What others are saying
Of all the online retailers that offer the Tilos Sport Skin Socks, amazon.com has the most current verified buyer reviews. The majority of the reviews are 5 out of 5 stars, which makes up more than half of the nearly 200 reviews. While most reviews are positive, the critical reviews offer valuable insights. The pros and cons below summarize most of the opinions expressed in these reviews.
Nearly all the four and five star reviews mention Tilos Sport Skin Socks as being durable, comfortable, and lightweight. One reviewer noted that the socks were great for both hot and cold temperatures and where the sand was of inferior quality. Other reviewers also found that they were thick enough to protect feet without feeling too cumbersome or too hot. While many of the reviews were focused on sand volleyball, some buyers reported using the socks for sand soccer, snorkeling, and wading in tide pools.
The majority of the one and two starred reviews consisted of buyers citing issues with thinness and sizing. Skin Socks were either too big, too small or too narrow. A sand volleyball player stated that their feet still developed blisters from hot sand even with these socks on the whole time. Sand eventually creeping in to the sock was another common complaint. A windsurfer noted that there was no grip on the underside of these socks. Durability was another issue. Holes after only a few weeks using the socks on sand was the primary reason for another user’s thumbs down recommendation. The most disconcerting critique of the Tilos Skin Socks was the apparent no returns policy for this product highlighted by several reviewers who tried to return the socks. This may be the policy of 3rd party sellers on amazon.com. The official Tilos website has a warranty section that specifies a “30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee” for all their products.
When outdoor conditions are unfavorable, Tilos Sport Skin Socks can help bring comfort, protection and flexibility to a wide range of water and beach activities.
