Balega NZ Socks


Built to perfection, Balega socks are composed of extra fine yarn on high needle count machines to provide plush and protective cushioning, without adding bulk. Each pair of socks are hand-linked for a fully seamless design and feature a proprietary moisture management fiber, Drynamix, to keep feet cool and dry and prevent irritations.

Balega NZ Socks Manufacturing


Made by runners for runners. We base our innovations on the needs of those hardest on their feet, while keeping our planet in mind. Tireless materials and construction research, coupled with miles of running for wear testing, goes into each and every one of our designs.


Balega helped revolutionize the running market by introducing a 200-needle thread count sock that is plush and protective, without adding bulk. Partner that with a deep heel pocket to prevent slippage, seamless toe to avoid irritation,and designs that hug your feet in all the right places, and you’ve got a sock so comfortable that you may even forget you’re wearing one.  

Balega NZ Socks Sustainability


Physical activity tends to create blister problems, and our planet has a plastics problem. Our solution: utilizing post-consumer plastic waste to create our proprietary Drynamix moisture-wicking yarn. The same high quality, durable performance socks you love, now made with recycled materials.


Compared to the industry standard of 1 in 50, every single pair of Balega socks is hand inspected by our dedicated quality inspection team to ensure they meet our highest standards of craftsmanship and quality. Our sock inspectors take great pride in their work. That is why they are featured on the stickers of each pair of socks they inspect.
