Clearly I should have invested in the company SmartWool. They make socks. I bought some for my February camping trip. I got some for my birthday this year and just a couple of days ago, I went to the running store near my work and got some more. The new ones are for running and to eliminate the blisters that I get with the orthotics. So far... totally pleased. I used them for my 35 minutes on the elliptical trainer this morning and there was no problems. Yippee!!
