I just switched to Icebreakers Merino Wool and they are great. Anything not cotton seems to work for me.

My favorite socks for running are Asic Kayano Classic Low Cut. My feet never feel wet when I run with them.
I like the "Experia by Thorlo" socks because they are well cushioned on the heel and balls of my feet. These are my long run socks
Otherwise I buy Asics socks. I don't know if another brand is nicer but I've been wearing these since I started running and never thought to try something else. Smartwool/Balega look interesting.
ETA: All my socks are tabbed or super low cut.

I like the Brooks brand socks. They are soft and cushiony and wear very well!

I don't wear socks often (I use VFFs sockless) but when I do, I really like the Drymax Run Hyper Thin

I wear sportek. I have to have very thin socks. I have tried the thicker ones but then my toes get squished. My feet tend to be quite wide at the toe box.
I actually wear Under Armor no show running socks and love them. Any time I switch to something else I end up with blisters. :(

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

Balegea for me too. Won't run without them.
I wear the CEP progression socks. I have 5 pair. I wear them every day and even sleep in them. They help your circulation and are just phenomenal. I have never had any blisters at all and since they are compression socks, they help you go faster (about 2-5%) and they help in recovery.
They work by squeezing the blood vessels that are close to the skin which causes blood to return to the heart more quickly.
I love them. The only downside is that they are expensive. I think they retail for $60.00 a pair, but in my opinion, they are worth it.
Wright socks double layer anti-blister. My feet blister easily and these seem to be the only ones that keep them at bay. Along with a bit of Body Glide.

I also wear the Balega sox. I like my sox a little taller though. Just something about anklets and no-shows I don't like.

I am always the seeker with my socks, I like the smart wool, and cool max. I am now trying X-socks for my long runs, they come with a 2 year guarantee and a serial #. weird, I know. Also trying fox river

I wear Thorlos (the really thick ones year round) and have for over 6 years now. The wick well and keep the blisters at bay for me.
I just saw your ticker that you are doing the PeachTree 10K! That is on my bucket list of races...you must let me know how it goes. Can't believe it's only 37 days AWAY!

I wear Smartwool socks all year. I wear the light ones in cooler temps, crews in the winter and ultra light in the warm temps. They keep my feet dry and I never have blisters.

I am a fan of bridgedale socks, particularly their bamboo line.

I LOVE my Balega socks. I wear the no-show, and they are so incredibly comfortable. I haven't had any issues at all with blisters - even after a 9+ mile run in 85 degree temps today.

What brand sock does the best job keeping your feet dry during runs?
I just got some Skecher sorb sock that are suppose to be made with moisture wicking....didn't notice any difference.
Thanks for your suggestions.
