My Chinese equivalent TruSox turned up today and I'm well impressed! Really good quality and well cushioned cheers @LEACHY48 !! Although Wish is dangerous and I've now spent a fortune!!!

Mine have turned up too, via ebay.
Look good, to be frank. No 'heat reactive' grippy bits on the inside of the sock as per Trusox, but the ones on the outside look as if they could do a good job.

The socks I wear used to be white, but they've been washed so many times they've turned a weird grey colour - is that still worthy of a fine?

Might have to try a pair of these Trusox.

Best I've found so far are British Army Desert Socks - snug fit, loads of cushioning and my feet don't sweat as much in them as they usually do.

Never found a better pair, and I've paid for Horizon etc in the past. Can't be beaten on value.

Had these ones as well - for 2 a pair you cant go wrong - couple of pairs and you're sorted!!

1000 mile socks are the only things I'll wear. Well worth the money (around 15) for a seasons wear.

My sports direct ones have lasted a season (probably 30 matches) and I fully expect them to last this season too. I have been Impressed by them.

May have to invest in a new pair for spares, the last ones I bought a couple of years ago were useless so they must be a new design.

Im sure some are fantastic and some terrible, the possible
Lack of rigorous quality control makes their products cheap but of a variable quality perhaps.
