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.

I wish these fit!
I'm a size 6 shoe, and these socks were too big on me :( They look like they have great padding and are super soft, so I will be gifting to a girlfriend of mine with slighter larger feet.

comfy and wearing very well for me
Saw some other reviews about these socks not wearing well, but I have 4 pair now and they are lasting forever! I run quite a bit, long distances, and I've even done 2 rounds of Insanity just in these sox, with no shoes. No signs of wear at all. They feel so great with running shoes too...really put a spring in my step! I'll keep buying!

not working well for me
I wear size 7 or 7.5 for athletic shoes and my feet is extra wide. I tried this pair of socks with size range 5-7, they are too short and too narrow for my feet, especially too tight on my toes that I can feel the blood is not circulating well to my toes especially my pinky toe. Then I got another pair (I think the color is called split pea) in size range 8-10, the width is much better and the length is still okay. So I got one more pair in red and white color for size range 8-10, then this pair turned out to be longer than the split pea one.
It would be nice if the size ranges are 3 different ranges instead of 2 different ranges.
Besides, I feel that I am having sauna in these socks, very hot and doesn't wick moisture well. I feel that I can only wear these without having any shoes on, as when I have the shoes on, my feet are very wet, hot, and uncomfortable. The humidity trapped inside made my feet itch.

Comfy but keep an eye out on the color
Great socks very comfy but the Deep Coal color is black in real. It should be of a herringbone black/grey but when received, these socks were identicial to my black pair! (DCO color on the left, black on the right of photo). Kept them cause I love them so much I don't mind having two pairs of plaid black!

So from the pics on the lulu website it looks like these are pretty low cut socks but they are not. I'm disappointed in that because they actually come up above the ankle for me and look pretty goofy with crops or shorts like others have said. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. Other than that they are very comfy but I agree with others that they are also very warm. I only wore them to crossfit so far and have not run in them but found my feet to be heating up. It wasn't unbearable but just something to keep in mind if you buy them. I won't be buying more of these unless they change them to be no show. Bought them in store for $9.

Wore once and the threads came apart, created a hole in the sock on bottom on sole of foot. Very disappointed.

best running socks ever!
These are quite possibly the best running socks I have ever tried. They hold up well over long distance runs (10+ miles). The padding is in all the right places, but they still are thin enough in other areas to keep your feet cool. I love that I can finish a long, sweaty run and my socks are nearly completely dry, I have no blisters or chafing, and my feet feet supported the entire way. And thwy never slip. I own about seven pairs of these and hope Lulu sticks with this design. As far as I am concerned, they knocked it put of the ballpark.

Depending on the material in which this sock is made. I found if you have pets this material will collect hair like no other sock i have ever had. I wore these running and they kept falling down. A bit disappointed for the price.
