No Show Ultimate Run Sock
Great socks for long distance
I've run 27 marathons. I've always had problems with blisters on two of my toes. I mean big bloody blisters that hurt around mile 18. I just completed two long training runs (today it was 20 miles) and NOT one single blister or even a hint of one. I absolutely love these socks. There is padding in all the right places. I like the idea of L and R socks. The fit is great for me. No problems whatsoever. If you run long distances, give these socks a try. I will be wearing mine in the upcoming Tucson marathon. I have happy toes!!! Thank you Lululemon.

These started to pill very badly after the second wash. The fit was excellent, but they piled so badly they stick to themselves. When I mentioned the problem in the store, I was told since they were 'undergarments', that nothing could be done.

Poor design quality
I bought a pair of the Men's No Show Ultimate Run Sock on July 29, 2013, and after only three uses, they are starting to pill, even though I have followed the washing directions. I have bought other running socks from Lululemon that have held up well, so I am sad that these have not. I expected these $14 socks to last a while.

i forgot why i never wear these socks...until this weekend thanks to being a few days behind on laundry. i wasn't more than 10 steps into my morning run before the back of the sock had slipped under my heel and was bunched up under my foot. i have 2 pairs and have had the same experience with both - it is not simply a quality issue with one pair. i stopped by the local lululemon store yesterday and noticed that the design looks unchanged. these socks will never wear out - because i will never wear them again.

Used to be my husband's favourite running sock
My husband used to love these socks for running, but I purchased a pair for him recently (because his old ones were stained and stinky) and he wore them twice before the toe ripped. At $14, that's $8 a wear these things cost. I feel like a broken record on this website, but this is yet another quality issue at Lulu. I really hope the company restructures to restore the brand to its original awesomeness.

Great fit but poor quality
These are perhaps the best fitting socks i've ever owned. They look cool too. Unfortunately they pill after 1-2 washes (even when washed with delicates using only a small amount of detergent). :(

I am sorry for this bad but honest review but people must know on this issue.
This is the worst sock i have ever used.
not even to walk is worth it. I run a lot and its impossible to do so with this sock as it slides all the way down and is not adjusted to the fit.
Very uncomfortable product. I would not recommend for any runner to get this product.

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.
