Recent Running Sock Reviews

Darn Tough Vertex Tab No Show Ultra Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars A lifetime replacement guarantee says it all. A very soft, warm Merino wool sock with extra cushion underfoot. Darn Tough socks all come with a no questions asked lifetime guarantee, and that tells you all you need to know about the quality of their socks. In my never ending quest for the ultimate hiking sock, I like to test socks that are designed for other sports, such as running and biking. Being a fan of trail runners and low rise hiking boots I did all my testing of these Darn Tough Merino… Full review

Darn Tough Coolmax Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-Light

rated 5 of 5 stars Seamless construction helps prevent blisters. Coolmax polyester keeps your feet cool. Lifetime guarantee. Recently I hiked the Tour of Mont Blanc, a classic 100-mile hut-to-hut trail that runs through France, Italy, and Switzerland as it winds its way around Mont Blanc. Knowing I would probably encounter rain at some point I left my normal trail runners home and took a pair of Ahnu lowrise waterproof boots. Picking the correct socks to match meant trying the boot on with a variety of socks. All would… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 3 of 5 stars Dyneema material rubberised socks that allow you to really feel the terrain under your feet. Minimises risk of cuts when wanting to go barefoot. The FYF (Free Your Feet) is a great pair of socks for those into water sports or those that want to go barefoot. Made out of Dyneema fibre that has tensile strength 15 times greater than steel it protects your feet from any type of cut (e.g. selfish, glass), friction injury (blisters from rough terrain) or scratches (from twigs and stones). However, it… Full review

Darn Tough Merino No-Show Sock Mesh

rated 5 of 5 stars I really like it, keeps clean itself, gets dry super fast. I was looking for lifetime products and one friend recommended to me this brand and its benefits. Then I made my research and found it. The size was perfect. Because fit perfect, I really like the feeling in my feet. I don't need to wash it always because if I let it "dry" clean itself it doesn't matter if was wet or not, and always is ready for use again. Are very comfortable, are really well made it, you can feel that in your feet! Full review

Bridgedale Men's Bamboo Lo

rated 5 of 5 stars This sock is comfortable and regulates temperature for all day comfort. Durable and does not retain odor. One of my most favorite pairs of socks. I have several pair and am please with how durable they have been over the years. The fabric is soft and does not retain odor like similar all synthetic socks do. Best for everyday wear and with hiking boots in all types of temperatures and weather. My feet stay warm but not too warm and the sock has great cushion when hiking all day with a pack. They… Full review

Injinji Performance Micro Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars After the weirdness wears off they are great. I bought shoes on clearance and they have issues with most socks; possibly why they were on clearance.  The seam across the toe on my running socks dig into my feet and it hurts.  The Injinji toe socks fixed this and made mediocre shoes into pretty darn good shoes.  I had resigned myself to just deal with the shoes hurting my feet till I received a free pair of Injinji socks recently from a major outdoor catalog company. I had no idea if they would… Full review

Injinji Trail 2.0 Midweight Micro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These toe socks take a little bit of getting used to, but come with a lot of benefits including wet-weather warmth and blister resistance. I have always been a little doubtful when it came to efficacy of toe socks. I think this may be because my first experience with anything like them was the Vibram 5 Finger shoes, which are difficult to put on and tend to smell terrible. Still, I was determined to give these Injinji socks a fair chance and I am glad I did — these things are fantastic! While… Full review

Feetures! Men's Bamboo and Wool Ultra Light Cushion Quarter Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars These are the best socks I have ever had! These socks are the most comfortable socks I have ever had. They are very snug and supportive, and don't take much space in the shoe. They have a good warranty, but they hold up very well. The best Feeture ;-} is that they hug the feet and don't allow blisters to form, because they don't rub on the feet. Full review

Darn Tough Merino 1/4 Sock Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars These socks are the closest thing to perfect that I have found. I had heard about Darn Tough socks from other hiking friends over the years, and when my local REI started stocking them, I bought a couple of pair and gave them a try. I have totally become a fan boy for these socks! The fit is excellent, and stays excellent over time. Many merino blend hiking socks I have purchased over the years, from that other brand (the world's most famous merino sock), become stretched and loose fitting over… Full review
