Ankle socks feel cooler more ventilation i think just personal preference

oh bummer. bought 2 pairs of Adidas runner linners (very thin material, very low socks not reaching the ankle), went for a 5.5km with them last nite. felt ok at first then my feet started sliding in my shoes, and then the front of my ankle got rubbed raw by the shoe label (the bottom of the tongue). Ran funny throughout and now my knees and hips hurt for compensating the sliding feet. :(

ok... so the point of this post is: Are runner linners meant to be wore on their own? or under a normal pair of socks?

there's a silver lining though, i found out on practice session instead of during a major run event! (but of course, one should never try anything new at a major run event...)

i dun like ankle socks for fear of abrasion on the back of the feet. Normal socks serve as a ankle support too.

I wear mini quarters... it's more than a ankle and less than a normal socks...some where in the middle jus nice to cover the heel from rubbing abrasion from the shoes.

not exactly ankle ankle, but slightly above the ankle. I'm vain, I don't want to have weird tanlines :P

But having said that, it also depends on the running socks that I'm using. If it is a good pair but comes up high, I will fold it down.

Mini-quarters by any chance?? ;)

    • ^ I was thinking the same thing. I was optimistically hoping for the outbreak to mellow down by summer (for the northern hemisphere) but then I realise even if that happens, the underlying tension might still be there. So I'm just going to sit out on all international marathons until WHO declares the end of pandemic. Support local events for now!     
    • 2:55! Wow!😅  I don't think I'll ever get to that level since I'm getting on in years... I did consider doing the Sydney Marathon (September) or the CIty to Surf for Active Marathon in Perth (August) instead of my Oct or Nov race, but I'm hesitating. (I don't know if I'll get flagged/scolded by the admins for saying this here) but in Australia I occasionally come across people who, uhm let me just describe as... "not nice". They may not be openly shaking their fists in your face telling you to get out of their country, but they sure will make you feel unwelcome- even if you're not doing anything wrong, are acting on your best manners, and speak fluent English (I grew up in America). You know what I mean? 😓 Now with this virus scare going on, I'm worried they may not treat Asians too well (or even worse) 😨 The world is a big place, and there are many other places to go to in the meantime...
    • Oh, these seem to be nice running routes! I've copied the pictures and am studying them on Google maps. All the way to Changi, that seems fun!!! Thanks to posfe2 & kohpapa! 😊 Hopefully they won't cancel though, so I won't have to DIY a long run 😅    By the way, I did a relaxed 33km LSD today, two months too early for Sundown in May! 😜😜😜 Just my little act of defiance to Covid-19. While we have to be careful, I won't let my worry about this virus control my life exessively.  Hopefully, this optimism may inspire other people as well. We prepare for the worst, but hope for the best! 🥴 #Fight, Wuhan!!! #Fight, Singapore!!! #Korea, Fighting!!! #Ganbatte, Nippon!!! (Japan do your best!) #Fight, Manila!!!
