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 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 thought these were amazing socks when I first bought them, so I ordered a second color. I wore a pair, they were thick, comfortable and the back didn’t slip down! I thought I’d found the holy grail of sneaker socks!! But then, after they were washed, they have lost their elasticity somehow?! The backs slip down after walking for a few minutes and the back of my shoes rub my heels, and I was constantly stopping to pull them back up into place so the rubber sticks them where they are supposed to be... which works for another few minutes... ugh. So now, I’ll continue my search! These aren’t all I hoped they’d be....
These would be great if they weren't so large. I selected the smallest size (W ,5-8.5). This is too great a range...I'm a size 6, and there's a couple of inches of extra material at the heel that sticks out of my shoes. Defeats the "no-show" aspect of the socks. I guess I'll try to return them, or give them to someone who wears a larger size shoe.
I chose these socks because of the rubber strips in the heels. I was disappointed that one white sock did not have any rubber strips in it. Therefore, the sock slipped off my heel in seconds of walking. The socks themselves are well made. Out of the five pair in the package, I would have used the white pair the most. I am disappointed because of the defect, hence the lower star rating.
