i prefer to wear ankle socks. usually from adidas or nike, leaning more towards adidas socks more than nike. I havent tried the yonex ergo socks, but i saw a pair at the store and it was very intersting how they moved the seams so that they dont disturb the sides of the feet at the toe area so much... however, i only feel that problem with really old, about to die socks, so its ok.

i dun really have "special socks" when playing badminton! i think socks really play an important role during the game. cuz' i've worn a pair of thin socks before and it really, really hurts! it's like my toes are burning or something now it makes me think to buy a good pair of socks j/ for playing!

I either wear yonex or oakley socks - - also the thick tennis socks from Nike are ok.. Usually i fold them down as well to give extra cushioning in the heel.

When I saw the pictures on the website, I thougt that, but it was actually in a tennis magazine, I thin kthey have a sports version.
(By the way I apologise for being treacherous, and reading a tennis magazine-i wasnt intrested in it, I was forced to as there was nothing else to do)

I used to think that socks are just socks... as long as there were nice and thick..
that changed when I bought some proper socks from nike (dunno what range it is just that it had a tennis court with the swoosh- so I guess its for tennis)..
It had ridges on the arch area which provided additional support and damn that made a difference...
I usually end up with a pretty sore heel after 2 hours of play but with these new socks, I hardly felt anything...felt like another hour was a possibilty...
anyway, I always go for socks that are just 2-3 inches above the ankle... normal socks look funny with badminon shoes.

Heh! I think Wood_22_Chuck was referring to our new badminton moderator reading tennis magazine.

I chosse Thorlos tennis socks for better durability, while choose Yonex for comfortable and style.
Most of my socks, will tear in a certain position near heel...(After a few times I play badminton or tennis), hate that so much...
Only my Thorlos socks don't tear near heels...
