I really loved these socks when they came they are the perfect length and very comfortable and nice colours. However after a few wears the stitching around the coloured parts on the toe started coming apart. Very disappointing.
The heels and toes wore out on all after just a few wears and they now all have holes in them. was disappointing as I’ve been searching for good knee highs for a while. The upper part was snug and warm- it’s too bad the toes and heels weren’t more resistant to wear.
The "Lovely Annie Women's Knee High Cotton Socks" are ok but had I purchased at a box and mortar venue would have returned, or probably wouldn't have bought in the first place. They fit fine and stay in place (I wear 8 1/2-9 shoe and weigh 155--so more or less "average"), but the quality is poor. I thought after a washing they would soften up, but they do not. In its favor, the sock did NOT shrink after washer/dryer, but still did not soften even with fabric softener in both the wash and dry cycle. The fabric is thin, but thick enough to be categorized as a sock I guess. The colors are muted, which I like, but also have speckles, which I do not care for. Bottom line perhaps you get what you pay for? These come individually packaged in a much nicer quality wrapping than the product they enclose.
These socks are nice on the legs, but the feet are very large and thin. They will not hold up in the long run because the bottoms of the feet are too thin. Also, I have very wide feet but these socks are too wide for me, which is odd. The stitching on top of the toes is also very thick and annoying as it slides around because the socks are so loose. Wanted to like them, but no.
Ok, they came on time, nicely packaged, however, I found these to be scratchy and uncomfortable....they were thicker than expected, the toe seams are too thick, knotty and uncomfortable, and the material itself is scratchy....now, that being said, I am very sensitive to uncomfortable fabrics, for this reason, I hesitate to buy clothes online unless I’m familiar with the material....so, I probably won’t be buying anymore socks online.
This is a really-order. The first order was perfect. This order the calf is not as big as first order. Disappointed. The first order fit so nice and felt so good. It’s so hard to find socks for big calves !
Ok, first, yes, these socks look gorgeous, and they feel nice.
But, I wish I'd known, before I ordered them, that despite what the description above says, the care instructions that actually are *on the socks* say to *hand wash them only*, or put them in a lingerie bag.
Not only that, they also say that they are handmade - wonder how they can be so inexpensive for being handmade? They are handmade in China. Draw your own conclusions as to the conditions in which they are being handmade. :-(
If you don't care about either of the above, by all means order them, as they are nice socks. But at least now you know.
UPDATE: After writing this review, I received another package of different socks from another company, and *those* socks are FANTASTIC! They feel *sooo* good on, and they are waaaay less expensive too! (Only $10 for 6!). These are them:
