I'm not paying $17 for a pair of actual DL socks, so please don't post up links or suggest that I get the real ones.
Most of the time I just lift in regular workout pants so I don't have to deal with socks, but I thought it would be nice to switch it up this summer.
On that note, I searched through a could previous DL sock threads and came to the conclusion that there are three main alternatives to actual DL socks people are using: soccer socks, baseball socks, and regular knee socks.
My question is, out of those which do you think is the the best bang for the buck? I'm interested in protection (obvious) and not having to pull them up every time I start walking.
