2 Pairs of Cotton Rich Freshfeet™ Argyle Knee High Socks with Silver Technology
Practical socks for autumn
I was looking for some nice normal knee socks - not too thick and not too thin and with natural fibres - can be rather hard to find these days! This come within range of ideal, having a cotton mix, but I don't like the stitching of the Argyll pattern being quite so loose and pronounced on the reverse and they are a little long and slightly tight at the top (but not unwearably so) - I am 5'5" with average length legs. The foot of the sock is on the long size for my size 38.5 feet. I would have liked two pairs of the oatmeal colour way as opposed to this pack of oatmeal and burgundy.

Excellent fit and stay-up
Actually I bought very similar socks in store as a 2-pair set in black and grey. Not finding them again online, I'm happy to have another colour as they are absolutely right for me, staying firm and warm on my legs and fitting well my size 42 slim feet.
My only niggle is one which applies to all socks - the toe seams hurt, catching across the quick of my big toe. Consequently I nearly always have to wear socks inside out and sacrifice the outer design.
Sock makers please re-design! An outside seam on the sock toe will almost never be detected visually.
