Perhaps you let your workout enthusiasm die a little over the winter months, but you're looking to get back into it this spring. There's nothing wrong with getting yourself hyped for a workout by investing in some cute, high-quality exercise gear. Not only will it make you more excited to work out, but the right clothes and accessories will help you to get the most out of your workout and even prevent injuries. I'm not just talking about the obvious items like sneakers and sports bras, though. You also need to get yourself a few quality pairs of workout socks. After all, there's nothing worse than being about to go for a run and finding that all you have in your sock drawer is a bunch of wool Christmas socks and nylon-lace thigh highs.

Nope, you need socks that protect your feet from blisters, sweat, odor, mud, rocks and trail debris, slippery floors or stones, and harsh impacts. The right pair of socks can even improve your workout. Even if you're just doing some gentle yoga or going for a light walk, you should have socks that protect your feet while keeping them comfortable and dry. If you're participating in a much more intense activity like a long-distance race or a basketball game, then it becomes even more important to wear the right socks. Read on for a round-up of the very best workout socks for women.
