I always wear trainer socks when I wear my trainers as I wouldn't wear them without socks but don't like seeing longer socks sticking out of the top of my trainers. These Puma trainer socks are perfect as they just overlap my trainers by about a centimetre and as the ones I chose are white they are not very noticeable but they also came in pink and black. I also wear ankle socks under my ankle boots as I find them the most comfortable to wear and seem to keep in place.
I bought these in a pack of three from Sports Direct and paid just £4 which I thought was a good price. I have previously seen them at Sports Direct for £4.99 and also online from £4 to £7. They have the Puma cat and Puma logo which give them a sporty look which is in a medium grey colour. They are made of 65% cotton, 33% Polyamide and 2% Elastane which helps to give them their stretch which you notice when you are putting them on and they really do feel soft.
The soles are slightly cushioned so they are soft to walk on and comfortable to wear. I bought them in sizes 3-5 and find that they fit quite snugly but not too tightly but if I inadvertently shrunk them in the washer or dryer this could be a problem. They also came in sizes 6-8 but these would definitely have been too big as I am a size 4 and a half or 5.
I have found these socks very easy to wear, they haven't rubbed or irritated my feet at all. I have worn them when I have been jogging and they have not slid down into my trainers and have kept my feet warm but not made them sweat too much. I wash them in my usual 30 degree wash and I have tumble dried them just to finish them off but will usually dry them on the clothes airer due to the high cotton content.
White socks don't usually stay very white for long but these don't look too bad and seem to be keeping their colour more than cheaper socks I have bought. But at £1.33 a pair I don't mind too much replacing them if they begin to look too grey. I would buy these socks again and recommend them as good everyday sports socks.
Although I believe that socks are a necessity to stop my feet from smelling in my trainers, I have never been a fan of the sock over the ankle look and therefore am regularly looking out for new pairs of ankle socks. Put quite simply an ankle sock is basically a shorter than normal sock which ensures that it hides out of sight inside my trainer and personally I prefer this look. As a result of my old ankle socks beginning to look a little worse for wear I went on the hunt before Christmas for some new ankle socks and found my local JD Sports a great place to look.
The socks that I came home with were these Puma ankle socks which I believe can be worn by both women and men seeing as the sizes range from a small '2.5 - 5' to a much larger '9 - 11'. There were only two colours to choose from in my local sports store those being black or white and each came in a set of three pairs. Being that I wear white trainers I opted for the white socks and these looked pristine with their mainly white block colour and black cat and puma logo illustrated on the toes and heel. The socks feel very stretchy to the touch and yet quite soft and they have a slightly thinner feel to that of a standard sock which is great in my opinion as it ensures that my feet can breathe in these socks and that I can firmly tuck them down inside my trainers out of sight. As I am a size six I went for the middle size which is a '6 - 8' and found these to fit snugly around my feet and ankles without any of the fabric gathering or looking loose and I attributed this to the very stretchy feel of these socks.
Personally I think that these socks work best when worn underneath trainers as oppose to longer footwear such as boots. This is because I find that when worn with boots these socks can cause the thin skin around my ankle to chafe inside my boot and cause blisters. With trainers these socks rise about half a centimetre above the height of the trainers and therefore are only just visible. The thin material of these socks ensures that they feel cool and comfortable inside my trainers and do not have much bulk therefore giving my toes more room to move around. The thin texture of these socks does mean that they are not the warmest sock that I own and are not thick enough to withstand the cold surface of my hard flooring however, they are more than adequate during times when I am going for a bit of exercise.
To care for these socks I find that by washing them in a cool 30° wash they come out fresh and clean. The thin fabric of these socks ensures that they dry quite quickly and I typically find that by leaving them to dry on my airer the socks are dry by the end of the day. As these socks are quite stretchy they have kept their shape very well and have not gained any size however, these socks are not quite as white as they were when I first purchased them and I am sure this is down to a couple of factors including the fact that they may have been put in a darker wash cycle by accident more than once.
