Inside-out puts the seams on the outside (and my OCD prefers it that way).
First session in... weirdest feeling. As an earlier post said, it's like having the world's piley-est carpet inside one's shoes. It made the shoe feel slightly loose, but there was no problem with traction as such. I'll keep an eye on this, but I expect it to calm down once the fluff is flattened.
Happily, the open-weave areas did keep me foot noticeably cooler over the entire session, and the sock doesn't get as wet (if you catch my drift) as the denser Karakals.
I got two pairs, but I'll stick with one to properly break them in.
Second session on the same pair, and much better. The pile seems to have been smashed down now (192 lb and narrow feet will do that). So, I'm left with a cheaper, better fitting and more breatheable Karakal. Win win.
^^ Yep my experience exactly. Now it's a matter of seeing how long this cushiony feeling will last. Mine are doing quite well after a dozen or so sessions.
according to the picture you've posted, it looks similar to the addidas i bought from costco. however, RKEP socks seems to be a bit thicker all around which is good for me since i've noticed that my addidas socks are coming loose and developing holes when my addidas are worn, then i'll think about buying the RKEP and giving them a try. thank you for the review. i should have included a disclaimer like yours when i wrote the review for their G09 grip!!!
I've seen those ones at Costco... this one is way way better, thicker and cheaper to boot!
alright, sold! i'll go ahead and order them as soon as my current addidas are worn out...another excuse to play more badminton
I bought Costco socks too . I think they were Champions. As soon as they wear out...I'll try some of these RKEP socks.
Post back a review when you try em. But be warned they'll feel weird the first few times as mentioned in the OP. .
Once I hear back from Eric re availability of NR800 & MSJJS I'll let you know and we can order a bunch of these socks too.
definitely, i'm excited again, yay!
do we have to get individual price quotes for each Victor racket or can we get like a catalog emailed to us or something?
I don't order enoug rackets to need the catalogue but I seem to remember someone mentioning they got one from Eric as they order frequently.
Are there any special washing instructions like no softener?
I don't think it matters. It's not drifit or such... it's just like regular socks with cotton and spandex etc.
I asked for a catalogue just so I could peruse through it (who wouldn't want to take a look at all the rackets they have?)... he won't give it to me, lol. Does it cost money to email a PDF or something?
Nice socks. Comfy. Size M was a good fit. I'll probably get some more when my other socks gets worn out.
Eric are you planning on getting them in different colours?
Instead of White/Black maybe in Black/White, Black/Red or White/Red?
Going to order some soon
will launch different colors
also low cut ankle socks
Will the ankle socks be available on eBay or via yourself? Don't want to make a purchase of these socks and find out the ankle ones are available soon.
