Marathon Socks

Some of the top marathoners wear support hose to aid in blood flow. Do they really help?

Do the new socks from Asics that claim to help pronation really do anything? I'm considering wearing them with my racing flats to provide more support without a weight increase.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
