(You need to pair them with properly fitted running shoes, of course.)
A bonus: These are great-looking socks that can be worn anywhere. I wear them to the office so I don't have to change socks afterward to hit the gym or go for a quick run. Yes, I'm that lazy.
2nd bonus: They're made in the USA, not far from my home actually. I'm not a wealthy guy, so I end up buying a lot of foreign-made goods because they're cheaper. So, it's nice to find a well-made American product at an affordable price.
Update: as a previous posted mentioned, these socks will leave your feet feeling sweaty and warm. It's a relief taking these off after wearing them for an afternoon.
These socks are no different. I tend to buy them a size smaller, as I cannot stand the large size swing that I feel plagues the sock market. Most are designed to accomodate up to six whole shoe sizes, and if you fall on the smaller end of the scale you end up with socks that have too much material and bunch up inside your footwear. This has led to many blisters, and rendered products useless to me, especially for running or marching.
Since my shoe size usually runs between 9-10 depending on the brand of footwear, I buy the mediums, which end up being snug, but in a good way. This ensures that if there is any slippage, that is only between the sock and the shoes, and not my foot and the sock.
These socks also last for years if you follow the care instructions. If you fail to follow the care instructions you the socks can develop a rougher texture, which can lead to some hot spots.
Outside of that, the only drawback is the price. I'm not sure who has decided that sock prices across the entire market should be greatly inflated, but it is a bit irritating. That is really my only gripe about the product.
If you can afford them, certainly buy them. There are few things as important as protecting and maintaining the health of your feet...they are your foundation after all. These will go a long way in helping one accomplish that, especially those who lead active lifestyles.
