Sports Socks

IMG_7971Brand : Crane (Aldi Brand)

Size : Men's size 6 – 10

Review : These socks work well, and a pair I bought at the beginning of the year have stood up well to the tests they were put through. They have travelled many km, sometimes in the same day. The almost seamless aspect of the heels did not produce any blisters (after a 24km trek), while the padding on the toes, heels and base of the foot added that extra little bit of comfort when being worn. The firm fitting band around the middle of the foot made these socks feel secure, which produced less slippage inside the shoe. The top of the sock is a mesh type of material, allowing your foot to breathe while being worn, and this is enhanced by the addition of coolmax.

I personally like the fact that they are ankle length socks, as anything over that tends to annoy me, and this way I don’t need to fold, push down or roll in order to keep them comfortable. I like these socks so much that when Aldi bought them back into stock, I bought a new set (3 pairs bundled together).

The bad part about these socks is that they only seem to be in men's sizes, which shouldn’t really be a problem as they are made to sit comfortably and securely on your foot and I have had no problem with the sizing (women's shoe size 9). The other bad part is that they only come into the stores occasionally as Aldi regularly changes it’s stock and once they are gone, they are gone, and you need to wait for the next time they appear in the shops, which means you can’t just buy them when you want them.

Price : $9.99 for a 3 pack
