Would these socks work well as running socks?
If you don't mind having a higher sock, this would work. They are a medium weight so will be warmer but wool wicks the moisture away from your foot to keep it dry.
Dear fellow sock wearer,||I am not a runner so cant give you really precise info, however, they have a well cushioned interior, and the merino wool is resilient and gives a bit of bounce. Apart from the bright bright yellow colour ( possibly invaluable if you are running in one of those dark Northern winters ) I would say these would be just right for your purpose.
