Since putting in such high mileage (14 miles a day for a few months) earlier this spring and summer, compression and ice packs were my BFF. I was starting to get arthritis in my knees, my Achilles was a little unhappy, and I felt a bit of Plantar Fasciitis creeping in on too many mornings.
Since taking the last few months off and restarting up running on the regular, I feel some of those familiar aches and pains coming back. My Achilles is unhappy and I feel some PF if I don't do a good stretch before I get out of bed.
I am so thankful for the NatraCure Cold Therapy Socks. I'm sure you know how hard it is to ice your feet and be in a comfortable post-run position. These socks help keep the ice packs on your feet.
If you watch the short video above, you can place the 2 ice packs at the bottom of your foot and either on the top or on the back of the heel. I love the back of the heel placement!

If you have issues with
- Swollen feet
- Sore feet
- Hot feet
- Aching feet
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Heel spurs
- Ball-of-foot pain
- Arch pain
According to the directions, you can heat the packs up too. Because heat therapy can be as important as cold in some cases. These socks are comfortable and soft, kinda like fleece inside the sock. I have enjoyed wearing them.

Since everyone is looking for runner-themed Christmas gifts, I think these socks could be a very welcomed stocking stuffer.
