Sockwa X8 Review for Forefoot Running

Sockwa X8 Review for Forefoot Running

Not a fan of the toe shoes? (right). The Sockwa X8 (left) is the perfect alternative for those who have a hard time adapting to the toe sockets of the Vibram Five Fingers.  The overall upper of the Sockwa X8 is stretchy and completely adaptable across the entire foot, thereby accommodating to a wider foot. 

The Sockwa X8 is virtually a running sock with a sliver-thin durable outsole and is also equipped with an upper capable of providing warmth in the winter and coolness in the summer.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
