"New", But Certainly Not Improved!
on May 20, 2012
I have worn Hanes cushioned ankle socks for many years, and they have always fit well and comfortably, and have been very durable, even though I frequently wear them around the house without shoes. So when my last batch were beginning to show some wear, I didn't hesitate to order more of the same.
Well, they're not the same at ALL! They're skimpy in size--after laundering, the new socks are 3 to 3-1/2 inches shorter than the older ones. The old version fit very nicely, coming well up onto my ankle. These barely reach the bottom of my ankle bone.
And I do not know how Hanes can use the word "cushioned" with the flimsy thin fabric in these socks.
My feet and I are horribly disappointed in the changes Hanes has made to our favorite socks!
