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 analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought five pairs to be used for exercising and everyday use - the high rating (which I now don't believe) was why I purchased the five pair. They arrived the other day - I quickly took them out of the box and took the packaging apart - put one pair on my feet and the other four pair in my drawer. I was ready to tackle the world with my new socks. WHAT A MISTAKE! Even more so for taking the packing apart and not saving anything (under the belief that these would be the perfect socks: NOPE! Either running with them - walking with them - standing with them - they kept slipping - so every five minutes I felt myself reaching down to pull them up - if I didn't do that they would slip beyond my ankles. I would love to see if I am contacted by this company and have them do the right thing: let me return the socks and refund my money. TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED!
These are my favorite socks for everything. They are not too thick that it makes my shoes tight, but not so thin like some running socks that don't feel like you are wearing anything. The ribbing around the heel area is very nice and well designed for comfort and preventing slippage.
