The best socks I have ever owned

5

I used to be a big fan of socks that used the double layer technology. However, after reading the reviews, I gave these a try and am now a convert. The have cushioning everywhere you need it and are thin and breathable along the top. Additionally,unlike lots of other socks, these fit well across the toes. I still use double layer socks for my shorter weekday runs but always use these socks for my weekend long runs. The only downside is that they discolor over time, especially if you use any type of anti-chafe on your feet. These would be absolutely perfect if they came in black.

No question...since I started wearing these socks for my runs my feet stopped barking at me and are happy once again. These socks are comfortable, don't slip off my foot at the heel, and can take me through a tough run without my feet ever even hinting at a blister. And, for those of you like me whose feet just happen to sweat like nobody's business, these socks keep my feet cool and dry. They are the best out there.

Best EVER!

These really are the best socks ever and I am SO happy Road Runner is finally carrying them! YAY! Cushion, breathable, great fit, great wearing. I've tried Wright sock and Iron Man and a few others and Balega's beat them all. Can a sock really be that great? I mean -- it's just a sock, right?. Try them and you'll never go back.

This sock was made in heaven!

This is the one running item I NEVER change (well, OK, I do wash them and change them out). For the longest time, I was disappointed that RRS did not carry these socks. My devotion to RRS went way up when this sock was added to the product line. Now, if we can only get Balega to offer more colors in this sock.

Great Socks!

5

I've worn many different brands of socks and these are one of the best. They are so soft, smooth and comfortable. As soon as you put them on, you'll feel what I mean. They have good support with a good weight; not too heavy or too lite. The only thing is RRS needs these in the 'quarter/anklet size'. I got those somewhere else and that's when I first fell in love with them!

Love this sock; started training for half marathons and ran two in May. I bought the size medium and it was too large so I gave them away and bought small which is perfect. Pilled in the laundry until I placed them in fine mesh lingerie bag and they're fine. The person I gave the size Medium to, really likes these socks too. They don't slip down into the shoe and are soft.

Honestly I don't care paying [$] for a pair of sucks if it is going to let me run a 10km run under the rain and end up blister free, I'm really delicate on my feet but since I discovered balega socks I don't have to worry about it anymore, I just love them! Now go and get a pair of this babies!

Awesome!

These are the best socks for running that I have tried. They are thick enough that they don't wear out and feel cushy on your feet. But not so thick that you feel them when you are running. They also stay in place and don't move on your heel.

New colors seem smaller?

I purchased several pairs of these in black and candy pink recently. I LOVE the colors- I've worn just the plain white ones for years and they are my favorite socks BOTTOM LINE! I don't just wear them for training but all the time. I was mildly disappointed when I pulled out my first pair of candy pink socks to note that they are now slightly smaller. At first I thought I was imagining it but when I compared them to a white pair I previously owned and the black pair I bought at the same time the pink is smaller than both. I don't really get why. I wear a size 10.5 in the Kayano running shoe and the M Balega has always fit me great (M=women's 8-10.5). The black and white still fit fine but the pink are a tiny bit snug. I may try sizing up in the future and see if a L is too big but for now I bought a ton of the pink in a M and I've washed them all so I'm stuck with them. Also to note- the candy pink is VERY vibrant! Super cute if you love hot pink!! I've also seen the greenish/yellow color in person and it is more like a neon yellow rather than a greenish color, just to note ;) *yes I would recommend them to a friend providing they try them on first.

Best Fitting sock I have ever owned

This is the only sock I will wear while I run or do other exercise. It was recommended to me by a runner and i have been wearing them ever since! I wish the sock was available in black as well

I FREAKING LOVE THESE SOCKS

5

I adore these socks. I've worn feetures and REI wicking socks, but they're not cushy enough for me. I wear these even in the summer. I've never had a blister, and the socks never slip into my shoe while I'm running. What more can you ask for in a sock?!?

Love these socks!

I love, love, love these socks. Haven't had a blister since switching, and I've tried nearly every other brand of sweat-wicking socks. These are the only socks I will run in, and I'm so glad that Road Runner is now carrying them!

for running , cushy in the right places

5

Balega socks are the best. Really and these are cushy on the side and down to the bottom of the foot. They are thinner on the top so they are not so warm. You really don't want any other socks than these for running other than another Balega sock.

New favorite socks!

5

So glad I bought these at the suggestion of two of my local Roadrunner employees. These are so wonderfully soft, they almost feel like nothing is on your foot, but at the same time your foot is being swaddled in loveliness. I just went on my first run with these so I can't speak for the durability but they feel very well made and that they'll hold up. I love that you can't feel any seams, which is great while running. I felt very good cushioning with no rubbing. Also, the heel tab is a must for me. The sizing is great as my socks usually end up being too long even when I buy the right size, but these are perfect (I wear a size 8/8.5 and the Small is perfect) I will be buying more pairs in the near future.

