These socks are beyond amazing! I am in the military and I took these socks on three 4 mile humps and one 5 mile hump within 1 week and they definitely saved my feet and legs. The wear and tear that this kind of training does to our legs like shin splints, tendonitis you name it. I felt absolutely nothing on my legs or feet at the end of these 17 miles and it was done all in one week. So I highly recommend these socks to anyone that is interested in a pain free workout, definitely worth the money.
