First, these fit as expected. I wear a size 13 steel toe work boot and the thickness of these socks did NOT make my shoes feel any tighter. I should note that I wear standard shoes, so those with wider feet might not share my experience with the fit.
As far as durability, these don't show any signs of wear as of yet. I work 40 hours a week and my YTD overtime is nearly 140 hours. These socks get put through their paces, and I'm thoroughly impressed with how they've lasted. I expect to get a full year, at least, from 8 pairs. If you're in the skilled trades, you know this isn't the norm.
Washing these socks is a bit of a chore since they shouldn't be tossed in the dryer. We wash them using a mesh garment bag with 5 separate pockets to avoid having to fish them out of the rest of the laundry. This keeps them from getting accidentally tossed in the dryer, where the would certainly shrink due to their composition.
And now for the "overshare" portion of the review: my feet. If you work in a manual labor capacity then you know how skin gets irritated and rashy when subjected to 8 hours of heat and moisture. Multiply that by 5 days a week over several weeks in a row and you can imagine how things can go from "hope this goes away soon" to "I'll gonna have to see a doctor for this!" pretty quickly. It only took about two weeks for any issues I might have had to clear up completely and never return. My feet don't get sweaty, they don't get hot (even when the plant is 80+and humid), and there's no odor. This is the benefit of merino wool.
Overall, I'll be buying these again when the time comes. They are certainly worth the price when it comes to the comfort and condition of your feet.
In sum, an excellent value for surprisingly high quality, comfortable, easy care (washer and dryer safe), warm but not claustrophobic winter socks.
