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.
So I purchased a bunch of socks like these for high quality workout socks. I researched a bunch of ratings lists for running socks and these came up on all of them. I bought the size suggested and HATED them as they squeezed the crap out of my toes. I really don't like the sensation of squeezed toes. I gave them to my wife (who has significantly smaller feet than I do) and they fit her well. I then ordered the biggest size and they're much better. My feet are about 11, the L was good for my wife and her size 7, and the XL were fine for me.
These socks are ok. They are slightly thinner than hidden comforts, so if you’re running for speed this would be a good choice. The hidden comfort still feels more comfortable which you’d feel when using for longer periods of time. If you’re looking for socks that will give you less foot pain after a long day’s work, go with compression socks. Vitalsox are the best I’ve tried so far, and even better than the overrated physix gear brand, which is so thin.
Th fit is perfect. I am a women's 8 and need a supportive sock that is soft, breathes, comfortable. I've bought this brand before at the sport stores and this is my 6th pair. I am a fan for life as long as they don't change anything. I originally got charged a ridiculous s/h fee from Fleet. It was more than the price of the socks. I complained and they comp'd the s/h. Good service! Good delivery time.
These are absolutely the best socks! They are supremely comfortable. They are the only sock I have tried that keep my feet absolutely dry and comfortable all day, and I live in a very humid climate. They are wonderful for working out. They are a little thick, so if you like thin socks you may want to check out the regular running socks by Balega. I plan on buying a pair of these each time I get paid to build my collection :)
If you’re a runner, or heavy walker, do your feet a favor and purchase true running socks. I learned the hard way that there is a difference. I won’t go back to “basic, inexpensive socks”. My feet are so much happier now that I have multiple sets of these. No, they are not inexpensive, but the return on my investment is so worth it.
These socks are so comfortable! Perfect amount of cushion. I found them by fluke searching Amazon for socks, and immediately bought some for my hubby after I put mine on. I used to be a Smartwool - and then Point 9 - sock snob, but these have become my favorite socks now.
I have been an athlete for decades. I’m really picky about my footwear and socks. I can’t believe I just discovered these socks. For me, they’re comfortable and don’t slide around. They’re a little pricey, but last a long time
I've been wearing Balegas for years and these did not disappoint. Love the feel of my high arches being supported. They're durable and comfortable. I don't put them in the dryer, which may be why they last so long.
