Men's No Show Ultimate
Only good for 3-4 washes
So I bought a pair of these thinking I would try them out and if I liked them I would buy a bunch more. When I first got them, they were so comfortable and looked great so I decided to invest in a bunch more.
After about 3-4 washes they started to pill and almost split apart at some parts of the sock. Also, the part that is much more annoying is that dirt sticks to them like crazy and no matter what you do they just always look disgusting.
I'm a huge lulu fan and will keep buying other things, but as far as these went I was very disappointed and I would never buy or recommend them to anyone else.

Even Better Than Before!
I recently picked up the inkwell and slate/soot versions of these socks and they are top of the line! It literally feels like a special occasion each time I put these socks on - which is not something I've ever said about socks (or anything for that matter) before. They are slightly less breathable than the other variations of these socks as I think they are less designed specifically for the gym and moreso to be worn day to day. Overall, I'd highly recommend you pick up a pair.

I have several pairs of the older versions of these socks which are great. My wife picked me up a new pair and they are awful. The material is very cheap, thin and transparent. The socks slide all over the place. They feel like my feet were going to come through them the first (and only) time I wore them. Like many items about which I have read reviews, it really seems they company is cutting corners. The overall quality has diminished, which is certainly shown in my socks. Not worth the $ anymore. Please bring back the old socks.

Really happy with these socks. I only wear them for running and really love them. So far they are washing well with no issues. Have three pairs and counting!

First off, I'm a girl with giant feet so I had to order the mens version of these socks. Not a big deal. I've worn and washed them 4 times total and they look like I've owned them for YEARS. They're blackened and disgusting. They pick up every single piece of dirt or lint. I vacuum our house twice a week, so it's not like I'm wearing them in a dirty environment. I don't mind paying for quality stuff, but these kind of sucked. Under Armour has MUCH better AND cheaper no show socks. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on these :( Oh well at least I only bought one pair.

Really Good Sock
I try to snag these at my local store when they 'made too many' and they are $9. Love these socks - have several colors. Have worn Asics (which are great also) technical socks for years, and these are better. Overall comfort is just better - they seem a bit 'cushier' if that's a word...
Previous reviewers that talk about lint must've never used a poly sock before - this is typical and a way of life for these kinds of socks. Love how light they stay despite sweat, running in rain, etc. I like the Left-Right articulation and think it's about time somebody started doing this - makes for an extra second or two to sort them, but it's worth it (and my wife typically does the laundry!!).
Expensive, but an inexpensive luxury item - kind of like lipstick for women. Besides, feet are pretty important, after all. You're not going to buy 10 pair, but 2 or 3 and your feet will thank you.

Terrible dirt collectors!!
I wear these everyday. And it ruins my day every morning when I put them on and see all the hair and lint stuck to a freshly washed sock.
Socks fit, perform and work OK, but as has been previously mentioned, they pick up and retain tons of hair, lint, dirt. Washing does not help, in fact I think makes it worse.
I also agree that the L/R concept is great in theory but a pain when trying to find/sort socks after the laundry, not to mention the invariably missing on left sock that messes everything up.
I've been looking for a good non-cotton wicking sock since Nike stopped making their Dryfit no-show, and these would be perfect if not for the issues mentioned. I will continue my search.

I went out of my way to review these socks - I have tried several different brands and these are by far the best. They stay put, are soft, and breathe. I really love wearing them and just bought two more pairs!

Fitted, comfy & they stay on
My favorite pair of socks, they do tend to attract all sorts of fluff from the floor when walking without shoes. I find most low socks tend to start pulling under my foot, but with the tab on the back and the angled compression strips these stay put however long i'm wearing them.

Great socks, I usually don't rave about socks :)
This model has a tab on the back heel that gives a bit of extra padding in addition to keeping the sock from sliding down. More fun colors please!!
