When I first saw this sock I thought they were going to be too thick and hot for running—not the case at all! I was extremely surprised with how breathable and lightweight the socks felt on the run. I prefer the short rise for runs on the road, but opt for the mid-rise style for hiking and other outdoor activities. —Elisa Hoffman, contributing writer

These shoes are awesome casual, everyday shoes. Love wearing the Terracruise to the gym for a cross-training day, walk on the beach or around town. The lace-up toggle is great too. Makes it perfect to throw on as your running out the door. They come if some fun colors for summer too. —Fara Rosenzweig, contributing writer
