    Whilst I'm with you as to normal socks, and I wear them too, but I have been thinking, just exactly what use is that extra 4 inches of sock? It's extra weight, it makes me sweat more, I roll them down towards my ankle anyway, which means my leg just above the ankle gets really hot, so is there any reason against ankle socks, besides the fact that they look gay ;P

    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 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.

    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...

    Yeah mine do that too, just above the heel, I suspect it's because that's where my orthotic ends, but I'm not sure. Basically it means I have 20 pairs of what would be good socks but have a worn area just above the heel on the back of the sock, argh.
