30 Surprisingly Cute Pairs of Socks and Underwear Perfect for Any Workout

It's all in the details.

You may have your favorite pair of leggings and your go-to sports bra, but do you have the perfect pair of running socks or a pair of underwear that works with all your tights? What about hiking socks?

While you can work out just fine in just your basic T-shirt and sneakers, investing in workout-specific accessories like socks and underwear can help make the experience more comfortable. If your base layers are itchy or ill-fitting, you'll be constantly adjusting, or doomed to an hour of constant rubbing and chafing. When the little details all come together, your workout is that much better. Plus, workouts are just a little bit more fun when you have wiener dogs on your socks.

Here, we've gathered 30 of our favorite sports-specific socks and undies that'll help make your next workout the best one yet.
