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.
Socks are expensive but worth it. Love that the socks come in sizes and not one-size-fits all. I have size 4.5 feet and the small fit perfectly. It is snug enough so that it doesn't bunch up in my shoes. I've been having blisters with all the other socks I've been using and I thought it was my shoe. I decided to give this sock try and I can't believe I don't have blisters. It wasn't my shoe. The material is thick, well made and with quality stitching. I ended up buying 3 more pairs. I've been using it for walking on my treadmill. Recommend.
Needed some good running socks and these were recommended. Very comfy and don't notice them at all when running. They are soaked when I am done (I live in Florida) but my feet never feel hot in them. My new favorite!
Balega is always comfortable. Only sock I wear. My only hang up is that the material didn’t hold up after two washes. Almost immediately looked dingy, like I’ve had and worn the sock for years. Literally looks worse than balega socks I’ve had for years. Bummer for the quality but they feel great on.
I purchased these after rubbing blisters & the immediately tearing said blisters open during a 5k.
It was horrible (I’ve got the scars to prove it) - I got in the car and took off my shoe and sock (yep I’m that girl that drove home from the race wearing one shoe!) got home and immediately started researching running socks & decided to try these.
I find these have nice thick cushioning, no slide and no more blisters, no more heel scars for this girl ;) I also like the features product line.
These are the only socks I run in. They are affordable, don’t slip when I’m running, and fit great and are comfortable. I’d say they have a ‘medium’ level of padding - they aren’t the thinnest running socks I’ve ever had but also not thick.
