Safe from blisters
I'm a larger than average active woman and I enjoy walking and hiking and other outdoor activities. The only think that stopped me from going the distance that I wanted to achieve was blisters, until I got these sock liners. I've used them about a half dozen times while walking briskly for exercise, hiking - training for 3k's and mountain biking. My feet stayed cooler than normal, no hot spots and even though my shoe moved around a bit, no blisters! I feel confident with these liners coupled either with wool socks or synthetic multi-sport socks, that I can go the distance without the discomfort that I previously had without them. Great product!
so far, great
On me (5'8", 30" inseam) these liners come up to just below the knees. The elastic content almost guarantees that they'll cling to my feet and provide a surface that slides against the outer sock. These socks do that tenfold better than the smartwool liner socks at half the price. I walk a five mile route with hills 2-3 times per week with a 35-39 lb pack. The short term verdict on these socks is 5*.
The jury is still out on durability. More on that later, if I remember.
Stretchy and Smooth
These are my favorite liner socks. I wear them all year, except when it's really hot. They keep my feet comfortable and drier in the winter and cooler in the warmer months. They make nice night socks in the winter, too. Since they can be stretched to your knees, they'll fit under any height sock and they retain their shape very well after months of daily use. They also seem very durable and the toe seam is imperceptible.
Terrific Recycled Product
This product enables me to put ointments on my aging drying feet and go to sleep without worrying about messing up my bedsheets.
I live in the Western Desert area where the air is dry and requires me to moisturize parts of my body.
I use this product also as a barrier to mosturize my feet and wear an outer sock when walking or hiking.
Fit well, keep away moisture
I've worn these sock liners under other socks, and they keep the moisture down better than any kind of sock I've tried (wool, wool blend, etc.). They look small, but stretch when you put them on. Even when I wash them, they come out of the washer pretty much dry. So there's no reason to put them in the dryer- if you do they'll probably shrink.
Good Sock for my use.
I walk all day and use these with my regular work socks as a wicking liner. I have had no problems with them and as far as I am concerned these liners are great for what I use them for.
Ideally thin but well woven as liner socks for a dry suit. These tube socks will insulate my feet when in the suit booties and still be thin enough to fit into outer boots. Just Right!
I swear by these
I always wear these, especially on longer hikes. From 10-20 miles with full packs, I've never gotten a blister with these worn under regular hiking socks. Seem to wear pretty well too.
Bought these based on price. They seemed at first to be thicker than other liners I have which concerned me but these worked fine. Comfortable. Ample length.
Exactly what wicking liners are supposed to be: inexpensive, lightweight, and wicking. Pair 'em with some nice wool socks and you can't go wrong.
