When it comes to your feet, comfort is king. No matter what someone might tell you about the fancy attributes of a certain sock or running shoe, it doesn't matter if it isn't super comfortable for you. That's why we made comfort the highest ranked metric in this review, and why we feel the need to recognize the most comfortable sock that we tested — the Darn Tough Coolmax Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-light Cushion. Our Top Pick for Comfort, this sock truly exemplifies the ideal of "put it on, and then forget it's even there." The combination of Coolmax Polyester, nylon, and Lycra feels dreamy against the skin and stretches for a perfect fit, while the truly no-show toe seam ensures that there are no bumps or creases to rub or itch. If you want the most comfortable sock that money can buy and don't care as much about the rest, then this is the sock for you.
Our favorite sock is offered in two additional lengths for all your running needs. The Coolmax Vertex Quarter Ultra-Light Cushion is available for the slightly more expensive $17 alongside the Coolmax Vertex Micro Crew Ultra-Light Cushion for $18.
