I feel like I'm not enough of a runner to review this, but here's my 2 cents: My feet were getting very achy running long distances, and a friend suggested socks made for running, so I ordered these. Wore them for a half marathon, and I think they helped, although it's hard to tell because I was in so much pain elsewhere! ;) They do feel like they give me more support.
I love the feel and fit of these socks. I have washed them several times and they have not shrunk. Which is a good thing since finding socks that fit is a big problem. I also like the fact that they don't itch. Overall they were a great buy!
I think I was surprised by how thick these were for running socks. I use these for hiking instead as they make my feet too hot for runs and take up a little more space in my running shoe than I would like.
