Meta Tabby styles represent a quantum leap forward in the design and function of a low-top running sock. The Meta is a completely new design. The mid-arch compression holds the sock in place and the new split cuff tab helps protect the front of the ankle from shoe tongue abrasion. In true DeFeet fashion, its also extremely durable. The Meta features sculpted terry loop construction that forms an advanced meta-pad specifically developed for forefoot and mid-foot strike performance. The Meta also features imperceptible hand-looped toe seams. Meta has already received rave reviews from testers for comfort and moisture control. All Meta styles are constructed with "earth-friendly" recycled polyester fibers that are certified *CoolMax EcoMade to wick moisture and help keep feet dry while running on pavement or, off the beaten track, backcountry trails. If you like to run low tops, the Meta is your sock.
