Nike Elite Tennis Socks - difference

Hey guys, bare with me lol.. hopefully last thread about this... I decided to go with quarter socks not no show cause it might be wiser to use quarters on red clay as it could stop at least some clay to get inside the shoe. But what is the difference between those two? 2nd ones are more expensive but it seem like they are thicker at the bottom, more cushion? Anybody knows the difference? Thanks :D

Lol just buy 1 of each and see which you like more... then buy more of them. Everyones feel about socks is super subjective. You just need to try them out my dude

I will say, I have generally been super happy with my Elites. Whether they are from the basketball or tennis line... they are just good
I have US 10.5 Nike shoes and socks biggest size are only US 10. But should be fine I guess

I find for me no show socks may keep dirt out of the shoe, but it's getting in the sock.

Not to mention, I'd rather not bare with you. You're free to do what you would like....:)

They sure strangely size sock in Europe. Lol In the U.S, they have specific sizes like S, M, L, and XL. S-has no sizing for Men’s, M-U.S 6-8, L-U.S 9-12, and XL-U.S 13-15. I’m sure you’ll be fine with the size U.S 10 size socks.

Some size S M L etc I should have L but some have only XL and I don’t think that could shrink in wash...

i have found that these socks wash well and really don't shrink at all. i have bought mainly the elite basketball socks and love them. i used to wear them only for tennis.. but i have gotten so many pairs i wear them everyday... and as a high frequency, often washed sock..these last and last. the cushion and compression bounces right back. these socks are almost worth the price. the basketball socks are very color and style focused..which means they are often on clearance due to new designs and colors coming out routinely. stock up when you can

These are actually the same socks, just in different colors. The more expensive ones are newer.

Thanks,

So finally they came I'm curious how they will feel.. I took XL one size bigger cause they didn't have L in stock. But should be good, I'm on upper part of L sizing.

The Tennis Elite socks are certainly very nicely padded on the soles; I bought them for this reason. Unfortunately, especially when they get saturated with sweat, I personally find that they can bunch up near the join between their thick and thin materials, and this can really irritate the outside of my pinky toes. After several wears, they can also stink to high heaven when you take them off. Thorlos are far better except in hot weather, where the thinner uppers of the Nikes provide more breathability.
