    Used to always get these on ebay with free delivery but now that parcel motel are now longer in the loop delivery is working out nearly the same as the price of the socks. Anyone recommend where to buy now? They're the only sock I've tried that doesn't cause chaffing.

    Try the likes of John Buckleys in cork. Should have them. Any of the specialised running shops would

    I've got them off Amazon before, though you might have the same prob with shipping.

    1000 Mile sock have worked well for me if you haven't tried those. They have good blister protection

    You won't go wrong with the Marathon Fresh sock from Hilly;

    Also, the Steigen socks are pretty good although I haven't raced a marathon in them, so can't speak to how they'd hold up in one.

    Amazon still listing them and offering free delivery to Ireland (with Prime) and they are below the value threshold so no extra charges

    what can these socks do that my penneys 5 pack for 1.99 cannot do? Do they have a carbon plate or something?

    :) I can only speak for my own pretty ropey feet, but I've ran in 'cheaper' socks before and my feet were in a pretty poor state afterwards. Even with the pricier socks, I find some of them leave my feet in bad shape, so when I find a couple of pairs that work I usually stock up on them.

    I've Puma socks (Power Cell), I think 6 for 10€ which are my go-to socks for longer rush and I've socks I've paid 20€ for that I hate!

    Another vote for 1000 Mile double-layer socks. I haven't had a blister since I switched to them.

    Best running socks I’ve ever had were from Lidl. Long wearing, comfortable and cheap. Any of the expensive brands I’ve tried never came close
