Blister Resist Socks
A runner's essential
I have several different brands and styles of running socks and these are by far my favourite. They're really comfy and warm enough to wear in winter but he's breathable for summer running. They last for ages even if worn three or four times a week. They provide excellent protection against blisters. They are a must have for anyone who does running. They are worth every penny. I love them so much I have several pairs.

When I opened my present on Christmas morning, I was more than pleased I had received 2 pair of Sweaty Betty socks. Since receiving the socks, I have worn and washed them once, unfortunately the socks have bobbled around the heel and lost colour on the ribbing around the ankle and toe seam, even after washing the socks inside out. I consider socks at Â£12 a pair to be a luxury/high quality item and they were very comfortable to wear, it is really unfortunate they look like I have had them for months not days.

Red glo blister sock
Bought 2 pairs to match red glo top, but they are completely different colours
Was able to only return as had opened one pair before checking they matched top,
Otherwise good socks

They Do what they say!!!!
Bought these after I bought new trainers as they were running. These socks saved my half marathon training!
I did all my training in them & wore them for the great north run. Sadly they got a hole in & had to go & get a second pair! The first pair did a good 300+ miles though & the second pair are still going strong!!!

Stopped my blisters
I returned to these socks after constantly getting blisters with other socks. Fantastic. Blister free and they are so comfortable. Great to have a bright colour too.

These are the best running socks I've ever tried. No rubbing & no blisters. They don't slip & good heal grip. Bought 2 pairs now & use them all the time. Washing regularly doesn't reduce their effectiveness. Thank you Sweaty Betty. Another great product.

These socks actually prevent blisters!!!
I am incredibly prone to getting blisters on my heels and always end up having to wear blister plasters for days after a run. These socks are a little pricey, but I thought it was worth giving them a try - it was definitely worth it!! They are really comfy and supportive, I did a 6 mile run without even a red mark :) going to get some more soon!!

Poor quality socks.
I have tried every pair of SB socks and I am sorry to say they don't match the quality of everything else SB has to offer.
I find the socks don't last very long, often developing holes after a few wears. Also fabric not that long lasting.

Nice design but barely breathable!
I purchased these as they were sports socks and wanted something that was sweat proof - I'm still getting sweaty and smelly feet with these, hence the poor rating. Breathable panels advertised are not so breathable.

Nice socks but don't prevent blisters!
This sock comes in only one size, which was a bit big for me meaning that the excess material at the toes actually caused blisters. I bought these socks because I regularly get blisters on the inside of my foot arches but the socks did not stop that. They seemed to work ok the first time for a 10k run but after washing them I got blisters again next time I did a 5K. I thought that the two layers may have stuck together in the machine so the next time I washed them I made sure to properly pull the two layers apart before putting them on, but I still got blisters, even on a short run. In my experience, two pairs of socks works better, along with Compeed plasters and sterile sticking tape!
They are very good quality though, the material is nice and soft and the grippers are a nice touch. They also have a slightly longer 'tab' at the back, which means that although you get the 'invisible' look in your trainers, they don't slip down behind your trainer and rub at the back.
Overall, a good quality sock but expensive considering they don't prevent blisters.
