I have been buying Docker Crew socks for many years. They always fit well and held up to the daily pounding. I purchased a 6-pack of the new variety last month, and I couldn't be more disappointed. They have significantly reduced the quality of the socks. I held a pair of the old ones and the new ones together and could immediately tell that they had wiped out the old quality. I did a test on them by placing one of the old socks on my postage scale and it weighed 2.9oz. (After a year of use) Then I put the new style on the scale and it weighed 1.9oz. That's over 35% reduction in the amount of material that they are using. I also looked closely at the socks after the first time that I wore them and noticed that they were already frizzing at the ends of the toes. To add insult to injury, the price has also gone up from a year ago, so they're selling us less sock for more money.
Because of the lack of material, they put an elastic squeeze part in the middle of the sock to try to keep it on your foot. It doesn't work very well. I often wear 2 pair of sock with my work boots. Whenever I wear one of these new pair of socks, they always bunch up inside, and then they fall off my foot when I remove the outer sock. Neither of these problems ever occurred before they changed them.
Would love to find a bunch of the old kind, but they seem to not be made anymore. I'm sure some Docker VP is patting himself on the back for making cheaper socks and charging more for them, but he isn't ever going to get my money again...

I had been buying another brand of socks for a number of years, but there was something (that I won't go into here) about them that I did not like. So I decided to try a pair of Dockers socks. I bought two 6-packs of Dockers socks. I LOVED THEM!!!! I was fully convinced these were the socks I would buy forever - or until they were no longer available. So after a while I went out and bought some more. But the new ones were different. They had this 'arch support' thing that another reviewer referred to as the 'stretchy band'. It is a band of tighter elastic that is intended to support the arch of the foot. I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS ARCH SUPPORT FEATURE. IT STRANGLES MY FEET. When I took my socks off after wearing them all day I had impressions from the socks in my skin. Why would I want to wear a vice squeezing my foot all day long. Okay, okay, I'm exaggerating a little bit; just having a little fun. But I am just so irritated about this feature. Maybe for some people, this is a good thing. But for me, with no foot problems at all, I not only do not need this feature, but, in the words of the Grinch, I utterly loathe it.

I loved the Dockers socks WITHOUT the arch support feature. But this arch support thing is torture to my feet. If someone can tell me where to find the other types of Dockers socks WITHOUT the 'arch support', 'stretchy band' thing, it would be greatly appreciated.

By the way, I wear a size 9 shoe - just so no one thinks the problem is that I have enormous feet.

My confession: I have only reviewed 2 products, and both have been negative (one star). I guess it's because I feel very strongly about it. However, in both cases, I fully applauded the product before a change in the product occurred. But the change was an absolute deal killer for me. In the case of the Dockers, maybe the socks without the 'arch support' feature are still available and I just am unable to locate them. I hope that is the case because I would give them a 5 star rating.

Like many people, I bought these because I've had good luck with Dockers socks in the past. Not this time! These are very flimsy, and although some of the description says "cotton", the truth is lower down: "cotton/polyester blend".

I've given them 2 stars instead of 1, because I recently went on a trip and the socks' extreme flimsiness made them easier to pack and wash on the road. But overall I won't buy these again. If you are used to the older, thick cotton Dockers socks, be warned!

Not like the old version of the same socks. The originals were thick and tight. These are huge, thin, shapeless.

I love this brand of socks. My feet are a size 7 1/2 and most brands I've tried,the heel of the sock ends up sticking out the back of my shoes because they also fit a size 12. Well, these ones conform to my smaller feet much better. This issue doesn't happen. Theres a stretchy band that runs around the arch area that holds the socks in place while putting shoes on. Plus they are very comfortable and keep my feet dry. Highly recommended.

My husband had purchased Dockers Crew socks in the past. They were a great quality, cushiony and comfy. These are nowhere near the quality of what they used to be. These are so thin, so cheap, he put a hole in one just putting it on. Don't waste your money on these.

I have owned these type of Dockers Athletic Socks before and they are awesome for there intended use. I wear them to work where I have to switch between casual slip on shoes and work boots. These fit tight enough that they do not slip around on the foot and stay in place with boots and shoes. This also makes them very durable and long lasting. I have seen several reviews where people were worried with quality with different versions of Dockers socks. I believe they are using the wrong style sock. I have destroyed multiple casual or dress wear socks at work before finding these. Note that I wouldn't use these for casual wear because they are too tight and not as comfortable as the Cushion Comfort style.

Update Jan 2015: I'm actually am a little disappointed in the quality. The first pack I bought lasted a long time but latest purchase did not last a year. They all generated a hole a little below where your ankle bone is located where the sock transitions from the vertical stitch to the horizontal foot stitch. I hope it was just a bad batch.

These socks are thin and cheap. Won't last long. Save your money and buy better socks. Had bought this brand a few years ago and they were much better then. Have since bought some of the gold-toe brand socks and have been pleased after 6 months of wearing.

I am a fan of Dockers slacks, but the quality of their socks, these in particular, is awful. The amount of lint these socks release is astronomical!! One would think that after being washed and dried at least a couple of times the problem would be corrected, but no. It's as if they come with invisible black bunnies that reproduce like the end of the world is upon us. If I had the skills I'd probably would have been able to accumulate enough lint from the twelve pairs I own and made a pair of slacks. Unbelievable!! They are great to wear to that OCD, clean freak's home who requires us to take off our shoes upon entering the house... yeah... walk in... take off the socks, turn them inside out and shake... it'll be as if its raining black cotton.
