    Are the socks thin enough to wear with loafers?
    Or are they more of mid-weight construction, intended primarily for use with sneakers?

    Will work w loafers. Not super thick cotton, it's a more plush, thin material.

    well, i just ordered a 3-pack ... hoping that they deliver on the promise

    on a positve note, these are slightly less expensive than a similar product offerred at http://www.moccsocks.com/

    No problem! From one SF'er to another, we all want to look clean when we go out!! Haha Enjoy. Anytime you win the lotto just remember me haha


    Yes, mid-weight and def. could wear with loafers. Did you see my pic above? Or maybe that was in the loafer thread. Very breathable yet thick enough to withstand tons of walking


    Right on! I just ordered another 6 pack in white for the upcoming summer. I think they had a 10% coupon somewhere. I can find it and share

    Would like to also touch up on this. Have been through was and dryer multiple times, still holding up quite nicely. Definitely great socks!

    ^ People who hang dry their socks need to put it in the dryer at least for 15-20 to kill the germs. Last thing you want is stinky socks, feet and shoes, right?

    Yes, the ninja's hold up quite well. I've had mine ... for over a year easy and no holes or anything. I bought some more b/c I'm now becoming a full convert to ninja's

    @Kwaker: As part of my competitive research, I bought several pairs of Mocc Socks as well to test them against my Ninja Sox. I'm obviously biased, but I found that my socks fit better and were cheaper. While MoccSocks slipped off my heel and felt too bulky, our socks fit perfectly and the no-slip feature really worked wonders. If you get a chance to buy MoccSocks or any other competitor, please let me know your honest feedback. There's always more room for improvement. Thanks!

    I have a pair in black that I received as a gift and it's an awesome sock. Stays on and is invisible with loafers and boats.

    I was looking forward to getting a few pairs, but shipping kind of kills it for me for something like socks. Looks like a good product though.

    I disagree with your notion of just "socks". Socks can be an accessory but in the case of Ninja's, they help make your 'Fit better because they are true no show, ya know?

    Look for a 10% and if there is one then you are halfway there

    I understand what you mean. I'm trying to step up my sock game, but I'm more of a fan of being able feel the products in front of me first, especially if I gotta pay 9 bucks for shipping a couple pairs of socks. I'll probably cop if there's a promotion or something.

    EDIT: just went to the website again. I see they're fully sold out now, awesome.

    I wouldn't waste your $ on mocc. I read some reviews last night (about 3 or 4 on diff sites) and they said they sucked ahahah.

    Slippage, tearing after 5 or so washes, and supposedly discoloration of the blacks. I don't know how a sock would discolor that quickly but maybe they are using hard detergent?:embar:

    yeah i already own mocc socks. i wouldnt buy again cuz of the heel slippage. i dont have any tearing or discoloration but the heel slippage is enough for me never to buy them again

    i got them when they first came out like a year or two ago and have been looking for an alternative for a long time so hopefully ninja sox can hurry up :)

    @loneyeh @randomkoreandude @k4lnamja

    I apologize for running out of Ninja Sox. I really didn't think I would get this much support and I honestly thought I would have enough until my next shipment arrives. I will be setting up a discount for those of you who would like to purchase the socks in advance. I need to make some tweaks to the website to accommodate your backorders but rest assured, I will discount those of you who commit to buying my socks now.

    Please stay tuned for some more info.

    @loneyeh - The $9 shipping on the socks is for a dozen pairs or more. Unfortunately this is my cost to ship using Priority mail. I can lower costs by using First Class mail, but that'll take a couple more days to arrive. I'm looking into Fulfillment by Amazon to see if they can lower my shipping costs which I can relay directly to you. In the meantime, I'll set up a discount code for free shipping to those of you who are willing to purchase now for delivery in a couple months. Will that work for you guys?

    yes def im game :)

    you could do a styleforum discount for those of us that follow you on here

    edit: yeah options for cheaper shipping for first class would be nice since these are just socks, or if you can do the amazon route that works too.

    and yeah styleforum is just a bunch of cheapskates (im included)
