Swiftwick Pursuit Four Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars Swiftwick is as good as it gets for scent-free, blister-free comfort, wicking, and durability. I have owned Swiftwick socks of one variety or another for five or so years now. I've worn them up and down several Cascades Volcanoes and they are now my go-to light hiking and running socks. Test Conditions: I received two almost identical sets of Swiftwick socks about four months ago and I have included them in all my fitness, trail runs, gym workouts and hikes in the hills. It's been long-pants season… Full review

Balega Blister Resist Quarter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Balega's Blister Resist Quarter is a hybrid mohair and synthetic sock from a company that does a great job with running socks. Great wicking properties help keep your feet comfortable. Smooth material doesn't tend to chafe. They tend to show wear by looking "fuzzy" but that's cosmetic—no notable thin spots or wear. Slightly more bulky than a typical running sock. OVERVIEW By calling this a "blister resist" running sock, Balega is pretty clearly pushing the narrative that this sock is somehow better… Full review

Injinji Performance Mini-Crew Sock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Injinji makes some comfortable, durable merino wool socks that might just aid in preventing blisters between your toes. Injinji makes some comfortable, durable merino wool socks that might just prevent you from getting a blister around your toes. For some people this is a real problem and these socks seem to solve the problem brilliantly. I'm evaluating these socks against five other pairs of socks that I've worn over the last few years. These socks look great and fit great—no excess, no bulging,… Full review

Darn Tough Merino 1/4 Sock Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars A comfortable, cushioned, and durable merino wool sock that might just last a lifetime. Darn Tough makes some comfortable, cushioned, and durable merino wool socks that might just last a lifetime. I'm evaluating these socks against five other pairs of socks that I've worn over the last few years. These socks look great and fit great—no excess, no bulging, no binding, just a great fit. They are comfortable right out of the packaging. I typically like to wash my clothing before using, but on one… Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Don’t believe in advertising. I feel painful when I wear sock on the road that full of rock. Terrible product. Terrible. I feel I‘ve been ripped off. Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Felt cheated, I must say. This is not a material as advertised. It did not take maybe 10-15 km of pure walking and both socks were damaged in the totally same spot actually hurting my feet as I did not expect them to go off that quickly so I did not notice that I actually walk barefoot. Do save your money. Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 2 of 5 stars Over-rated, over-sold, and bad customer service. These socks were a present and the gifter is extremely disappointed by the result. The toes sleeves are the exact same length which means none of the toes fit properly. The big toe sleeve is very narrow so it barely fits on the actual toe. The material is much weaker than advertised and visible damage ocurred after a single trail run. The grip dots fell off from just walking in a living room with floorboards. The company is trying to ride the minimal… Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars These were absolutely awful. These shoes are advertised to withstand rock climbing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. They did not hold up long at all and I only had them for a month before they started getting holes. They advertise it like you can wear these anytime and anywhere, but you can’t and I would not recommend it. Complete garbage! The product is complete trash! Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 1 of 5 stars Poorly made. Not as advertised. Pure garbage. Wore them for two bouldering sessions. The rubber nibs wore off quickly and I wore a hole in the fabric. So much for being durable and made of the strongest fiber. The company said they would be happy to exchange them, but first asked me to check the fit. What's the point if it already has a hole worn into it? Interesting idea but poorly executed. SAVE YOUR MONEY. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.  Full review
