Women's Ultimate No Show Run Sock *Silver
comfy, and not stinky!
So, I picked up 2 pair of these at my local lulu store with the intent on trying out some lulu socks for running again. I hadn't had much success with the run for ice cream socks about 2 years ago since they were so thin, but my friend swears by the ultimate run socks. I saw these and liked the patterns, so I grabbed one of each. It wasn't until I got home that I realized that I had accidentally picked up a pair that was the S/M when I wear a size 9.5-10, but I put them on with my vans and they're the perfect "no show" sock.....AND my shoes don't smell! I wore the M/L with my nikes to work and they were comfy, but I don't think I will be running in them because they're still a little too thin for my liking. However, as a casual summer sock, I'm in love, even with the smaller size on accident.

I love these socks I've got 2 pairs now- they fit perfectly and the cushioning is wonderful.
The X-STATIC helps a lot!!!
The seam by the toes was a little annoying at first, but once I started running I couldn't even notice it.
I've done up to 11 miles with these and they didn't fall down or slide around at all.
The only negative I have about these socks is that they attract and hold onto just about anything you step on - ie. any loose hair, animal hair and dirt which gets really obnoxious - so I don't ever wear them around the house.

Won't buy again
These socks were very deceiving. Around the house and for day to day living they felt good. Fit snug and like the padding in the heel. Wore them for a 7 mile run and by the end I could hardly walk on my foot they hurt so bad. They are too slick so my foot was sliding in my shoe and cause the bottom of my feet to blister. Glad I tried to them this weekend as I bought them for my half next weekend and would have been miserable

These socks are great. I've just purchased my second pair, and love them. The first I got were a medium to dark blue colour... Very soft, I even wear them around the house frequently (and I HATE wearing socks, especially around the house.) They fit quite snugly, which is what I like. I wear a size 8 shoe, and the S/M is perfect. If you were a half size bigger though, had unusually large feet, or just like a looser fit sock, I would recommend the size up. I also have two pairs of these socks in the non-silver, non-padded version, and these are far superior. These stay softer after washing, and just seem to be a slightly better fit. If these came in more colours, I would only buy these. The ergo toes are my favourite feature, and pretty much the only reason I would pay $14 or $18 for a single pair of socks, as the toe seams on normal socks cause me great discomfort (I have physical hyper-sensitivity.) As to the other reviews saying these slip down, they do slightly when not in shoes, or in loose footwear (like my DC shoes or Ugg boots), but have encountered no problems in my gym/running shoes, even running for miles on the elliptical and treadmill, or on the sidewalk. I do think the price is still a bit of a stretch for a pair of socks, but they are worth it, so I will continue to purchase and enjoy them!

Wouldn't buy again
HUGE lulu fan, but these socks are not worth a dime. the heels slip and they cause blisters. could be the material. can only run about 2 miles without foot pain when wearing these socks. had much higher expectation especially since they are $18 a pair.

Love these socks. I have several pair of these and the run sock and like the silver run sock better!!

I keep losing the socks....
I am a gret Lulu fan and so far I have loved all products - also the previous socks that I bought.
Actually I was thinking of just going ahead and buying 10 pairs to be "stocked" up for running.
The no show has however disappointed me. I am a size 9 so that is what i bought. However, the socks keep slipping of my heel / foot. THat happens both in sneakers and in proper running shoes. Means I can basically not wear the socks :(
2 stars because I do love the color and softness.... these just seem to be not right for my feet

Love the Sock - But not as Pictured
I own a few pairs of these now, and alternate them with the ergo toes for running. I do find them a little warmer (which surprised me), but they are comfortable, don't slip, and function well. For reference, I wear a size 6.5 shoe and ordered the s/m.
What does bother me is the color. I ordered the chevron stripe grey (because I love fun, patterned run socks), and what arrived was a solid grey. I already have a fair of these, and am not a fan of needing to find an hour out of a busy day to make a return for misrepresented item on a website. So - great product, but bad color representation, Lulu!

Never want to wear my other socks again.
Buyer beware: do not try these socks unless you are open to the possibility that you will never want to wear any of your old socks again. These socks are padded, without feeling thick. They are soft and cool. They definitely feel better than any other pair of socks I own. I was reading through the other reviews and noted that someone with a size 8 shoe thought the S/M was too big. I wear a 6.5 shoe and I thought the S/M fit perfectly. This might be just another case of inconsistency when it comes to LLL products (I always buy the same size and the fit seems to be slightly different with each product, even when they are the same model.). 4 stars, not 5 because the socks are pricey! Hope they prove to be worth the price over time!

Comfy and they work!
These are totally comfy and work as advertised! :)
Only negative for me is the price point which is a few dollars above comparable socks.
