An improvement over regular cotton socks
on August 19, 2013
It's surprising how hard it is to find moisture socks that will extend over the ankle. The vast majority of them are only concerned about the bottoms of your feet. These barely fit over the ankle (I'm size 9), but are better than the booties that don't cover the achilles tendon at all. I have problematic dry skin all over my feet, so these were the best I could do. The fit is a little loose, but I don't mind. Sometimes they stay on overnight and sometimes they fall off. The material is thin, but seem to retain moisture longer than cotton. When I first received them I washed and air dried them. They took a lot longer to dry than I expected. They do seem to help keep the moisturizing lotion in longer, but not as long as I'd hoped. It is an improvement over standard cotton socks, yet they are a breathable material so you're not holding in sweat.
Regarding the seams - there's one seam across the heel and one at the toes. They don't bother me because I don't go exercising in them or anything. The seams may be a bit thick, but they help with the fit. If a thick seam across the heel might bother you, try the LOVE socks which are shapeless tubes.
