I purchased 2 pair of the Cresta , Cayenne socks on line and received them in 5 days.
When I tried them on, My toes poked holes in the upper toe area of the socks.
They were poorly made and were so thin that I could put my fingers through the fabric.
I returned them to King of Prussia and got a refund.
I've been buying for many years and have NEVER received any item so poorly put together.
I hope you will correct this defect on future socks.

Good socks overall. I wish there was more reenforcing in the heel. I have several pair that have holes in the heel but otherwise still in good condition.

I found these socks to be just ok. Hoping they stand the test of time. Was not exactly sure what to expect.

most comfortable socks I have ever owned. I have several pair of the full length Cresta hiking socks, and have just expanded to include these quarter length socks for summer months. great fit, high quality, and very comfortable !

I am very happy with these socks; while I have purchased from other manufacturers, I found myself sorely disappointed with their socks. These LL Bean socks are very comfortable and I also tested them with their sock liner product; I felt like I was walking on air. I like LL Bean because everything that I have bought from them works for me. Finally, the fact that they test their products is a great comfort. But the ultimate test is when I buy and use the product. I have been very pleased with the performance of these socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MGoeHiking Great Pair of Socks
I got my first pair of these approximately 2 years ago. Since then I've ordered them at least two more times. They are great quality and the colors are perfect. I would recommend them to everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RealReviewer Dissatisfied - over-large unlike the other socks
I ordered some other socks with this dud, and I can confirm that only these socks are over-sized and ill-fitting. The other socks (supposedly the same size) fit me perfectly. Why is LL Bean selling socks with nominally the same size, and yet their socks are of inconsistent sizes? Completely dissatisfied. Lately it's been like playing return-package roulette with LL Bean - I order and just pray I don't have to go through the hassle of returning items. Looks like I can't even count on sock sizes any more. Sad. I might ask for one size down, except I no longer have any confidence in LL Bean so for all I know one size down will be two sizes too small. Argh!

Comfortable, well-fitting, and good for hiking in. I use them with my Cresta hiking boots, and they're a good combination.

Very comfortable. I wear mens size 9 shoes, so I bought the size medium socks and they fit very well; I am very happy I didn't buy the size large socks! Definitely follow the directions for the laundry, the socks aren't just throw in the wash as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valuechooser Warm, durable, nice looking, in MY size
First, I bought two pairs a couple of years ago. I wanted wool sox for the winter, when indoor humidity is low and cold seems to settle into the skeleton.
I am tall and thin with proportional feet, so the availability of the XL size was highly favorable.
I chose the blue. The socks have a varied pattern in the weave that is attractive; not your normal drab unicolor, but with a subdued multi color character.
They say you need to keep your head warm in winter, (I also have a wool watch cap) still, warm feet help, too. I wear them while sleeping that reduces night cramps in the feet.
Like another reviewer, I can wear these a couple of days thru exercise, in and out, and they are still fresh.
So I bought another two pair, in the grey color. They, too, have been great all around.
Both times I bought on sale, along with free shipping, no sales tax and uncompromising warranty, I could not be happier.
