Prosok review by Brad McLeod:
I received a pair of the PROSOK Bamboo Socks socks the other day and have worn them multiple times while out rucking/backpacking, running, CrossFit, mountain biking and doing yard work.
I love the feel of these socks and am putting them on again today to hit it up again. I will be buying another pair and using them on my next GoRuck event.

ProSok review by Stew Smith
I swam a mile (not with the socks) just to get my feet soft and then went for a ruck in my old school jungle boots I was issued in the early 90s. I don’t wear them often any more so a wet, soft foot 4 mile ruck should be a good test in the PROSOK. With a mix of running / walking fast, I had no hot spots after the ruck either. I ran through a creek just to make sure the PROSOK Bamboo Socks
socks were getting full benefit from the test. I barely had soft raisin like feet at the end of the ruck. My feet felt pretty dry actually. No blisters or hot spots formed either.
Finally, I had to dress up and wear my “funeral shoes” to an evening event at my kid’s school. This is where I usually see hot spots and cannot wait to get my dress shoes off and get home. Not this evening! Even in my leather soled dress shoes, these bamboo socks stood the test.
ProSok review by MoonDawg
Ten years ago, I bought five pair of socks made out of bamboo from a shoe store going out of business. They were so discounted they were ultra cheap. I don’t remember who made them. In the past ten years I have worn the heck out of the PROSOK Bamboo Socks socks, hiking, hunting, wade fishing, and just stodging around. They are comfortable, they wick moisture and they are indestructible. I can’t wear the things out.
If your an endurance athlete you may like this info.
If your into keeping your feet in good shape on a hike or long endurance event then you may want to try out Trail Toes: Phenomenal Ultra-Extreme, Anti-Friction Foot and Body Cream (1).
Trail Toes review by JSharp: I’m excited about this product! I’ve been Ultrarunning since January 2008 and have primarily used Body Glide to keep from chafing between my legs and to help prevent blisters on my feet. This product is superior to Body Glide in every respect. The packaging allows you to take some out and put in Ziploc bags so you can put those in your drop bags! Trail Toes doesn’t breakdown as readily in super wet conditions like multiple water crossings or in very humid climates such as South Texas. I was afforded an opportunity to beta test this product at The Bear 100 Endurance Run this past September 2013! It worked great. Being a former weightlifter with bigger than average thighs, I experienced no chafing after 33 hours of running. The best part of Trail Toes is this is a family owned business with a focus on customer service and product excellence! You could use this product not only for Ultrarunning, but Obstacle Course Racing (Spartan Beast/Ultra Beast), Go Ruck Challenges, Marathons, or literally any activity that requires chafing protection. This is now my go-to product not only for races but everyday training runs, track work, and treadmill work. Don’t leave home with out this stuff!!!!
