Why would you ever make thin, flat, non-soft socks with the name "Fluffies"? And what "new customers" could possibly exist who liked them? Did you make these "new customers" up? You had a dynamite sock and turned it into something that no longer performs the function of a sock. I don't know why anyone wold even call these new "things" a sock. PLEASE make your Cotton Fluffies socks again, and send whatever these "things" are to the dungeon to never be heard from again.

Had the experience as others listed here. I originally mis-ordered in brown and must have gotten the old style b/c they were excellent, except the color. I returned them and ordered black and the resulting product was more like a crew sock. Very disappointed in Goldtoe. Some explanation or at least acknowledgment from the company would be nice.
Yes, these did change. The fiber update was an improvement by development and consumer testing. However we have noticed that new customers prefer the updated sock and our loyal customers prefer prefer the standard. Marketing is addressing this.

Sad day when a company doesn't pay attention to quality or the negative comments on it OWN WEBSITE. Your loyal customers are leaving because you are no longer producing a quality product. My last two purchases of your socks have been awful- I've been buying for years but now I'm done.
Before you go, please contact me @ email@example.com. Yes, the Cotton Fluffie has been updated. Development and testing showed that customers saw it as an improvement. However, its obvious that our loyal customers aren't as happy. We're working on it.

Thanks for the reviews Now that I know its not fluffy cotton anymore. Not going to buy. Goldtoe's Loss. Businessis never learn. You have a good thing and you change it and they loose. Just as Coca Cola on ther "New Coke" Big Looser.

Just adding my agreement here. At Kohl's I found a pack of the old Cotton Fluffies (unfortunately not in extended size) hanging next to a pair of the new version. The contrast was obvious and dramatic. The new version is thin, hard and as many others have said, not at all fluffy. I don't know what Goldtoe is thinking, but I hope the dent in their sales is dramatic enough to get their attention. That combined with a clunky, slow website is going to make me stay away from Goldtoe for awhile. Hope they get the message.

Saw the reviews here and no explanation from the company, so I too am very disappointed that Cotton Fluffies have been changed and I will not waste my time buying a product that I'm likely to have to return.

I purchased a 6 pack of Cotton Crew Gold Toe socks, style 656SE.
I called Gold Toe and was told the 656 , 565, and 633 are all the same sock in different package size. They are terrible compared to Gold Toe that I bought for many years. They are very tight and leave indentations on ankle at the end of the day, and probably cut off blood circulation.
The best socks in the world have degraded and are now among the worst.

I am happy with my current socks and planned to order more. Since I did not sees any other comments, nor any retraction by your company, I won't be purchasing any more from you.

I have purchased Cotton Fluffies for many, many, years and they were to best. However, the latest style 633E have changed dramatically. They are now slick, can see through them when on your foot, and no significant soft cotton. The ribbing looks different too. The label now indicates they are now imported from China. I will be returning these socks. If you can still find some made in the USA they are probably still excellent. Too bad Gold Toe has ruined the premium socks..
