Due to a medical condition I always have ice cold feet in the winter. Even *if* I could get them warm with a heating pad or the like as soon as I move away from the heat source they get ice cold again quickly. One way I found to help with this problem is to wear pure wool slippers or socks but finding the right kind is somewhat tricky especially with socks. Either too tight, too small, too thin, too expensive, too itchy....
These socks are in a word - PERFECT!
I wear a womens 13/mens 11.5 shoe size so I was a little leery when opening the package to see that the XL size looked a little small-ish. Trying them on though they seemed like they were made for me - heel in the right place, no pressure on the toes - just right! The color is slightly darker than what showed on my computer monitor - these are a very rich charcoal gray - beautiful. It may be weird to love socks but I do *LOVE* these socks!
Just the right amount of elastic; I scrunched them down they stayed put; I pulled them up, they stayed put. They do not stretch out and get all baggy like other rag wool socks I have had in the past. They are quite thick and cushy. Not itchy at all. They do not make my feet too warm or sweaty. These are the first socks that I can remember having that I can sleep in. My feet are very happy.
Highly recommended by all twenty warm toes.
