I use Injinjis. Unfortunately they are not cheap, but they are the only ones that prevent chafing and blistering on my toes. This is a particular problem for me on longer runs.

Aldi socks have been fine for me, only had one blister so far which was caused by a small stone getting into my shoe rather than the socks

The Aldi running socks that they sell as individual pairs rather then the packs of 3 pairs are good. They have lasted me better than Sweatshop ones that cost a lot more.

I use the Karrimor from SportsDirect, cheap and do the job. I kept getting blisters then changed shoes, I had done about 800 miles in them though so I was easily due a change.

For cheap and cheerful I use More Mile socks. They are very good for the price. I have a single pair of Thorlo socks which come out once a week for long runs. They are much more plush but about 11.99 per pair.

Since it's getting cooler you might like to think of long socks (not compression socks). H&M do packs of two pairs for a reasonable price, in fluorescent orange, green or black. Football socks might do too. If it gets cold you could consider ski socks.
I'm a fan of long socks because it puts off the day when you have to use long trousers because of the weather. Shorts always earn more brownie points in cold weather

I have always worn the More Mile ones. there are several different models, and I use the short London ones for the road and the slightly longer I think they are called Montana for the trails and hills. they are just fine and fairly cheap on ebay.

I wear 2 pairs - is this unusual? Nike Dri Fit calf lengths (which are quite thin) underneath and a cheaper pair (Karrimor usually) on top. I find this gives me the cushioning I am looking for and since I have been doing this I find I get less foot pain and no blisters whatsoever. Works for me.
