Love these socks

    They feel great on on the feet. They are not too hot.I run in then and also just wear on a daily basis with any shoe. They are a great support too. There is one downfall, though it isn't a bad one,the left and right foot that are indicated on the sock themselves, so you feel like you are doing your foot a disservice if you put them on the wrong foot. But really they are a great sock!

    Backcountry.com SynthTrail No-Show Sock

      As like other Backcountry.com's socks these are very comfortable. I wear La Sportiva Nago climbing shoes and in the cooler weather I like to wear socks with them. They are snug enough to fit comfortably in my nagos keeping my feet somewhat warm at least better than not wearing any socks. The durability of the socks seems improved as well. As I have always liked the comfort of Backcountry.com's socks it is their sewing or construction that I have had problems with in the past. It seems that these socks don't have that problem.

      sweet little slice of foot heaven

        Some of the best socks I've owned. They're wonderful at shielding the blister "hot spots" -- even after the fact when having to wear an inferior sock whilst all of your SynthTrail No-Show socks are in the wash (poor planning on my part) -- Wonderful as a "liner" for a pair of cleats on the pitch, or a nice little trail run in my Montrails. As a person who misplaces socks constantly, I've wound up with both right socks in my gear bag. Hint: turn one inside out, you now have a left sock....

        Good for the price, comfortable

          Great deal for the price. Unlike others, I like the left and right because tailoring to each foot helps reduce excess material wrinkling up under your shoes. Yes they do seem to pick up more dog hair than others, and I wish they were Merino Wool, but for the price a great deal. Cannot comment on durability yet, and I might change my mind when I lose all of the lefts and have only rights but for now Harumph Harumph!!!

          Good thin socks

            These are nice lightweight socks, with a little bit of cushion. The roll at the top makes them stick out of the shoe more, but also keeps them from sliding down, so it's a tradeoff. I do wish they came in just plain white or grey, but they're good socks, and for a decent price.

            Decent for the job

              Eh, they're sock. I could have done without the added cushion at the top, but it doesn't bother me too much. It's just a little more "show" than what I think a "no show" sock should have. Also, one of the started to rip as I was pulling it on one morning. I suppose they could get away with increasing the price more since it taught me a life lesson about not rushing and treating things of value better. I do really like these socks, and the fact that they have a big "L" and "R" printed on them help me to remember which foot each sock goes on.

              The perfect athletic sock.

                These socks are great. I've placed a couple of orders for them and continue to enjoy them for running and biking. They are very ergonomic to the foot, have good padding and breathe nicely. Just don't pull them on too hard as the heel can rip, but that only happened to me once while I was rushing. In short, I've pretty much committed myself to only buying these socks from here on out.

                Serious Fit

                  If you don't care how socks fit your feet you should continue looking for some crappy socks. If you enjoy socks that hug your feet and have the padding in all the right places then you have found your socks. Just go ahead and put them in your cart and enjoy.

                    Soft and padded

                      I really enjoy the extra cushion up in the ball of the foot on these socks. The extra padding at the top keeps your foot from rubbing against the shoe even though they are no-show socks, it also keeps the sock from sliding down. The fit is good in all the right spots.

                      decent socks

                        These are some great synth socks, but I'm still sold on merino socks. These fit very well and are very comfy on long hikes/runs, but I would still prefer the feel of merino.
                        Another plus is the roll on the cuff, it really keeps the sock from slipping down.

                        Rockin' Socks

                          Great socks, happy feet! The Backcountry brand socks have an amazing wicking ability, are low profile, and the little roll at the top keeps the socks from sliding down into my shoes. Even after a long, hard run, my feet feel dry and blister free.

                          Comfortable

                            I really like the feel of these socks. feet never get clamy and they are very comfortable. Don't ride down your foot when doing something active. I wear them to bike in and for everyday use. The only thing I don't like is that the socks are right and left foot specific. Cool idea, but kind of annoying.
