To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was looking for a cushioned sock when I found the Balega brand. I originally ordered Balega Blister Resist No Show Socks For Men and Women (1 Pair), Legion Blue/Grey, X-Large. I tried them for a few days and really was impressed with the cushioning they provide and their fit, they don't bunch up or slip down over the heel. I wore them with my Hoka shoes.
I then ordered Balega Hidden Comfort No Show Socks for Men and Women, Legion Blue/Teal, Extra Large and Balega Silver Antimicrobial No-Show Compression-Fit Running Socks for Men and Women, Midgrey/Neon Lime, X-Large. They are both 'no show'. Both pair kept slipping down over my heel and bunching up, so I returned them. I don't know why they slip down; I would think that all of the 'no show' socks would be made the same (I wear XL men’s). My advice is that these two socks both run a small.
I then ordered Balega Blister Resist Crew, Orange, X-Large Unisex-adult. I absolutely love them. The fit is perfect and the cushioning is superb! I ordered 3 more pair.
I receive these socks right before my power walk so I put them on and walked three miles. They were so comfortable. I bought these socks because I had some painful blisters forming. I barely felt the blisters. I just bought two more pairs.
