I have always loved the slouch socks, but this new Soleution slouch sock is not the same thing. The top half is ok, although a bit tighter on the very top seam, but the foot is way too thick. I couldn't wear my boots with them. Also they only come in black; in the past there were browns and blues and whites as well. I wish they would bring back the slouch socks of the past. I will have to settle for something else.

I love Gold Toe slouch socks. What I especially like is the soft knit and medium weight. Because my washing machine tends to eat socks, I am always in a panic when I go to my Gold Toe store and find that the slouch socks have been discontinued. Fortunately, they have kept bringing them back. A couple of weeks ago, I again went to the Gold Toe store to stock up and found them discontinued again and nothing comparable available. I went online to see if I could find a place that had leftover stock. I was delighted to find that the Gold Toe online store had socks called Women's Slouch Crews. They looked just like the slouch socks I had always bought and the description of the SoleUtion line said all the right things, including they were especially good for sensitive feet. Thrilled, I ordered 8 pair. When they arrived, I was so disappointed. The yarn was stiff, almost scratchy. From the ankle up, they were just like the slouch socks I was always used to. However, the foot part thick and bulky with a texture resembling a stiff towel on the inside. My feet are a bit sensitive and when I wear these socks, it feels like I am walking on coarse sand, even when I'm just sitting down. I wished someone had reviewed these socks before I wasted my money on them. Gold Toe--please bring back the real slouch socks.

This sock has helped with the heel pain I've been experiencing since my TKR. I put them on as soon as I get home and the relief is instant. Thank you!
