    Maybe some sort of selling strategy. I was thinking I HAVE to pay more for the item than i pay for shipping

    Yeah, medium is better for you then. It does stretch anyways. I ended up giving my mediums to my wife who likes them very much.

    You could try them on if you like.

    That's why you probably won't see RKEP selling bowling balls on eBay.

    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.

    The only downside is that it was too cushiony initially when new as it felt slightly unstable like I was standing on a carpet with tall loops, but eventually this feeling faded as the socks got worn in after a few wearing and washing.

    For my size 8.5 wide feet, the medium size was too tight and the large fit better.

    Supposed to be based on the Karakal triple density socks and I've also seen similar designed socks from Yonex.

    (Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated to RKEP in any way or get any special treatment from them ... just a very satisfied regular customer. )
    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 bought Costco socks too . I think they were Champions. As soon as they wear out...I'll try some of these RKEP socks.

    I don't think it matters. It's not drifit or such... it's just like regular socks with cotton and spandex etc.
