I appreciate the pure 100% organic cotton. I loved the soft feel on my foot but know they are a generous size, not true fit. They also don’t have any synthetic elastic, so they instantly slouch down your calf to your ankle. The only way they look presentable with shoes is to fold them down. I will buy them again. I have the right expectation now.
When I looked at the socks, I thought they were a little big for me. I washed them and they fit fine.
Finally these come in black too! They feel so soft, but the fit is not as good as some of your socks and you were out of my size, so I'm hoping they shrink.
I own three pairs and plan to buy more. But realize that these socks are not for everyone. 100% socks do not hug your feet the same way that socks made with synthetic textiles do. I don't mind that. But some people might. Also when you have socks that don't contain a more resilient fabric like nylon, they wear out faster. Remember how grandma used to "darn" holes in socks. That's a handy skill to have if you decide to wear 100% cotton socks. I'm not saying these socks are not well made, they are incredibly well made. I'm just saying that's the nature of the material. So I make it a point to not walk around in my socks much, but try to wear slippers with my socks so they last longer. Ultimately, I love these socks and plan on having a whole draw of them because I'm on a zero-waste kick, and want to have all my clothing be made from natural materials that are compostable. Plus they're soft and comfy. I would definitely recommend buying a size smaller than what the chart recommends or they will just be saggy and too big.
I wear a size 10 shoe, so I bought a medium size sock (per the instructions on the sizing chart). It's way too big. I've even tried washing it in warm water, drying them in the dryer to shrink them. Part of the problem may be that I have very narrow slender feet and dainty ankles. So the socks maybe the right size length-wise, but width-wise they're too big. The material is great though, I might try buying again, but this time I'd purchase a smaller size.
If you have sensitive feet or have allergies, these are the best socks you can find. They are long lasting and are very comfortable to wear all day.
I am loving all the socks I bought.
I have numerous allergies and usually wake up with swollen ankles. Turns out I was reacting to my "sleeping socks" so I ordered these and hoped for the best. They are really comfortable and best of all, I'm not allergic to them!