In terms of price, I paid £6 for a pack of three pairs of these socks which equates to £2 per pair. I think this is good value for money however I was dismayed to see them on Amazon recently for only £4, I will certainly be keeping an eye out for the best price in the future.
I like these socks and think that they are good value for money and quality in construction. As a result I would recommend them and they score a great five stars from me.
I hope this review has been of some help and thanks for reading! x
Puma ankle socks are great value as you can get three pairs for around about £5 which is more or less than most high street shops but the Puma ones are much better quality and don't wash out of shape after one wash.
I have some in black, pink and of course classic white. They are primarily designed to be used with trainers but there is nothing to say that that's all you should wear them with. Personally I wear them quite a lot with ankle boots as I don't really like going bare foot but there is nothing worse than seeing a sock poke out the top of a nice black boot. With these being ankle socks they don't go any higher than the ankle bone so can be worn invisibly with loads of different shoes.
They are also a really comfortable fit and the elastic isn't so tight that it is uncomfortable but it isn't so loose that they fall down either. They pretty much stay in place all day and the elastic doesn't cut my circulation off. They are really really thin so they don't feel uncomfortable and rub against my feet when I am walking either.
With some coloured socks they lose their colour after one wash but these pretty much retain their colour and even the black ones are still nice and dark. The white ones do need an occasional boil wash to remove staining from jeans, shoes etc but they come up nicely and don't shrink to childrens sizes after being washed.
The socks also feel nicer to the touch than some I got from high street shops such as new look and are made with nice soft quality cotton and you can definitely feel that they are good quality when you touch them.
For £5 for a pack of three Puma ankle socks are great value and really nice to wear and would be something that I would recommend to people.
I do quite a lot of sport and I often wear 3/4 length trousers or cropped trousers to play in, especially in the summer time. When I'm wearing trousers like this I don't like to wear long socks as I think they look really funny so I like to wear ankle socks that you can't really see once you have your trainers on.
These Puma socks are perfect for sport and wearing with trainers. Ankle socks mean that when you put them on they finish just around the ankle. I find these fit on my feet perfectly and they have a little bit of elastin around the ankle portion so they will stay up and do not ride down your feet or anything like that. When I have my trainers on also the top of the trainers and the laces sort of hold the socks in place too so they do not slip when you are running or walking.
These socks are just plain white but have a little picture of a Puma on which is the logo of Puma clothing. They can be worn with any colour of trainer and sports wear which I like. The socks are made of 65% cotton and have some 33% Polyamide and like I've mentioned above, 2% Elastane to keep them up around the ankle. The socks are also cushioned quite a bit as well so I find them very comfortable to wear. They do not rub and also are not annoying around the toe area which some sports socks can be. They work really well when I am running around to keep my feet warm but also dry as well and I find they never really make my feet sweat which is nice.
The socks come in a pack of three which I find handy as I usually always lose one from one pair, have one in the wash and one I am wearing so three pairs is the perfect number. A pack of three costs £4.99 from sports shops which I think is a really good price for good quality sports socks.
This is a review of the Puma ankle socks (well, I call them trainer socks actually) since 2006. I don't wear trainers all the time so they have sporadic use but these socks have a special place in my heart although you can buy them in the UK, I bought mine in New York when I realised that we were going to be doing a lot of walking and I had packed an inadequate and unsuitable cheap and thin type of trainer socks that were self evicting as you walked along.
I bought the socks from a well known discount store called Century 21 which is situated near the site of the World Trade Centre and close to the subway where you go for the Liberty Island tour. Consequently we visited this store a few times during our 2006 trip to buy presents and suchlike. The shop was a bit like TK Maxx in the variety of goods it sold and the socks were a purchase I intended to use during the trip so were made early on. I also had to make sure they would fit my big feet (size 8-9) and I was pleased to note that they did.
The socks came in a bundle of three pairs and were held together with a cardboard header and plastic clip and shelf hook.
I paid around $12 for the socks which was not cheap but they were clearly good quality and a purchase I appreciated during the trip when my feet were comfy.
This was one of the first things I noticed about the socks. They were so thick they felt padded and I knew they were designed to be comfortable. The socks were white with a bit of a cushioned rim which sits around the ankle and it also has the puma logo on the ankle.
