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.
Bought for cat lover...it's purrfect. The colours are true to the photo, the socks are cotton and (so I hear) very comfortable.
Two things to know: 1. the washing instructions are in Japanese. After Google-searching the English equivalent, this was what I managed to piece together about the care of the items: turn inside out to wash, hand wash in cool water, wring gently, hang to dry.
Since I have a front-load washer, I made the following care modifications: turn socks inside out, put in wash-bag, cool water on delicate cycle, hang to dry. [Please note that these have only been washed once or twice so far, but they look immaculate, and so I have high hopes].
ALSO, the cats on the heel are too low to actually peek over the edge of most closed-heel shoes...only their ears stick up. It would have been perfect if they had extended a bit more up the back of the ankle, but they are so awesome that they still get 5 stars. Remember that the cat on the toe is hidden in the shoe unless worn without shoes...makes a great conversation piece in homes where shoes are removed at the door. Otherwise, the cats are mostly for the wearer's pleasure.
EDIT: After almost a year of washing & wearing these socks, I confess to now just tossing them into a regular cold wash (no bag, no inside out) and tumble drying them on low. They are still fabulous and I see no difference in them. In the long run, I do think that inside-out-cold-wash-hang-to-dry will keep the colours more vibrant, the socks softer and in better shape, but the added work would need to be weighed by the owner. Since these socks are out on a playground or at track meets, they're getting quite a workout, so I'm not worried about being too careful at this point. They are also very affordable to replace every couple of years. Also, if worn with ballet flats, the cats in the toe area "peek" over the top edge of the shoe and look super-cute.
Design and quality are great but these socks are (at least) two different sizes. I included photos so you can see how different they are. I would say that half of the socks are a size 8 and the other half are size 7. I am a size 9 so only the 8s pretty much fit.
Too cute is the best way to describe these socks. They fit well, are comfortable and soft, and are thin enough to not make shoes fit tight. Even the hubby said "Holy crap, those are adorable!" when he saw the blue and white striped pair on my feet. I love that the cat face is on the toes as well as the heels, though it may have been cuter to have a cat bum and tail instead at the heel. The socks are well made without any loose threads or holes or bulky seams. They arrived in their own separate plastic bag then tucked into a bigger zip-close bag. If intended for giving you will need to remove them from the plastic before wrapping in paper or putting in a gift bag. All were the same size and fit my big ol' size 11 feet nicely. There are knockoffs of this style on Amazon, so beware and make sure you are ordering from Deer Mum and NOT some random seller.
I purchased these socks as a requested gift item for a family member. My set was missing one of the pairs of socks (thus the 4 star rating). Amazon.com customer service did refund me for the one missing pair.
These socks fit as expected. I bought them for a young woman with size 6 feet. They are made from quality materials and are thicker than similar brands she has previously owned.
I may or may not buy them again. Missing pair in package is strange. Did someone along the line help themselves to a pair? We will never know.
I love these socks so much that upon receiving them I ordered another set!! :) They are very well made and soft and have my favorite little animals on them, cats!! :) I wear a size 8 and they fit well, not too big nor too small, just right and feel nice and soft and they are just so cute. The little cat is on the toe and the heel of each sock. In this batch you get six pairs. The colors are vibrant. I am very pleased with my purchase! Thanks to Michele another reviewer who gave an excellent review and answered my question! :) Try them. I think you'll like them too! :)
These are super cute. I bought them for my son's girlfriend and she immediately loved them. They are soft and she likes mix and matching them. I'm rating only 3 stars because the toes in most of them started getting holes within a month. I would have hoped they'd last longer. They're comfortable and fit well. She wears them to work at a Memory Care facility and the residents love seeing which kitty cats she has on each day.
Unlike other reviewers, I received only 5 pairs of socks, 2 pairs said "Deer Mum" on the bottom and these were horrible! They were smaller and inferior quality. Felt like a cotton/polyester mix. Ughhh! Also, the details on the cat's faces were black on dark brown, so you can hardly see them. 3 pairs were packaged nicely with labels that were not Deer Mum. These were real cotton, larger sized, and the detail of the cat's face was done in contrasting colors. If you look at my picture, you will see what I mean. I do not recommend these, unless you are OK paying the price for 3 good pairs of socks, not 5 and not 6.
These are so cute!!! Great to wear with Converse hi-tops--the top of the sock comes to exactly the top of the shoe. I get compliments from my friends all the time. The price is great for 6 pairs, and I've worn these regularly for a few months and there are no holes or rips. The cotton isn't very thick but it still feels like a good quality. They cover my ankle and stop about a centimeter above it. The cat on the heel isn't really visible if you're wearing shoes, but that doesn't matter too much to me. Photos added after 2 months of regular wear.
I got these like... 6 months ago. They are definitely the cutest socks I own. Just seriously adorable. They are comfortable, fit as expected, have lasted many washings, and are just too freaking cute. Some of the colors are a bit weird, but I like weird, so it works. And any time anyone sees them they tell me how cute they are. If you like cats, just get them. They'll make you happy when you look at your feet.
These socks are really cute! They come in many different colors!! The cat's face on the heel is high enough not to be under your foot which is great! I think for only 10 to 11 dollars for 6 pairs of really cute socks are worth it! Just for the heads up the instructions on how to clean the socks are in Japanese so be careful on cleaning them! Over all these are really cute items to buy for yourself or for a present! Bonus points for the socks being really soft and the bag being really cute!
