CLEAR WINNER - This is the one you want to buy!
on April 15, 2016
When purchasing socks in 4/2016, I was looking for the ultimate, cushy, mainly cotton, black socks. The description and reviews on many brands was confusing... so I purchased the four different brands below. Here is my review and comparison:
1. WINNER - Gold Toe Uptown Crew - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00372SV7W
These socks are the clear winner. It appears they were made in the USA, but did not specifically state so. These were the heaviest, cushiest, warmest of the group. I bought more and highly recommend them.
2. GAVILA FANCY BOX - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01943KB5C
These were very similar to the #1 above... exactly the same size but a little less weight. They were made in China and came in a black fancy box that would be nice for Christmas. If you want a sock that is not as thick and warm as #1, then you may be very happy with this brand.
3. FRUIT OF THE LOOM - OVERPRICED POOR 3RD - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BTUQ210
Less weight, smaller size and more stretchy... feels cheap by comparison. You are much better off buying #1 or #2.
4. HANES ULTIMATE (not) X-Temp - TOTAL BUST- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FBD2GYY
There is nothing "ultimate" about this sock... tiny, stretchy, flimsy, cheap... this lightweight sock would only be loved by a bean counter at Hanes. Don't believe a bit of the product description on this over-hyped sock.
