Comments about Salomon XA Pro II Lo Light Socks:
I am petite and often have trouble with socks that are supposedly my size - they always end up bunching up in my shoes or chafing. Not these socks. They fit perfectly! They are so lightweight, too. And warm when I wanted them to be. Cool when I wanted them to be. How is that? I don't know but they work WELL. Treat your feet!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Salomon XA Pro II Lo Light Socks:
I live in the tropics and have had trouble finding socks that would keep my feet dry and withstand the abuse of year-round hot and humid running. These socks from Salomon definitely do the trick. My feet are dry, no soggy sock rub on the friction points of my feet. These have definitely been the best solution I have come across and would highly recommend them to anyone without thinking twice.

These are perfectly designed socks. I wear them for anything and everything. Nothing worse than bad socks when you are exercising and having fun. They fit perfect and are super comfortable. No bunching, no blisters, nothing but comfort. Buy these socks!

I am an experienced runner who has raced at distances up to and including marathons. I have been wearing Salomon running socks for training and races since first trying them in the summer of 2009. They are simply the best socks I have ever tried. They have an excellent fit, are comfortable, durable and perform well in both heat and cold. They are well worth the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Salomon XA Pro II Lo Light Socks:
I wear these socks when appropriate. They offer comfort, support and they breathe rather than hold in the moisture. They are my first choice of sock for any activity.

I have used numerous running socks and nothing compares to these socks. Well designed from wicking to comfort. They also hold up very well after numerous uses. Not bulky like competitor socks. A true running sock!

Comments about Salomon XA Pro II Lo Light Socks:
One of my top 5 favorite things is a new pair of socks. I love the feeling of them wrapped tightly around my feet. The soft fabric against my skin. How comfortable that first wear is. But then I am always disappointed after that first time. They bunch up, they aren't as comfortable, they slide off my ankle. It really drives me crazy.
These socks have continually felt like that first day. They fit PERFECTLY! They don't slide or bunch up. My feet don't sweat or feel irritated after a long day of hiking.
I give them 2 big thumbs up.

Comments about Salomon XA Pro II Lo Light Socks:
Yes!!! I really love this pair of socks. I was given a pair as a gift, and really wondered how it would compare to my Nike, Injinji socks and other brands. These socks are a revelation! They are a perfect fit for my smaller feet, they don't bunch at all. My idea of a perfect sock is the one that I don't notice at all when I run. These are them! I love them so much that I bought two more pairs! I would recommend them to anyone!

All runners were very satisfied. Good cushion, good thickness, particularly the heel and forefoot, moved moisture like a wicking machine and nobody experienced blisters. All runners used the socks for 17 miles (2 legs).  Check the google 20 in 24. Under results, platinum level, Team Name Born to BM. Finished 4th overall.  Each leg was 8.5 miles.

I ran the third and fourth legs for our guy. 59:16 (6:58) and 1:02.05 (7:18)..

By the way, I asked a guy at 180s who runs a lot to try your socks. He said they were incredibly dry since he sweats a lot, he was pleased. Also, he has a sore on his foot and found he had no problem while running.

Rick,
I gave a pair of the XT Wings to a 65 year old, 200 pound man who plays a golf 3 days a week in the early morning, always with heavy dew. He told me that he walks off the course on a sunny day with wet, clammy feet. On a morning after a heavy rain where the course had standing water, he wore our socks and walk off the course with completely  dry feet. He told his wife (since he doesn't' use the Internet) to get on our website and buy 10 pair immediately!

If you want a good running sock this is the right one to pick, doesn't cause blisters, nice smooth feel when running, cool and light and handles moisture wicking very well.

The Nanoglide XT socks we were given for testing are great.  Three people have tested them so far and two of us wore them for a 10 mile run on Sunday when it was about 95 and 100% humidity.  When we took the socks off, our feet were barely wet….this could be a GREAT story for us.

I want to thank you for letting me test the Salomon running socks. As you know I am a long time runner (25+ years) and very particular about what I put on my feet. When I find a product I like, I tend to stick with it - I've been wearing Asics shoes for 6 or 7 years now!

At first I wore the Salomon running socks for a few short runs (about 4 miles) then gradually worked them into my longer weekend runs. This weekend I gave the socks a real workout and they absolutely exceeded my expectations. Saturday my running group did a 9 mile hill run in tough summer conditions - 80 degree heat with 90 per cent humidity. When I finished my running clothes were soaked with sweat, except for the socks. They did a great job of wicking the moisture from my feet. A huge difference from the cotton socks I had been wearing. On Sunday I did an 8 mile slower "recovery run" with 2 friends. The weather was not as humid but the sun was very intense. Again, the socks kept the sweat away. I also noticed my feet were not as tired as they normally get after 2 long runs in a row. That's also important to me as I have struggled with plantar fasciitis in the past.

Thanks again for the socks - I look forward to wearing them when I do my regular early fall half marathon races.

P.S.: some of my running friends have asked about the socks - Jennifer Williams, Jay Ryan and Michelle (Dunn) O'Bannion.

Hey love the XT socks! When I go for long mountain bike rides they are comfortable, dry and are relatively clean compared to the rest of my body and clothing. Since they eliminate heel rub and sore toes I wish I had them when I rode my 24 hour mountain bike races. I'll definitely wear them now.

Thanks for the XT socks you gave me at OR. I have run in them several times and have to say they are the most comfortable socks I have ever run in. My feet seemed to be cooler and the moisture management was awesome. I also wear them to work on occasion and have found them to be very comfortable.

Let me know where they can be purchased.

Thanks again and best regards,

Dennis Wofford



By Chris Parkes

I was very impressed with the XT NanoGlide socks. I recently bought a new pair of golf shoes and they caused blisters on the back of my heel and the shoes continued to create blisters until I started playing golf in NanoGlide socks. Since I have worn the socks I have been able to play golf and also the blisters have since gone away. Very impressed and will continue to use NanoGlide socks for golf and all other activities in the future.

Here is what I’ve collected from my friends that were testing the XT socks.

These socks are awesome!

Ran the Hood to Coast Relay in one pair!

Running 3 times in an 18 hour period, not only did the socks feel dryer when I finished a leg, they were completely dry when I was ready to start the next leg 4 hours later.

Also they fit great!

RS



Thanks for the socks!

The trail runs are awesome in these wicking machines. My shoes are soaking wet and my feet feel dry!   Amazing what a great pair of socks does for a 20 mile trail run

SG



Got to have more of these Glide socks!   Just running in them a few times a week is helping my calloused feet.   There is just no friction when wearing these beauties!

By Michelle O'Banion 

I love the XT socks. They fit great and don’t slide around on my foot causing blisters. They are thicker than I expected and I like that. They also wick away the sweat better than any other sock I’ve worn. Both my feet and the socks were nearly dry after running 10 miles in the heat and humidity.
