SHFT – 20% Off Running Coach SHFT

Stance Fusion running socks – Men / Women

One of my LEAST favourite things is slipping on my ‘special’ TKMAX running socks. They are 100% sock but also 100% man-made fibre. Sweaty and horrible after about 12 minutes. I have a really nice popped blister on the end of one of my toes. I digress from the subject of the photo. I went…
