Bibrave Product Review: Wigwam Lightning Pro Low Cut Socks

Disclaimer: I received a pair of wigwam socks to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

To say getting my pair of wigwam socks was an ordeal is in understatement. I placed my order to try out my pair after I got the You’re In email from Julia and then I waited. And waited. And emailed Julia. And waited some more. Turns out, the socks came after our Bibchat sponsored by Wigwam thanks to the Cleveland Postal Service. I’m still not sure what happened, but I figured I’d still do a blog post!!

I’m always one who has issues finding socks. Some companies due sizes that are size 5-10. Really? I have munchkin feet due to the Lebanese ness that runs in the blood line (seriously, I could fit into kids soccer cleats through high school- score for saving money!). So whenever I find socks that my feet aren’t drowning in and that fit, I buy multiple pairs.

I’m a sure fan of the Wigwam socks after getting a chance to wear them. For one, the sizes are scaled down. A size 5-7 (ish) is perfect for my small feet and I like smaller socks to begin with so they don’t bunch up on my toes. It’s also a plus that the Wigwam socks are seamless. They fit well and I never felt them bunching up on me in my shoes. I also love the no blister aspect of them. I haven’t had a chance to wear them on any long runs yet, so that will be the true test of running.

Also, if you’re wondering what they’re made of, here you go: 42% Stretch Nylon, 32% Dri-release® TENCEL®, 22% X2O® Acrylic, 2% Stretch Polyester, 2% Spandex. If it were me, I’d go less dry release, more stretch nylon/spandex, but that’s just me.

They do carry fun colored type socks, though some weren’t in my size [sadness]- I’m a huge fan of fun colored socks. Sizes include MS, MD, LG, or XL.

Cost: $11. Hurry and save 15% off with 10-WG615BR through the end of October!
