Soothing your feet to walk more!

Nordic Walking is a great exercise that can be taken and achieved in and on any terrain.  Although your shoes protect your feet, what should you do to sooth your feet and protect them from debris, blisters, water and most of all keep them comfortable?

We found some great socks designed for athletes to help them focus less on the elements and more on Nordic Walking the extra mile.  According to Competitor Magazine August 2011 issue, here are four athletic socks to get your feet acquainted with.

Sock #1 is a perfect sock for those feet that just continue to get repeated blisters no matter what you do.  The Injinji Outdoor Series Toe Socks eliminate the friction between your toes which helps alleviate the cause of blisters. Check them out here:  injinji Performance Micro Toesocks

Sock #2 is great for the Nordic Walkers who enjoy making their own paths.  The Inov-8 Debrisoc 38 is a two in one padded sock that actually stretches over the top of your shoe and hugs your ankles for extra support.  Why would you need such a sock?  While creating your own path it will be inevitable that your shoes will fill up with dirt, mud, water, sticks, rocks and other debris- this sock takes care of that! Check it out here: INOV-8 Prosoc 22 Race Socks - Large

Sock #3 was designed for the winter Nordic Walking warrior.  The Asics Trabuco Wool Quarter Sock keeps your feet warm, supported and actually conforms to your feet. Check it out here: ASICS Trabuco Wool Qtr ( sz. M, Black/Heather Grey/Macaw )
