Run For Ice Cream Sock
Got 2 pairs of these on sale, they're cute, light, comfy.....but not my fave for running. I like that they're thin for wearing with my Chucks but that's about it.

so pricey, so thin
So I thought these would be just thinner socks that would be appropriate for running, but also for things like cycling (I have tri shoes that are sized to be worn barefoot, but so I'm always on the lookout for thin socks for when I'm training). Bought two pairs on markdown at my local store.
So: the black pair had these striations in them that were completely sheer. The commentators who talk about their socks falling apart ? I can totally see this happening with the black socks.
I also got a fresh teal pair with "sprinkles" of black dots. These are without the sheer striations and seem a much better pair of socks, far more durable, far more practical.
I had no idea when I was purchasing them (since they're plastic-stapled into the wrappers) that the two pairs would be so different.
Then I did laundry and fished out a pair of asics running socks that are awesome, very similar to LLL's default running socks, which were purchased for less than $14, and realized even $9 for these socks is a helluva lot of money.
Oh and the educator in the store when I bought these, when I asked about the product construction and such, had the audacity to read me off the label in a "oh-you're-so-stupid" voice. Seriously? I ask for some basic product information because the socks are impossible to assess in their packaging and you read me the label as if I'm an idiot. Please.

no slippage socks!!
Purchased these in strawberry sundae bleached coral. If you are looking for socks with a ton of padding these are not for you. What they do have is a light fit, cute cuff although they are not a "no show", they do have a slight ruffle. And they do not slip during my workouts, which vary from 5 mile runs to 1 hour zumba classes. I have worn them about 6-8 times now and not a hole in sight yet.

I absolutely love all my lulu lemon products! Until I got these socks. I love the design, they're adorable. I'm a big dancer and go to class in my socks all the time. No socks(especially ones that are $14!) have ever gotten holes after not one, but even several times of wear to the dance studio. I was so excited to wear these and when I got to dance I got many complements on the socks. But after warmups I feel a hole in the bottom under the ball of my foot. I'm very upset and won't be getting any more lulu lemon socks unless lulu lemon redeems themselves with me!

Cute, comfy socks, but lucky to last a day
I have had these socks on less than an hour and I am already seeing a hole start to form on each sock under the ball of my foot. Not worth the money and certainly not the quality I would expect from Lululemon!
