I have sensitive soles and have used these Gold Socks for over 25 years. Now the socks are VERY uncomfortable with the addition of man made materials. I would gladly pay for the 100% cotton but they are not available. In the past month I have purchased every iteration of this sock only to toss them into the garbage after no more than 2 uses. I have a few cotton ones left I hope will last until Gold Toe shows up with 100% cotton again or I find another manufacturer.

I've happily worn these socks (usually from JCP) for many years. What happened to navy and brown colors? Other reviews suggest sizing has changed. I need to look elsewhere.

Found these socks at JCP. Bought them for several years and LOVED the cotton comfort, They fit a larger size foot and calf. Last year, same size, same price, but found the sock is now much, much smaller. [As in no longer wearable.] Hoped for a manufacturing error, but it seems the adjustment is systematic. Just a warning. Pull a pair out of the package if possible and compare to the size you need. (Or check the return policy wherever you buy.)

I love these socks. They provide good support for aging blood vessels. I bought six pairs of these socks four years ago. I wear them virtually every day, though enough of them have worn holes so I'm running low, now about to buy more. The styles and numbers have changed, but the nearest one -- Cotton Crew Extended -- costs a bit less than I paid in 2010. I hope they last as long!
In reference to another review: The ones I bought four years ago were stretchy, so this isn't a recent change.

THE SOCKS HAVE BEEN SHORTENED AND MADE MORE STRETCHY. FOR ME I PREFER THE OLD NON STRETCHY LONGER UPPERS. I ALSO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE HEEL WEARING OUT QUICKLY.

i have used these socks for years & their still the same. the heel wears out first. if the heel didn't wear out i could get another year out of them. also, the last couple years they look like baby socks. sock size 13 - 15, i have to streach them & they shrink up tight against my toes. don't like, thats why i buy extended size.
