Blister Resist Socks
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.

Look great but V expensive :-(
Great socks with perfect colour match to the SB range but ridiculously expensive. I popped them in my bag at the till and was shocked at the cost.... Oooops!

Socks your feet will thank you for!
Great socks, lovely fit, stay in place, soft fabric. Pricey but your feet will thank you for paying a bit extra . Ideal for everyday or gym use.

Comfortable but a little big for small feet
They are very comfortable, and they stay put when they are on and don't slide down like some socks. However, as I am only a size 4, there is a bit too much sock above the shoe line. If they were made in S,M&L, they would be perfect.

Great fit and feel. The double layer really works, I've bought many pairs of these socks and I've never had a blister. My only gripe is the cost, very expensive for 1 pair so socks!

These are double-layered so they're a bit thicker than the trainer liners and the Technical Run Sock. They are very comfortable and they don't slip during runs. I think for longer runs I would go for the Technical Run Sock as they provide better cushioning, but for shorter runs these are perfect. I also wore these the first time I wore my new trainers and I was pleased to see I didn't get any blisters after my run.

Wear these marathon runners/walkers!
Bought these just before I did a walking marathon and remained blister-free, unlike my walking companion. Now use whenever I do sport, from gym to runs. V good indeed.

Very comfortable but wore badly
When I first tried these on, they were so comfortable. I was really disappointed to find that after only my third run in them, a large hole had appeared in the toe of the right foot. Sadly, these have ended up in the bin which is a shame for a pair of socks which are pretty expensive.

Nice socks - but I still get blisters!
Nice sock to run in - good fit, lovely colour (dark purple) and nice length which seems to be between a full sock and a trainer liner. Breathable and comfortable and doesn't ride down when running. But I'm still getting blisters so it's obviously not the full solution for me!
