Far from Heavy Duty but I am pleased
on February 23, 2014
While shopping for these I did note that others did not consider it heavy duty, but I figured it was worth a shot.
While I don't completely regret buying them, I do not feel they are say as thick or as well made as standard tube socks from ten years ago.
What I do think is poorly designed about them though, is the "reinforced" section, specifically for the heel... Well even though I have a foot size that fits best 11.5 - 12 (wide) sneakers / shoes... That "reinforced" heel section is not under my heel. It makes zero contact with the ground when I walk (ok maybe 5% at most). The vast majority of it is on the back of my foot, between the heel and ankle.
I only bought one package to try them out. I don't think I'll be buying anymore.

I have increased my rating from two starts to four, after buying what I thought were the same socks at Walmart for a lower price. Unfortunately it was a situation where the WM SKU was of a different design. The socks were at least 1.5" shorter and had a different wear pattern covering instead the whole bottom of the foot. (Which is actually preferred over this SKU) The shorter nature of it though I do not appreciate, and it makes me appreciate the "standard" HD socks more. Plus they are holding up alright, and it made me think perhaps I rated these too low.
I actually have bought more from Amazon. :)
