2nds. Icebreaker broke the mold when they made the Run Ultralite mini socks, made with temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking merino wool and an anatomically designed fit for your left and right feet.

These are my new favorite workout socks. I like that the height because they don't slip down on the heels, a problem I have with the tiny ankle shocks. They have just enough compression to feel firm but not constricting. I've noted many wear these for winter running and they are terrific. I am a wimp and use the treadmill in the winter and I think these are great even in a warmer environment. Very light cushioning, just the right amount to bit of stress from a foot strike but not so much that they feel big in your running shoes. Big, big fan.
p.s. I'm a size 9 women's, and I decided to take a risk on the size Large even though it's listed for 9 1/2 - 11. The fit great even though my shoe size if half a size smaller.

I've started running in minimal shoes and prefer a thin sock with them. These socks provide just the right amount of fit and protection without feeling bulky or hot. The crew top is a little longer than I'd like, but that's a minor quibble. Great socks.

I always have cold feet, so I'm on a constant quest to find the perfect sock. My favorites are Polartec fleece, but they're TOO warm for those occasions when I want to do cardio indoors. These socks are a great compromise whenever I need to go from walking around in the winter to sweating through a high-intensity workout at the gym.

Love the length & the weight of these. To a previous reviewer complaining that they are too thin & suggesting a thickness scale from STP - exactly what did you think "Ultralite" meant? It's why I bought them.
