Fifty percent nylon? Really? Piling. So high after first wash that it would be a thirty yard penalty. After thirty-five years, I'm where the wool is - gone.

These were great sox at one point but the reduction in wool content has made them less attractive to the point I will no longer purchase them. For those that do not mine only 50% wool finding them at retail stores is near impossible.

I have one pair of these socks that i bought in 1962 and they are still as fresh as the day I bought them. I'm looking for another color since my black ones are getting a little faded although I don't wash them that often.

The decline of this (once) great product continues. From what I can tell it started in 2007-2008 and with every revision gets worse.
Wool content is down to 50% (from 56%) and pilling is getting much worse. I don't know if this is a result of the 'Freshcare® Moisture Management' system of the drop in percentage of wool.
Irregardless, unless Goldtoe fixes this, I am through with your products.

My husband has worn your socks for years and we have bought them by the dozen, but can't find the really dark charcoal grey you used to carry! The ones I've seen are more a medium grey..will you have the really dark greys again?????
These are the best socks made....

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?
