The Fox River Peak Series now includes an extremely lightweight, plush ankle sock. The Verso line is available in five colors; red, white, black and two shades of blue.  From the moment I put the socks on, I felt them form to my foot immediately, thanks to Fox River’s Helix Fit System.  Once I stood up I noticed that the socks adjusted to my every move while staying snug to my foot.

Reinforced Heel & Toe Wear Zones

Another feature I noticed right away were the reinforced heel and toe wear zones.  These regions are reinforced with nylon to add durability and ensure that the sock will last longer.  The Verso socks are extremely comfortable. This quality is especially felt in the arch where a spandex compression material supports the mid portion of the foot.  

So the comfort was great, they fit perfectly, but it was time to really put them to the test. I used these socks on both a treadmill workout and concrete exercise.  As I was walking to my local gym, I notice that the socks were very responsive even without running.  With each step I took I felt a cool ventilated airflow pass through my feet.  Once I got to the gym and started jogging on the treadmill I really had no complaints at all.  The same for when I hit the streets for another couple miles of running.

Everwear Shield

One thing I was a bit skeptical about was what Fox River calls the Everwear Shield. That is the part on the back of the ankle that extends up almost like a mini-hook.  At first glance I thought it was a bit unnecessary and going to look weird on an ankle sock, but I was mistaken. The Shield was just enough to protect my achilles, providing extra cushioning on the back of my foot.  I experienced no irritation or rash on the back of my foot and the extra material barely shows above the back of the shoe.  

After a solid amount of running, my feet perspire and certain socks aren’t always as sweat-friendly as I would like them to be. When I got home from my runs, I took off the socks and was surprised at how dry they felt.  Obviously they were a little damp, but for how much I had ran, I didn’t expect them to be that dry.  The Wick Dry® Technology really kept the sweat away for a comfortable run.  Hot spots and blisters are prevented with this moisture-wicking feature.

Verdict

Overall, I was thoroughly enjoyed with the performance and comfort of these socks.  The breathable compression material that they are made out of really helps out for more pleasant strides.  If you machine wash in warm water inside out and tumble dry on low, these socks are sure to last you a very long time.  They have a couple different color options and did very well as a sport performance ankle sock.  Another plus is that Fox River guarantees satisfaction for up to an entire year or you can return them for a new pair.  They are sort of pricey at $13 per pair, but I think they are well worth the comfort and long-lasting durability.
