Keeping in mind that I've only owned these for 3 weeks during the PNW heatwave of 2021: - they are very comfortable, not itchy at all, and nicely cushioned. - they are sturdy. I'm obviously not talking about long term durability after 3 weeks, but I have rather girthy calves and have had wool socks from other brands tear apart when I pull them on, so I've become attentive to that sort of thing. Those don't have that problem at all, I don't feel the need to be careful at all. - I accidentally threw them in the drier on high heat once, no noticeable shrinkage. - they feel quite nice even in (very) hot weather. My feet are still relatively dry after a few hours of walking around in thick leather hiking shoes, and barely smell at all at the end of the day (to be fair, my feet don't usually smell much in those shoes, but these socks make them smell even less) - on the negative side, they don't stay up my calves very long. The wool loosens a bit over the course of the day, and they end up slipping down. Which I can see getting a little annoying in cold weather. I purchased these alongside the Vagden "no ordinary socks" merino socks, and those are much much better at staying up. - another slight negative, they are a bit shorter than I imagined. I'm 6'2" and "knee-high" ends up reaching mid calf for me. Not a huge deal at all, but it might be one of the reasons they don't stay up. Overall I'm very satisfied so far. I bought these for their durability (upon the suggestion from a friend who's had several pairs for over a decade) and I can't gauge that after 3 weeks. But assuming they hold up well over the next 6 months or so, I'll definitely be buying more.
These are VERY warm and toasty wool socks. Ideal for wearing on cold evenings.
Outstanding socks. Wish we had these during GMT in the 80’s.

These socks are wonderful! Exceptionally warm and comfortable. They're also easy to wash (in the machine) and overall, I'm VERY pleased with these socks.
Great quality socks.
Well made. Warm and light. Not quite knee on a six foot man. Good price.
The best company, every sock I have tried, excellant
Same great socks in form and build as my issued olive green pairs when in the Canadian Armed Forces. Happy to put these grey colored ones on as they fit just like the ones the Queen gave us to march around in
Ordered these in grey, and there is a blue band at the top of the cuff. Not like in the picture where the entire sock is grey. One of the socks is unraveling at the cuff. Order more than one pair and the lengths aren't consistent. Some are shorter and some are longer. Runs a bit large.
Workhorse socks for cold weather. Hoping you continue this model (it was sold out for the Black Friday sale).
I use these socks daily, I wear them with a liner, regardless of the time of year or weather. Outdoors, If I am not in sandals then I am in work boots. I have been wearing these ever since we were issued them. I now have my source for replacement when ever they happen to blow a hole - rare but it does happen. They won't stay up all day long but I can't se as thought anything will actually, never cause any irritation though, I wear my boots tied right to the top so the socks stop right there anyway. When wearing long-johns, I find a better fitment to wear the socks next to skin rather than over the leg of the thermals. Anyway - bottom-line, these are great socks - glad to have found the source
The socks do not keep a good fit.
Very comfortable, warm and good quality - the toes have extra plush added.
