Rated 2 out of 5 by Nick0 Returned -- not useful to me.
While the quality of the socks seemed very good, they are two to three times thicker than a standard pair of socks. This would be great if you're using them like chunky slippers or wearing them with shoes a size or more too big, but not for wearing with my regular, appropriately sized shoes. I returned my purchase and intended to shell out for another set of Smartwool socks instead.
(I'm a woman's size 6 shoe and purchased men's style size medium -- they were oversized on my feet, but might have shrunk if I'd washed them.)

I purchased several pairs of these socks for my husband and son to wear this winter with boots. They are very soft and warm and I love all the color combinations

Rated 5 out of 5 by PersonalStyle So warm that I only wore once
I am not an outdoors type so I relied on all my darn toughs for jumping in and out of the car. I sure liked the cozy, cushy feeling on the one outing wearing these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coldincalif Great socks
Good and warm, washed up great, nothing but praise for these socks. Got the combo pair of navy/red and ivory/taupe. They are very very nice. Now have 4 pairs of these socks and would certainly buy more! Great deal, especially when on sale! Thanks for another great item L.L. Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Luckylcs Much too small
I ordered Medium, based on L. L. Bean's recommendations.
I wear a size 8 shoe. Medium is supposed to be appropriate for zip 5-9 shoe.
The socks I received were much too small. I could barely get them on, and the heel does not correspond to my heel.
I am confident that when I launder them (cold/cold, air dry) they will be even smaller
L. L. Bean needs to revisit its sock size chart, and make it count in the real world, not some imagined one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CinCV Finally Warm
I bought these for my husband for Christmas. He always complains his feet are cold, especially at night. Since he has been slipping these on a bedtime he raves about how his feet are finally warm all night long. He is even afraid to wash them as he thinks they might change. I have to sneak them away to the laundry room now and then. He usually turns up his nose at wool because he thinks it is scratchy, but just loves these. Thank you L.L. Bean

These are a steal at $19 and change and my search for quality wool socks is finally over. Love these socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CTBeanFAN1968 These run WAY small
Nice enough socks, although it took three months for them to be in stock. But I wear a woman's size 10 shoe, which should have been the largest in the range for a medium and the smallest in the range for a large, and they were too small. Order a size up.

Warm socks but short - for me not high enough - like short crew sock length

Rated 5 out of 5 by southerncountryboy Best Wool Socks Manufactured
These are state-of-the-art wool socks. They fit true to size; stay in place; are neither too heavy nor too light; just the right warmth; soft and comfortable; perfect for both shoes and boots; wash and dry conveniently; durable; just the right mix of wool/synthetic blend; and have great looking color. There's no reason to shop anywhere else. LLBean makes the best socks!
