I have worn and loved windsor wool OTC Gold Toes for a few years now. I originally bought navy and grey. The navy had serious pilling issues after only one wash. The grey remained smooth and great looking wash after wash. I recently ordered six new pairs in grey expecting them to be of the same fabric as those I still wear. Unfortunately something has changed in the fabric composition and the new grey pairs came out of the first wash severely pilled up just like the navy pairs I have owned. Nothing is more frustrating than a change in quality of a product you depend on. I guess I will have to find option for OTC dress socks.

My husband has worn Windsor wool mid-calf socks for most of his adult life. Like others he buys them 2-3 dozen at a time. PL EASE bring the mid-calf back. Black is a necessity but brown or blue are okay.

My husband has worn Windsor mid-calf for so many years I have lost count. Recently a disloyal posting on a web-site declared that the similar sock at Joseph Banks was better. NOT TRUE!!
There is nothing on the market to compare with the quality of the Windsor mid-calf and the resonable price. Fortunately, my husband has a few new extra pairs tucked away, but the stock is running a little low. PLEASE RESTORE A FAVORITE! Until then, no sale.

I have been wearing these for years because I am taller than the average woman with size 10 feet. Women's knee highs are always too short and very uncomfortable. I also prefer wool blend to cotton, much better for wicking moisture. It's cold where I live, so shorter socks do not keep my legs warm enough. I would love to buy these for my boyfriend, but he is 6'5" with size 14 feet. How about a larger size?

My Dad wore Gold Toe WW OTC, for size 13 shoes, for as long as I can remember. He died in 1989 and I have been wearing the pairs that I inherited, plus some I purchased, almost every day ever since. They are finally wearing out. PLEASE BRING THEM BACK! I would pay almost any price, since they last longer than anything else and are more comfortable as well. I have actually worn out a couple pairs of Smart Wools purchased much later and worn less often.

I have worn these socks since high school, a lot of years. Wearing wool socks provides for superior wicking. They are the best for long days in dress shoes. I use both the OTC and the shorter ones, depending upon the day, season, etc. For years now I have struggled to find these, both OTC and shorter. I miss the sized version and the mids. The newer OTC one size fits all is too tall. Please bring them back. I think with a little advertising support those of us that are in dress shoes all day would know how superior they are.

I have been using the WW OTC socks for over 25 years and love them. In the past I have bought them by the dozen and only have two pairs of the Olive ones. Are they coming bacK?????
GoldToe.com Response: Unfortunately, Olive has been discontinued. We are looking at limited colors for possible Fall 13.

My husband had worn Gold Toe's Windsor Wool OTC socks in EXTENDED size for 3 decades or more. He's quite tall and needs the extended size. We used to be able to special order that size in stores that sold the Windsor Wool socks, but Windsor Wool was discontinued 5+ years ago. Now that they're back, thank goodness, we'd like to know if Gold Toe is going to offer the OTC Windsor Wool in the extended size for tall men. The only socks on your website in extended size are cotton; husband wants OTC wool.

I have to add my voice to this conversation. I too have been wearing the WW mid-calf for decades. I need more now, please bring them back.

These socks used to be sized, small, medium, large, extra-large. One size does not fit all! Apparently, these socks are not only made in China, but the Chinese are making the decision on sizing. The Chinese are all small with the same size feet. The Chinese cannot comprehend tall Americans with big feet that need an extra-large for comfort. When you allow corporate-monopolies; you eventually get poor quality; such as one size fits all.
These also were not available in the Redding store, where it is cold in winter. I had to order online.
