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.
I love the look, fit and feel of these socks. However, they developed holes near the ankles after only a few months wear. The holes were probably caused by my having to constantly pull them up at the heel as they sank lower and lower in my shoes as I walked. Not durable at all!
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.
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.
These provide good cushion and compression, however, the quality is not on par with Feetures. They are pilling and fuzzing after a few uses and washes (yes I wash them inside out and do not dry them). Also, it may be a nitpick, but they are not labeled right and left. Yes i know my right from my left, but it does make a difference it fit, feel, and performance.
I wear sneakers size 9, therefore, I purchased the recommandes size which is medium. Unfortunately, the front end of the socks are too thick and which creates pressure on the toes. That caused the the nails "bluish" and pain under the nails.
The XL for men is way too small. Didn’t know it was the same size for women. I wear men’s size 13 shoes and XL normally is perfect. These feel slightly small the first time you put on. After the first wash, they feel like they had shrunk even more. Bought several pairs, guess I am stuck with small socks.
I like the look and the feel of the fabric. I ordered a size large that corresponds to a size 11 shoe. Both times I have worn these for distance walking (once for a half marathon and once over 11K steps), I have ended up with blisters on the toes of my right foot. Very disappointed in the product.
I have 5 pair of these. All 10 socks have developed a hole in the exact same spot. it's on my ankle where the heel, bottom and top parts all join together.
These are really comfortable and breathe well. If not for the quality issue (which looks to be a design issue), I'd give them 5 stars. They lasted about a year before the hole started being a problem. I usually get 8-10 years out of socks before the bottoms wear thin.
