My wife loves these socks. She has foot issues, her feed are odd shaped, has callous's on them, rough, and always sore. She likes walking with me but dreads the foot pain. She got a pair of Balega socks from the local running store and loved them. She wanted several more in various colors so I purchased a bunch of these. The wears them all the times and loves them. This has reduced friction in her shoes lessening her foot issues.
