Rated 3 out of 5 by from sizing chart inaccurate Thorlo always excellent, but the sizing chart for this product is misleading. My shoe size is 12 (every shoe I've bought in the last 5 years has been size 12) and according to the chart my appropriate sock size is XL, but XL turns out to be *way* too big - the heel pads which are supposed to cushion the bottom of the heel ride way up so that they're not under the foot at all, but fit against the back of the heel. Size chart should be revised to indicate that sock size L is a better fit than XL for shoe size 12 (and, I'm guessing from how poor the fit was, also for shoe size 12.5 and 13).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Digging these as dry day runners Second favorite sock out there. Love the light weight tops and cush heals and forefoot. Collar is just about the right height. since trying Injinji socks two years ago I have been faithful to that brand, but i saw these and had to try them. Spendy but i have yet to see a pair wear out on me since purchasing late last year. I think I like the coolmax better than the wool/silk blend but time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My secret weopon for 5K's I bought these for sports, they are great for trail running & to wear with bike shoes but I ended up getting a bunch more as my everyday sock, they are so comfortable for the gym working out or watching TV. I'm pretty exclusive with these Thorlos! I think I run faster in these so I call them my secret weapon for speed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sock Very very comfortable and good support. Highly recommend. I wear size 9.5 shoe, bought the medium (for shoe size 8.5-10), and it fit perfectly. You can wear them two or three times before washing because they wick moisture so well - so [$] a pair isn't that bad. Again, great sock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not my favorite maybe I have long monkey toes (though no girlfriend has ever said anything), but the placement of padding doesn't quite work. The padding stops halfway on the balls of my feet, and from the heel comes halfway into the arch. This creates a discomfort when running I can definitely feel, I can feel the uneven padding on the balls of my feet when running. I usually wear these for kicking around the house or weight training, not cardio,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Walking/Running Sock I've ever boug I am training for the breast cancer 3-day 60 mile walk. I walk no less than 6 miles every day. I've tried multiple socks but this is the only sock I've tried that I can wear the long distances and not get blisters. I walked 10 miles yesterday with no blisters. Years ago I did a Half Marathon and got severe blisters on both feet. I'm not doing it this year thanks to these socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thorlo Experia - men's I exchanged a pair of women's socks for the men's because the women's was so small. The men's sock ran very small as well. After washing twice and air drying without the use of a dryer, the sock has shrunk even more. Also, if you have bunions, this is not the sock for you. Very little padding there at all. Certainly not worth the $15

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great socks for trail running! After using many brands of socks for trail running - 10 to 50 km, I found these the most comfortable. Supportive of the ball of your foot and toes, they are light, and tough-wearing. Last two pairs did about 2,000 km each befor thinning out - although I still use them! Relly great socks.
