My doctor recommended these to me five years ago to prevent blisters when I used to play basketball
. I wore them religiously, then quit the game for a while. Not many indoor courts in NYC. I started playing again a few weeks back at the NYC rec centers. Sure enough, I got four painful blisters, two on each foot. Bought the three pack of these socks
. I play once or twice a week now and never get blisters. From past experience, years back, I found that these socks
wear out kind of fast, but that's the point, right? They are a sacrificial layer between your shoe and your skin. The sock gives itself up for your foot. Like a Jesus sock. Anyway, at the moment none of the six socks
are showing any wear after about three uses each, so they'll probably still last you a while.
