I usually buy store brand socks for around £10 for a 5 pack, from any high street clothes store. I didn't see how spending twice as much on a more expensive brand could make my already cosy feet feel much better, but when these were reduced to a more reasonable price of £10 in the black Friday deal I decided to try them. You do not receive a standard sock multi-pack but 4 individual packaged socks and it takes a small amount of time to cut open the piece of thread holding the end of each sock together.
While they did slide on more smoothly than the socks I already own, perhaps due to them being "cotton rich". After wearing them around I literally found myself with cold feet. They are made of thin material and on a cold winters night my feet felt numb and stayed that way for a few minutes after getting inside. If you are looking for a thinner sock for warmer weather then these should be good. I however find my other socks comfortable all year round so I expected a pricier pair to be wearable all year round as well.
