Rated 5 out of 5 by keith Excellent quality; just what I wanted!
I only buy Gold Toe over-the-calf socks, but there are never enough in the store. So I buy online. However, because I want a certain thickness, it is hard to buy online. I saw these and it said they were "athletic". I figured that meant they were thicker, and it was true! I also wanted mostly cotton, and they are. I always wash things before I wear them, and these did not shrink or if they did, it was only slightly. They still fit over the calf, and stay up all day without any adjustments. If I was in a hot climate, I'll admit they would probably be too hot to wear, since they are thick and tight. But for me, I wanted something thicker and that had quality, and these are it. LIke the ad said, they also seem to have a nice thicker area at the toe and the heel, which is where most of my wear usually is. So I anticipate these lasting me a long time! They are great socks and if you want a sock that is thick, comfortable, stays up, and is quality, these are the ones to get! I highly recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CrankyYankee All's well that ends well. An item (socks) no longer on the store shelves was successfully ordered through the computer.
For the past few years, I have routinely bought these fine socks from Penneys. They are rugged, comfortable, and being over-the-calf socks protect against the development of varicose veins. This time, for some reason, they were no longer on the store shelves, so I had to order them through the computer and later pick them up at the store. Although that was more awkward and time-consuming than simply taking them from the shelf, in the end I was able to get what I wanted.

Fantastic !!! Penney's offered my socks at a GREAT price and a GREAT deal too boot !! These socks double as a great sock but also takes the place of compression socks for me according to my doc from years ago !! At 51 years old, I can be on my feet all day wearing these socks and I love it !! Again JCPenney's beat ALL local retailers in price and shipping and GREAT customer service. Yes I had to order on line but again it was MORE then worth the wait !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gingerpeachy Perfect Socks for My Husband
My husband loves these Gold Toe Athletic Over-the-Calf Socks. He has diabetes and is pretty picky about what he wears on his feet. These socks are long-lasting, even through hot washings. They don't bunch or bind. I stock up on these when they are on sale, and only get tossed when there are holes in the heels, which is quite a while of wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loves2pugs My husband loves these socks!
My husband has worn these type of socks for probably 30 years or more. He wear boots quite often and the sock stays in place and doesn't slip down. The elastic is still strong even after socks are worn out.
