Target or stolen from my husband’s sock drawer. But, every now and then I have been known to splurge on some workout socks, usually when buying a new pair of shoes and pondering if I actually have any clean and paired workout socks to welcome me home. As the answer is often no, a splurge pair of socks is added to the checkout. I’m glad I grabbed a pair of Swiftwicks during such a moment.
So why is Swiftwick so great? They use 200 knit construction which creates the most form fitting sock on the market. The compression technology massages your feet and really does make them happier during the grueling routine we tend to put them through. In fact, the socks have been proven to increase circulation to the lower part of your legs making your performance even better. Click here to read more about the technology behind these socks.
And, the socks live up to their name: they do wick the moisture away from your feet. I’m a die-hard fan. I think Purebarre needs to hook up with this company and contract out their Purebarre socks to them. Just add some traction and these would be SO MUCH better than the sub-par socks sold there. And pilates studios could follow suit. Do yourself a favor and try a pair of these and see if you don’t also think that these socks simply beat all other socks ion the market.
Swiftwick sponsored our Consignment Sale last February which netted over $8300 for Nashville Children’s Alliance. They handed out socks and arm-warmers to the patrons at the party. The response to the socks from patrons has been great:
“My socks kept being stolen by my highschool daughter so I decided to go buy several pair. Then I went back again and bought more. They are great.”
“I never gave much thought to running socks, but now I see why I should. I’m a convert. Swiftwick socks do make a huge difference. And, they are perfect for biking. My husband even is buying them now!”
“These socks are so comfortable that after a long day at work, I kick my shoes off and reach for these socks to put on. Add some yoga pants and a glass of wine and my relaxing evening is in full swing.”

Check out the website for more information or to order online. These socks are available locally throughout the country and now I’d like to request that all the athletic socks my kids are given through various sporting leagues be switched over to these. I mean, geez, these socks even help to prevent blisters! Buy a pair and you’ll see why I am sounding so obsessed. Trust me – you’ll see. You’ll be obsessed too!
There are tons of stores that sell Swiftwick. But, where you would expect to find them at various athletic stores, you might be surprised to find out that Swiftwick socks are beloved enough to also be carried at such specialty stores as Posh on 21st Avenue, Caldwell Collection on Bandywood, Williams Medical Supply on Church Street, and Off the Cuff in Brentwood.
Ok, your homework is to try these socks and get back with us with your amazement.