Best Sock I Own

I use this sock primarily for running. Has a nice feel for those extra long runs. Enjoy the extra cushion and wicking capabilities. This is the first sock I reach for whenever I run.

The only thing I'll run in!!

These are the only socks I will run in anymore, just the right amount of cushioning, they don't slip, move, or fall down, and there is no bunching. Any other socks and I feel every seam and crease. The Ballegas hold up really well in the wash too.

Best sock ever

5

Best fitting and feeling socks I have ever worn. I'm always on a quest for the perfect sock and i believe that i have now found it.I have a couple of pairs of the Balega racer thin socks and like them a lot, but these are nirvana. They are very comfy and fit superbly. They wicked moisture well on my 10 miler yesterday and my feet felt dry after my run. The high rear tab is a great feature. It prevents downwards slip, which is my most hated feature of a low cut sock. I have some other double tab socks that I only wear around the house because of slip. I'm loving that new colors are coming out and can't wait to buy some more. If you're on the fence about these, try a pair. They're awesome

Great Socks!

I've tried most every sock for distance, and these are my favorite! My feet sweat a lot, unfortunately, and these socks help me manage blisters best. As far as comfort and performance ... give these socks a try!

The best socks around!

5

I have warn this brand for about 7 years. So glad to see that more people are carrying Balega. These particular socks are my favorites because they fit well but are not tight across my toes which prevents the destruction my toenails during long runs in the Florida heat. They wick moisture well and are a little more substantial then my ultra lights which is great when I am drenched since they do move the moisture away. When it gets below 55, for me, I have to move to a crew sock, but that is more due to the cold legs then the ability to keep my feet warm. The colors now are great and match my shoes and they hold up well. Great socks.

Wear them for running and brick-work. They're light and they stay light even for a heavy sweater like me! These are my go-to socks for big events.

Best socks, ever!!

5

These are the best socks I have ever slipped on my feet. The bottom of the socks are very plush and provide so much cushion and comfort to the soles of my feet and the top of the socks are thin enough to allow some breathability to my feet. I've had these socks for a year and, wash after wash, have maintained their plushness. I bought a couple of pair for my husband and he loves that they don't slip down; a constant problem he had with countless other brands of socks. I love these socks and highly recommend everyone buy at least one pair to try. They're a little pricey, but definitely worth it!

First socks that I've tried that didn't cause blisters

5

I have tried 3 different brands of running socks to try to prevent blisters while running a half marathon over the past 4 years and this is the FIRST pair EVER that I have finished a race with NO blisters. I've tried taping my feet, 3 pairs of shoes to no avail until now. Wore these with a pair of my favorite running shoes, put two blister blocks on (tried before and still got blisters) and these socks were very comfortable and NO blisters!! I am thrilled I bought 2 pairs and will be buying more!

Great socks

5

I wore these "no show" socks for 4 half marathons in four consecutive months (September -December 2012). They are incredibly comfortable. Zero blisters, no excessive moisture retention on runs, cool in September runs, warm in December runs.... just overall fantastic socks for athletic wear ... and sometimes I "cheat" and wear them around the house. My normal half marathon times are 2:05 to 2:10 so I am NOT a "race horse" but being well into my 50s, these socks are truly comfortable for these athletic events!

Absolute favorite running socks.

Perfect fit and comfort. Can be a little on the thick side if your shoes don't have enough wiggle-room in the width, but usually no problems. I've started wearing these as everyday socks because they are so comfy. Not cheap, but your feet are better for wearing these vs the typical cotton based socks most people wear (and that I used to wear). Could use a better color selection from RRS. I know they make other ones I don't see here. Large size fits my 10.5 borderline D/2E foot perfectly.

Great with Minimalist Style Shoes!

5

I have a mild bunion on my right foot, so it's important to protect it from too much road shock and friction. However, I also am an enthusiastic fan of today's light-weight and super-flexible, "minimalist" style running shoes. The Balega Hidden Comfort socks allow me enjoy my nearly barefoot runs without bruises or blisters. They are light, yet very durable. Moreover, their padded tabs really protect my Achilles tendons. In short, I love them - and you will too!

Perfect contour of the foot, cushy too

5

After having problems with almost every other sock bunching or not fitting properly, I have finally found the PERFECT sock! It contours the foot perfectly! There is no bunching on the toes or sides. The sock is cut low enough to keep me cool, but the little tab in the back keeps it from slipping down into the shoe. It's padded enough to provide some cushion, but it's not so thick that it is hot or heavy. Buy these socks!

These really are the best ...

These really are the best socks but they are spendy, and Im trying to find a cheaper alternative. However, the pairs I own have lasted quite a while, probably over thirty washes, and around 85% of the "original feel". By the end of writing this review I prob. will have convinced myself to buy them again :(. Pros: cushioning, feel, durability, moisture-wicking. Cons: Price, colors.
