Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
As described by other customers, these socks are soft, warm, comfortable on the sole and nicely padded for boots. Unfortunately, I had to take a star off, because I have athletic calves, and these just don’t stretch enough. I wear them folded/rolled. Shame...more stretch would’ve made them perfect.
Although they aren't especially thick compare with my current Timberland 50% wool socks, but with 80% ++ wool, they are actually warmer than the current ones I have been wearing for years. They are extremely comfortable, dry and fit but not too tight. I am giving it a 99.99% for its quality and 100% for value for money. It is a Must Buy!
