Wherever is cheapest! I always get Injinji socks though - love them, never had a blister since I started using them.

I get cheap ones from eBay. more mile or something. I've never had a problem with them. There must be a reason proper running socks from running shops are so expensive but I'm not sure what it is.

I'm not a fan of wicking sports socks, as I can feel my feet slipping about in them.

I usually just get cotton sports socks from somewhere like Sainsbury's. I've never had a problem with them rubbing either.

Sports direct normally suffices, I did used to like the double layer Nikes for longer runs though as I would get blisters.

I kept trying to find socks that combined comfort and longevity. Finally found some and now always buy the same.

If heading for the mountains or anywhere cold and wet I wear BRIDGEDALE CoolFusion RUN Qw-ik Merino Running Socks, they are the best socks I've ever worn and being Bridgdale they last for agessssssss, they're 6 a pair in Black's at the moment which is a bargain.

Over recent years a lot of running socks have started being made with high amounts of Nylon aka Polyamide in them, I HATE these socks, I've never had much trouble with blisters but if I wear Polyamide socks I get them constantly, in just cheap cotton socks I'm fine, I have cotton socks from Debenhams and ASDA, both perform perfectly for normal everyday running.
