Not all runners wear long socks, but you may have seen some runners wearing them. One of the reasons they do this is to protect their legs from dirt and grit, or even from the sun. They sometimes use compression socks, which can give more support to the calf muscles. You don’t need to use long socks, and just make sure you get a comfortable pair of socks that are soft, warm and have moisture-wicking properties. Merino wool socks are ideal.
