Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Socks Of My Life! I was recommended these socks by a guy in the shoe department at my local REI and they are the best socks I've ever owned. They hug my feet in all the right spots but are super breathable. I also love the seamless feel they have - no annoying toe line! My favorite part about these socks is that they have the tab on the back that prevents them from slipping down my ankle. Maybe I'm late to the party, but I've always had issues with socks slipping and giving me major blisters until I discovered running socks. They are AWESOME to hike in and make my shoes feel even better because I'm wearing them. Highly, HIGHLY recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best socks ever! these are the best socks i have ever had. i have had the balega no show running socks for a few years now and had decided, up til now, that they were the best socks i have ever owned. the balega ultra no shows have upped the bar and are in fact now the new reigning socks on my all time list. i have them in gray and in black. my wife also has a couple pair and she feels the same about them. seriously comfortable!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointingly small These are well made socks and feel nice but are much smaller than the size labeled on the package. I bought the size matching my sneaker size and they were too tight causing my toes to "curl" under. My size was the top of the range listed I tried them on before I washed them so it is not because they shrank. While they use the word snug in the product description, it is an understatement in my experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from - Bah Leg Uh - Thought these would become my new favorite running socks. The material is super super soft and comfortable. Unfortunately there is a hole in the right sock after only a few runs. Less than 20 miles in these socks and I don't see them lasting much more, bummer too because the material is quite nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect running sock I was looking for a thin sock for running that also offered a bit of cushion. This sock is snug on the foot, no slippage, hugs the foot well, and protects in all the normal friction spots. Plus the cushiony lip on the achilles is great for skinny ankles like mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight but sturdy Nice quality product. Light weight, but well made and should last for quite awhile. No shrinkage during washing.

Will these be offered again in medium? I have one pair that I (im)patiently wait to get done in the dryer. I would love to purchase more but I can never find mediums offered??? Help my poor feet! 

Asked by: Truman'sMom
As of October 2016, we are out of stock of the Ultra Light No Show Socks in medium and do not know when it will become available again.
