Making the list under "Best for Smelly Feet," the magazine summarized their Purra Athletic review as follows:
For an antimicrobial sock that covers beyond the ankle, we’ve been grabbing a completely new-to-us brand from our test pile. Purra Performance recently released its first athletic sock, and so far it’s impressed us on our daily runs this summer.
Tester Morgan Petruny even wore them over multiple days to test the funk factor.
“After back-to-back-to-back runs in the same pair of Purras over three days, these socks smelled much better than my On Running socks when I gave them the same multiple-wear treatment,” said Petruny.
(To do it, Purra embeds Copptech's zinc antimicrobial technology into the yarns. The result is a soft, smooth material that deters bacterial growth at the cellular level to help keep runner stank at bay.) While the socks can feel a bit slick inside looser-fitting trainers, we noticed this only on tight U-turns at the midpoint of out-and-back runs, and when cruising down steep hills.