I immediately noticed my boyfriend, (who proposed to me on the trip and is now my husband) eyeing up the socks when we were back in the hotel room. At three pairs a pack and at least that many days left on the trip I warned him off and told him I was not sharing the socks!
I will definitely return to this brand in the future as they have turned out to be the best ever trainer socks I have owned, talk about long lasting as well! For some reason as well I have managed to retain all three pairs and they haven't done that irritating disappearing job that odd socks tend to do. For the money paid I have more than had my money's worth out of the socks, they have done numerous gym sessions, walks and holidays and are still nice and white and haven't bobbled or stretched. Most importantly they stay on your feet and don't roll down or shift when you start walking. The extra cushion in the sock provides comfort without them being sweaty (no nylon content) and you just don't even know that you are wearing them. A good all rounder in my opinion.
Highly recommended and a definite repurchase for me in the future.
I have three pairs of Puma Ankle Socks Women which I bought mostly for when I wear trainers as this tends to be the only time that I wear socks. I bought the socks in a pack of three from my local independent sports shop and they cost me £6.25 for the three pairs - which obviously equates to just over £2 for each pair. Although this is cheaper than a lot of socks on the market, especially those that you can buy in supermarkets, I just thought they seemed like good quality socks and so I thought they would be especially good if I was planning on doing a lot of walking or playing sports.
These socks are all white and each have a grey puma on the long side of the sock. They are made from cotton and polyamide and there is elastine in them also and so this means that they are somewhat stretchy and so they can be stretched to fit most feet sizes. I am a size 7 and the socks fit me perfectly. I particularly like that these are trainer socks and so this means that they are designed to cover the feet only where the trainers touch and so my ankles are left bare and so it isn't obvious to others that socks are being worn. When I'm wearing my trainers with these socks I can see the top ribbing part of the socks, but only just.
The socks are comfortable to wear. They are quite soft and, as I said perfectly, they fit well and will stretch to fit. They are quite thin and so they don't contribute to getting my feet hot and sweaty, but they are thick enough that they ensure that my trainers do not rub. I particularly like that the trainers do not ride down when I wear them because I absolutely hate it when socks rub down and ending up collecting under my foot!
The socks wash well and they have maintained their white colour - although they are slightly more of a dull white than when I first bought them. There is no bobbly bits on the socks and they have stayed soft and haven't lost their shape or stretchiness.
Overall, I would recommend these socks even though they cost a little more.
As you may have seen from previous reviews I go up the gym on a regular basis, recently I decided that my old gym stuff was starting to look a bit worn so decided to take a trip to a local cheap sports shop to purchase some new shorts and T shirts. After I made my purchases I realised that one thing I hadn't brought were some new socks, for the gym I like to wear thin ankle socks, ones which do not come far up your legs but also thin to help keep my feet cool. I couldn't be bothered to take another trip back to the shop so decided to have a look online for something suitable and also reasonably priced. After having a look around I came across a pack of 3 Puma Ankle Socks or Trainer Liners as they are sometimes called, perfect for what I wanted, as well as being pink and white ideal to go with the new gym clothes I had just brought.
The ankle socks as I have mentioned come in a pack of 3 and look just like any other ankle socks. In the pack you get 2 pink pairs and one white pair, I have to say the pink ones are my favourite. Each pair has the word Puma stitched onto the back of the heel areas and the Puma logo (a picture of a Puma) stitched on the top of each sock, this is positioned so that it sits just across your toes. The white pair has the Puma logos stitched onto them in pink, one pink pair has the logos stitched on them in white and the second pink pair has the logos stitched onto them in a slightly darker coloured pink, all of the logos contrast the colour of the socks, but I think the pink pair with the pink logo stands out the least compared to the other two pairs. Other than the Puma logos the socks are quite plain, there is other detail on them at all, not that this was a problem for me after all I only wanted to wear them for the gym.
