Comments: I bought/wore these for a 50k trail race in the Blue Ridge Mtns. They kept the debris out until the rubber band piece broke around mile 20. The other one also broke, but I didn't notice it until after the race. I wore these with road shoes so the rubber pieces were tight. Recommend getting extra bands and/or larger bands (eg. med bands for sm gaiters). (Editors note: Running Warehouse now has a limited supply of extra replacement bands for these socks. Please call or email us with any questions you may have.)

Comments: Comments:I have used these and one other pair of inov8 gators and I absalutly love them. I live way south in the hot rocky desert so any thing this light and airy is great!
Now the bad news. As I said I have two pair. Not because I want them but because you will not be able to find the replacement bands for when you brake the ones that are on there ( and you will brake them.)
I have even contacted Inov8 and they sent me two sights that no longer have them in stock.
I have alterd mine to work with just velcro so it is much beter. Still love them. (Editors note: Running Warehouse now has a limited supply of extra replacement bands for these socks. Please call or email us with any questions you may have.)
