I know socks, who cares? But these socks are truly amazing. They have a elastic band across the instep and arch that gives solid support. The cut is athletic and they don't extend to far up the ankle. The wear well and absorb any moisture.
The socks are of good quality and they fit like compression socks, but without the discomfort. Unknowingly, my son begain to march better in his High School Marching band. The band is on their feet practicing for 5-7 hours on weekends and 3 hours in the evenings after school at times. He said that they were awesome! I'm purchasing more for him.
Only one con, my child is 12 in HS with a very large size foot - size 14. The Extra Large still wasn't quite spacy enough, but it was an ankle sock anyway, so it didn't matter.
Variety is the spice of life and wearing the same brand of socks, in black, for years and years feels like the complete opposite of that. I haven't tried nearly every other sock out there, but I can't help coming back because nothing else has measured up in this price range. They are pretty tight, which is not for everyone I'm told - though I don't get why, who wants their socks to be loose... The cushion is the only real significant step forward these have made in years. They hold their shape and color better per wash than any other sock I've tried, some of which were triple the price. They also retain their "anti-smelliness" properties better per wash. They don't look super cool but their appearance degrades similarly slow per wash. What more do you want from socks...
With size 14 feet, finding good socks at a decent price is always a challenge. So I was quite surprised to see these on Amazon...3 pairs for under $10!!! Fit is perfect; soft, well cushioned, medium thickness, have not lost elasticity.
I bought the 10 size they sent me the 12 size. I panicked washed and dried on high and now they fit like they should for my boyfriend. I will say I did try them on and holy soft. They do hug around the ankles so if you don’t like socks that hug your ankles I wouldn’t recommend.
They are not heavy socks, more of mid-weight. But nice. They feel good on feet, but we never can get socks for very long feet that are loose enough but still have enough stretch. (husband wears 13-14 and for him although he is not diabetic, they are too tight for his taste) They almost feel like compression socks to me. They are so snug. And since I have large 10.5 WW feet, I liked the larger (don't remember what size- but 11 to 15 or something like that. They are better for me, and snug up so that nothing was too long.
Still my favorite socks. I’ve tried numerous brands but none have the thickness and comfort that these do, while also not getting hot either. They are definitely a little pricey for a pack of 3 but the quality is excellent.
