Don't know my R's from my L's bought socks

My wife has bought me some running socks. However one is labelled L, I assume for large and the other R, I assume for regular. But they feel the same on my feet. Do I have one foot bigger than the other? Could explain the running around in circles.

The are marked individually for fit on your Left and Right feet..

The padding is in the correct place to help pressure points and to prevent blisters. Enjoy !😊x

Right = R. Left = L. But I think you are having a little jest with us Seaspaniel.

You will note Jan and I are polite enough to respond just incase your wife hasn’t already explained fully

I was in a hotel in France. Hot water from shower scalded me. Complained. Manager said "This is France! The tap you turned marked 'C' stands for "Chaud' which means "Hot".

Then I pointed out the OTHER tap was ALSO marked "C"!!!

"Oh that?" he replied with a Gallic shrug, " - that is for the benefit of our English speaking guests..."

We're you ever a hotel manager in Marseilles Seaspaniel? πŸ˜‰

Well Jan and Millsie-j answered your question.

But the I thought - Did you only get one pair? Were they mismatched?

Similar problems in Italy, S for Small and D for Downright Huge... HeleneCorsa and I both suffer from that affliction. It may change post Brexit of course ! :)

Problem solved. My wife has informed me as I have two left feet there is no need for R. Anyone with two right feet can now find an absolute bargain on ebay.

At least you get both socks back from the wash.

I made the mistake of getting a pack of two pairs of these. It increased the time to put my socks on by a good 5 minutes. Trying to work out if I had a right and a left sock, and then which feet they went on, often first thing in the morning, was all too difficult :D

Stumbled across this, and it made me giggle. What are you up to Seaspaniel?

Park runs on a Saturday and looking to be able to do 10k without stopping!

Met up with a work colleague for his 100th park run. He got a shock as I cruised up alongside him at 1km in. Also did a park run with one of my children (Age 23 living in Nottingham) just 3 more of them to go. Also I'm in Cornwall in July so looking to do the Eden Project park run which comes with free entry for runners and supporters into the project.
