Because my shoe size is 6 narrow, I have a hard time finding shoes to fit. So I try to buy thicker socks to make my shoes fit better. These are advertised as "thick cushion" which could not be further from the truth. These are so thin, I think I could read the paper through them. The grips at the heel also do not work as they keep sliding off my foot. I have a very small foot and these are even a bit small for me. Waited a month to get them from China! Don't waste your money!!
Bought these to work with my slip on Sketchers. Ankle socks show no matter what. Even if they said “no show”. These 100% do not show! Which is exactly what I wanted, however I wear a size 7 1/2 and the socks are huge! You cant pick your size so I assumed it was one size fits all ( stretches ). I washed them and they shrank a little but when I put them on with my shoe it bunches at the heel a lot it pops out the shoe like a muffin top! I am tucking the sock back into the shoe and hoping it wont slip down or be uncomfortable but they don’t show which is what I wanted so I am dealing with it. I would have give five stars if it wasn’t for them being so big.
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. UPDATE: I hate these socks. :( After many many washings, they still have the weird little flap of extra fabric on the heel. They come off every time I take my shoes off and slide down when walking. Very unhappy with them.
The socks are thick, soft, nice material BUT the heel is too generous. I ordered the large & have size 11 feet. I washed in HOT water & put in high heat dryer TWICE but the heel is just too bulky. It just bunches up on top of the back of whatever shoe I wear. Such a pain to have to adjust & tuck-in and wiggle. I have the large end of the foot size (9.5-11) so I thought excess fabric wouldn't be an issue, but I was wrong. There is a comparison pic of another type I tried (Vero) and they don't have excess heel fabric. I would not recommend this brand but the "V" brand is very good.
I read customer reviews that wrote about these socks running large. I wear a women's size 9, and ordered the size smaller than I normally would (up to size 8.5.) The socks are a great quality, and the size works perfect for me. When I put my shoes on, the heel fabric bunches up inside the heel of my shoe. It's no big deal to adjust the sock so it fits perfectly inside the shoe. Once I start walking, however, the heel of the sock slips down inside my shoe and bunches up at the arch of my foot, creating a bump, and it's a bit uncomfortable. Going to try to keep working with them to see if I can adjust them above the back of my shoe so the heel grips might do a better job. Hope this helps.
I was so excited when I put these on because they aren't too tight and only cover the parts of your foot where the shoe would be (unlike smaller liners that feel tight by the end of the day). They are a great hybrid between an ankle sock and a shoe liner. Unfortunately, when I tried them with a shoe the heel overflows above the shoe leaving an extra bunch of fabric (there are some pictures left by other customers that show this). It's like the sock have a lower and an upper heel. No matter how much I tried to reposition the sock or scoot it down I couldn't get it work without gushing over the shoe. I'm so bummed because I really liked the socks.
I wear a size 8. Even though they looked tiny coming out of the package, they come off my foot Everytime. Fortunately, customer service was awesome and refunded my purchase. Maybe I should have bought the smaller size?
At first the socks are lovely, simple and cute. But after wearing them for some hours the top part in the back starts digging into your skin in a way that just makes it seem as if the sock is to small. But the sock in every other way fits perfectly fine. For some reason the way its made or designed hurts the back of your ankle in a way that makes them unusable.
