Anyone who has read my blog over the last 14 years knows I’m very particular about socks. I’m trying some new sock scripting, courtesy of Swiftwick.
Swiftwick’s socks provide moisture wicking as well as compression. Compression helps promote circulation and reduce muscle fatigue.
Today I’m starting with the Pursuit Two model, made from natural merino wool:
I’ll be thoroughly testing out these four different socks and posting my findings soon. Stay tuned.
I’m currently enjoying the feel of a pair of Swiftwick socks as I write this review. Swiftwick makes compression socks for all sorts of sports and activities, not just golf. Swiftwick is proud of their products as they should be. They’re made with the highest quality materials and state of the art equipment, right here in the USA. Not one Swiftwick sock is made in China.
Swiftwick Compression Socks
What exactly are “compression socks?” Compression socks are much tighter than standard socks. This compression helps to improve blood flow and circulation. This improved blood flow and circulation increases endurance and helps the athlete perform better with less fatigue.

On The Course
Despite the fabric being a little thinner than many socks I own, the Swiftwick socks provide great comfort when walking the course. I don’t find that my knees or ankles ache or tire during a round of golf, which is a great thing. It must be due to the increased circulation. Tired feet/legs means a weak base which will result in weak golf swings. From there it is a loss of power, accuracy and eventually a loss of confidence.
Off The Course
As I mentioned, I’m wearing a pair of Swiftwicks at the office today. The comfort level is great and my feet feel wonderful, even though I’m trapped in the cubicle. Around town, hiking, or even working in the back yard I feel the benefits of Swiftwicks and their compression.
While I’m not 100% sure a pair of socks can shave numbers off of your golf handicap, they can help aid in performance, comfort, stability, and endurance. Through their compression technology, Swiftwick socks can help prevent score-trashing fatigue and aches.
Ever try compression socks? They’re quite amazing. Somehow the compression of the sock helps circulation, reduces muscle fatigue, and helps prevent bone aches.
Swiftwick Compression Socks
Today was my first round testing out some new compression socks from Swiftwick. I was wearing the Vibe model (pictured right above and pictured below), an ankle high compression sock. In the heat of 96 degrees my feet felt very comfortable and dry today.

Full review of the Vibes coming after I’ve had a chance to test them for a few more rounds.
