10 out of 10
Notes: These socks are so soft! I have NEVER felt socks this smooth and soft to the touch before and I was honestly amazed before even trying them on. They kind of feel cool (temperature) to the touch.

10 out of 10
Notes: Lifting and holding the socks in my hand they felt as light as could be. Upon slipping them onto my feet it felt like I was walking on air. The socks encompass 75% Micro Denier Acrylic, 15% Nylon and 10% spandex. Practically the lightest materials you can put in a sock. The sock doesn’t feel tight or stiff at any particular part. Good weight to balance ratio.
8 out of 10
Notes: I tried on several socks such as Channel Air Shot Score and Head Strong Mustache crew sock among others. All with different, vibrant designs and sizes, but they all felt the same. I slipped each sock on with ease, each pair conforming to my feet before sliding them into various shoes. I was able to move around freely. They are just a tad slippery, but I think that’s to eliminate friction and the risk of blistering.
10 out of 10
Notes: I wore socks over the course of a week in games, running and just chilling on my couch. They can be used for almost any occasion. SockGuy has it down to a formula, a cool comfort formula in fact. The combination of airflow mesh, terry padding, mesh upper and arch support can get you through the most grueling of tasks without falling a step behind. I even conducted a wash test with them. I wore a pair, washed them and wore them the proceeding day. They felt like they came straight out the package. Only time will tell, but I believe these will last you for a long time.
Lasting Impressions
I am now a fan for life! SockGuy performance socks are by far the most versatile socks I have ever worn. Ranging in size, style and durability you just can’t beat SockGuy. I hear they are producing over 30 new lacrosse designs for Fall 2012. Looking forward to it! Visit to purchase yourself a pair or maybe order custom socks for your whole team. Also, follow them on Facebook.
