    Hi vlogman,

    I'm going to grab few pairs next month to decide which is the go to thing.

    As of now, almost for sure I'll take the Eurosocks Slam Cool and the Adidas Formotion. I had the Thorlo L3 and was not quite satisfied yet, a little bit too mushy and it's hawt.

    To follow up, I'm currently considering the Drymax V3, Jox Sox and the UA that you recommended. I would love to have them all but I'm using four pairs currently and still has six unopened so I dont want to be mean on my closet anymore. Thus, it would be great if you could give me some mini reviews on them hence I could hopefully eliminate one or two :). Cheers!

    Oh and I forgot to clarify, of course feel free to recommend any other that are good too or better than those that I have listed ;)

    And I also got two more mini questions here on the way returning, could you please fill me in as well? Thanks

    1. When will these in black and medium be back in stock?

    2. For the Barricade 7, I heard that you guys all stay to your sizes. Is that correct also?

    Thanks a ton :)

    Having tried all the socks you have listed, I have to say the UA are my favorites over Jock Sox and Drymax. I also love the Eurosocks for their feel. At first I didn't think they were as durable as others, but then realized I was just wearing them more! I wear the Drystat Silver version.
    I've found good durability from UA socks and I love the feel on my feet. I also like the height of the crew fit. Eurosocks are a tad low in that dept.

    Looks like the black mediums are discontinued.

    Yes, we stayed in size for the B7.

    Cheers,
    Chris, TW

    Power Sox by Moretz are the best I've found.

    Tks a lot mate, but I can only order stuff from TW at the moment. Not because I'm obsessive but there's a guy in my country who place bulk orders there monthly :)
    You meant this one? http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/EuroSocks_Slam_DryStat_Silver_Crew_Socks/descpageEURO-ESDSCS.html

    And why do you prefer it above the other crew of Eurosocks Chris (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/EuroSocks_Slam_Cool_Crew_Socks/descpageEURO-EUSC.html)? Cheers.

    The Drystat Silver ones don't get as stinky (although after many washes, they do lose their odor nixing abilities some).

    The Under Armour socks are very comfortable and I have many pairs. I think they are a great sock at and a good price.

    For outright comfort and feel on the foot, I think Eurosocks are tough to beat, but that's not to say there aren't plenty of other good socks out there, Under Armour being among them.

    And jorel, since you must know! I prefer to play in Skins Compression shorts.

    According to price-quality standards, of every 10 pairs, I would buy 8 UA and 2 Eurosocks.:) I have not used these brands of socks but will try them, especially the UA, great price and comes in black color also.

    In my experience Adidas ForMotion and Thorlos are pretty good. ForMotion has a pretty good price also. With Nike socks, I havent had good experience, surprising they dont make better quality socks.
