The only thing more uncomfortable than when our socks slip down into our shoes is when we mistakenly end a phone call to a co-worker with "Bye, I love you" through force of habit. We made these socks with a knitted 'Y' rib heel to stop the socks from slipping. We can't 'Y' rib against slips of the tongue.
they're ergonomically designed because you don't have two left feet
pads on your toes and under your shoelaces add comfort and protection against blisters
high density cushioning in strategic spots eases the blows
the knit 'Y' rib heel prevents your socks from slipping
daily treadmill, retired from cheerleading
I love these socks! I initially bought them to wear in my cheerleading sneakers, with the no-show and extra cushioning I thought they were perfect. After a few months of practicing and competing with the socks on I noticed how many times I'd have to re-tie my sneakers because of the feeling like my feet are "sliding around in my shoe" (the lining of my cheer shoe and the nylon of the sock just didn't mix well)
Naturally I was disappointed that I had to retire my lulu socks from the cheerleading world, however they do still get a daily workout on the treadmill.

So i was playing soccer with these socks on and nothing else and it was on turf. When i was done my socks were "pulling" and looked like spread out cotton candy...

I have two pairs of these socks, and I find them very comfortable to work out in! I have not had any issues with holes or slipping into my shoes. The padding is a perfect amount and in all of the right areas. I wear a size 8.5/9 in womens, and purchased the M/L in these socks. On a side note, these socks are treated like all of my other LLL clothes: washed on delicate in cold, no fabric softener, and lined/air dried.

Wanted to love :(, but got a hole!!!
I have there pairs of these, but the last pair seemed kind off off. The size was way bigger than usual, and after one wear' and one wash, thee is a hole in the sock ( in that thinner, mesh area of the sock). Very disappointed. $14 down the drain :(

blister free bliss
Yes, these socks are incredibly expensive, but so worth the price (and way less then it would cost for a new foot). My trainer told me to up my cardio and as a result I've been getting the most awful blisters all over my feet. I wore these for an intense cardio dance class and was finally able to remove my shoes without pain and without getting a new blister. I went back and bought several more pairs.

Won't stay put
I got this thinking it would be awesome for my running. However, after the first two washes, they won't stay put at all. I have to stop and adjust my socks while running on the treadmill or outside every few seconds. It was a pain in the butt. A month later, I can't even wear them coz they would keep slipping while I am walking. I am a huge fan of LuLu Lemon and have own many items. I am not sure if I have a faulty pair but I have never had socks that cost so much and does nothing. What a pity!

I can run!
I haven't ever been able to run due to blisters on my heels. I am yet to get a blister when wearing these socks. I have worn them in both running and hiking shoes but still no blisters.

I loved these socks when I first got them, (even though they were not the socks that I ordered in the picture online)... But then I noticed a hole after my 3rd time wearing them. I don't think any socks I've ever bought have ever gotten a hole that quickly, let alone a pair of lululemon socks that were $14. These socks are so comfortable, but I wish they lasted longer... I can no longer wear these.

The perfect sock!
These fit great, don't slip, and have just the right amount of padding. Love them. Seriously... I love them. I just wish they weren't so dang expensive!

These are great but run big & leave feet hot
These are great socks. My shoe size is 6.5 & I took a size s/m in these. For some reason, Nike shoes hurt the side of my foot (arch) when I run. I recently bought a pair of Nike Zoom Vomero's after my Free's started to hurt the side of my foot and they too hurt my foot so I decided to fork over $14 for these padded run socks. My feet no longer hurt when wearing either pair which is great but I have to deduct 1 star because $14 is a bit much for 1 pair of socks and they make my feel really hot which is a little uncomfortable when running. They also run a little big. But overall they are great and I can keep running in my beloved Nike Free's so I do recommend them and I will be purchasing a few more! Just wish they weren't so expensive!
