The Best Workout Socks

From cycling to running, there's an ideal choice for each sport.

"The right athletic sock helps wick moisture away from your feet and can work to prevent common problems like blisters and athlete’s foot," says Mark Klion, M.D., a New York-based orthopedic surgeon and medical director for the New York City Triathlon. From cushioned ones that help absorb your foot’s weight, to lycra versions, which might decrease vibration in the muscles, leading to less fatigue, here are socks to match your sport.
