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!!
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.
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.
These socks are not good at all. I wish I would have listened to other reviewers about the excess material on the heel. No matter what I try, the excess material bunches up in the back and makes these impossible to wear. You end up with a clump of material that sticks out of your shoe in the back. Weird.
Bought to wear with ankle booties and they are way too big in the heel, constantly falling off and bunching up. Already washed so cant return, but a disappointing purchase. I wear a size 9 in most shoes and 9.5 in boots.
