Too thick for regular shoes/boots.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by palecorsair from Cleveland, OH on Wednesday, January 26, 2011
These socks are wonderfully warm, soft and come in great colors. I had another pair many years ago and liked them so much that I ordered three recently when it started to get very cold. I wear a size 8.5 (39) shoe, and so ordered the medium sock. They are all much too big, with the seams around the sock foot bed reaching well up the back of my ankle when I pull them on. Partly because of this, but mostly because they're so bulky, they won't fit even in my roomiest, rugged boots. Obviously I'm not trying to wear them in normal shoes, but I thought they'd fit in boots that usually accommodate really thick socks. I would say they add at least one full size to my foot. I'm hoping they will shrink/pile/wear down in the wash and dryer, but until then I can really only wear them in my huge snow boots and my sheepskin slippers.
