Good quality, comfortable and long lasting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Falke RU 4 Short Men's Running Socks (Sports Apparel)
I first encountered this brand when visiting South Africa in 2009/10. I purchased four pairs and they are only just beginning to wear out. When I found the brand on Amazon, I jumped straight in and bough another pair.
I would say that the price meant that I only purchased one pair as I was aware that this was a slightly different sock than the ones I already owned, and I didn't want to commit to multiple pairs until I was sure they would be just as good.
I am pleased to report that these socks are actually a little thicker than the previous pairs and are just as comfortable - possibly slightly more luxurious in feel and material. A quirk of some Falke socks is that they are imprinted with "L" and "R." This isn't for those who have problems with distinguishing one from the other but in fact is because the socks are actually shaped for each foot and the imprinting serves to make sure you never get it wrong.
I knocked off a star because the price is frankly a little high for a sports sock. However, given that they last such a long time, it is a trade off which I am willing to make.
