Top critical review
October 12, 2018
They are horrible. They stayed on and did fine on the first wear, but after being washed a second time, every pair in the pack slips with the first couple steps. I can't believe all of the 5 star reviews. There was another kind I purchased over a year ago that had poor reviews and work perfectly. I wanted other colors, but they were no longer available (probably because no one was buying them due to the poor reviews), so I got these with all their 5-star praise. Nope. Won't stay on at all to the point where it's better to be sockless instead of having them bunched up in your shoe.
UPDATE: I will add one star - and one star only - because the company reached out to me after I left the previous one-star review. That part seemed great. Good for them. But... In the initial email - to make it right - I was offered a refund or a replacement. I asked for a refund, to which I received a reply that they can't provide a refund because it was past Amazon's allowable time. Huh?! Fine...replacement. They claimed they discovered the problem, and this new set should be better.
The new set came, and I barely had a chance to wash them before I started getting regular emails (and emails that want to appear personal, but feel computer generated) asking for me to change this to 4 or 5 stars. I don't wear this kind of sock every day, so I have only had a chance to wash them once and wear two different pairs once. The initial set I received was fine on the first wear also, so I have no idea - without being given more time - if they deserve more stars or not. Maybe they did discover the problem and fix it...I have no idea yet.
However, the fact that I was offered a refund only to be told no, and the fact that I still keep getting emails begging for a better rating has turned me off to the whole thing.