The Puma ankle socks are actually described as Trainer Liners, this is because they are made from a very thin material, I did wonder whether they would cause my trainers to rub my feet, with them being so thin my concern was that they would not provide enough protection. After I put the socks on for the first time I was convinced that would not get on with them as they were thinner than I had expected despite them being described as 'liners' but I decided to give them a go. What I did find as I wore them was that I hardly noticed they were there, they did not make my feet even more hot than what they already were from exercising, they let my feet breath and helped to keep them cool. After I had been wearing the socks in the gym for a while I was pleased to see that they were not causing my trainers to rub my feet at all, despite them being so thin they were still providing enough protection for my feet whilst keeping my feet cool, there's nothing worse than wearing thick socks in the gym which cause your feet to sweat, personally I find that this just makes me even hotter, whilst wearing the Puma trainer liners my feet we kept cool and feeling fresh. The socks are made from 65% cotton, 33% polyamide and 2% elastane, personally this doesn't mean a huge amount to me, but I do know that cotton products are ideal to wear at the gym as they do help you to stay cool whilst working out, this was definitely the case with these socks.
My next issue was going to be whether they stayed up and in place as I moved around, I have had cheap ankle socks before which after wearing for a little while end up slipping down and fold up inside your shoes/ trainers, not very comfortable at all. The Puma ankle socks have a slightly ribbed ankle area which when I put them felt like the elastic in them was reasonably strong, but the real test was going to be as I started to exercise. Again the Puma Trainer Liners stood up to the test, the ribbed cuff around the ankle contain strong enough elastic to keep the socks in place, but it was not so tight that it cut into your ankle, the ribbed area is slightly thicker than the rest of the sock so this provided a bit of added comfort as I wore the socks, not that they were uncomfortable at all. So overall I was extremely pleased with my Puma ankle socks, they are extremely comfortable to wear, kept my feet cool whilst protecting them from he inside of my trainers, and also stayed in place as I exercised without rucking up inside my trainers.
I purchased my Puma Trainer Liners online from M & M Direct, for a pack of 3 it cost me just £4.99, according to the site they retail at £9.99 meaning I saved myself £5.00, however I'm not too sure how exact this is. Personally I feel that £4.99 for 3 pairs of Puma ankles socks is a bargain, they are of an excellent quality so definitely worth the money, some of the socks sold in the sports shop are a lot more expensive especially if they are a brand name as with these particular socks.
My Puma Trainer Liners are machine washable and so far have proved to be very hardwearing. They do get a lot of use and are washed regularly, obviously this depends on how many times I go up the gym, but they have been washed a considerable amount of times now and still look as good as new, they are showing no signs of wear and tear and are in perfect condition. Despite the extra thin material the socks have not developed any holes at all which I did wonder whether they would with constant wearing and washing but so far this has not been the case.
The socks come in only 2 sizes these consist of sizes 2 - 5 and sizes 6 - 8, if anything I would say this is the only down side about the socks as the sizes are very general, however I have the 6 -8's and these are perfect for me, not too big at all, If anything the sizes could be a problem for some people, but for me this is not an issue and would not put me off this product.
Overall I would defiantly recommend the Puma Trainer Liners, they are perfect for wearing in trainers whilst exercising, they are thin leaving your feet feeling cool and fresh, do not roll up inside your trainers and are extremely comfortable to wear. They are very reasonably priced when brought online and have proved to be very hardwearing. These socks do not just have to be worn with trainers for sports but could be worn in any shoes/ boots you wish to wear them in, I have tried mine in boots and again they are just as comfortable. I have been very pleased with my Puma Trainer Liners, and would definitely purchase them in the future as well as recommend them to anyone, especially those who enjoy sport and exercise.
==Puma Ankle Socks==
I don't often find the need to wear these trainer socks in the summer as I am not a big trainer wearer except for sport and the like. Since I have started running I find that my ankles get really hot and feel terribly uncomfortable. I haven't the thinnest of ankles either and more often than not regular sports socks feel far too tight on me and I end up having to fold them over.
