    Yonex badminton high-end socks that worn by Professional Players. Japan high end Version Made in Japan

    Yonex crew socks are lightweight breathable socks specially designed for intensive badminton play. The socks has thick layers on areas that needs more padding and thin layers on areas that does not need it. This make the socks much more breathable and comfortable compared to regular sports socks.

    Color: White color
    only for 23~26cm, left and right
    Composition: 51% Cotton, 30% Acrylic, 16% Polyester, 3% SPANDEX


    I just luv this as Yonex Badminton socks are very different, thick, not as thick as hiking socks, but thicker than the normal ones. but what makes it different is that it is very very dense. like higher thread count, and the texture of the socks are smooth, not towel like where you can see the individual thread. but it is more like a very very fine, very dense and very soft soft carpet.

    Many players with the socks

    I love the Puma running socks with added support. They provide fantastic wrap-around the arches for additional support considering most court shoes are weak when it comes to any sort of arches.

    Badminton socks do make a difference for me. I have similar socks pictured above and some Victor ankle socks, which feel so awesome!

    The one at posted by OP is the Yonex 19022 (mens' socks). I use the 1938 (mens' socks) which cost less but has the Very Cool mesh while the earlier doesn't.

    Karakal X3 inside-out - incredibly soft with good cushioning. If I could afford it I would have 15 pairs for everyday use:D.

    Hehe - puts the seam, and the fluffy side of the material, on the outside, making it far more comfortable on long sessions. I wear all my socks this way;).
