I'm training for a marathon and these socks are great! Very comfortable and my feet don't get sweaty or blisters.

I love these socks. The extra padding is located in the right places. I often get blisters on my heels. These socks help to avoid this. I also like that the extra padding hits at the side of the foot where most people have a bunion. Fortunately these socks will allow me to avoid this. The extra padding at the ankle helps to avoid problems where the shoestrings are located. The best socks I have worn.

I was previously running with the 'running socks' from Hibbett Sports. After about 4 miles, I'd develop blisters. While planning to run my first half-marathon, I researched socks through Runner's World and these were highly recommended. I ran my half blister free thanks to these socks! I have 2 pair, and will be ordering more! :)

Don't buy anything but Bridgedale or Darn Tough. They're worth the extra cost - unbelievably rugged, amazing cushion and on the longer ones the tops stay up but don't pinch your circulation off; great for everthing I've ever worn them for. They range in thickness from fairly thin to nice and thick depending on your use and needs. Your feet can breathe so in the winter they stay warm & dry and in the summer you don't have that "something's dead" reek which means your shoes won't smell so bad either.

I have been wearing these socks for years. They are my favorite go to sock for my marathon training. I use these in the Caribbean so they hold up in the heat well. I also use them in cold weather when I visit my parents, and in the cold weather marathons I have done and they hold up in that weather as well. I have tried many other socks that have been recommended in Runner's World magazine, but keep coming back to these socks. They do get soaked through with sweat during my long, humid, summer runs, but I have yet to find a pair that does't. I also rarely blister in these socks either.

I admit it; I'm a lil picky about my socks....o.k. a LOT picky. Hate toe seams, socks that fall in the back, bunched up toes, and hot socks. When I pulled these from their packaging, I thought the "squishy" spots would be bothersome in my shoes. I was sooo wrong! Those cushioned spots are so refreshing. The fit was perfect! My feet remained cool, and I found pure comfort. Seems I have found the perfect hiking sock! Now, to find pants....
