When we run, we want to feel the burn - just not in our feet. We added high-density cushioning to make these socks more comfortable, and used wicking nylon with Mesh inserts to help keep our feet cool and dry. Because nobody likes sauna socks.
fabric + features
thick, strategically placed high-density cushioning is easier than sticking a pillow in your sock
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 :)

I love these socks
These socks work really well for me. What I like about them is that they don't stretch out. They stay fitted to my feet and I can wear them with any shoe or boot in my closet! I hate socks that stretch out and skootch down in your shoe. These do not, so I just ordered 4 more pair.

UGH! I just got these, they are super cute but theres already a hole! Booo! I haven't even taken them off from their first wear and the hole is there. Not worth the money.

Does not keep feet dry AT ALL
I really wanted to love these socks. I hated them. My feet felt wet and icky within the first 10 minutes of my run, and stayed that way. I thought maybe it was just a hot day. Nope. I tried them in different weather. Still wet, sticky feet. So disappointed. Back to my socks from the running store.

I was excited for these socks. Unfortunately, after one wear they look so raggedy. It pills. I washed them immediately after wear, but it does not look clean. I don't wear them anymore because it looks dirty. Disappointed since I only wore them once.

I love these padded socks! they are great for running & everyday. I love the soft padding and cute colors. I gave a bunch out as Christmas gifts to my running friends. I recommend this product.

I was so excited when I first put these socks on my feet. So luxurious feeling! I just knew that I was going to be in heaven. I wear a true size 8, so of course I ordered the 8-10 size. I went to my high impact class and my feet were sliding all around in my shoes to the point I was afraid I was going to break my ankle! So are they too big? I am disappointed, as they are comfy but slippery...I wonder if I were to size down if it would work but too afraid to order any more at 14 a pair :(

Surge color is not as picture
I ordered the micro macro stripe surge and was surprised when the socks I received in the mail were not the same as in the picture. I won't say I hate them but perhaps the picture should be updated

These socks have too much material on the left and right side of the toe box. The excess material and lumpy stitching makes it uncomfortable to wear for workouts. It bunches, rubs and causes blisters during high intensity workouts. I dread wearing these socks, but for $14/pair and not being able to return them, I force myself to wear them at least around the house without shoes.
It's just not possible to foresee this issue at the store without wearing them. So money wasted and the desire to buy another LLL product is diminishing quickly.
I know I could go to the store for the staff to take a look, but last time I tried that for another LLL product it wasn't productive and a poor customer service experience.
