ROAD RUNNER SPORTS DRYMAX DRY-AS-A-BONE MEDIUM CUSHION QUARTER 3 pack :: Your feet deserve the best, so why would you subject them to anything less than the supreme comfort of Road Runner Sports Drymax Dry-As-A-Bone Medium Cushion Quarter Sock? Proven to keep your feet 25 times drier than any other brand, with unbeatable cushioning and support. Run, hike, bike, do it all! Odors and blisters will never come to call.
Just started wearing these a couple weeks ago, and while they are comfortable and keep your feet relatively dry, I was disappointed by the fit. I wear a size 12 shoe and ordered the XL size (supposed to be for 11-13) but it is definitely too big. The Balegas I have, in both large and XL, fit much better and keep your feet bone dry. I noticed on these that the bottom of my feet stay dry but the sides are still a little damp after a run.
I would consider ordering these again in a smaller size because they are nice socks, just be aware of the sizing issues.
Best Socks Period
I'm a heavy guy that needs a little more cushion for the pushin'. These socks have been a great buy. I've tried several different pairs of socks out and these are by far the best. They are quick dry and cushioned on the bottom. I plan to replace most of my running socks with these as they wear out.
Great socks for this diabetic!
I haven't had these socks for real long, but my initial review is that they are very comfortable. Being a diabetic, I am always looking for comfortable, quick drying socks that won't cause blisters. So far, I think I have found that in the Drymax socks!!

Road Runnder Drymax Medium
These socks are on the thick side, so I wouldn't recommend them for warm weather wear. They have a lot of cushion and are thick enough to be very warm in the winter as well as very absorbent.
Excellent socks....got the quarter crew in medium thickness and will get the crew socks now. Have in the past used ultimax but have been having trouble finding the crew. Will use this brand now.
I purchased these socks at the recommendation of RRsports phone operator. I have issues with blisters during endurance events Marathons/Ironman events. I guess my feet sweat a lot causing my socks to get wet, hence the blisters. These dry-as-a-bone socks are indeed bone dry after I run in them. I live in Ft Lauderdale, FL and yesterdays run temp. was 93 degrees with 98 % humidity. I ran a quick 6 miler and my shirt and shorts were soaked! My socks and my feet were in deed, bone dry!!! The socks are comfortable but not as silky soft as others. But they do work. I may order the thin version as I am used to a thinner sock than the med. weight. I do love the socks and they do live up to their name sake. I'm very happy with them. They also wash well.

My new favorite running socks!
I ran in these for the first time this past weekend. They are extremely comfortable and soft. I did NOT want to take them off!
I'm a believer!
I never thought running socks were needed, just a marketing plan to get my hard earned money. Then I blistered 3 different toes in one 24 mile run, in cotton socks. I bought cheap, wicking socks from a department store; they fell apart after 2 runs. I was running out of time before my first marathon, so I ordered these. Only used them on an 8 mile run and then took a chance and ran the marathon in them... No blisters, no irritations at all, just a great first marathon at 4:17! (13 minutes faster than planned) I'm convinced!
I like these socks a lot
I wanted a sock that didn't make my feet too hot-- though to be fair, even the ones I like the most fail a little at this-- and this sock had to keep them dry. It's a tall order, I know.
The Dry Max Dry-as-a-Bone socks do live up to their name, because even when my feet get a little warm, they never feel moist at all. But as to the warmth, so far they have not made my feet feel too warm.
I'd like to add that I'm really picky about socks and my feet are very sensitive; these socks feel GOOD on my feet and that in itself is a blessing. YMMV
I'm currently training for a marathon, so it's quite common for the bottom of my feet to feel sore/tired. These socks give extra comfort/cushioning which feels very nice. However, only months earlier I purchased the same kind in the low style (for summer). This quarter sock - in the same "size" - is larger (longer) than the low sock. I need a small as it is (size 6). If the small gets any bigger, I won't be able to purchase any more. I hope that doesn't happen.
Bought RR socks over 14 years ago and still have two pair left!! If these last even a third as long will be great socks!!!!
Several time repeat buyer!
These are my go to socks for every day wear. They are cushioned just right and never slip or wear thin until literally years after purchase. I've had some of them since 2004 at least! I've of course worn some out but I wear them every day and they go through the washer and dryer too. Definitely would recommend and hope they don't discontinue or change them!
Have been a Drymax fan since the first time I tried them. Glad to find them at RRS.
I don't like these socks!
I needed to replace old socks of this brand. I wear them daily with running shoes in the operating room. I don't understand the positive reviews as these socks make my feet sweat. That's what they are not supposed to do! The socks have a polyester feel that the old ones didn't have. I bought three packs and have tried socks from two of them so it seems that it wasn't a bad batch. I will likely donate the last bag.

