This week, we scanned Amazon's bestseller list for the highest-rated men's running socks, then pulled the best, most authoritative reviews for each. Ladies, we have a roundup for you, too.

Balega Blister Resist ($13) 


“By far the best socks ever. They fit well and provide cushion without being too hot or bulky. They also wash well and don’t fade, stretch, or shrink when washed on cold. These socks haven't pilled or look worn. I will always repurchase.”

Saucony Men's Running Socks ($13 for 6 Pairs)


“I love these socks. They have excellent breathability compared to almost every other sock that I've worn (at least a dozen different types over the years). The top of my feet and toes actually feel breezy. As someone whose feet literally drip sweat, these socks have been amazing, both wicking sweat away from my feet and keeping my feet from feeling swamped inside my shoes.”

Injinji Run 2.0 ($12)


“I have been a runner for about 35 years and have tried just about every combination of shoes and socks. There are other brands and types I like as well, and these Injinji socks are near the top of the list. They are really nice, high quality, comfortable socks. Great fit, I have oddly long toes and these socks still fit quite well.”

Asics Low-Cut ($9 for 3 Pairs)


“I didn't realize there were socks that were made with padding! I first tried these socks on at a specialty running store and fell absolutely in love with them. When worn with my running shoes (or any shoe for that matter), I have the most comfortable experience ever.”

Feetures Elite ($16)


These socks hug my feet perfectly but not too tight, so I never get blisters. I found these several years ago and now I am in a panic if I can't find my socks or they're all in the wash. I love the fact that there is a left and right sock, it makes it so easy to pair them up and stow in the drawer.”
