Comfortable and functional
Not Durable, July 27, 2015 By Frank Lyons (Brattleboro, VT)
A sixty dollar pair of socks should last longer than a few months. I purchased these in April to travel to Europe, and they were reasonably comfortable, and effective in reducing the swelling in my legs and feet. I wore them maybe two or three times a week for four weeks, likely much less. Then on a three-week road trip in the U.S. in July, I again wore them maybe two or three times a week. They were always washed according to directions, and line dried. This morning when I put them on, I found my big toe poking through the tip of one of the socks. I have department store socks I paid three dollars a pair for that have lasted me for years. It is simply unacceptable for such an expensive item to have worn through in only four months and to be so flimsy.
