It all began on the back of a napkin in 2003, in a small town in the middle of South Africa. Husband and wife team, Bert and Tanya Pictor, set out to not only create the world's best performance running sock, but also give back to the community with every pair sold. Their story is built on the idea of giving back and is as rich and vivid as the country in which they were born and made. Balega(r) socks are like no other - they are as unique and different in their design as they are in their soul. There is more to Balega(r) socks than the fabric and thread. They carry heart, community, and the belief that no matter where we come from or who we are we are all one. Built to perfection, Balega(r) socks are expertly crafted to provide the fit, feel, and comfort runners need - from their first mile to their last.

These are so soft! I didn’t want to like them since they are pricey but I’m getting another pair. I got the medium and I wear a a 7.5. Other socks make by big toes hurt in shoes but not these. They wash great and stay on well.

Bought these several years ago. No wear so far, super comfortable. Fits like a glove, no bunching or scrunching! When walking in the woods, I like to have a higher sock to avoid getting bark chips etc down my sock into my shoe. These are PERFECT!

I ordered these for my husband who wears Size 13 shoes, and needed no show socks for the summer. These fit well and came in fun colors, plus a padded heel. He loves them and ordered more for himself.

The sock feels good on a regular (factory insole) but if you purchase an insole on your own it doesn’t seem to do anything but make it worse. I got a blister wearing these socks and didn’t have any issues prior to purchasing them wearing my standard work shoe:

Good supportive sock. Nice to find left/right socks. Only problem is that the color of the L/R symbol is close to the color of the sock. Makes it difficult to see. Make the symbol a contrasting color. I got the orange sherbet/gray.

I wear 9.5B in a regular shoe, 10B in my Hoka Bondi's. I ordered a medium and they fit perfectly. These are absolutely the best socks for running/jogging/walking. No blisters, even in Atlanta heat.

I bought Balega socks when I started walking at the recommendation of the walking store salesman. I wear nothing but Balega socks during the spring and summer with my Brooks GT shoes. They are perfect for walking uphill and downhill. They keep your feet from sliding. I have been giving them as gifts and my friends and family always comment on the comfort and support. Highly recommended - any Balega sock style.

Good quality socks. Wick away moisture well. From past experience with these socks, they will survive around three years with weekly washing.

Easily my favorite socks. This is my 6th pair of Balega socks that I own. After over 5 years of use I have yet to wear through any pair. I still own them all. The comfort and quality cannot be beat.
