Nike Elite Socks

Anyone know where the best deal is to get these? They are $14 at Dicks for one pair. Would like several pair, so would like to get the best deal. Need size 6-8

I saw this deal on slickdeals--Tennis Warehouse has the white ones in a medium for $8.40 I haven't used this website before, so I can't comment on how good they are

I found some right before Thanksgiving I think on Eastbay, 3 pr for $29.99. That was rare though --- they are never on sale, and typically excluded from any in-store sales or discounts.

Heads up on sizing

I have yet to find them on sale anywhere this year but I wanted to give you a heads up on the sizing. Last year my son was a size 6 in boys and I went to countless stores looking for that size and could never find it. I was complaining to another mom and she recommend that I purchase the large because they shrink horribly (I thought she was crazy) but sure enough after buying them and we are now about 6 pairs in, they have all shrunk down considerably and that is with me not putting them in the dryer.

I find the opposite in Nike socks. They are never small enough for me or my son's feet. I can wear his socks and he's 7 years old and I wear a 9 shoe. I buy mine at the Employee Store in Oregon which makes them a great deal but no more since they never fit me right.

My 13 year old son has been wearing these exclusively for 2 years now. You do not normally find them on sale. They are $14 or $15 per pair - which is crazy. I did find them last Christmas for $10 per pair on the Champs website - but have never seen them on sale again.

Another heads up is that the size you are wanting is the absolute hardest to find. Nike doesn't make all of the colors/styles in the size small - we have been looking for the orange/white pair all season, only to find out that Nike only makes it in the larger sizes.

I have to disagree with the previous poster who says they shrink = we probably have 15 pair of size smalls, and none have shrank - and my son has worn some of them for 18 months. I dry them in the dryer every week.

I bought a few pairs at Sports Authority yesterday, each with a 20% off coupon (3 transactions). Luckily, the store was well staffed, and not crowded.

If anyone lives near Famous Footwear, they have buy 1 get 1 half off. I bought my daughter 2 pairs. The regular price is 14.00 so 2 pair for 21.00. I was told the sale will be on until Christmas.

My son wears the size 6-8 socks as well. The best luck we have had is through footlocker.com. The had all the colors in that size and have free shipping. Also if you use viggle you can get a $10 footlocker gift card for 20000 points making the socks less than $5 with free shipping. Hope this helps in the future.
