That's EXACTLY what I hated about them to each their own I guess
The Adidas Crews that are sold in Europe are excellent and last long.
they are very expensive.
i am currently wearing these: http://www.tennis-point.com/product...Nike/Dri-Fit-Half-Cushion-Crew-3er-Pack1.html
i think they are pretty good especially for the price.
did you try them?
no, I should give them a shot probably.
I stocked up on the Adidas ones, I really liked them a lot -- I think I got about 12 pairs unopened now...
it is prob just becuase i have a extremely narrow foot so i need a really thick sock
I've been using the same 5 pair as the main ones i use for a few years, great cushioning, no show with a tab, haven't gotten a hole in any of them yet. I don't know what ones they are, and I haven't seen them anywhere in a long time. I've used some others, but there's only a handful of pairs that fit my size 15 foot, and none of match the comfort and cushioning of my current socks.
Ive been suing Adidas formotion for awhile hands down best sock ever used. Mum got me a pair of Nike dri-fit stability. Ive work them golfing and they felt amazing. I imagine tennis they will fair even better. Only down side is, is that they arent crew :/ I wanna cutem but that would look rachet.
UA HeatGear Crew
HeatGear doesn't breathe well compared to either Adidas Formotion or Nike Elites.
I like to wear elites.
Thorlo Level 3. Period. I've tried darn near every other brand and these are the only ones that stop the blisters on the REALLY hot summer days where you sweat buckets and have to play for hours.
Only problem is that I have to order my shoes half a size larger for them.
Can't wait to break out my Thorlo level 1 for my men's league on Wednesday. Might have to try some level 2's as well.
Never been a fan of the super thick socks, though.
the ones that are on sale at marshalls
Same here. I pick up a pair of Nike or Adidas crew socks every few months. A couple months ago I scored a 5-pair pack of Asics crew socks for $4 total.
Smartwool PhD Running. They come in varying thicknesses and heights. They are pricey, but they last forever.
Okay, trying to find the perfect socks. My favorites are adidas Formotion, Drymax, and Vitalsox. All great sox.
Revising my previous statement, Thorlos are just too thick for me. Really felt like my feet were sliding around too much and compromised the lockdown fit of my shoes.
My #1 are the Athletic DNA socks, nice and thin and soak up sweat well.
Close #2 are the Eurosocks.
Thorlo's come in thin, medium and thick. Try the thin Thorlo's. Best tennis sock every made, IMO. I've got some of the original thick Thorlo's that are older than half of the poster's on this forum, and they're still it great shape.
Elite Platinums from Nike cause they look sick.
Thins still are too slick imo.
Agreed. The material in Thorlos are far too slick for me.
I have a pair of Nike Elite, I don't know why but I thought they are slippery.
I prefer the normal Nike Dri-Fit more.
A revised assessment on my part:
3. adida formotion.
These are all great sock in my mind. Just don't care for Thorlos.
I just went to Sports Authority and they were having a sale buy 1, get 1 half-off. Never seen them on sale. I bought 4 pairs of the Thorlo Experia ankle socks. They wick better and are lighter. They feel great. I plan to wear them under Nike dri-fit crew socks
I like sock specializing companies...because they specialize in socks.
I completely agree with the first two, vitalsox are just a bit too expensive to buy a few pairs. I have over 10 pairs of Drymax tennis crews. Fitsok is my favorite for the black crews and they're fairly cheap for $14 for 2 pairs.
I used Thorlos for years. Lots of cushion so they are comfy but I kept getting blisters. Nobody has mentioned Wrightsock but their socks might be my favorite. I have tried the drymax socks but they are very abrasive and not comfortable. The Vitalsox were comfy and fit well but not durable. I wore through them fairly quickly which was disappointing. Right now I only use two socks and I am torn between them:
The Wrightsock SLX has a very dense terry cloth interior. They fit well, wick moisture well, durable and are comfy. The Thorlo Experia socks are similar but with thicker padding and thinner materials elsewhere. Its a very good sock. I haven't had the Experia socks long enough to comment on their durability but so far they are holding up well.
