The ability of the sock to fit some comfortably and feel so soft shouldn't be looked over. There are many socks both running and traditional that may user thicker fabrics to get the soft-cloud feeling that this Balega Hidden Comfort Socks achieve from its plush-like materials. This is important to take into consideration especially if chaffing is something you're looking to reduce in your socks. Many runners and athletes know the raw feeling you can get from materials and equipment chaffing and this socks ability to fit the way it does so comfortably without chaffing makes it a great purchase for any almost any runner.
A couple of things should be noted however due to the design and size range of these socks. As a result of not using precisely targeted sizes, these socks have a tendency to sometimes not hug your feet as much as some runners may like. This doesn't mean that you'll experience any sudden discomfort or excessive chaffing from them moving inside the shoe, but it does mean that they may not compress and conform to the shape of your feet as much as you might like. As a result of this, some runners have commented that these socks could definitely benefit from focusing on more targeted sizes. The comfort that runners experience is still there and readily available but none the less some runners have expressed an interest in getting a pair of these socks in a more targeted size if at possible. It should also be noticed that while runners didn't experience chaffing from the size range the stretchiness of the sock did allow for the sock to slip down past the heel in some instances. Most everyone does agree though that by tightening their shoes some they alleviated the problem and were still able to enjoy their runs afterward without having to trash the socks and invest in a new pair.
By using stretchy polyester and focusing a size ranges the company has deliberately created a sock that's intended to be used by many different kinds of people and this means being able to have their sock fit comfortably. This stretching to each foot's size is greatly appreciated amongst runners with larger feet and many have said that because of knowing they can get a reliable sock that fits they will switching up their brands simply to be able to get their socks consistently and reliably without having to worry about them being too small.
The socks also use the company's Drynamics moisture wicking system. This feature is designed to pull moisture away from your feet and to the outside of the sock so that the socks dry quicker from sweat and other moisture components that they may come in contact with while on a run. The ability for running socks to do this is invaluable and something that a lot of runners and athletes look for in a sock. No one wants to be in the middle of practice with swamped feet because their socks are pooling sweat. This Drynamics technology helps to reduce the probability of that happening and helps to keep your foot environment dryer so that you can remain as comfortable as possible.
Somethings are lost because of the affordability such as targeted sock sizes and a more secure and snug fit, but most runners have found this easily fixed. Pretty much everyone that has used these socks that for the price and comfort they're worth it and by simply tightening your shoes you shouldn't experience a slipping of the socks. If you're someone who finds themselves going through socks constantly and finding holes in them just because they get used that much then this pair of running socks is going to be a great alternative for you. In a world where everything seems to be getting more and more expensive, it seems reasonable to try and cut costs where you can.
The Drynamic technology this company has implemented also means that your feet will stay relatively dry and won't pool in sweat from using them in hot and arid conditions. This is great for most if not all athletes and helps to deliver a more comfortable and enjoyable experience when training or working out in these socks. The socks themselves accomplish this by whisking away moisture and keeping your foot environment as moisture free as possible. This moisture whisking helps the socks dry faster and stay dry so the water and sweat aren't seeping to the inside of your sock and pooling around your feet. These socks are also rather affordable, something that a lot of athletes and runners may be looking for depending on how quickly they're seeing wear and tear in their other pairs of socks. You won't find yourself feeling as guilty or strapped for cash as you would with other brands. This is fantastic especially as the market continues to see products only get more and more expensive these days.
