Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisAndMilena Best gift for college kids
My college age son is in the "not wearing cloths my parents buying me" stage and was been for some time. Nevertheless, he wears holes in these socks. I been wearing them for years and buying them for them since he could fit in them. They are very comfortable, warm and great quality. Perfect for kids that stomp are campus in the snow wearing tennis shoe. lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by xcarolineno sock review, it is real.
Who writes a review of socks!? This girl. I am obsessed with these socks. You should have seen the joy on my face when they arrived in the mail. I have an extremely old pair of LLBean Ragg Wool socks that were my mom's (pretty sure I stole them from her, don't say anything), but they had worn straight through the heel. I ordered the two pack of these guys, and even though the shipping was delayed, it was well worth the wait! These are so soft and warm and cozy! I am always freezing in the winter here in NYC and along with the wool leggings from Bean's, my life is much, much toastier. I know some products from Bean's have gone down in quality over the years (can you tell I grew up in Maine?) but these remain true to the real quality LL Bean's name carries! I love these socks and I wish I had a million pairs of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gracistate great quality and so very warm!
These are hands down the best quality and warmest socks I've ever owned. I would not wear this for inside use, but outside use on the farm, they keep my feet warm and dry. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dazy Order up a size
My husband says these are the best ever socks. But I ordered his regular size L for 10.5 shoe size and they are too small. The sock is too short in the foot, the heel area doesn't reach to his heel. He likes them enough to keep them but the next order will be for the XL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seve2125 The perfect sock for Minnesota winters!
I wear these socks nearly everyday in the winter here in Minnesota. They fit great under a pair of Bean boots or even a pair of mocs or boat shoes. High quality wool socks that will last you a long time. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cybele Not enough sock!
I bought many pairs of these socks all in size Extra Large as gifts for my large footed family. I also purchased some in the same size for myself.
They have been cursed by the Lycra fairy! Yes each sock is meant to be stretched from only a few inches long to the size of your foot!
this is tolerable when actively running about, but cramp inducing agony ir you want to relax in a chilly house after exercise.
If these are smushing my modestly size feet, I don't know how the size twelve and up family members even get them on.There is too much tight stretch and not enough wool.
Yes they are wooly, but not mammoth even in extra large!

Rated 2 out of 5 by whoson1st Not what I'd hoped for
I've been using wool ragg socks as my everyday sock, as well as in my workboots, for 40 years. In the last couple of years, it has become increasingly difficult to find wool ragg socks with a heavy, dense weave like I find on my dwindling collection (due to wear and tear) that probably dates back 5 or 6 years. I have now tried 4 brands in recent months (including these from Bean), and they all feature a less-dense weave. I've put them through the wash 3 times now and though they return to shape, they seem to have very weak elasticity--losing their shape on your leg in a matter of hours. They are also not as warm as my older ones. Indeed, when washing a pair of these in a gentle, front-load washer, the loose weave began to unravel on one of the legs of one sock. I darned it to keep it from getting worse. These are not the rugged, tough wool ragg socks I've counted on all these years and am to the point of giving up the search and moving on to other types of socks. I've always liked these, but not in their current form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beansprout best socks ever
I love these socks, have been buying them for years. I wear a size 10 ladies, so i started buying the large, I think I was getting the mediums before, but because they are wool I want to allow for shrinkage. These are the only socks I hang to dry-I love them so much I don't want them to wear out! I have a problem with wool being itchy but these don't bother me at all. Glad I got the longer length this time as well. Works better with boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SamGamgee Feels great, small size
Feels great. Good look. I feel like these are a very good quality.
Not sized as reported.
My shoe size is between a 14 and 15 in men's sizes, so when I saw the size chart for these report 13 to 15 I was very happy to give them a shot. I like the way that they look and the feel of the fabric, but they are not true sized. I would recommend these to most people, but probably not to anyone with a shoe size higher than 13. The outermost curve of the sock heel does not reach the outermost curve of my heel, which I would have expected from a sock sized up to a 15. Instead, the sock is a solid two to two and a half inches short of that.
In short, if your shoe size is at or below a men's 13 then I would recommend these, think about jumping up a size. Men's shoe sizes over 13 should think about another pair of socks.
