Did you know that Balega is the number one selling specialty running sock in the country? Their best-selling style, the Balega Hidden Comfort, is this week’s inductee into the GoBros Sock Hall of Fame. The Hidden Comfort has been around for years and is a favorite among GoBros Staff and Customers. This is the sock that can truly make you see (and feel) the difference a good sock can make. Once you try them, it will be hard to go back to your old sock ways!

Balega’s Hidden Comfort socks are designed for athletes who want both a lightweight feel and superior protection. This style is Ideal for running, cycling, hiking and fitness walking. Our customers also found that the cushion level makes them great for golf or even for jobs that require hours on your feet.

Balega socks are engineered with the company’s proprietary DryNamix moisture management technology that keeps feet cool and dry while allowing free airflow for maximum comfort, performance, and durability. All of Balega’s running socks have been race tested and incorporate a hand linked seamless toe, eliminating abrasion across the top of the foot. The company also knits an extra deep heel pocket or “Fit Well,” ensuring that each sock fits the foot perfectly and does not slide down during a run.

Overall, our customers find the BAL8025 to be plush, comfy and great for preventing blisters. Although designed with runners in mind, our customers found that you do not have to be a runner to enjoy the Hidden Comfort.

Customer Reviews

These are my go-to socks for every length run! They stay up, keep my feet dry and are not overly compressive so I don’t get cramps. I have one in almost every color! -Kara
Best socks ever. Will never buy any other brand. Even if you don’t run, they are amazing. Good for rotations as a nurse. Keep my feet happy and the quality is great. I’ve had a few pairs for 2 years and they are still performing strong! -Grace
If you’re a runner, these Balega socks are a must. If you’re not a runner, they are just as fabulous! -Arlene
Best workout socks! I have a very heavy walk and wear these for both working out and golf and the cushioning is great. Toe cushioning keeps my big toe from poking through. I have very bad callouses on the bottom of the ball of my foot which are very painful if I walk barefoot, but when I put these Balega socks on I can even walk around in them before putting on my workout shoes — it’s amazing how comfortable they are. -BF
I love Balega hidden comfort socks primarily because they are seamless. The fact they are soft plush and comfy is a bonus. When I started running 10 years ago I would lose toenails on a regular basis. Took me about a year to learn the sock seam was the culprit. I switched to Balega seamless hidden comfort and never lost another toenail, happily running in them for about 9 years. -Erin
