The DryMax Running Mini Crew is a unique sock that has the ability to wick moisture away from the foot far better than any other sock that we have worn. From years of wearing these socks in the field on long and wet trail runs, we knew that they do a great job of keeping the feet dry, but we were surprised at just how much of a difference there was between these socks and the next closest competitor, the Smartwool PhD Run Light Elite Micro, in our controlled testing. If you live in a wet climate or run through streams seemingly every time you step out the door (like we do), then these could be great running socks for you. We caution, however, that they were one of the lowest scorers in our testing. They are somewhat of a "one trick pony," meaning, they wick away moisture extraordinarily well, but are frankly sub-par in every other metric that we tested and rated for. But, due to wicking being such an important characteristic of a running sock, we wanted to recognize them for their strength, and were happy to name them our Top Pick for Wicking.
DryMax offers the Running line in a variety of lengths to suit all your sock needs. For a shorter version than the Mini Crew we tested, check out the DryMax Running No Show. For taller versions, try the slightly longer DryMax Running Quarter Crew and full-length DryMax Running Crew Length.
