Up to now I've done my running in old trainers and white sports socks. However I've seen proper runners apparently not wearing socks at all (unless they're wearing those silly little things, don't know what they're called). Do proper runners wear socks, are the padded ones essential, or no socks at all? Or is that too cold in this weather?
Do tell! I will be buying proper running shoes soon, and want to know if I need to make allowance for socks or not.
