Nike Elite Socks: Proof That Even Socks Evolve (But do sock monkeys evolve? hmmm…)

Socks have come a long way since I played serious competitive sports back in the day – we used to just throw on any old pair before lacing up for a game. But the folks over at Nike are in the mindset that if you’re going to shell out $100+ for high-performance sneakers, you should have an equally well engineered pair of socks to accompany them.

The Nike Elite Socks have targeted padding to protect and cushion the areas most prone to impact, and have developed a special Dri-FIT fabric that quickly wicks away sweat to keep your feet comfortable. *After wearing these socks in a few recent pickup games, I’m a believer.

A Brief History of Socks (Before Fancy Elite & “Super Elite” Socks Came Along)

  • Stone Age – Animal skins were gathered and tied around the ankle to protect the foot from the environment…and now we complain when we get a hole in our socks – sheesh. Wimps. 
  • 400 AD – The earliest known surviving socks were found in Egypt, and they were of the tabi style, which has one toe compartment for the big toe, and one compartment for the other toes – so they were able to be worn with sandals (in the sand, obviously).
  • Later – The modern word “sock” derives from the Latin word “soccus“, which was a loose-fitting slipper worn by Romans.
  • 1950s – Sock puppets and Sock Monkeys invented to the delight of children everywhere.
  • Now – The modern sock Capital of the World is Zhuji, China, which produces about 6 billion socks annually (and about 3 billion of them disappear every year when we do our laundry).

Is this history of socks not detailed enough for you? Then try this painfully detailed, and really verbose history of socks. Spoiler: The highlight is the late 17th century use of cotton in socks; Thrilling!

Coupons for Trail Running Shoes: The North Face & New Balance for Men and Women

Trail Running Shoes at Finish Line: Get a Coupon and Get Dirty: Trail running is one of my favorite activities, and I especially enjoy it this time of the year. The air is cool, the leaves are crunchy underfoot, and the woods where I run are usually a bit damp which lets you get a good whiff of that mulchy, earthy smell. Nice.

The North Face Trail Running Shoes for Running on Uneven Terrain

Variations in the scenery keep things interesting, and I almost have to be hyper-aware of my surroundings as the terrain is very variable. One second I might be running uphill, the next I might be jumping across a stream or over a fallen log. It’s a good mental exercise as well as physical. It also tends to recenter me spiritually as being out in nature is good for the soul. (and the runner’s high helps too!)

For trail running I usually wear a rather chunky pair of New Balance, but The North Face has recently been releasing more minimalist shoes specifically for trail running, like the Nike Free Hyperfeel. I’m really considering getting a pair of these, as they are supposed to mimic the feel of running barefooted, which is probably a cool feeling when you are trucking through the woods!

Most Trail Shoes Ship Free Unless Noted at FinishLine.com

Head over to FinishLine.com to see their entire collection of trail running shoes, and be sure to use one of our Finish Line coupons if you are interested in picking up a pair.

Fitness Trackers & Wearable Weight Loss Tech from Finish Line

Although still in it’s infancy, wearable tech is set to explode in 2014. From Google Glass to the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smart Watch, slipping on wearable technology will one day be as common as slipping on a pair of shoes. Sony has even filed a patent for a “Smart Wig” for elderly users. Crazy stuff.

sony smart wig

But while that is still a bit off into the future, wearable fitness trackers are here now – and they made a big impact on me in 2013. Before using one, I used to have to strap my iPhone to my upper arm, and use an app to track my run. Besides being rather bulky, it had limitations.

I like to track the amount of steps I take during the day as well as my runs, and the app on the phone couldn’t do that (although I am assuming there is an app for that).

Fitness Trackers & Watches: Don’t forget to use a coupon code!

The fitness tracker that I bought almost a year ago is a smart little way to log miles and keep track of calories burned. Now I just wear my Nike+ Sportwatch all the time, and it records everything from route, pace data, activity level and changes in elevation. Pop it right into a USB port, it uploads the data and recharges the watch. Easy.

FinishLine currently has a nice selection of fitness trackers, including Under Armour, Nike, Polar, and Garmin. A few of them are currently on sale and many qualify for one of the $20 Finish Line coupons as many are over $120.

Why Are They Called “Jerseys”: Brief History of Sport Shirts

early basketball jerseys

Have you ever wondered why they call a sports uniform a “jersey”? As a person who has lived in New Jersey and played sports his entire life, I can’t believe I’ve never given this any thought until now. So after some quick research, let me drop some knowledge on you…

Back in the olden days, basketball uniforms were made out of a fabric called “jersey” which was comprised of knitted wool. (Imagine playing a heated game of hoops in wool?) And why was the fabric called “jersey” you ask? Well, the material was produced, since medieval times, on the island of Jersey, which is the largest of the Channel Islands off the coast of France. Confused yet?

eli manning jersey

Oh, so, Jersey, like the fabric!?

So jersey was the actual material used to make the uniforms for basketball, and eventually the uniform just became known as “a jersey.” Then other sports, including football, just picked up using the term “jersey” to describe their uniforms…and there you have it.

Have I said the word “jersey” enough in this post? No? Here’s one more then: jersey.

Those sucked, and still do.) Well, even if it’s not September, you can check out the latest promo codes from finishline.com below for discounts and free shipping:

Back to School Sales Are Annoying; Especially Shoes

kid back to schoolNo, we’re not talking about the 1986 movie, Back to School, featuring Rodney Dangerfield. As we sweat our way through July to August, one timeless summer ritual is fast approaching: back-to-school shopping.

I vividly remember schlepping through the mall with my mom, picking out clothes that were SO not cool, and then her banging on the dressing-room door, yelling, “Come out here so I can see how it fits! Is it too tight in the crotch?!?” …*shudder*…the horror.

Now, through the miracle of the internets, you’re telling me I can avoid the mall, pick out all my kids back to school clothes online, have them delivered to my front door for free AND get a solid discount? Yes please.

Finish Line has a wide selection of boys sneakers, ensuring that he will look fresh on that first day back. Click on the button below to see all the boys shoes as well as get a coupon for 10% off of your order.

They also has a great selection of kids clothes including his favorite pro team jersey, as well as backpacks. And if your total order is over $200, view all of our featured Finish Line coupons and free shipping codes for even larger discounts, up to 20% off your entire order.

Back to School: FUN FACT:

(You’re right, there’s nothing fun about going back to school.) I’ve always thought having the summer off from school was a carryover from when our country was more agrarian and kids needed to help their families with the harvest during those months.

Wrong! Here are the real historical reasons:

1. Poorly ventilated schools (no AC!) meant extremely uncomfortable classrooms during the hot summer months
2. Hot, crowded classrooms could create environments perfect for spreading disease
3. Wealthy folks took long vacations during the summer months and so did school administrators, so school was not well attended in these months anyway (school attendance wasn’t mandatory back in the day!)

Why Do We Go Back to School Anyway? We’re Not Farmers!

There’s a movement afoot in some states to radically restructure the 180 day school year to better align with the majority of the rest of the world as American children are falling rapidly behind students in other countries. One popular alternative is the “45-15″ calendar, by which nine-week school blocks alternate with three-week vacation blocks throughout the year so there is better retention of information. Another alternative is to just lengthen the school year (the Israeli school year is 216 days and the Japanese school year is 243 days, FYI).

Now, if I were still a kid, I would think that this is the worst idea since homework. However, as a parent, I now can see the benefit to a longer, more structured school year.
