4 Pairs of Cotton Rich Sports Socks
Not up to par
M&S socks used to be jolly good and I seldom wore other makes. However, like other items of their clothing, the socks don't seem to be up to the usual standard.
Luckily, I bought a larger size than I normally would, after reading a few reviews. I'm glad I did, as there is NO way my normal size would have fitted. These are at the VERY lowest end of their advertised size (8 to 9.5), barley fitting me.
They are also much shorter than a normal short sock. If this is what is meant by "Sports" socks I wish it had been made clearer! The material is coarser than usual and not comfortable.
The only thing in their favour was the price of £6 for 4 pairs!

All the menfolk in my family love getting these socks.

not changed for the better.
I have bought the original sports socks for many years and apart from a shrinkage problem I have been very happy with them. On going to get more pairs recently, I find that they have been replaced with a very inferior product. They are nothing like the quality, thickness and fit of the old product. Please re instate the old design and with new colours and designs...they were excellent.

A little disappointed
Buying things on line can make it a bit of a lottery,which is what I 've found with this product.
In my experience sports socks are usually thicker than these, which led to the review title.
Otherwise they are ok, a reasonable fit, but I'm uncertain of how long they will last.
Time will tell!
