I absolutely love these socks. I can't ever seem to find good multi packs in the local stores so I now try to buy them online. These ones are so soft and comfy, and they aren't too small on my husband's size 13 feet. These are well stitched and the designs are really colourful. I like the elastic, which is not too tight or too loose, they have the right amount of hold and my other half has not experienced any discomfort so far.These look like normal socks but as per their description they are thermal and really kept the hobbies toes warm.
