Excellent for warmth and comfort, though not very hard wearing
on 3 March 2013
Very comfortable and extremely warm but quickly developed holes around the seams.
Used these socks to do 'Tough Guy 2013' and for keeping your feet warm they are absolutely amazing!! While everyone else I did it with had numb feet my feet remained warm for virtually the whole time, only getting cold for a few seconds after going into icy water before the water in the socks warmed up. The socks were also very comfortable, Tough Guy is a 10mile running and obstacle event and seams did not rub at any point.
Before I bought these I noticed other reviews have mentioned sizing being inaccurate, I'm a size 8 and bought the sock size recommended for size 8 and they fitted well.
The only problem with them I would say is that after using them for tough guy I noticed they had got holes in both toes at the seam. Obviously this is not the kind of event they are intended for so this would normally be less of a problem but thought this may reflect that they might not last that long generally. The holes are around the seams though so they should be possible to repair but I haven't attempted this yet.
