I bought these socks after reading some of the great reviews but thought an honest one would help.
first 4 pairs of socks for £14 is good value i have no complaints, but be aware the item describes shin protection, cushioning and extra warmth. None of those descriptions are technically wrong, but any long sock can claim this property. What you actually get with these socks is long soft socks with different colored parts, i.e the patch on the shin is just a different colour and not extra padding the same goes for the bottom of the sock. So if like me you were looking for something specifically to cushion your shin and foot against a ski boot look elsewhere.
