Warm but sweaty feet
on January 27, 2014
First, I wanted to share what these socks are made of, since it's missing from the description: 70% Merino wool, 18% nylon, 10% polyester, and 2% spandex. Care instructions: Turn inside out. Machine wash warm. Tumble dry low.
As to the size, the size medium states it fits men's shoe size 6-9 and ladies' shoe size 4-9. I normally wear a women's size 9W, and these socks are just a little loose on me. I haven't washed them yet, so maybe they shrink a little and they'll be perfect.
Performance wise, these socks keep my feet nice and warm. I get cold feet quickly and have been freezing my toes off this winter, until I got these socks. The inside of the socks looks like a towel (little fabric loops) and cushions real well. The little fabric loops also trap body heat and keep you warm. The only thing bad I noticed so far, when I take my shoes off, I feel like the socks are damp, but I don't know if that's because my shoes don't breathe too well, or if the socks don't wick moisture as well as they should.
The socks are not the most attractive, but they actually don't look too bad, and who's going to see them anyway when you're wearing boots!
