Poor Quality Not So Long Socks
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 November 2017
I foolishly allowed a combination of the low price and some of the higher rated reviews to sway my judgement and purchased one pack to try them. I should not have bothered. I can only surmise that either the quality of the socks has changed since those high ratings and comments were given or the purchasers had very differing expectations and requirements, and very lean legs. Yes they are a bit longer than normal but not extra long by any stretch of the imagination, they only just came over my calf. As to stretch yes the socks expand easily but its one way, outward, they have little or no shape retention or hold up capability and continuously fell down within half an hour of putting them on. The socks were warm enough even if a little thin, but I would doubt very much that they will be hard wearing. I will never know as after using once followed by a gentle wash they resemble the shape of my leg and would not stay up, and I cannot even pull them up high enough to use a garter were I so inclined, so I will not be using them again except perhaps as bed socks rolled round my ankles. One star reflects a good price but they are by no means a bargain!
