I am a huge fan of the Thorlo's by experia. Many years ago I tried the regular thorlo's and while they offered great protection they were just to thick and created a weird feel when wearing them on the court. However these socks offer the best of both worlds. The padding that thorlo offers where it's needed and the spandex everywhere else so you don't feel like you are cramming a king size pillow into a queen pillow case. They are a little pricey but we'll worth the extra money when considering the protection and comfort they offer. I play at least 3 times a week and these are essential tennis attire for me. I own 20 pairs and just rotate them so they don't wear out (very durable too). I would highly recommend giving a pair a try you won't regret it.
