To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These used to be the best socks, worth the money. Now they're just the same polyester merino mix as all the rest. Dunno when they changed them, but mine from a couple of years ago are the absolute perfect socks. These are meh. Fine. A bit expensive for what they are. I was searching for the old darn tough socks and these are just not it. Sad face.
While traveling I only had light socks and my feet were cold. I went into a sports wear store and boy a pair of padded socks from you're L for only $10. Unfortunately, Amazon does not sell them so I buoyed the Sox at twice the price expecting them to be really warm. It was only 30° out and I wore the socks and my feet were cold. It was a disappointment.
I think it's just me, since the guys I work with didn't report having the same issue, but if I run in these socks I get blisters on the bottom of the ball of my feet and my big toe. No problems hiking in them though! And they look cool. Plus I like representing New England companies!
