The socks makes your feet feel good while wearing. However i will not recommend this to marathon runners. By around the 16km mark, the extra tightness and the socks tightness around the heels and plantar area caused heel and pain on the outside bottom of feet near the heel.
I have had persistent issues with my Achilles and I now have four pairs of these socks in various colours. I find that they provide a small amount of support to my ankles, which provides almost as much protection as bandaging. They are not a miracle cure, but do seem to help protect the ankle and I would recommend them to anyone who has any soreness on the ankle after running (or walking) as a preventative measure. The only drawback is that strap is slightly uncomfortable on some pairs and needs adjusting when putting the sock on.
I hav been using for netball, to strap and support ankle movements. It has been great. Just that when the feet sweats, doesn't absorb and makes feet slippery.
It's a thick socks though good one, I have tried upto half marathon distance at a stretch and it does keep feets sweat free and one doesn't feel tired.
This sock is slightly thicker than the typical 'run of the mill' running socks. I find it gives an improved level of comfort, especially around the toes. This makes it ideally suited for long distance events or trail running.
Soft and comfort
Good but I prefer the simpler Kiprun socks. Tried on distances between 5 and 12 miles so far...
Have used these for years with no problems. I run 10k + off trail and have had no problems. So good I use them in fitness classes and via Ferrara too. (Perhaps the chap with blisters just got unlucky)
This socks from kalenji is the best I have used so far. It provided a good cushion to feet and run is very comfortable.
Bought a pair of these socks in black and two in white.
Have run for over 20 years never had a blister.
Wore the black ones for a half marathon today in a pair of trusty marathon trainers.
Blisters on left hand side of right big toe blister on left heel
Blister on right of Left small toe.
The shoes fit me fine. No problems there
The socks were the correct size.
Going back to my old brand Hilly socks. Never had a blister.
Worn now so can not return.
Don't buy these socks
