These socks fit a bit small, not uncomfortably so, just tight enough that they don't shift/twist at all in my shoes even during a very busy 12hr shift at the hospital. I didn't give a 5 star rating just because I expected them to be a little thicker on the ball of the foot and the heal...with a little more padding they would be perfect. Additionally, the company is fantastic to working with, I had some issues with Amazon not updating my shipping address and they were shipped incorrectly. As soon as this company found out, a new pair were in the mail to me (at no additional cost to me), without even knowing whether the original pair were being returned to them or would be a loss! I love a company with great customer service and will definitely order from them again.
Fantastic. Comfortable for 10-11 hours on my feet with my running shoes on concrete. Snug fitting but not tight feeling at all, no seams, and you don't even know they're there. Good at heat and sweat wicking and well worth the price. They also hold up well over time - although I do baby them and I don't put them in the dryer, the pair that accidentally went through seems to be just fine, and hasn't changed in performance. If I switch back to my old socks, I notice a real difference, and not in a good way.
So I messed up! I ordered the wrong socks and the awesome people at The Joggers Corner worked tirelessly to help me return the incorrect socks and obtain the Balega socks I needed. Now I have the perfect, breathable socks that will assist me to the finish line of my 13 miler on Saturday.
These socks came recommended to me when I was having trouble with blisters. I changed my shoes two times and finally the socks. I don't get blisters in them at all! I am a beginning runner and run about 4-5 miles a day on the trail. I run through creeks and wet grass and these socks don't disappoint. I had to learn a lot about clothing and shoes when I started running but I had no idea how important socks are. I will not wear anything else.
Balega socks are amazing. I purchased this as a "trial" since I get blisters on my feet. I have no complaints. They are not too thick, and keep my feet dry. I also went on Amazon and purchased the Blister Resist and they are very comfortable. I just ran 7 miles and NO blisters!
