The 5 Best Women's Padded Socks


Whether you're about to go for a run or slip on your booties, a solid pair of socks can save you a lot of pain and blisters. Luckily, the best women's padded socks are made with foot comfort in mind so you can wear your favorite shoes, stress-free.

When choosing padded socks, it's important to consider where you tend to put pressure on your feet. If you tend to put weight in your heel, like a lot of runners and hikers do, look for designs with reinforced or double-stitched heels. But if you carry your weight in the balls of your feet or are prone to blisters and hotspots, a pair of socks with padding near the toes might be better for you. Or, if you're anything like me, you'll go for an all-around cushioned sock to keep your feet snug and warm.

You'll also need to consider what type of shoes you're going for, and what the weather will be like. For example, tall thermal socks are great with boots, or during the cold weather, but they might not work with your flats, and could cause your feet to overheat during a hot summer.

Choosing the right socks can make or break an outfit and your day. Here's a list of the best women's padded socks on the market to keep your feet pain-free all day long.
