Too much money to justify.

For $16.90 I just can't recommend these. Plenty of companies make an economical sock for running that performs just as well as these if not better. I got a pair as a gift and thought whats the hype. I tried them out and I can't say that it enhanced my experience any. I much prefer my nike drifit running socks which keep my feet dry and blister free. Bottom line, I would spend $16 on a single pair of hikers, but not on a running sock.

There is no better sock on earth than Smartwool! They're well worth the money. I own socks across the board, for biking, hiking, and running, from all, or most, of the major manufacturers including Smartwool, Darn Tough, Injinji, Wigwam, Icebreaker, Sock Guy, Thorlo, Feetures, and Balega. While many of the other brands come close, NOBODY beats the fit, feel, and quality (aka "overall package") of Smartwool...
