Best socks ever.

So generally I'm a fan of the generic no-show running socks from Finish Line a) cause they're dirt cheap for actual running socks and b) if you wear through them within a year and are smart enough to remember to keep your receipt where you can find it, you can trade them in for a fresh new pair. That said, I got a few pair of Balega socks in the Christmas stocking and finally busted them out this morning and they're f-ing awesome. Thin, cushy, dry, don't bunch or slip down in the shoe. Downside is they're like $9/pair instead of $12/4 pair. Anyway, just thought I'd throw a little gear discussion out there and see what people thought.

They are awes. However, if you run trails a lot, get the vers without the lip thing on the back of the ankle part because that catches a ton of dirt and stuff when you're off road which is a little bit of a nuisance.

Another expensive but great pair are Feetures. They have these hippie Bamboo and Wool socks that are pretty comfy.
