4.0 out of 5 starsVery Comfortable and Cool Design. But Not Worth $15.
Reviewed in the United States on January 7, 2018
These socks feel like butter! Cool design and are very comfortable to run in. Not sure how the antimicrobial feature comes into play yet. Technically they aren't "no show" since the heel blister guard sticks out of the back. For the most part I really like them. 4 stars because they definitely are not worth $15, maybe $10. Maybe.
Edited to add that these socks sprung holes in them after only about 4 months of light usage.... These socks are very comfortable and fit very well but the antimicrobial properties seem to be nonexistent as odor was no less than any other regular sock I have had. This was the main property I was looking forward to so a big disappointment.
Wore these for a few hours (just walking around the house, smooth hardwood floors, no running) and I could see the honeycomb pattern starting to unravel and fray. I’ve recently had many socks by Puma and Addidas that fell apart in months, so I saw the signs. Comfortable and great don’t mean much if they fall apart so quickly. Especially for $13 a pair, no way I’m going to deal with that. Returned these and still on a search for fantastic socks that last. So far the best have been Bombas; about 4 years but starting to get holes.
Wore this sock one time as a casual sock and it’s already beginning to deteriorate. What a disappointment! The only reason I purchased these socks is to primarily run in them. Glad I didn’t run in them, otherwise I could see me getting blisters from the sock bunching up from them deteriorating.
