Balega is a South African company that makes the best thin running sock I have ever put on my feet. I tend to wear them with running shoes but have used them with trail runners on occasion, particularly on hot days. The toe is seamless, the socks are reinforced heel and toe, and they are thinner on top. The socks are made from a fabric called "drynamix," which is a light, very breathable, moisture-wicking synthetic that is very soft. Comfortable, durable, great fit.
