I’ve worn the same pair of Wright Running socks for every single 17+ mile run I’ve done plus 2 full marathons. Today when they came out of the dryer, I noticed one pair had a hole in the bottom. They practically deserve a burial after the years of amazing service. By my calculations, they have way over 200 miles on them. Guess it’s time to put a new pair into rotation.
And check out my new kicks…
They are a pair of the new Mizuno Wave Prophecy that I’ve been given to try out!

Wow you got a lot of mileage out of those socks! Those shoes look crazy, can't wait to read the review!
That's a lot of miles from one pair of socks! I'm clearly buying the wrong brand!
I have those same socks. It's good to hear that they last so long!
Those are some loyal socks 🙂 Nice shoes!
Those are some crazy looking shoes. They almost make vibrams look normal.
My Dad swears by Wright socks. He buys them in bulk, he calls my socks "fancy socks" Can't wait to hear about the new shoes. they are sharp!
LOVE THOSE SHOES!
I have a pair of socks I wore for every long run in my first 2 years of running. Then I switched to knee highs and haven't worn them since. I feel bad for them. Love those shoes!
Those shoes are AWESOME.
Shiny new kicks!You got a lt of mileage out of those socks! I have a few Balega pairs that are starting to wear at the heal, and those puppies have also seen some wear and tear.

Those shoes are beautiful. A work of art. I already have 3 pairs – is it wrong to want more.
