I never thought much of the Nike elite socks other then they looked pro, I underestimated how different they were! My girlfriend heard me blabbering about them a few times and decided to grab me a few pairs (I <3 her), they really feel alot better! The fact that they're cut for the left and right foot is nice, the compression in the arch feels really good, and all the extra cushioning... ohh the great cushioning If you haven't tried these, buy a pair! Your feet will thank you. Super comfy, very durable, and let's be honest they look bad@$$.
