Rated 4 out of 5 by Antigone Seams not flat
I needed some dark/black socks and since my favorite Cresta socks don't come in dark colors, I decided to give these a try. They are warm, loose and the seam at the toe is pretty thick. I'm going to keep them, because I need them, and maybe I'll put them in the dryer for a spin the next time I wash them. The wool is very nice, and not itchy. But that seam would make these not suitable for long walks.

I bought these hoping for a good sock on a future trip to Alaska. So disappointed. Seams are horrible. Not form fitting around the toes. The seam is long on top of the toes, it ends up going under toes also. Tried to use a sock liner but that didn't help. I could still feel the rubbing from the seams :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatCole XL is a women's 10, but 5 stars for these socks
I ordered the XL after reading the reviews. The socks were labeled XL and came with a tag that said "fits mens shoe 12-15" yet, these fit my women's size 10 feet perfectly. The socks are classic and a great option to wear with boots that have room for a thick sock.
Be sure to order your size carefully. These would never fit my husband's men's size 13 feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mommyof2andfourlabs Cozy Merino Wool Ragg Sock
I work in a warehouse type setting where it is cold on the concrete. These socks are perfect for this type of situation. I have worn the same pair to give them a good test for a week. The pair has been washed, dried, and worn everyday for a week straight and I have had no problems with them. I always get holes in the toes of my socks because of the way I walk and am on my feet for the entire shift so my socks always take a beating. This pair is a winner, winner chicken dinner! Love them. Will be ordering more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SillyNickyName Great Socks. Order a size larger.
The XLarge socks fit size 9 women's shoe size just fine. A little extra at the toe and will stretch to probably a men's 12 size shoe comfortably - Not 13-15 as the chart shows.
Soft, warm, wonderful. Love them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hootman L L BEAN logo included
after literally trashing the light crew socks....which did NOT have an LL BEAN Logo on them....and were pure garbage..... and thats where they went.....I thought it would only be fair to say that these wool socks are of the quality one would expect from
LL BEAN...maybe that is why these socks have the LL BEAN Logo on them...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ricky23 Disappointed
Really liked them initially, then I washed them. sorry but these socks should not have a even a tiny hole on the toe seam after just one wash and 15 minutes on a dryer on medium setting.
Not worth returning, but not excited about sewing them up, either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Litt Differences between designs?
I ordered additional pairs of these socks, and find that the ones with stripes have a more raised and annoying seam at the toe area compared to the solid colored version. I wonder if anyone else finds this to be the case.

Read other reviews and got the right size. These socks are pretty thick with only a little itch.
