Rated 1 out of 5Â by bluecometmike the socks shrunk
these socks were identical in appearance and had the same label as socks I bought in a shoe store. they were the same length when I received them. the reason for buying these particular socks is that they were "over the calf" and were very comfortable; they were an acceptable replacement for compression stockings that were too tight and caused pain.
when the socks I bought from Kohls were cold rinsed they shrunk more than an inch and were no longer "over the calf" (Gold Toe description). one even shrunk to half its previous size. the socks I bought from the shoe store, same brand, same style, exact same label, have been washed several time and haven't shrunk at all.
I intend to contact Gold Toe to try to get an explanation.

..but the quality of the material used to make the socks is very flimsy. Also, I ordered the "extended" size and this did not make it even halfway over my calf. Very disappointed. These socks are the only ones I have ever purchased. Now I've got to go hunting...
