One of the things we Scoot a Doot chicks have in common (besides a love of Tim Riggins. Oh, and running too. Ahem…), is a fondness for words. We like to talk, we like to write and we really, really like to read. Then we love to talk and write about what we’ve read. We consume words. So, it’s not surprising that we jumped at the opportunity to test a pair of socks from The Sox Box.
The Sox Box socks are brightly colored knee socks that feature clever phrases on each pair. These cool socks aren’t just for Crossfit anymore! There are several sayings that are perfect for us runners.
Not only are these socks made in the USA, but the company also gives back with every purchase. From their website:
“We honor those service men and women who sacrifice their lives in the name of freedom and justice. Their pledge and honor for their fellow service members and country is unparalleled and for that we must both rock and salute them! Our pledge is the lifetime donation of 20% of all Sox Box profits to the Independence Fund, a non-profit group that directly supports the wounded ill and injured service members. Silliness abounds at the Sox Box but we remain serious in our commitment to our brothers and sisters who gave the most for their country without question.”
Look good. Do good. But how do they feel? Chicks Brooke and Jess each tried a pair of socks. Here’s what they had to say:
I picked the “Run Faster” version to remind myself that faster mile times are ahead as long as I keep moving.
I couldn’t wait to wear these socks! I actually put them on as soon as they arrived in my mailbox, even though I was just lounging around with the kids. They have a nice cushion on the bottom and feel snug but not too tight around the calf. They’re definitely made for chicks (and dudes) with muscle! I wore them for a weight lifting session with my trainer and they felt great.
These socks washed beautifully (no fading) and then I wore them for an outdoor run on a humid morning in Florida.
Again, I was impressed. I thought that they’d be too hot, but they’re very breathable. And just plain fun! I’ve already ordered another pair.
I was super excited to try out these socks for two reasons:
1. They have such fun sayings on them. Who doesn’t want to run with “hot mess” emblazoned on their calves?
Okay, some of you might not. I loved it! You bet your sweet booty I’m a hot mess (but in a cute way).
2. Sox Box donates 20% of their profits to The Independence Fund, a non-profit group that supports wounded servicemen and women. I LOVE a company that knows how to give back, and it makes me feel good to get AND give.
Now for the lowdown: I did a brisk walk in these (someday I will run again) and these socks stayed put. I mean, they didn’t move an inch. Awesome! I also felt super supported in the calf area, like everything was held in where it needed to be.
The fabric mix is perfect here – Sox Box are breathable with just enough stretch. I never felt hot in them and when I took them off my skin wasn’t clammy at all.
All in all, I really loved these socks. They’re cute, they work, and they support a great cause. A true triple threat!

Nothing like the power of a positive message to help boost the spirits. A wise woman taught me that.
A friend sent me a pair of socks (from a diff company) that say “Bad Ass.” “Hot Mess” would be waaaay more accurate! I want! =)
Ha!!! I love it! OR, you could mix them so they say “Hot Ass” if you’re feeling cheeky. 😉
Love the run faster socks!
They’re lots of fun, right? Maybe they will make us do just that!
