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.
Some folks seem to have trouble with sweaty feet, which can lead to funky odors, (bromodrosis (sp?) or whatever it's called -- FZ calls it stinkfoot). These socks have really helped. They're super comfy for workouts, and unlike other padded half-socks, they vastly reduce the chance of one's poor, tired dogs running co-workers or the spousal-unit clean out 'the building! They continue to work very well after repeated laundering too, and have done so now for months, which is fantastic. For anyone with (or hoping to avoid) this embarrassing problem, they're totally worth the cost, especially for those that like to get in some exercise during lunch/dinner breaks at work, without the facilities or time for a shower. Grab a pair for every day of the week! :-)
Cute as can be. I wear a 9.5 Womens and the size Medium socks were too small. The Large socks fit just right. I was expecting these to help keep my feet dry during a 2 mile walk on the treadmill at the gym. Alas, my feet were as soaked as could be when I peeled the sock off. I was disappointed because for the price, I expected the socks to help whisk away the moisture. My 6 pack Adidas socks for $7 do a better job of keeping my feet dry.
There is something wrong with the sizing consistency on these socks. I have large foot, women’s size 11 narrow. The first pair I bought were the turquoise color in large. They shrunk to be a little too snug. So then I ordered them in black and they fit me perfectly even after washing. Decided to buy the white, and as you can see from my picture, There is something wrong with the sizing consistency on these socks. I bought three pairs of the white, two of them were at least 3/4 of an inch shorter than the other. So I guess two pair are going back. Very frustrating.
Serious if you can afford them these socks are worth it. I am using them for cycling in which my rides go from 4 to 100 miles. Some socks made my feet smell like I been stomping rooted eggs all day, others slip while some just fall apart. So far these out shine every pair I have ever tried.
These are awesome running socks combining just the right amount of softness and support. They are pricey, but worth it. And by the way, I didn’t think running socks were that important until I wore a pair of these and my feet felt so much better at the end of a run.
DO NOT BUY if you are looking for a real long run sock that will hold up on a 10+ mile long run or race day. Hold moisture like your average cotton running socks, and lacks the wicking a serious runner needs for the hardest workouts. My previous race day socks were discontinued, and I was hoping for a match based on the positive reviews. Felt no different then a typical 6 pairs for $20 pack you can pickup at the local running store.
Perfect sock for me. Won’t slip down. It keeps my feet dry and comfortable when I’m exercising. Just enough cushion. No problem with blisters when going longer distances. They wash without shrinking. I am getting more of these.
