Warm & wooly!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Natasha of the North from North Pasadena, CA on Wednesday, February 9, 2011
I work in an historic old building where the office is freezing cold, so I purchased a few pair of these socks in black to help keep my toes toasty. And because they're made by SmartWool, these socks are very comfortable and don't itch at all. I've washed them a few times and they have not shrunk, even when dried in the dryer. It's nearly impossible to find black wool dressy socks for women in So California. (I'd previously bought some in a ski shop, but didn't want to pay [$] pair for more.) So these socks fit the bill perfectly in quality and price. I can't wait to try them skiing.The socks are marked "irregular" but whatever the slight imperfections might be, they do not adversely affect the feel or the wear of these great socks. They are a bit bulkier than I expected, but hey -- they're WARM and that's what counts. The only minor downside for wearing these at the office is visual-- they have funky patterned lines that delineate the extra padding of the shin, heel and instep -- part of sock's design. But no problem when I wear them with boots.Other than that, my feet are now toasty warm in this meat locker they call an office. And when my feet are happy, I'm happy!
