The adisocks 12 are a well constructed football sock. Starting from the top, the material and for is comfortable, not being constructive but not flimsy and does not feel like the sock is going to fall down. The ankle area has a fitted area that once again is firm and helps hold up your shin pad and is not to tight. The foot region is well padded and comfortable, possibly a bit thicker would be absolutely perfect.
My son loves the style of these socks but found them difficult to get on. There isn't much stretch in them - and even less once they have been washed. Disappointing as they are good quality and have a padded sole etc - just not much use if you struggle to pull them on, especially over shin pads. My son is of slim build so it's not as if he has abnormally chunky legs!
My son is a pain when it comes to socks, particularly football socks. They're either too tight, too long, too itchy or have hard parts that touch his toes. Dillon put these socks on without one complaint! After 8 years of daily moans about one thing or another I thought I'd actually gone deaf when he put these on! But no! He was in fact happy! I will ordering more and highly recommend these especially for moany kids that have issues with socks! Thanks!
Absolutely perfect socks - love the ventilation, the cushioning and they stay up well. Careful of sizing - I'm 6'1 and wear 9.5 (43 and 1/3 in adidas boots) and get the 6.5 - 8 size as erring on the larger 'correct' size (8.5 - 10) results in a toe seam that catches inside the boot and they don't stay up as well. Length is not an issue with either size but err a bit smaller if you like them a snugger.
You would not have thought socks were that important; but a well fitting pair of cushioned socks make an enormous difference. These were the last in a series of efforts to find the perfect football sock, and they are superb. Choose these first.
These are great, good fit - I'm size 10.5 and ordered 10.5-12, thought they might be a bit on the large size but they're fine. Good quality, good price, super comfy and stylish. I bought 2 pairs. Haven't had them long but in my experience adidas football socks always last longer than other cheaper brands so well worth paying the extra couple of quid for quality.
These socks are rather tight - something I like as it prevents them from slipping down your legs during a game. Even without a shin pad slipped inside, the socks still remain where you put them from the minute you put them on. I feel as though I don't sweat as much using these socks, unlike others I have used previous. I wasn't actually looking for these socks, I was after a different pair however I'm extremely content with this product.
I got a couple pairs of these socks to wear while boxing and training. I have ankle problems, and socks that end anywhere below the top of my calf restrict circulation. These are the perfect solution: they go right up to my knee--when the top is folded over, which helps accommodate various heights or preferences--and maintain constant pressure on my calf, ankle and foot to keep down any swelling. They have padded toe and heel areas for extra protection and a sort of elasticised band around the ankle to keep them in place and offer a tad more compression. Really, a fantastic deal. Now, the sizing: I wear 9-9.5US in Adidas shoes, and the sock size 7812 (sometimes called 7-10, M or 3) are my preferred choice, but I don't wear any padding beneath them as would a soccer player plus I like them a bit tight. The size above those (9101, a.k.a. L or 4) also fit me fine but would offer more leeway for padding etc.
I LOVE HOW MANY COLORS THEY COME IN....YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO ALLWAYS CARRY THEM!!!ALL SOLKS EVENTUALLY WAER OUT.....I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A PAIR OF ORANGE SOLKS,AND/OR TEAL(TO MATCH MY FAV EVER ADIDAS SHOES...TEAL HIGH TOPS...I WENT BACK AND BOUGHT THE EXACT SAME PAIR AGAIN,SO I DONT HAVE TO BE SAD WHEN THE FIRST PAIR WEARS OUT!!! FOR REAL!!..I OWN 2 OF THE SAME PAIR...THE BACK UP PAIR IS TUCKED AWAY,WRAPPED THE BOX IN SARAN WRAP,SO NO DUST OR DIRT OR ANYTHING PUTS THEM AT RISK OF BEING ANY LESS THEN IMMACULATE,WHEN ITS TWIN TEAL PAIR WEARS OUT!!!!

IT IS ALLWAYS A THERAPUTIC EXPERIENCE!!
Great socks for sport! Not too thick like some of the more padded versions in the past. I'm an 8.5-9 size foot but find the next size up can snag up in your shoe where as these are nice and snug. Defo recommend.
I have purchased these Adidas socks for my 2 hockey playing children. These socks are great quality, with really thick cushioning on the bottom for extra comfort. My only problem was I ordered a size too small - the socks all have numbers on the bottom and this number would be really useful in the product description as I have loads of size 4 socks from previous purchases. I needed the socks on the day they arrived so have made do with the smaller size as I wouldn't have got the correct size in time. Size 6 1/2 - 8 has a number 3 on the bottom. I actually wanted number 4 which are the next size up 8 1/2 - 10. Size 10 1/2 - 12 have a number 5.
I purchased some footy socks recently along with some boots for free shipping and completely guessed the size as it was the most confusing thing ever! Why isn't it small, medium or large? They were decent socks but just to small!
i needed some new socks for my football matches. so i bought these as they were close to what i needed. i used them for the first time last saturday. i scored a goal and got man of the match. best socks ever
Hi all confused by the size codes: code = actual sizes 13k2 = 13k - 2 2124 = 2.5 - 4 4126 = 4.5 - 6 6128 = 6.5 - 8 8121 = 8.5 - 10 10-1 = 10.5 - 12 I would assume these sizes are US. Hope this helps!
The sizes had me confused at first but a phone call cleared it right up - 1212 (ex sm) is for shoe size 1 - 4.5 and 5612 (sm) is for shoe size 5-6.5 and 7812 (med) is for shoe size 7-8.5 and 9101 (lg) is for shoe size 9 and up. Hope this helps in chosing the right one for you :)
I had a similar sizing issues as one of the other reviewers. They really need to do something about the sizes when you order. How would I have known that 1212 was a kids size? This isn't common knowledge is it?
ordered these socks under the heading "men's soccer socks" and based on this description, decided a small men's would be the right fit. They ended up being some sort of children's socks i could't fit over my toes. . i ordered them on a rush basis, paid extra for that delivery charge as i needed them for a game and of course it was too late to return the product.
