  1. Hey Juan,
    These are some awesome socks you have laid out, I don’t really have any varieties in my socks but everyone in my house has socks for different occasion and it made me super curious.

    Just a bit curious though, why are most sport socks very short? Because my formal socks which I use to go to work are long, should sport socks be long as well? Like in the case of soccer

    • Riaz,

      I wouldn’t’ say that most sport socks are short, let’s look at soccer,rugby, basketball, softball just to name a few. In most of these sports the length of socks is part of the uniform. In soccer, the length of the sock helps secure the shinguard in place, that is the reason why they all wear long socks. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

  2. Hi there Juan,you have a very detailed post and i like it.I am not sure if they are available in my country but i can say from the way you have explained every thing they are just perfect.if i may ask,apart from the sports socks,do you have some for the ordinary person?I would love to see the people i care for stand out in such quality stuff.This is a good job you are doing,keep it up.

  3. This is the first time that I have heard about anti-bacterial socks. This is just excellent. There was a time when I wrestled a lot and the mat always gave me burns on my feet.

    I always had to disinfect the wound first before putting on any sock. This silver anti-bacterial sock will come in very handy to help with the infections.

  4. Lots of really good ideas there for the athletes I know. The antibacterial ones look really interesting – anti-blister? Yes please!

    I have a question though – why are “running” socks usually so low-cut compared with socks for other sports? I automatically buy low-cut socks for wearing at the gym but have no idea why!

    • Janet,

      People tend to wear low-cut socks or no-show sock to the gym or other places because they might find them more comfortable or they find them stylish.

      I actually prefer crew socks for running since I found them more comfortable.

  5. I have been a lifelong Hanes socks guy. However the last pack I bought were horrible. Typically my socks will last me a year or two before they slowly start to lose their elasticity and begin to fall when wearing or just generally get out of place. This pack though came out like that right off the bat… I was sooooo disappointed.

    Do you know how many of the Silver Athletic crew socks come with the price of the $14.99?

    • James,

      I have heard wonderful things about Hans socks. Keep in mind, and I will tell you this because I have experienced it myself, sometimes with footwear or socks, there might be one particular batch of socks or a particular shoe that is defective and it is that particular product, it does not mean the brand is bad. You know this from personal experience since you have been wearing Hans socks for a while now and you have had only one bad experience.

      For the silver athletic socks that are priced at $14.99 there is only one pair of socks. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Thank you for these reviews… I certainly enjoyed reading.

    Out of all of the awesome socks you’ve mentioned here, I really like the Drymax Cold Weather Run Crew Socks because they look like something I would buy for keeping my feet warm through winter!

    I like the fact that they are running socks too.
    Thank you so much again.
