What I was after
I discovered these about 10 years ago, and now I wouldn't wear anything else for work. I'm in my boots for 16 hours at a time, and these socks hold up.
The socks are nice and thick and my husband says they are very comfortable. He wears a 10-1/2 size steel toed boot at work, I got a size large. They don’t slip and they are very cushioned. He has big calf’s and after being in them 12 hours a day they do leave indentation marks where the top band goes and he has lines down his legs from the socks. He still says they are very comfortable. I just wish the socks were a little more stretchy at the top, but for thinner people they would be great. Shrinkage was barely none.
These are the only socks I will buy , I buy a dozen maybe twice a year. They are thick enough to add the cushion I need as I almost allways wear a cowboy type work boot .Academy used to sell them and then didn't so I found the manufacturer website and got a $20 off code.
American made! Extra padding on feet during long hours wearing steel toe boots. What more can you ask for. Bite the bullet and buy them!
