Women's Ultimate Padded Run Sock
i've been meaning to buy more of these, but socks are low on my priority list. i'll admit, most of my socks are cheap except for the two pairs of these padded socks. you can really feel a difference during your workout. especially, when i spin or run, the impact just feels less harsh. spin shoes aren't the cushiest, but these help. i have a broken sesamoid bone in my left foot, so the extra cushion is great for me. i think i remember reading reviews commenting about the pilling. what is with the pilling drama on product reviews? i get that it's annoying, but it doesn't compromise the functionality products, especially, socks. anyway, try them!

I'm in sock love!
I grabbed a pair of these at the Princeton NJ store on sale over the weekend - impulse register buy:) I am in sock love! Although I have excellent running shoes, my outer foot can get a little beat up. These socks provide such amazing cushioning! Love!!!

Best Running Socks Ever!
Socks make all the difference when running. These are the best socks I have found. They are pricey but worth every cent! I love the colour selections!

These socks are perfect for running as well as work! I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts on my feet and these socks rock!

Amazing Socks (as usual)
I am a sock enthusiast (aka I hate wearing bare feet for the most part) and I am in love with these socks. They are very soft and cushion-y, definitely the thickest Lulu socks I have owned. I love the colour options. I do not regret buying these socks.

When I first buy a new pair of these socks, I LOVE them. They fit, they feel great, they perform. After a few wears and washes, however, they pill like crazy, looking worn and shabby. I wish there was a way to engineer them by keeping the good qualities and improving to longevity of the socks.

Only one glitch
I needed new socks and gave these a shot. Socks in my "size" always seem to be too big for me (even wearing a 7 1/2 shoe). These are perfect. I bought several pairs in the last two months. One has already started to unravel on the sole. Hopefully the others won't.

Glad the fit has improved. Size 6 in shoes. The previous pair I purchased over christmas was way too big (size s/m as well) which was disappointing. But these fit nice an snug, no extra material bunching everywhere. Lets hope they don't pill like lulus sock always did back in the day. Hence why I stopped buying them. Love the colour and the sparkly threading!!!!

I love these socks. They are super comfortable and never slip down into my sneakers. The color selection is great. I wear a small when I dance in them because I like for them to hug the shape of my foot more. I wear a large when I wear them running or to the gym. I wear a size 8 shoe. The only problem is that they do get really nasty pretty easily. Pilling is an issue and don't expect to dance in them and have them remain the same color.

Improved sizing - hope it stays consistent!
My feet are small, a size 6. I first purchased these in August 2013 in a small (in store, without seeing the reviews) and they were too big! Same with the no-show socks. Others have posted reviews saying the same thing, so I know it isn't just me. I've been wearing them anyway because I really like them, but I always have to adjust them carefully when I put them on before a run. If I took the time to review the socks back then I would've given it 3 stars max.
Tempted by a new color combo (deauville stripe ambient grey), I decided to buy another pair... SO happy I did. These fit my size 6 feet perfectly! Now that the sizing is right, I feel no hesitation to buy more pairs! They're so cute and I really like the padding. I just hope the sizing doesn't vary by color.
Oh, and... I noticed some reviews that say the sock looks really ratty in a short time. The outside of my old sock has held up well enough, but the inside *is* pretty ratty with lots of threads hanging loose, etc. I hope my new pair holds up better...
Overall, I'd say they're my new favorite :)
