Get specific advice on choosing socks from Craig Gornall of The Sweat Shop Bedfordview on page 82 of TRAIL 27.

“The first thing I look for in a sock is that it fits me correctly,” explains Craig. “So when I buy socks I don’t buy them according to my running shoe size but rather according to my foot size, this is as the running shoe is generally a size or so bigger than my foot size.”
