Customer Reviews

Comments: Outstanding sock! No blister on my middle toe for the first time in months. Not only that, my feet didn't feel beat up at the end of my long run. First time in years I did rush to take my shoes and socks off!!!

Comments: I just received my first set of Balega Soft Tread socks yesterday and am beyond impressed. Very snug but non-contricting fit. They have perfect heal and arch support/cushioning and are sleak enough to fit perfect in my new Inov-8 Talon 212's. I can't wait to run with these in all of my upcoming Multi-sport events. By far the best sock I have purchased to date.