So it was only when I was picking up some of my new summer high heeled sandals from ASOS that I stumbled across these ankle socks from Puma. The thing that drew me into them was the fact that they were proper trainer liner type of socks and the ones that can't be seen when you are wearing them. It seems that so many of these socks that are meant to be small ankle socks are still too high and end up getting seen above the line of the trainer and this is not a good look in my opinion.
A pack of three of these socks cost £6 which is not especially cheap but I did have a little look elsewhere online and I couldn't see this same design for any cheaper especially since I was already ordering something from ASOS.
The pack contains three different colours of the sock and there is a clack pair, a grey pair and a white pair. I find this better than just getting a set of white socks especially as my running trainers are black and if I wear my cropped exercise trousers the trainers are even less noticeable.
The socks themselves are really good and although not 100% cotton they don't seem to get my feet hot or sweaty but then again I always seem to have pretty cold feet. They are made up with 65% cotton, 33% polyamide and 2% elastine. The elastic really gives them the snug and close fit which makes them stay on the back of my heels well even when running.
The socks feel comfortable to wear and they have washed up really well too with no noticeable wearing considering I have had them for a good few months now. They are not suitable for the tumble dryer however because of the elastic content and would probably shrink if they were to get put in there.
All in all I think these socks are great. They weren't the cheapest socks you can get but because they have the Puma name to them and the fact they are true "hidden" socks I feel that they are worth the money. In fact I wouldn't mind getting myself another three pairs. I feel a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation is in order here.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
After the recent warm spell I have found myself bringing out my trainer socks. As I wear shorts in the warm weather i don't like to wear socks aswell as it isn't a very fashionable look! trainer socks are basically socks, but they aren't as long as normal socks and they sit just below the ankle area and are therefore covered by your trainers and not visible. Before I started using the trainer socks I used to go without socks and my trainers soon began to stink! Also, my feet did rub on the trainers and I suffered from sore feet and blisters. When you wear your shorts the Puma trainer socks are ideal. I paid around £4 for 3 pairs, which is good value for money. I don't need any more than 3 pairs as I don't wear them that often (thanks to the British weather!).
generally with these style of socks you will find them in black or white, I have three white pairs to match the colour of my trainers. The socks have an elasticated opening and on the heel of each sock is the word 'Puma' in black. I love the simplicity of the design of this product, and they have lasted me a long time. The opening of the socks also have extra padding for comfort around the ankles. A lot of other trainer sock brands don't provide this, and they are important for the comfort of the socks.
As they are very well priced they are a must for those wishing to wear shorts this Summer. These Puma trainer socks are made from 65% cotton, 33% polyamide and 2% elastane. Don't go out wearing sports socks when you have shorts on - it isn't a good look at all!
As a big fan of 3/4 jeans, i always tend to buy ankle socks that can be well hidden not to show through your trainers. I tend to visit soccer sport shop quite a bit, as they have many special offers on sports wear, so as i queued up at the counter to pay for my other goods, i noticed a pack of two puma ankle socks for £1.50 they were a variety of colours to chose from, and i picked the pack that consisted of a black pair and a pink pair.
Each sock has a picture of the puma cat on the sides, and the word pma embroidered across the toe of each sock.
These were quite comfortable to wear and without any irritation, the only problem i tend to have that in most shops they only sell a size 4-7 in women's ankle socks, and i am actually a size 8, so i do find that if i am sat down with no trainers on and tend to move my feet around a bit then the sock does slide off, ok now this wont be a problem for most people and i am sure if i shopped around a bit then i probably would find somewhere that catered for a size 8. The socks are well hidden under my trainers when i am wearing my 3/4 jeans, so in my eyes its a job well done, as that is all i ever really wanted from them.
Well so far i have had these about a month or so and there are no holes in any of the pairs yet, although i would not recommend walking about with no slippers on in the pink pair, as i did and the dirt is really easily picked up and will not wash out, for obvious reasons the black pair remain ok.
My overall opinion
I would recommend these to buy, as they are comfortable, and seem very durable, although i am sure you could get more pairs for the same price, but would they really last as long, the only downside i can find is the sizing, as i could only get up to a size 7, but i would definatly buy some more pairs the next time i am in soccer sport.
