Hello! I hope you all have had a great Thursday so far. I’m coming to you a lot later than originally planned, but it’s better to be late than never, right?
Plus, we’re jumping right into a giveaway… so… you’re welcome.
If there’s anything I can never have enough of (and I know the fitness professionals and enthusiasts feel me on this one), it’s comfortable, functional, quality athletic socks!
Bombas spent two years in research and development to create a line of athletic socks designed to feel, look, and perform better, all with a mission to help those in need.
Bombas made seven major improvements to the standard athletic sock, including a Performance Footbed for extreme comfort, a Blister Tab to prevent annoying (and painful) rubbing and chafing, a Honeycomb Support System to distribute pressure evenly, and the Invisitoe, a hand-linked toe system to eliminate bumps that run across the toes.
While all of this sounds wonderful, my absolute favorite part about Bombas is their community and mission to give back. Socks are the #1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters, so for every pair purchased, one pair will be donated. Awesome right?
Bombas are built for athletic purposes, but could very well be used for leisurely lounging and activities as well. I know I’ve certainly enjoyed bumming around in them.
I love the little hug the Honeycomb Support System gives the middle of my foot. It’s the perfect amount of support for work or play.
Here’s a couple fun facts about Bombas:
– They were featured on Shark Tank! Scott and I are big fans of the show I and vaguely remember seeing them in the season premiere last year. They ended up getting a deal with Daymond John and have turned into a great success story. Love that.
– The word Bombas is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee.
“Bees work together to make the hive a better place. We like that. When we say Bee Better, we mean it as a mantra, a way of approaching every day. It’s stitched into the inside of every pair of Bombas for a reason. It’s a reminder to push yourself harder to be better at your athletic pursuits.”
Socks can really make or break a running experience, and I am happy to report that these stay right in place throughout all of my runs and workouts. They are thick enough to make you feel supported, but thin and lightweight enough to allow your feet to breathe.
I’ve only tried out the ankle height so far, but they come in a variety of fun colors and styles!
Since I am loving my socks so much, I figured some of you would like try them out too.
