Women's Ultimate No Show Run Sock *Ergo Toes
I'm constantly on the quest for the perfect running socks. I run about 60 miles a week in minimalist sneakers so socks are kind of important to me. I got a few pairs of these and the regular ones without the silverescent for Christmas from my boyfriend. My typical complaints about socks are that they're too thick, too thin, they slouch around the ankle, come up too high (I'm sorry I still like to look cute running, guilty as charged....) or don't come up high enough around the ankle and I get a nice blister.
These socks are actually perfect, I can't tell you how many different styles and brands I've tried. I must admit I'm still a fan of the swiftwick no show socks I have, but these might be giving them a run for their money. They have just the right amount of cushioning in just the right spots for me to wear with my minimalist shoes. The Y heel really does keep it from slipping no matter the distance you're running but they still don't come up too high. They also offer them in a variety of colors so you can match it to your shoes for an even sleeker look... The swiftwicks do not have the ergo specific right and left which I'm starting to think is why I like my lulu socks more. It is a lot to pay for a pair of socks that no one will see, but so far I think they're worth it. I've only had one pair washed and I didn't have any of the issues other customers complain about. I think one of the big things with lulu products is you actually have to read and follow the washing instructions. They put so much thought into deciding the fabrics they use, I guess they also in turn require a bit more attention when washing. For the most part if I take care and wash and especially dry my stuff properly it really lasts, I've had pants, tops, and underwear for literally years.

first looks aren't everything
I bought these at one of the lulu outlets, extremely excited. I put them on once I was home only to discover that fuzz sticks to them in balls that are impossible to remove. I popped them into the wash only to discover a small hole on one of the heels. Very disappointed with this product.

Cute but not best socks ever
I've been wanting to try these socks for a while now but held out for the right color/pattern. I only got these because I loved the purple and pink striped design. Compared to other running socks I own in this price range (wrightsock, throlos, smartwool) they are not the best in terms of sweat wicking and blister prevention. However, they are definitely the prettiest of all the running socks I own.

Comfortable & fit great
First, finding a pair of ACTUAL no show socks (that aren't half socks) is nearly impossible. But these are perfect! The ergo toe is also amazing. Nothing better than NOT having a wad of fabric bunched up inside your shoe!
I wear a size 8.5 in shoes, and can wear a S/M and M/L

good socks, bad fit
Was very excited to receive my first pairs of no show socks in the mail! i own the padded socks and have loved those for years and thought it was time to get these as well.
i wear a size 9 and ordered accordingly, also based on all my other lulu socks.
well the part that is supposed to cover my heel is at my ankle. they are definitely not show show socks now. totally defeating the purpose. bought two pairs so kinda upset since i cant return.

Love them but sizes aren't consistant
I have small feet so I often have issues with my socks bunching up in my shoes (I end up having to buy kids socks). I loved that these came in smaller sizes and the fact that the toes are ergo. Less fabric to bunch up.
My first pair fit great! I bought another pair, same size, different colour and they're way too big! I thought they'd be ok after washing, but they aren't :(

So bad news....
I ran a half marathon that went awesome... except I ended up with the BIGGEST BLISTERS ever. The only change was wearing your Ultimate No Show Sock *Ergo Toes. Same shoes that I always train in, no changes in anything but the socks! I purchased the correct size according to the packaging. While I have worn these socks before, I only ever ran short distances in them (5K). Thought they would be fine especially since they are labelled as "run socks". Ended up with four large blisters - One on my heel (size of a toonie) and one on my arch on each foot (3" by 1").
Unfortunately, I will not be wearing these socks again, for short or long runs!

My absolute favorite sock BUT....
I love me some ultimate no show run socks (so much that I think I have 18 pair on my last count). My only and a recurring complaint on these little guys is that the sizing between colors can be quite inconsistent (rationale for deducting a star). I wear a women's size 10 shoe. I ALWAYS buy the M/L size. I have two pairs (one light orange and one mint) that now sit in my husbands sock drawer because they were HUGEEEEEEE. Then I have two pairs (one is my most recent purchase of the lovely 4x4 stripe black) that won't even cover my heel. I double checked the package and yes... they are the M/L. Lulu why do you do this to me?

I'm converting all of my socks over to these! I really like the high back on the heel...eliminates sock slippage so no more need to pull them back up from sinking down into the shoe. The patterns are cute and they dry faster than my other socks while they're off for yoga. I have noticed that the sizing is off for some of the colors. I have had to return a couple pairs that were labeled 5-7 (most notably all the coral socks in the stores look to be this way) but the socks were waaay too long for my feet. Other than that, super happy with these socks.
