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 socks are well made, and fit well - no lumpy toes. They are just the right weight to comfort my tender feet, but not thick like boot socks. The only drawback is the wide elastic inside the cuff. It invariably causes deep indentations in my ankles, cutting off circulation and causing my feet to swell. I have medical issues that causes a tendency toward this problem. I am sure most people would be happy with them, The colors are fun and cheerful. They go through the laundry looking like new. The colors have stayed bright even after several washings. If you wear shoes bigger than 8.5 you might find them too snug, or not quite able to fit as securely over the heel as you would prefer.
I do like these socks. They are very pretty and comfortable and warm. not a heavy knit, a fairly light weight for a wool sock. I washed one pair to see if they would shrink because they are made of merino wool, but they did not. So that was good, because washing socks by hand is not convenient. HOWEVER, here is the heads up: I have average width feet, and wear a size 8 shoe. These socks pull over the heel very snug. If you do not have an average width foot or if your shoe size is even one size larger that an 8 I would not advise ordering these as you may not be able to get them on, Also, there is a disclaimer the company has put on amazon stating they DO accept returns, so apparently some reviewers don't know this as they stated they could not return these. I will be keeping mine as I see no problem with them. It would have been nice if they had either made them a bit larger at the top of the cuff because that is where you really have to stretch them to the max to get them over the heel. Or at least made two sizes to choose from.
this was a gift; my mom has larger wide feet; she struggles with finding a sock that fits and is comfortable. She highly praised this sock as comfortable, a good fit, and even went so far as to ask if I had them custom made just for her. Would definitely buy again! Bright colors of large variety so she can pick a pair based upon her outfit for the day.
I love these socks!! I got them for Christmas and wear a pair almost every day. We live in SD and the winters are cold! I wouldn't say they are thick socks. They are a bit thicker than 'normal' socks but not as thick as woolen socks you buy say, in sporting goods department. I can wear these in normal shoes. They are not a tall sock. I love the colors and patterns. I gave 4 stars because they do pill a bit on the surface that contacts the shoe, but it is not bad. Other than that I think they wear well. I will most likely buy them again as 5 pairs do not take me all the way to laundry day!
I was looking forward to these socks, they feel great on look great on outside, however I return the socks due to the excessive threadings on inside of socks. If that type of threading doesn't bother you then the socks will work for you. Due to nerve sensitivity in my feet, excessive threads are not comfortable. I wish all the sock companies would post a picture of the inside of the sock along with the outside.
These really are wool socks and look exactly as they are pictured. The color collection I bought are bright and colorful, exactly what I wanted for leggings and booties. They look better than I expected. My only disappointment comes from all the hanging threads on the insides of the socks (see picture), but considering its a package of 4 wool socks for $9 that are otherwise perfect, it's inconsequential. Let's see what happens to them after washing.
