    Can you guys also post the model number and where can I buy it?
    I have been looking for high quality (high cotton thread number) socks.
    I prefer low cut (just covering a bit above the ankle joint). Don't like those long calf socks, too old style.

    I'll second that. Darn bloody best value for money socks you can find for every use aside from boots.

    Rkep are the best in cushioning regardless of the inexpensive price.

    For other brands, maybe Puma, Adidas, etc. You just have to feel them at the store.

    Any brand running socks should do fine as they were created to prevent blisters in the first place. You have to feel and try it for yourself.

    If you have access to army (land) socks, it might be as good, if not better than any sports socks. A lot of my army friends use their army socks for badminton and they find it better than any brands.

    For me, blisters still form no matter what socks I wear. I rub some moisturizer, put a plaster and a tape to secure the plaster to prevent blisters. It has worked very well so far, no matter what socks I wear. But I prefer RKEP as it's much comfortable than other brands I have tried...

    Have to agree too the RKEP sock are really comfy and of good quality and it's cheap! But its not really low cut to me....only like slightly shorter than the normal length socks :)
