Excuse me, Ginger, may I borrow your coconut bra?

Soft comfy socks.
I use these for cycling. They work perfect.
I have had a pair of the ankle high cocona socks for a couple of years. The material performs really well...used for mtb and trail running. I've yet to wear through a pair through regular use and washing/drying. Super durable. A super solid alternative to merino wool. Bring back the ankle high and people won't have the slippage issue.
My favorite athletic socks
These are by far my favorite pair of athletic socks. I use them for just everyday use, like anytime I'm wearing sneakers. I use them at the gym. I use them when I go running, play tennis, basketball, etc. They fit great, keep my feet cool and dry, they are comfortable, and they don't absorb odor. What more can you ask for in a sock. As far as them sliding down on your foot, I haven't noticed that personally. However, I do wear fairly tight shoes, and I always make sure to pull them high enough so my heel is in the contoured heel pocket of the sock. Get a pair, you won't be disappointed.
I love these socks because they somehow keep my feet dry and stink free even when working or at the gym. Plus it has an awesome goat logo right on it, pretty good conversation starter.
Great socks, no issues
So I bought these despite the warnings about the heel-sliding issues and I haven't regretted that decision all spring and early summer. I do quite a bit of running, trail running, hiking and biking with them, and I haven't had a single instance of them slipping down my heel. I wear a shoe size of 11 so I bought the size L/XL. They last more than a few runs before any signs of smell, and they also wick away moisture better than any other socks I have owned. I will be buying some more soon and will definitely be using these for my next marathon, thanks BC guys and gals, once again you have produced a great product!
i wear and 11 and i like a tighter fitting...
i wear and 11 and i like a tighter fitting sock, in general do these socks fit tight or loose?
the fit tightly. i wear a size 10 usually. i'd go with the large/x-large.
They feel great on, dry super fast and don't stink the next day. What more could I ask for? Was a little concerned reading other reviews about the sliding-down issue since it's happened to me with other socks, but was pleasantly surprised to have gone through all 4 pairs once each without a problem so far. Ladies, if you wear size 7.5 - 8 shoes like me, you'll be fine with the S/M.
A socks a sock but this is a SOCK
Awesoem sock, been through creeks, sand, rockslides, skateboarding, running, hiking, fashionable yet great performance, very comfortable, not too tight not too loose its perferct, i wear them to work, to bed, i honestly never liked a sock so much...... WELL DONE
These socks stay incredibly dry. They are also incredibly comfortable. More comfortable than cotton socks, and that's saying quite a bit.
Downside: they are somewhat pricey and yeah, they tend to slip a little.
Odor protection is great. Fit, feel, and look are all good. They are a little thinner than I would prefer, but they were designed to be a thin running sock. They are expensive but I am really happy with the purchase.
Overall great sock, but a little short on the cut.
Don't get me wrong, I love these socks. I've been slowly replacing all of my cotton socks with Cocona because they're just that awesome.
But these no shows are shorter than I'd like in the back, as you've probably already figured out from the other reviews.
Most of the time they don't slide down but every once in a while they do and it's annoying.
Overall great socks though.
These have a nice feel and don't show, but they kept sliding down my patagonia shoes and I would have to stop and fix them periodically. Finally, I stopped wearing them, since my patagonias were comfortable enough w/o socks.
Trees and streams don't care about socks.
There's nothing wrong with going with the Cocona over the Merino wool socks that this site also offers. However, go with the regular trial socks rather than these no-show. Sure, they look a little better, but when they start to slide down your heel in the middle of the hike, the blisters will not be no-show.
I like da socks.
I really like these socks, they work as they say, and keep my feet dry, especially compared to the my normal cotton socks. They have a feel similar to a dress sock in that they aren't super thick and they seem so grip your foot a lot better than the inside of the shoe
Good sock with some flaws
A great looking sock that's comfortable. I'm used to the merino wool but the cocona is a great alternative. Flaws: I'm in agreement with others, this sock is much more prone to sliding down on your heel than any other sock I've owned. I'm not sure what about the design causes that, but it can be very annoying. I have also seen some premature wearing in some areas, which leads me to believe these socks won't hold up as long as merino does. Overall a good sock though, and worth the price.
Great alternative to merino
I SWEAR by my Backcountry.com merino products, but these socks leave my merino ones in the dresser. The ankle cut is awesome for the gym and so is the odor resistance.
these sock are really warm, product is soft, socks do slide down if not pulled on right, dry super fast
These socks are very soft. I wear a size 13 and bought L/XL and they fit well. They can slide down a little if you don't pull them up all the way. Overall the price was worth it. They seem comparable to smartwool or wigwam socks.
Just recently bought these and they are very soft. Also like the dark color for not showing the dirt. fit great and are very breathable.
Backcountry.com Cocona No-Show Sock
One of my favorite things is getting home from running and smelling my socks. I just like the nasty smell and will quickly offer the scent to anyone within the vicinity of me. I really like how these socks perform but I can no longer enjoy the smell- no thanks to the carbon from coconut shells. The upside is they don't slide around on your foot and bunch up in your shoe and they dry quick. These also feel like a dress sock on your feet or like when you borrow your sisters tights-except nobody gives you any funny looks. These socks are goooooood.
