3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but buy big 18 Oct 2010
Colour Name:Navy|Size Name:9-11.5 Mens
I walk a couple of miles to and from work each day and bought these to stop my new shoes rubbing my feet raw. The silky smooth inner layer works great against the feet and certainly no blisters so far. My only criticism is that they shrink badly when washed. I had already read a review warning me of this, and so hand washed them the first few times. They have still shrunk to a size where they no longer really fit. Wish I had bought one size larger than I normally would.

1.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH DONT BUY 18 Dec 2013
By DAN
I bought these to walk a marathon in (moonwalk) out of the 4 people doing this i was the only person who had these on, I was also the only person who had Blisters so bad that i had to hobble the last 2-3 miles, (the shoes i wore were specially fitted and i had proper heat molded insoles which i had tried out quite a few times to make sure they wouldn't hurt....wish i had done the same with the socks.

I took pictures of the underside of my feet which had turned into 2 huge blisters, whilst the company agreed if i sent them back i would get a refund, It was more hastle than it's worth, I would rather pass on my feedback to other consumers in this review.

If you are preparing for very long walks :

Wear 2 pairs of thin socks instead,Or one pair of thin socks first and thicker on second. does the same thing, make sure they have no seams.

Try out Shoes, socks, leggings, cycling shorts on longer walks before the long walk, take food or sugar tablets to keep up energy, take water regulaly (if your thirsty your already dehydrated!).

Baggy tracksuit bottoms or trousers with a low crytch usually cuts in or makes tops of thighs rub.

Take a pot of Vascoline or running lube as a must incase of rubbing!, plasters would be good as well for a quick fix to a rubbing ankle.

I am sure others have much more experience but Hope if you have read it helps with your descision.

4.0 out of 5 stars Walking socks 14 Nov 2012
By missba
Colour Name:Charcoal| Size Name:Large (9-11.5)|Verified Purchase
I bought these socks to wear with walking boots, as I do a lot of long dog walks. I read the other reviewer's comments about how small made the socks are and I did order up a larger size. How right he was, the socks are very small made. I am usually a size 7, but ordered the 9-11.5 size and they just fit.
I have worn them every day and hand washed them every night for the last 4 days. So far no shrinkage. Very warm without being bulky. Comfortable to wear, no wrinkling of the inner sock, just a bit short in length for my taste. However this wont stop me ordering another pair.
