Seriously these are the best socks I've worn my life. Doesn't bunch up, doesn't lose the elasticity, and provides a cushioned bed. The majot downside is it's $16 a pair.

Any recommendations that's a little cheaper?

Yes. Wal-Mart sells some black and grey moisture wicking socks that are sports oriented. They have held up extremely well for me playing tennis, basketball, baseball and other activities including just wearing them for the day. $4 for two pairs of socks.

i got em for $10/pair at the outlet early Spring. They are pretty solid and offer unique support. Depending on the shoe I wear I have experienced "drop sock" with them. I usually wear them with Barricade VI's.

I'm going through about 4 pairs a month. They are by far the best sock ever. Expensive, but comparable to other brands good socks. The thing is, they fit so well, my big toe nail is tearing a hole too quick.

I've worn a lot of different socks for tennis and nothing has come close to these. Expensive but worth it. I wear these with my Barricade 6's, too.

Do these socks provide forefoot and rearfoot cushioning and do they breathe well? I tried some Nike Dri Fit cushioning running socks but they were too elastic and felt clamy.

Right now, I use Thorlo thick cushion running socks but the only downside is that they don't breathe well, moisture management is okay.

They provide cushion for the whole footbed. I won't say that they don't breathe well, but if you compare them to Thorlos it's like night and day in breathability

I just checked the TW site and they are selling 2 pairs for $17 which is cheaper than Nike or Thorlos.

I had a chance to use them for over a month and they are great. They don't feel as clamy as the Nike socks and although they don't offer as much cushion as Throlos, they breathe much better.

So far so good, now wondering how long they will last.

I'm curious. How can they be the "best sock ever" if they only last you about week?

I grew up always wearing two pair socks to prevent blisters. Even when I try the newer moisture-wicking stuff, without doubling up, I get blisters.

So, do you all who use these just wear one pair? If so, no issues with blisters?
