If you are still using running shoes as a power training tool in the pool, I highly recommend giving DragSox® a try. I guarantee that after you try them, you will never swim in running shoes again.
Swimmers have been using running shoes in the pool because there has been no alternative. If you wanted to make your legs stronger and more powerful, shoes were the only option. However, that all changed when we first introduced DragSox. Now swimmers have an option. It’s not only a better option it is also cheaper.
|Purpose||Power training for swimmers||Running for runners|
|Comfort level||Very light can barely feel them when training||Invasive, heavy when wet|
|Feel of water||Excellent. You can feel the water as though your feet were bare. DragSox are soft and not invasive, more of an extension of your body than a device||Poor. Can’t feel the water because the shoes are thick and hard, designed to protect your feet from the elements|
|Effect on Technique||Positive. DragSox add resistance without affecting body position||Negative. Running shoes add weight and pull your legs down|
|Drying Time||Fast. DragSox are designed for swimmers and do not absorb much water||Day in the Sun. I really don’t know how long it takes for wet sneakers to dry. They absorb water and drip|
|Cost||$29.95||$50-$100 and more|
