Best running sock ever!

    This is 'feet-down' the best running sock I've ever owned. I run an average of seven miles a day, street and trail, and this sock keeps up with everything. Never bunches, never rolls, never twists or slides... They dry super fast, are practically odor-free, even after two or three days without changing them, and I NEVER got a blister wearing these.

    I bought about 10 pairs, crew and minis, in 2009. I am amazed they are still in great shape after all these miles and I would readily buy more if they were back in my size and preferred color.

    great socks!

      Got these mostly for hiking in the summer, but have found them to be great as a casual sock for everyday use in the winter too. My feet always feel cool, comfortable, and dry. The only hitch to these is the right and left sides which makes for a nice fit, but they need to be matched up correctly on laundry day.

      He likes them a lot

        For Christmas my boyfriend wanted socks. His current sock collection consists of cheap socks which are supposed to be white but have turned grey. The elastic is so worn that they slide down into his shoe & under his heel, which he hates. I saw that these had great reviews & since they're lightweight they're great for our sweaty Arizona heat. They fit snug without constriction. He loves the color.(doubt these will turn grey) The only thing that bugs him is that they are such a material that attracts pet hair like no other. Also in case anyone was wondering there are designated 'left' & 'right' socks with corresponding cushioning which may help prevent his bunions from growing any more.

        Backcountry.com SynthTrail Crew Sock saves my feet

          I don't know what it is about all my other socks but they get worn out very quick. I usually go through the heels or foot beds and sometimes the toes super fast but these puppies are nice. Tough as nails but light as a feather. They feel like your sliding your foot into a cloud that forms to your foot and gives you tiny kisses on it all day long.

          The cushion is just perfect in all the right places and the thin layering in other places helps keep your feet from getting too hot. When they do get hot and sweaty though these things suck it right up like a SHAM WOW and it disappears. I have bought many 3 packs to replace all my other semi par socks.

          9 months and still going

            I have been wearing 6 pairs of these socks exclusively for 9 months in SE Alaska. They are comfortable, breath well, and most importantly while living in a rain forest, dry quickly. They have held up well considering I would only use 2 pair per week and was doing trail crew work which required me being on my feet from sun up to sun down and in a world of trench foot my feet were rairly a problem. For the price you won't be disappointed!

            Cool socks

              I use these socks for running and hiking and they're very comfortable and dry. I don't like how every little piece of lint, hair, etc. sticks to them though. Love the goat! And it's kind of cool to have socks designed for right and left feet specifically.

              Cool socks

              Wear them all the time

                I really like these socks. I use them for hiking, cycling, running and pretty much everything I do. There really thin which I like and they wick moisture pretty well. Don't really notice the difference in wearing a sock that is meant to fit specifically on your left or right foot though. Maybe I'm just not gear savvy enough to notice though.

                Decent

                  I purchased these socks for the intent and purpose of using them when I run trails, I have done some of that in them and have found that they are quite comfortable. But I have also just worn them around, to work or hang out, and they bother me unless I am wearing a tighter fitting shoe as they are so thin that they get uncomfortable when they are not supported well by the shoe. Overall a good buy.

                  the joy of socks!

                    I like backcountry socks. They're comfy and look good. I've worn them trail running, road running, and riding my bike and they are comfy. Even worn them casually. Do have to make sure that I get the "L" and the "R" on the correct feet, but I like them!

                    Love me some

                      will there be a 2011 update for these...

                      will there be a 2011 update for these socks? as well as the other bc.com socks?

                      What is the color of the night and sky...

                      What is the color of the night and sky socks??

                      I wear a size 9 - 10 depending on the shoe....

                      I wear a size 9 - 10 depending on the shoe. I decided on purchasing a L/XL, do you think this will be the right fit?

                      If I don't hear from any one I will make sure to put that info in my review. My size is common yet it falls right between the two sizing options which really stinks!

                      Chris C, Maybe this will help as well:

                      A size L/XL measures 6.25" from heel seam to toe seam. (heel seam to top is 7"). This was intended for 9-13 but if you're a 9 or a ten, a medium should work just fine.

                      A S/M measures 6" from heel seam to toe seam. (heel seam to top is 5.25"). This was intended for sizes 5-9.
