Can anyone recommend some good semi-thick or thick socks besides Thorlos? Those slide around a bit too much.

Depends on where you live. In Florida you can get some quality socks at stores that sell them at discount price, e.g., Ross, T-JMax, Marshall's. There are many good quality brands there. I personally not only buy thick quality socks, but also wear 2-3 pairs on the top of each other for max comfort plus sweat absorption.

Champion socks from Costco are pretty thick, at least compared to nike dri-fit socks they are definitely thicker.

I have ankle cut socks from adidas and nike. The adidas ones are a lot more thick and nice.

I like under armor ankle socks for tennis, and usually I HATE ankle socks.

I agree with you. I stopped using Thorlos because my foot slipped inside the sock itself inside the show. I switched to WigWam cotton socks and they are great. They are thicker and don't slip around like the Thorlos did.

Don't get a little hot and sweaty wearing 2 or 3 pairs at a time?

Best tennis sock I have found is the POWER SOX by Moretz from
www.sockcompany.com

Best Socks for me are the ones at Costco. The
Russell Athletic DRI power Performance Crew Socks 12 Pr are $12.99
I wear two pairs and they are better than throlo's. Elsewhere they are sold for about $18 for 12.

Plus they are 88% Acrylic/11%Nylon/1%Lycra Spandex. Cotton socks lose shape to fast, these socks are excellent. Hold shape for a long time.

I agree. The costco socks are what I use. They are very comfortable and provide excellent cushioning.

Thanks,

Cheap $10 for 8 pr. socks from where ever has them on sale. I wear a brand new pr. for each set of each match I play. Always stay dri and fit snug. A small investment to be confortable IMHO.

Wow you buy a new pair of socks for each match? I would probably end up spending $300/year on socks if I did that.

wearing 2 socks makes it very uncomfy because of how the outer sock moves around. can't imaging what 3 feels like.
