Very nice socks that go all the way up to your knee and I am 5' 10" tall. I really like how they feel, not scratchy at all.

    I have a couple of new pairs of engineer boots and most of the socks I had would tend to drop below the top of the boot causing some calf rub. I tied a pair of knee high wool blends from BPS, but they showed excessive wear at the boot top after the first wear. I thought I would give these a try as the price was hard to pass up. They are great! No wear showing at the boot top so far, they stay up better than the BPS socks and are very comfortable (even in warmer temperatures) I highly recommend these.

    Bridgedale of Ireland outsourced to a South African maker - not "Made in UK" as stated in STP listing. That said, still a nicely made heavy sock and another great value from STP. Although these won't be tried until next winter they are certain to perform well.

    I tried on one sock and it was itchy AND started balling up right away.

    These things looked cushy except for the 4' x 6' area above the instep where the sewing was completely faulty, creating ridges of material in between near-thread-bare areas. What a joke. These are not seconds ... they're fourths or fifths. I cut off the feet and will use them for arm warmers.

About Bridgedale

From rocky hiking trails to powdery ski slopes, Bridgedale of Ireland believes that well-designed, high-quality socks are crucial for all outdoor endeavors, which is why Bridgedale socks are engineered to reduce unwanted friction and stay upright inside your boots. Because your feet sweat more than almost any other part of your body, Bridgedale places a special venting zone at the bridge of many socks to enhance breathability. For added comfort, forward flex technology prevents bunching, along with reinforced heels and toes for added durability. Once you’ve experience the high-tech design and premium materials behind every pair of Bridgedale socks, you might not want to wear anything else.
