I have a pair of these socks and have absolutely loved running in them. However, I missed the fact that the women's L for them is 11.5+ (not 9-11 like I was expecting). I typically wear a size 9.5-10 shoe, and a size 11 running shoe. The L fit, but they were much longer than the mediums that I do have. I was concerned about them stretching so I sent them back.

When I first put these socks on I was afraid they were going to bunch up or fall down in the back, because they seemed rather short. But they stayed put just fine! They are soft and comfortable. My only complaint is the color. I like green, but this isn't an easy color to find compliments to, and they are visible above the shoe. So I do feel restricted when choosing what to wear with them.

Silk is perfect for socks; its thermal flexibility, moisture-wicking qualities and light weight make it a perfect choice. Not sure how well these socks will hold their shape after multiple launderings -- after the first wash, they shrank and lost a bit of substance -- but the comfort factor is remains real.
