Happy with the Look/Fit/Cut. Durability could be improved.
I have purchased several packages of these socks over the past few years in both black and white. I like the fit and the low cut. However, I have found that these socks do not last as long as some other brands. They seem to develop holes around the balls of my feet. Granted, I have regularly used these socks for more than a year, so I got some wear out of them. If socks from other brands last me 2.5-3.0 years on average, then these last 1.5 years. I am looking for another brand to try next, but I will keep wearing the rest of these until they wear out.
A Great Buy
I have a hard time buying socks. Whenever I would get Nike, and the biggest size they offer, after one wash and dry, they are too tight to wear. I bought some Under Armour (UA) socks in 2010 and still have them today, although they are starting to get little holes. I decided to go with UA this time around as I was frustrated with Nike and my previous UA socks worked so well. Saw mixed reviews but decided to give them a try anyway. I’m very pleased with my purchase. After washing and drying they still maintain the elasticity required to fit my feet without feeling like they are cutting off circulation. I went hiking in the mountains last week and after a long day of hiking, 6 hours and over 5 miles, not a single blister on my feet! My wife wore thinner socks and her feet had several blisters. I gave her a pair of my socks for the next few days and she was able to walk around pain free! I highly recommend these socks. I put them through extreme testing and they still maintained their feel, size, quality, and comfort.
They’re a winner
My son is a tad picky about the socks. If you aren’t bothered by the “toe lump” someone you know probably is so you have to know what I’m talking about. But worse, boys these days are all into brand name, even (especially) their socks. My son owns a LOT of expensive, insert other athletic name brand here, socks. But they’re cotton. Not only does the thickness give them a prominent toe ridge but it seems to get worse as they shrink and bulk in every wash. My son is also a runner and the running shoe people recommended non cotton socks so they don’t wick when running in this heat. Hmm, I always thought cotton was better because of breathability. So I started looking at “performance” socks. $5-$10 for 1 pair, and man I thought the ones he had now we’re expensive.
My favorite socks!
If you are like me (which hopefully you are not!) then you have gross and sweaty feet but luckily I found these socks years ago and they are still the only ones I will buy. They keep my feet dry and I never have swamp foot while wearing them. They are pretty resilient too I have had my current pairs for two years and the toe and heel are just now starting to thin down – I keep my toes clipped pretty short so maybe this is why I haven’t had the issues others have had?
My favorite Sock (so far)!
My shoe size is 9.5-10. The socks in the “Large” category for that shoe size were too big and loose fitting. So I ordered a Medium size which was a perfect fit for me! The socks are very comfortable a size smaller and aren’t too tight. They fit perfectly. These are great socks especially for runners, hikers or long distance walkers. The fabric is thin at the top of the lower toe area which allows sweat to escape the sock and helps to keep your feet dry. These socks are designed to prevent slipping inside the shoes as well. I don’t remember experiencing any slipping, so I guess they’re working as far as that goes. One thing I’m highly disappointed in however is the durability of the fabric in a part of the sock that doesn’t get worn or stepped on or scraped against. There’s an area that’s VERY prone to tear where the point of the gray fabric meets the black fabric at the heal on both sides of the sock. I don’t know why or how, but so far, 3 pairs out of 12 pairs of socks have been damaged to the point that I can’t wear them anymore. This might be a design flaw.
