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.

Hello all. I am a regualr consumer of Lu Lu Lemon roducts, and this is the first review I have ever gone out of my way to write. I?m not sure that these are the exact pair of socks I ordered (2 pair of), as they are always changing their product. The problem I have encountered is the falling of the heal of the sock. The S/M is only good for feet larger than a size 8 womens. I have a 7- 7.5 size foot and theses socks slip under my heal when I run (or walk!) They are so frustrating! Lu Lu lemon needs to come out with a true to size fitting. Maybe a small, medium and large? My foot is of average size and the smallest they sell are far too large! Of course it happens to be a complete waste of my money as you cannot return socks. Ugh...