Socks damaged and cushioning did not meet expectations
The Road Runner socks were received with holes in them from the swift-tach used to bind them together. The plastic hangar pulled the material used to construct the socks creating the holes. Much to their credit, Road Runner immediately refunded my money...very high quality customer service. This is a good organization. Since the plastic hangar essentially serves a retail store security function, I recommend Road Runner not use it for direct mail shipments. At Road Runner's recommendation I also subsequently tried the socks to see how they would perform. For my purposes I found the cushioning to fall well short of the written copy on the website so the socks were inadequate for my purposes. I would not buy them again.
Great running socks
Outstanding running socks. This RRS sock has become my favorite. The socks are comfortable with just enough cushioning without causing rubbing or a tight fit with regularly worn shoes. The DryMax technology meets it's claims by keeping your feet dry with no chafing regardless of mileage or temperature. A great product!
Best socks ever
There are the only socks that I train in. They are comfortable, durable, and they keep my feet bone dry. An added bunus is that they dry so quickly that don't requirie washing as frequently as ordinary athletic socks.
I just bought a pack for my 10-year old. He likes them.
nice sock, worth paying a bit more.. they feel fantastic on a long run.
"Just right" socks
I use this for everyday running as well as cross training. These are the best socks I've tried. They are just right in terms of cushion. I don't like thin socks, but thick cushion socks feel too heavy, especially when wet with sweat. These wicks away moisture nicely. And they wash well and hold up well over time.
Great Fit and Feel
Have never worn black sox other than in a dressy mode. Think these look fine and fit my new life philosophy of trying new things at least once. Have been a Wright Sox wearer for years but consider the RRS Max equally good. Will consider buying more in the future.
Expensive, but good
My husband has trouble with getting blisters on the back of his heal. The roadrunner specialists recommended these socks and they did the trick. Yes, they are pricy, but they do last and helped eliminate the blisters. These are the only socks he will wear to jog in (and he's a pretty thrifty guy....!)
Excellent bang for the buck!
This sock is every bit as good as its "namesake" brand sock. I've run trail & street in both and they are both good at what they claim...prevents blisters. The RRS's wash up nice and dry fast. Too new to know about durability but they feel like they will wear well.
Salt Lake City, UT
I use the shoes for all outdoor walking other than serious hiking for which I use actual hiking boots.
They're very comfortable; I really like the gel for reducing impact.
The looks are typical of most "tennis" shoes, slightly garish and undoubtedly aimed at people younger than my nearly 75 years.

Very nice socks
These socks will wick the perspiration from your feet and keep them dry. I find that they are thick enough to provide additional cushion and keep the foot warm. Both are important to me as I have Plantar Faciitis.

true to name
Driest socks I have ever owned. I usually cheat on socks, as long as they are not cotton. But I tried these with some new Nike Volmeros and like them very much. Thick in the right areas provide padding. No sweat and no smell.
Great Socks - Bigger than I thought
These are great socks. They wash well, and are very comfortable.
I wear an 11.5, and the XL (sz 11-13) is actually a little too big. I have to be careful not to let them bunch when I put them on.
Other than that, I've used them in all kinds of weather, and my feet love them.
Wet and Cold..
I take my shoes off in the house & these socks are not good for that. They feel wet & your feet get cold even in a warm house. You will need larger shoes to workout in these, if you run all the time these might be ok.

The Most Comfortable Sock I've Ever Worn
I've been running for over 40 years, and these are the most comfortable socks I've ever tried. The cushioning feels substantial, but they're not too thick. And the seams are nice and flat, with no protrusions. I love 'em!
Lake Worth, FL
Best Socks Ever
I ran the Boston Marathon in these socks and my feet were comfortable the whole way. I wear a size 14 and this is the first pair of athletic socks I've ever had that actually fit me. Highly recommend.
Great socks! Fit perfect!!!
