This was the best news! I am happy to share I was selected as a 2021 Balega Impi Ambassador. Wow. The letter I received stated,
You have been selected to become a 2021 Balega Impi ambassador! We are very excited that you have taken this opportunity to help us share the Balega Difference. We are passionate about our products and believe that their performance and fit offer real benefits to athletes of all ages and abilities and make them unique to the run market. All of our socks incorporate a hand linked toe closure, which eliminates abrasion across the top of the foot. We also knit an extra deep heel pocket, ensuring that our socks fit the foot perfectly and do not slide during activity.
Balega was born in South Africa and remains connected in many ways today. Balega continues to manufacture some styles there and gives back to the local community (through the Lesedi Project and Ethembeni School). Today, Balega socks are designed by the Balega team in North Carolina (led by founders Bert and Tanya Pictor) and the manufacturing of Balega socks is done at our state-of-the-art production facilities in Cape Town, North Carolina, Europe and Turkey.”
I have been wearing Balega socks since I was introduced to them at a race at the beginning of my running career. Depending on my activity, I have different favorite styles. Doesn’t everyone? I look forward to a great 2021 with this team.
