Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopper99 Favorite Running Socks
I've had these for a year now, and they are my favorite socks for trail running. I like them for skate skiing, too, on warmer days - they come up high enough for boots. I wear a size 7.5 shoe, or 8 running shoe, and the mediums fit perfectly. I never dry them in the dryer, always line dry. They are keeping their size and holding up well.
I'm a little surprised at the other review - I've never had socks that indicated left and right ... maybe I just don't go for really expensive socks. These feel great, and supportive, though I do rely on my shoes to do the majority of the supporting! I never get blisters with these socks, and they never bunch up or slide down. They still feel good when soaking wet, which is important for trail running socks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Scarlett106 Sizing isn't precise enough
Very soft, cushioned socks. Unfortunately, sizing for a supportive sock like this should be more precise. I wear a 7-8 (depending on brand) in shoes, so I got the Medium in this sock. It fits, but the toe/heel cushions aren't properly aligned with my foot since the Medium fits such a range of shoe sizes. It kind of defeats the purpose of a sock like this if the cushions don't support where you need them to support. I should have known when they weren't labeled "left" and "right," because generally cushioned/supportive socks should be--or else they're not designed specifically enough.
If you wear a 7-ish or the low end of the "Large" sizing, consider going a size down (if they even make them in small) or a different brand, because otherwise the cushions won't support you where you need it. I'll wear these around the house but they're kind of useless as athletic socks.
