Most comfortable socks I have ever found, and I am a real comfort hound. I wear these every day in black with my black SAS oxfords and white ones in the summer every day with sandals. They ensure super comfort for my feet all day in everything I do. I am retirement age, but a few years ago I wore these Buster Brown all cotton anklets in white with cuffs folded down and a flat-heeled shoe and a dress on Easter Sunday to church. One of the matriarchs of the congregation congratulated me heartily on my good taste and cute style in socks and shoes. The toe seam is almost nonexistent; it is so fine and smooth, you will never know it is there. This is the only sock I have ever found that has such a smooth toe seam. Cotton wicks the perspiration off the feet and keeps the feet feeling dry. I would buy these socks even if they are not on reduction sale; for me they are a necessity, not an option. I occasionally wear other socks over them if I want a warmer and woolier feel or a thicker effect in a boot or clog. That way the soft smooth cotton is next to my skin, keeping me super comfy.

I think I went for one size tooo large.
I like them enough to buy again, but this time, one size smaller than last time.
BAD POINTS--- they claim seamless toes, but there IS a join. I specifically went for these ones due to that feature. The join is NOTHING LIKE as big as other socks, but there is a stitched join! Other bad point ({ I bought only black socks }) is the amount of dark black water in a hot water machine wash. Early days yet, but during the second machine wash in hot water, I was most wise to avoid sharing them with ANYTHING else that might take up that dye to be ruined, because, yes, the water was filthy black with black dye.
I wonder how dark the water will be on third wash, but beyond that, I don't expect any more dye to leach out after 3rd time.
Good Point ---- I like the length they come up leg. Rides close to leg, not floppy/loose.

        These are the socks my mom finds most comfortable. The only problem is that I forgot that I learned previously that I really needed to order the smaller size since these socks run larger than the stated size.

                          I bought my correct size (9-10), but these socks were too loose and stretched to my brother's size (14 mens)! So, I gave them to him. On the plus side, these are very soft, comfortable, well- made socks! If I ever bought them again, Id buy a size down.

                                i just recently purchased these as I had ankle repair surgery done a month ago and my surgeon was emphatic about nothing but totally 100% cotton touching my incision. He claimed any thing like nylon, orlon or other petroleum by-products would be harmful as to healing with the least scarring. I purchased size 11 for my 11-12 shoe size due to reviews that they run a little large. They fit perfectly and have not shrunk after washing. Glad to find the product.

                                  Based on other customers' comments, I ordered the smallest size; but, size 9 is still enormous. I washed the socks on the hottest machine setting and did likewise in the dryer. They shrunk a wee bit...but not enough. Otherwise, the soft and thin cotton and pastel shades are quite nice.

                                    I am an 80 year old lady confined to a wheelchair with foot and leg problems.
                                    These sox are the most comfortable and easiest to put on I have ever worn.
                                    I will never buy any other kind. I highly recommend them to everyone.

                                        I am waiting for them to shrink a little bit. Size lower would be too small

                                        I was looking for light weight socks and these are exactly what I wanted. I ordered the size according to my shoe size, and they are too large. No other issues.

                                        "I have worn these socks for years," says Ladybug from Maryville, TN, "but this is the best bargain I have ever found!" Many of our customers buy these cute little Buster Brown socks by the bunch, for everyday wear all year 'round. They're soft 100% cotton - won't chafe or irritate even the most sensitive skin - with seamless toes that won't rub or bind. Ribbed top guarantees they'll stay up nicely instead of flopping down. Elastic-free and synthetic-free - nothing but pure natural comfort. Buster Brown has been making them with quality since 1902. Buy 'em by the bunch and save!
