I continue to like these socks. They have worn well. I do not give them heavy use but do use them fairly often. They have laundered well and are still in good repair.
Notice the tag line "Great for Low-Impact Exercises such as Yoga or Pilates, or Simply Lounging with the Safety of a Non-Slip Sock!", these are not socks for exercise, they're for lounging about. They're even worse than normal socks when doing anything that requires traction, as they start to fail unpredictably. At least with normal socks you know they're going to slip a bit, but with these the combination of traction and the "sweat effect" as above leave me constantly short of falling when I do any of the "Low-Impact exercise" it details as a function for it, or any other sock!
I know why it was designed this way, the less material used the more units they can ship with lower cost. It's the IKEA furniture of crappy active wear. As long as you're not using them, I'm sure they work "fine".
First, the quality is definitely on the cheap side. The weave is loose, not nice and tight like most of the quality socks I wear. I can't imagine they'd last long.
But the fact is I'll never know, because I would consider wearing them on hardwood floors dangerous. The size chart says a Large should go up to a US size 12.5. My feet are a SMALL size 12, and these are stretched so tight that they come off constantly. I just threw them in the trash now because they popped off while I was ascending hardwood stairs with a cranky dog.
I sometimes order a dozen things or more per week from Amazon (hate going to the store), and this is the worst product I've ever seen on this website. Shame on you Amazon - take it down before someone gets hurt.
For now, I suppose these are the best you can get unless you want to slip around in your sport shoes OR do not have issues slipping without spandex.
The Power Sox I've had and worn for a couple years now without a hole, and I was just introduced to Balega earlier this year but they seem to be to top tier so far. One foot sock of my pair of Traction socks developed a hole around the toenail fairly quickly, whereas both Balega and Power Sox have not after extensive use. Traction Socks would probably be fine with lighter use and more useful on slicker floors, but that isn't my case, so I'm sticking with Balega even though it doesn't have rubber traction on the bottom.
