Barely There
This sock is designed to be as unobtrusive as possible. Not only does the no-show design prevent fabric bunching, but the toe seam is an annoying feature in some socks but is nicely blended with the rest of this sock so that it feels completely nonexistent.

Simplicity
Some of the athletic socks on this list are loaded with specialized features from slightly ribbed arches to microfiber and mesh construction. All of that translates to a large investment in what are really just...socks. These aren't fancy, but they provide a solidly made product for a good price.

Thin
For some, tightly fitted socks simply won't do. These are the ideal solution. The low cut and thin fabric of the Ultralite Low Cut socks keep feet from feeling constricted.

Dryness
Along with being lightweight, the socks are also terrific at ventilating body heat. Sweaty feet can ruin a favorite pair of shoes over time in addition to being a truly unpleasant side effect of an active lifestyle. Luckily, the Superlite blend of fabrics cuts down on sweating without sacrificing comfort.

Cost and Value
With 6 pairs to a pack, these are a terrific value. Their versatility makes them a perfect addition to any outfit. Additionally, they're a great part of any warm weather outdoor activity.

In addition to its odor-fighting properties, the Climalite has a specially formulated 'Traxion' footbed which is gently ribbed to provide the absolute most protection against the friction of any sock on this list.
Expand to see more
Material
The blend of microfibers, latex, Polyester, and nylon is quite a complex stew compared to many of the more straightforward socks on the list, but it really pays off in terms of comfort. These socks provide a comfortable fit while holding up beautifully after numerous trips through the washer

Traction
The Climalite Crew sock gives the wearer a leg-up when it comes to reducing friction. While the feel remains padded and comfortable, the very bottom is slightly ribbed to create more of a hold than other socks. This reduces the likelihood of developing blisters

Cost and Value
These are far and away the most expensive socks on the list. For two pairs you pay the equivalent of a 6 pack of a lower cost sock. The extra money buys you high-quality material, top-notch comfort, and a look that can go with everything from athletic gear to business casual attire.

Pros
  • Superior blend of synthetic microfibers for durability and comfort
  • Available in several colors
  • Traxion footbed keeps socks from slipping
  • fabric less likely to 'pill up' after washing
  • Arch compression for better stability
Cons
  • Patterned exterior is not subtle
  • Heel can wear out quickly

Compression
In addition to being a solid pair of crews, these also double as compression socks. By providing a tight seal around the lower legs, these socks improve circulation back to the heart which is helpful in conditions involving swelling, such as minor sports injuries.

The unobtrusive Low Cut design is more fashionable, while the mesh design and odor-eliminating finish keep you dry while avoiding excessive sweat and the unpleasant odor that can result. What's more, extra cushioning on the ball of the feet as well as heel and toe gives athletes the protection they need.
Expand to see more
Ultra Thin
Want to take breathability to the next level? The Superlite Low Cut has an ultra-thin mesh design across the top of the foot, so it almost feels as if you aren't wearing socks at all. Body heat easily ventilates providing unbeatable comfort.

Odor Resistant
In addition to creating an ultra-comfortable 'barely there' wearing experience, these socks are treated with an odor-resistant final layer, which repels the unpleasant smells that can build up after repeated, heavy use. Even after your heaviest workout sessions, you'll emerge fresh and ready for the day.

Cost and Value
As the old adage goes: "You get what you pay for". With all the little extras in the Ultralite's design, costs run higher on this model. If you're looking for longevity and a sock that works as hard as you do, this one fits the bill.

8. Cushioned Compression

These Quarter compression socks are built specifically with the athlete in mind, with additional support in the heel, extra compression in the arch for greater stability when standing or running, and an overall design that is heaver on padding than other comparable socks.
Expand to see more

While other socks on this list limit users to one color, these compression socks come in a variety of eye-catching designs, all capped by that iconic Adidas logo. These are aesthetically pleasing socks that will allow an athlete to take the field with confidence.

Snug Fit

The fit is a bit more snug and tight than other socks, ensuring that they won't slip or create blisters during use.

Cost and Value

The sock is designed to provide greater padding in the foot area with increased thickness before thinning out as it moves up the ankle so you won't sweat excessively when wearing these socks.
Expand to see more

Extra Padding
The main downside of crew socks is excessive heat. This is mitigated here with carefully deployed padding on the bottom and heel of the sock, with a more sheer thickness across the top of the foot so feet won't overheat even during strenuous use.

  • Extra padding in arch and heel
  • Thinner material on top for less sweating
  • Comfortable fit is tight around ankle but not compressing

10. Athletic No Show
These athletic socks are designed to sit low on the ankle without slipping down. They provide great cushioning in the heel and arch and are surprisingly durable given their small size. Your toes won't bore holes in them after heavy use. The black coloring should stay on the sock and not between your toes after a run through the washer. They ship in packs of 6 and provide a great value for the money.
Expand to see more
