Review: I have big feet (size 11 women’s), live in an area that has a cold winter and am always on the lookout for a good pair of socks. I generally want a pretty heavy sock to keep my feet warm when wearing boots or my tennis shoes. When I saw these socks up for review, I knew I needed to give them a try.
The socks came well packaged bundled together in a plastic bag and then each pair individually pinned together, just as socks usually are in any store. I had no problems unpackaging the socks, as you can sometimes have with those plastic thingies.
I wanted to give this product a fair review, so I wore the socks several times and washed them multiple times as well before writing this. I’ll admit when I first got the socks and started checking them out, I turned them inside out. When I did that, I saw massive amounts of strings criss-crossing on the inside of the sock. If you’ve ever done any sort of needlework and have looked at the backside of that project, you can picture what the inside of the sock looks like. I understand that it’s necessary due to the pattern on the outside of the sock, but I was worried that these strings would snap or loosen and snag on my toes when putting on the socks. After several wearings and washings, I’ve not had any problems yet, but it’s still in the back of my mind.
All that said, the socks fit my big feet pretty darn well. They don’t feel too tight or small. In fact, a problem I have with a lot of my socks is that they’ll start to slide off my feet when I’m wearing my snow boots and I didn’t have this problem with these socks. They’re warm, yet not so thick that they’re uncomfortable when wearing shoes or boots.
All in all, I’ve been pleased with these socks and might have to pick up another set. The colors in this set (black, brown, blue, red and purple) cover most of my needs, but I would love to see more color options with this pattern.
