Are footjoy roll tops so 1990s now?  That is all I have worn as long as I can remember.  Open to try others but those have always been the standard for me.

Falke golf socks! After years of searching I found the perfect socks. Played 36 holes last week-end, and for the first time in my golfing life I had no problem with my feet.

My concern is that I got a new pair of FJ spikeless shoes and my roll top socks still come up a good bit over the top of the shoe.  I guess shoes these days are lower cut.  So I'm trying to figure out if I should get some other socks to go with them so it looks better.

Been dealing with some blisters between the toes recently, I found that toe socks really help. I went ahead and got 4 or 5 pairs of Injinji off amazon and thats what I wear to golf now. Do my friends make fun of me? yes. Is it worth it? yes. #teamtoesock

Footjoy QuarterCrew socks if I am opting for cotton - just love the look/styling of these guys.

Callaway OptiDri/KentWool/or any performance golf sock I find when getting my cart up for free-shipping kick-in amount online.

I've tried them all and have blister problems.  For me - the Kentwool socks are the best by far.  It's not even close.  The wool protects your feet and is very breathable - they're just as good in the summer as in cooler weather.  They're amazing.  I found the stance socks to be too synthetic feeling.  My second favorite are the footjoy pro dry.  Check out kentwool, they often have coupon codes for discounts you can find online and sometimes they have buy one get one free with a code.  Definitely worth the investment.

Can't agree more. Kentwool just did a decent sale so I bought four more pairs, now have 10 total. I've found they are also great for running / working out.

Kentwool without a doubt the most comfortable socks I have ever worn even in 90+* weather with 80% humidity. Totally took me by surprise that wool socks would breathe so well!

Try them both and see which one you prefer.  I love Swiftwick, they stay up, breathe, very comfortable and made in the USA.  But others really prefer Kentwool, for similar reasons.

this will depend on whether you want a thin or thick sock...swiftwicks are thin, kentwools are thick; I have several of both, they are both outstanding

I hate seeing socks with shorts at least on me, so I have been buying 2(x)ist socks which are cut well below the ankle. They are awesome!

I get the no socks look without the blisters and stinky shoes.

Ordered some swiftwick zeros - size medium for my 9.5 foot.  They are too small and worked their way down my Achilles which is a pet peeve.  Anyone have similar issues and would a size large fix that?  Was going for as little sock showing as possible.

Just purchased some Kentwools.  Best, most comfortable golf socks I've ever tried.  Slightly thicker than my smartwools, but silky smooth.

Kentwool needs to make socks that are longer than their shorter ones but not full length. Something like quarter length socks. My shorter socks keep sliding down too far.

Darn Tough for all my socks.

Made in USA, Guaranteed forever.

Used to burn though socks every six months.   The DT's have lasted me over a year without a blowout.  When they do stretch or get a hole, the socks get sent back and new ones show up in the mail for free.

Swiftwick are very thin, and you definitely get the "100% polyester" feel when you put them on.  They are incredibly comfortable, and fit a big more snug than Kentwool if that matters.  Kentwool are very thick as far as socks go, and almost give you the "100% cotton" feel when you touch them.
Both are great socks, but if you prefer thicker, heavier socks, Kentwool is the choice.  If you prefer more of a spandex, ultra thin, sock - Swiftwick is your choice.  I own several pair of both, and often times it comes down to which shoe I am wearing and how much room in the shoe I have for the sock.

Smartwool phd hiking socks are the best for me great all year round and not to thick not to thin and last a long time. Downside is they cost 15$ a pair but worth it!!
