Ninja Sox - Page 16

post #226 of 300

I have been away on business every week since september, so I've had very few opportunities to wear my ninja sox prototypes that were sent to me. BUT I did have a chance to test out each one. 

 

Let me tell you guys, the Ninja Dress Sox are gonna blow your minds. I personally don't like the no sock look with dress shoes, but for those that do? These are incredible. They're very thin, which worries me in the sense that longevity may be an issue, but they are so breathable and have that perfect silhouette with a dress shoe. A true no show. I know these will be a big hit for Ninja Sox because they perfectly wrap the foot and don't bunch up at the ankle when trying to slip into a shoe. 

 

I also received a prototype similar to the current offerings, but this one had a lower side seem which was perfect for me. My original Ninja Sox worked perfectly with converse, supergas, Nike's and other trainers, but when it came to boat shoes, I still had some "Show." So for me, Ninja Sox were the true "mostly no - show" socks. But in the summer, I do like my boat shoes and penny loafers, so while Ninja was still the closest I'd found to a true no-show, it wasnt 100% effective with loafers. However, the second prototype I received totally rectified the situation. These really are true no-show's, even in boat shoes. I hope the rest of you who had that issue of seeing a little side sock peaking out also find the same results when the updated shape hits the web.

 

Now for the most odd of the bunch. I received an almost alien style mitten sock that I was not fond of but have been assured that it was just an idea and not a likely future product. This one literally had a divider between the Big Toe and the other 4. You slipped the sock on and your big toe slipped into his home, and the other guys rested in their home. This is not my bread and butter. I always hated that weird trend that girls went through with the five-finger rainbow toe socks. This was like a bad reminder of that. If however you're into that kinda thing and have been dying for an opportunity to wear no-show socks with flip-flops...have I got a treat for you. PM and I'll ship em to you :) jk. 

 

Needless to say, the dress sox and updated silhouette of the standard ninjas are bound to make a lot of people happy. I can imagine every fashion blog and magazine highlighting the dress socks as a MUST HAVE for spring/summer 2013. They truly are. I actually might like them better than the standard ninja sox even for wear with my Superga's and Nike's. Theres something about the thinness of the material that just makes them feel so seamless and appropriate when one is searching for a true No-Show. 

 

I have pics on my digital cam at home but I'm 4 hours away from it, so I can't upload right now, but I did want to get a review out there in the meantime. I've been too slow to post my comments but I wanted to have the opportunity to give each sock a few machine washes and wears. They have all certainly held up to regular laundering and drying. No holes or wear patterns to report just yet.

odd coincidence i was wearing my regular white ninjas today and thinking how it would be nice if they made a "thicker" more substantial pair. seems like it would make them more durable also they would balance out the rubber insert a bit more?

Thanks for the awesome review Daniel!

 

Yes, we're working on some new samples and based upon everyone's feedback, we're trying to make the perfect pair.  Yes, we're also working on some thinner versions for you to wear with your dress shoes or loafers...just trying to get the thickness/thinness just right.  We're also working on the 'cut' of the socks so that every pair can be COMPLETELY ninja, regardless of what shoes you're wearing.

 

Please let me know if you guys have any more thoughts/ideas/feedback and I'll be more than happy to address them or try to make some new prototypes that will fit everyone's needs.

 

As always, thanks for the continued support!

 

@dgonsh - once we get our new designs in, you'll be the first to receive them, compliments of Ninja Sox.  Expected to be released this coming Spring.

Still working on finalizing some of our designs, but once it's ready, I'll definitely keep you in the loop.  Should be a month or so before I find out.

Much appreciated.  I've been hoping there would be a discount before the weather warms up.

 

Thank you very much Ninja Sox.

Thanks for the code! I just happened to be reading the other thread and saw the suggestion. Your promo code finished off the impulse buy. 12-pack in gray on it's way to me. Thanks again.

Thanks guys!  I know it's not the Ninja Sox wearing season right now for a lot of you so I was going to hold off on sending out the discount code.  But then I saw the other thread and thought, why not?  I guess for those of you who are stuck in the cold, you can always buy Ninja Sox to wear when you work out.  If not, we'll see you all in the Spring.

Unfortunately my Ninja Sox appear to be too small :(

 

I went for men's 9-12 and normally wear dress shoes size 8 and Nike/Adidas runners size 9.5/10 and the socks are very tight and leave indentations where the sock is too tight at the edges. This is even from a pair I've washed a couple of times (I thought they might stretch out). I've never worn close to a size 12 shoe so this is disappointing.

@aussiejake

 

Sorry to hear that the socks didn't fit you well.  Like I said  earlier in this thread, everyone's foot is a different width, so even though the shoe size is the same the socks might fit differently.  I included a decent amount of spandex in the socks so that they'll have some stretchability, but maybe it's just not enough.  I'm also a 9.5-10 and they fit perfectly for me.  Not sure about other users on this forum.

 

Either way, please send me a PM and we'll figure out sometime for you.  Maybe I can send you the Large size to try out?  You're located in Australia, right?  Either way, I want to make sure you're happy with socks, so we'll work something out.

 

Thanks for reaching out to me about the sizing.  Hopefully I can make a product that fits perfectly for everyone. =)

Ordered a 6 pack of white last night. Haven't found any working no-shows for boat shoes and sneakers yet. Nothing worse than ruining nice shoes with sockless summer swamp foot.

 

Fingers crossed!

Any chance there's still a discount code out there? Tried the SFPROMO30 one without any luck.
