I have about 5 or 6 of these exact pairs from previous purchases here. I can vouch for them being good quality, and also have gotten a surprising number of compliments on them. If I didn’t have so many already, I’d definitely buy again.
And actually thinking about it (in my first post I was pointing out the typo of making the men and woman’s size the same at the bottom of the size range but different at the top end) since a men’s 8 is a woman’s 10 you’d have to pretty big feet for these socks to fit women. So in reality the woman’s shoe size would be 10-15 which is not most of women, in fact it is difficult to even find shoes over size 10 in most women’s shoe departments.
How do these suddenly fit women? Past sales have determined that the men’s socks are too big for almost all women. Today there’s no size choice when ordering. Please explain this: The socks are supposed to fit men with shoe sizes 8-12 and women with shoe sizes 8-13. BUT a woman’s size 8 shoe is the same size as a man’s size 6 shoe. By definition therefore these socks should fit men who wear size 6. But the low point on the size range for men is 8. How is this possible?
I wouldn’t mind some cool new socks but I’m not going to take a chance of getting six pairs that are way too big for me.
@Pamela I’d agree. And then the sad part is that we can’t get Glen socks because we don’t want to buy men’s socks that we can’t wear. Of course if they are sized the same way then they are too big too. I have had to give away my mediocre socks because they are way too big as well. I really wish meh would take that into consideration when they make glen socks, mediocre socks, etc. and make them in sizes that women can wear too. Yet again meh ignores their female customers. menh
@Kidsandliz@Pamela they are for average size feet. If your feet are really small or really big. You already know you can’t buy average socks. You need small or large. Mens or women’s sizing is irrelevant. They are just socks.
@unksol You are incorrect. I can buy woman’s socks easily. They fit my average size feet just as well as woman’s size 8 shoes do. But if I buy Vans in a male size, the shoes that fit me are size 6. These socks claim to be both the right size (because they fit woman’s size 8 ) and too large (because they don’t fit men’s size 6) for me. They can’t be both.
@unksol I agree with @Pamela. I have larger feet. Men’s socks are too long and so as a result the heel is pulled up higher up on my leg than the heel of my foot so I don’t have sock bunched up in the toe of my shoes.
@unksol I miss anything new and/or interesting…Amazon had a flash sale two days ago on Gerber Paraframe pocket knives for 5 dollars…spent my MEH money there…and got it in two days…This site is soooo done.
It was actually pretty hard to decide on a pack, but I got monkeys and pandas. Didn’t care for much for the monkeys, but loved the print of the 4th pair (from left.) Which pair in your pack sealed the deal for you?
@rustyh3 On the brand’s website they currently have 40% off so the $12 ones (there seems to be a range of prices on the website) are selling for $7.20 there (although apparently some of the socks meh is selling are discontinued)
@ishoppe247 Well they refunded my order and I have no use for these panda socks so if you want to PayPal me the cost to ship them to you I’d be happy to. I don’t need more pandas. You can email me at Timothy Ellis @ gmail (without the spaces).
