I have bought some more expensive socks of a similar nature in the past and decided to see what would happen if I tried to save some money. As such, I opted to buy these to keep my feet warm through a couple of months of camping and festivals.
In terms of keeping your feet warm, they are definitely good at that job. They are also comfortable when wearing wellies (which is an impressive feat!).
The one problem is that after a few weeks of use use they stopped stretching and maintaining shape properly far sooner than in similar socks I have purchased in the past. At their price, however, it's still cheaper to buy these twice than the more expensive ones once. As such, I will likely buy some more of these for the next year's camping and festivals.

Arrived before expected which was a bonus considering the Christmas post. These socks are longer than the normal long length mens socks and come right up to the knee. They are thick and soft and the padded sole make them a good choice for wearing inside boots and for any walking sports. Keep your feet very warm. One of the socks had faulty elastic at the top and had to be mended after washing, hence four rather than five stars.

I got these for my dad, they didn't take long to arrive. Fist impression was they felt very cheap, not what i was expecting. Dad didn't like the feel of them at all either, they were a bit big and didn't stay up properly but they were warm.
Overall I wouldn't recommend them to anyone, very cheap quality.

Bought these as I wanted a comfortable 'winter sock' that would be ideal for a high top boot. These socks fit the bill perfectly. They're a reasonably thick wool so are quite warm... and they have a thicker wool base just for the sole so they're very cushioned even with the most basic of insoles. And they're long so they come up just below the knee for me (I'm a 31

These apparently fit UK size 6-11. I've small feet for a man, size 7-8, and find these very tight. I certainly wouldn't like to try squeezing a pair of size 10 feet into them. They also feel very harsh; they're not the wooly socks I'd have hoped for. I suppose it's a case of getting what you pay for.

Very nice socks. I bought them to wear under motorcycle boots. I like the thicker sole on them. Just what I wanted and they stay up once the boot is off. They are sold as size 6 - 11 so they are a tiny bit big for my size 7 feet. But if I put a lighter pair of socks underneath then I guess the little extra room will be needed.

Nice and comfortable and good for the price. Not sure what the padded sole is about as these arrived without that; just normal socks.However, the labels did have NEW on each pair, so maybe the design had changed. If you are looking for a padded sole, perhaps best check with seller before purcahase..

I am an average sized woman with size 6 feet so thought these would fit me well but they are tight on the leg and not as long as I expected. Definitely would not describe them as long length. They look and feel alright but that's it really.
