Socks!
 
I know that as tennis players, a lot of us are all about the gear, especially the shoes, but do we have any sock fans such as myself here?! I don't know about everyone else, but I'm a HUGE fan of the Nike Elite socks. Feel free to discuss/post your collections/rare socks here!

Drymax Microcrew, Nike Elite, and adidas formotion are my favorites.

If these are the 45% cotton ones, with a mesh upper and the red L/R symbol I agree. Decent value at $15 for three pairs.

I wear the above, Elites and the tennis-specific PE Nikes depending on what I pull out the drawer first.

For me, Thorlos get too hot/slippery and other sports socks I've tried aren't thick enough and give me blisters.

Agree with you completely about Thorlos.

Elite socks are the best

The Thorlos level 1s (light cushion) are really good, and they feel less 'slippery' - I use the level 3s much less now

Gold Toe, from Macy's or JC Penney. A 6-pack lasts me about 6 months.

Champion G9 low cut socks from Target. Cushioned enough on the bottom, lighter weave on top, long enough to not slide down on my heel, and not slippery nor does it bunch up. Have some Filas but they tend to slide around in my shoes.

Ever since I tried those Nike Elite basketball socks, I have been buying way too many pairs. They offer great compression and cushioning while not feeling overly stuffy like the Thorlos. In addition, they come in all colors which allows you to mix and match your shoes and outfits.

Nike Cushion Cotton Crew Here :)

I use Timberland ankle socks (charcoal and black colour). For everything (not just tennis). And for maybe 5 years now. I have a very obvious tan line :)

Wrightsock Wrightones SLX and Thorlo Experia.

At this point I am starting to believe that Nadal got the London in the bag too.
