Balega, a leading performance sock brand in the run and outdoor specialty market, has opened the application portal for its first ever Impi influencer Team of runners and athletes.

“Impi” is a Zulu word roughly translating to mean “warrior.” The 2016 inaugural team will be made up of approximately 100 men and women athletes from across the U.S. that will act as an army of Balega warriors. These run enthusiasts will help spread the Balega love across their social media channels, at races and in their day-to-day life.
