I wanted to love these. It is so hard to find nice cushioned socks in this style. However, these socks just don't fit right. I think if I had bigger feet, they'd be great, but I am a size 6 and the socks leave a weird little flap of fabric at the heel, retaining the shape of the cardboard they came on. I was hoping they would shrink up a bit and lose the weird shape after a few washes, but it is still there after being washed and dried multiple times. This little bit of fabric bunches up when wearing shoes and gets underfoot when just walking around. If I stretch them at the toe, that part goes away, so I think a bigger foot would be fine. But for me, they just don't work :( Disappointed and not recommended for anyone size 6 or under, despite it saying fits size 5-8.5.
