Buyer beware!!!!! Quality control issues expect to replace these!!!!!!
on January 17, 2017
I am changing my review as I have now worn these socks for a week and am having issues!!!!!! Two pairs of the socks are fine, have not had any issues with fuzz or holes, one I have washed, one is going through its first washing tomorrow. However the third pair was defective from the get go!!!!! It started shedding red fluff balls inside and out all over my sister in law's area rug from the get go. Even worse, at least one area of the sock where the shedding was the worst is now showing wear like it is dangerously close to coming apart at the seams!!!!! I avoided cheaper sets of socks because of volumes of complaints about holes appearing from first wearing even with short nails, but I would much rather buy the cheaper sets and get maybe 8 pairs KNOWING I am going to have to replace them rather tham pay $15.99 plus shipping and get a product that while it looks nice, is deceptive. Shame on the manufacturer for trying to dupe consumers making their product seem better when they don't even inspect their work!!!!! I expect items like this to show extreme wear and tear in 3-6 months NOT A WEEK!!!!! Anyone who buys these, know that the adage about you get what you pay for is not always true. Plus, this company deceives people by packing the stuff in a gift box, like that somehow makes them more trusworthy!!!!!! At least now I know what I'm in for when and if I decide to reorder. My advice would be twofold: (A. Buy 2 sets and (B. avoid darker shades. The socks I bought were red and blue and I bet all the darker colors shed and show the same defects I described. Buyer beware!!!!!
