    Great socks with sneakers

    By

    Walking on clouds. I wanted socks to wear with sneakers that were padded, but not too bulky. These are perfect.

    Great socks for an African safari

    By

    The socks felt wonderful on the feet. They worked perfectly for all the different types of terrain encountered. And, khaki was a perfect safari color.

    not the best all around

    By

    I was on a mission to find the best all-around active sock, so I bought one of each of the socks shown below. My criteria in no particular order were comfort, sturdiness during activity, long lasting, multi-wearing environment, and can be worn with open toe shoes (I'm older from the NorthWest). I bicycle and hike frequently. I rated them in this order: (1) tennis, (2) hiking, (3) walking, (4) basketball. No problem with any sock, just best to lesser

    Poor Quailty

    By

    Not good. The socks are too thin for a walking sock. Also they are constantly falling down. I will not buy these again

    Best socks for long walks

    By

    Ordered 3 pair of these WX for a trip to Europe, and afraid they wouldn't arrive in time, I also bought 3 pair of Abeo at a local mall. Luckily, the Thorlo arrived within 2 days, and what a marvelous sock they are. They are very comfortable and less bulky than the Abeo, so they fit well in your shoe. The Abeo were way too thick for my shoes. The Thorlo worked well to protect my feet over the cobblestones and for the many kilometers of foot pounding I did every day. I love the Thorlo WX socks and will be purchasing a few more for my next trip to Europe.

    As good as most

    By

    Comfortable and soft. Supportive at first, but seem to stretch out on a long walk. Not happy with washing machine results. Suggest washing by hand.

    Best socks

    By

    I have been wearing these socks now for over 15 years and would not use any other. However I got an offer to try your beta socks but you never followed through. These are much better since you started to roll over the top stitching and it keeps them from fraying.
