Move over, Vendetta. V is for Balega’s V-Tech arch support system that defines our beloved Enduro socks. We’re delighted to say we’ve made these iconic and all around go-to socks even better!
“The V-tech arch support is my favorite thing about the Enduros,” Balega Impi team member Amy Schlotthauer says. “The support system boasts a contoured fit around the mid arch which keeps the sock on my foot and it never moves around!!” Amy explains. “No more digging socks out of my shoe mid-run!”
In addition to our V-Tech arch support system, which helps provide the ultimate performance fit, our new midweight Enduro socks feature enhanced compression bands on the top to keep your arches supported. Our moisture wicking Drynamix® fibers and ventilation panels keep your feet feeling breezy and sweat-free. And thanks to our reinforced, extra deep heel pocket and pressure-free grip system, your socks don’t slip down.
“The new sock attributes are game changers,” Impi Lauren Greene said. “I love the new colors, the seamless toe, the perfect amount of padding in the heel and toe yet thin and breathable at the top.” A cool triangular design on the top doubles as ventilation to cool down your feet.
“I’ve worn them running and felt amazing, and I’ve also worn them on hikes where I especially love the higher cut,” Lauren continued. “I normally run in Balega’s Hidden Comfort socks for the extra cushion, but with the way Balega engineered the new Enduro, I think they will be my new go-to. Same feeling of cushion, yet more breathable space. They also just feel softer overall. I love them! I could nerd out all day about these socks! Also, the new colorways rock!”
The new Enduro Quarter length socks are available in five colors, including: green/grey heather; charcoal/cobalt; midgrey/ink (with a splash of orange on the heel); black/charcoal; and white/midgrey. The Enduro Low Cut is offered in: midgrey/carbon (with an orange accent); midgrey/pink (with a pop of teal on the heel!); white/midgrey; and black/charcoal. The Crew length Enduro is available in two classic color combos - white/midgrey and black/charcoal.
Sensitive ribbing on the top keeps socks securely in place (no chafing!) and eliminates uncomfortable pressure marks. And plush cushioning under the sole keeps your feet happy and enhance performance without adding extra weight to drag you down. And of course, like all Balega socks, our handlinked toe closure creates a seamless, non-irritating fit around your toes.
"With the Enduro, you do not just endure your run,” Impi, ultra runner and wellness advocate Cindy Barbour said. “You embrace your run with comfort and style.”
