These are definitely in the top of any running sock I have purchase. I love them and now own several pairs. They are a great warm weather running sock providing optimum cushioning along with sweat control and allowing your feet to breathe. Will continue to buy as I need more.

I wear a size 6.5 and ordered Extra Small, and they fit perfectly. The "S" stretch too much. Excellent, feet don't sweat!!

I actually purchased these for hiking/trail running. I find one of the most uncomfortable scenarios for my feet is walking or running downhill, particularly over broken rocks. I find my toes tend to press against the end of my shoes. Fortunately, these socks have padding that wraps around the toe area as well as protecting the heel and ball of the foot. Yet they're lightweight and cool because they don't have padding in areas where you don't need it.

After 7 hours of hiking and trail running my feet felt worn out, but dry and free from pain and blisters! You can't ask for a sock to do much more than that!

My only criticism is that these socks are obscenely expensive (for a sock, anyway!). But I suppose in this case you get what you pay for. Spend 13$ on a pair of socks, or wear dollar socks and maybe end up with blisters or cramped toes.

These socks were recommended to me by an experienced runner. The extra padding on the heels and balls of your feet provide an extra cushion of comfort when running long distances. They are moisture-wicking, as well. I would recommend these to any serious runner.

I recently started running, and I've used these socks on every run. I haven't had a single blister, and my feet feel very well cushioned as I run. However, my feet can still breathe, and I don't end up all sweaty and gross. I would strongly recommend these socks to anyone. BTW, I ordered them in a size small, and I wear a 7 1/2 to an 8 in women's, and they fit great!

Every sock isn't perfect for every person, but Thor-lo Experia's work great for me! I got a small for myself (I wear a women's 7 shoe) and a medium for my brother (who wears a men's 8.5 shoe). My brother has done several half marathons (and just finished his first marathon (YAY!), and he will not run in any other kind of sock. I used to get the occasional blister, but wearing these socks (I also like SmartWool) has stopped that. Highly recommended!

Prior to purchasing these socks, I had tried no less than ten different types of running socks. I even tried the ininji toe socks. These Thorlos are simply the best socks I have ever used for running. They are thick with padding on the heel, ball of the foot, and around the toes which provides extra cushoning when the foot impacts the pavement. I have high arches and the extra padding does wonders. The rest of the sock is thin which enhances breathability but is also strong enough to fit snugly around the rest of the foot. I love these socks.

Now, the reason I give these socks four stars instead of five is the price. Thorlo is definitely proud of their product. No single pair of socks should cost as much as these do. While they can be found slightly less on Amazon, I have not seen them in a retail store for less than $13.50. But I guess Thorlo will keep getting my money. Anything to make a run more enjoyable is worth it.

These socks are absolutely fantastic. Went through a number of cheaper alternatives, and these socks are definitely worth the extra expense.

I run an average of 20-25 miles a week (6-8 miles per run) on treadmills in a poorly air conditioned gym. With previous socks, sweat build up caused slippage between my feet, socks and shoes, leaving blisters after lengthy runs.

So far, this has not been an issue with these socks. They fit snugly, don't slip, and my feet sweat considerably less.

They run true to size and, for those that care, are fairly low cut and leave little of the sock visible when wearing running shoes.

Update. April 8 2014.
I was thinking that it might be just a new me and I would get blisters no matter what I'm wearing so I ran half marathon wearing my trusted wrightsocks and carrying wide bandages in case I get more blisters. Weather was cool, shoes were the same but there were no blisters, even considering that skin on bottom of my feet was still damaged after that run in thorlos. I did check them one more time to make sure there is no foreign objects in there that might cause the damage and there were none...

I've been running endurance races (full and half marathons) for the last 10 years and tried a big number of different brand socks. My first ones were made from cotton and I would wear them inside out to have all stitches outside. Since then I went to wearing real running socks and when I first tried Wright socks brand with double layer I was a very happy runner. I would still get occasional blister after a very long run on a really warm day but nothing major. One day last year I went to a new running store opening and they were giving out thorlo socks as a part of their promotion. They looked cool and you get feeling of extra support inside your shoes. I ran in them short distances, up to 6 miles, and they felt fine except my feet were a bit warmer than usual after the run. For the long runs I was still wearing my Wrights until one day I've decided to wear thorlo for 10+ miles run. It was a cold and windy day (around 30F) and I was thinking that extra warmth from these socks won't be a problem. However around mile 6 I felt like I have bunched sock under my foot. I sat, took it off and found a big blister under the ball of my foot. There was no debris in the sock. I switched socks and after when I finished my run (another 6 miles) my both feet were hurting. When I got home I had that looked like a small pillow on the bottom of my feet, right at the ball of it. I had to walk on my toes until the end of that day. This never happened to me before, even with old fashioned cotton socks. Was it just a problem with a single sock, the way it was made? I don't know. I have another pair of thorlo socks, with silk, which I haven't tried for long distances so I might give it another try one day, not for the coming race though...

Now this is a split opinion review. My wife is the more avid runner, having some half marathons under her belt.
She absolutely loves these socks, she saids they deliver a extra cushioning and a excellent wicker effect.

I am a different chapter, I do have diabetes, run much less then her and I hate any "unregularity" at my feet.The cushions drive me nuts. I have limited feeling in my feet anyway and the bunched sock feeling is much worse with these socks on my feet.

I can understand that other people love em, I am a nightmare with anything on my feet.

Try them and make your own picture.
