To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These used to be the best socks, worth the money. Now they're just the same polyester merino mix as all the rest. Dunno when they changed them, but mine from a couple of years ago are the absolute perfect socks. These are meh. Fine. A bit expensive for what they are. I was searching for the old darn tough socks and these are just not it. Sad face.
These socks would be PERFECT if they were not too small. The description says "true to size" so I ordered my regular size - backed up by the size chart. I definitely did not want too big for my walking shoe. But, unfortunately, too small means they're just not quite long enough to fit over on my heel, and therefore they creep down when I walk, wrinkling uncomfortably under foot. If they fit, I would give them 5 STARS because of the tight knit and comfortable styling.
I was planning a trip to Montana with lots of hiking. Had gone on a hike in Minnesota to prep and got some bad blisters. I was worried about my hiking in Montana after getting such bad blisters so bought these socks. I still had the bad blisters but these socks were AMAZING! My feet had no issues, no added wear on the existing blisters and no new blisters. From now on I will always wear these on hikes. I was worried about them being too warm. They were not at all. Buy them now! Don’t hesitate. Do it.
I love how perfectly snug and warm these socks are. They aren't like my other wool socks that slip and slide in my shoes. Also, the amount of cushion is great and comfortable. These are very warm that I had to take them off at work. The color is cute too, I got the blue, but would like them in solid colors as well.
I've had this brand before and have absolutely no complaints!
I bought these for a trip to New Zealand during their early winter to use while hiking. These socks were perfect - comfortable, breathable, and not slipping. The weather was rainy, and my shoes and socks were often wet, but these dried fast and didn't cause any rubbing. I'm definitely getting more!
Used this with new Merrell hiking shoes to a moderate climb up Shenandoah national park. It was comfortable, held up well, and feet stayed dry. I thought it was pricey but for something that was high quality and performed as it should, I don't mind it.
