How would you rate the product? Did you like it or not?
I think that the socks are great, way better than cotton socks.
What primary purpose did you purchase the garment for?
I am using the socks for every day wear, Iím on my feet a lot at work and can get problems with my feet, soreness, athletes foot, stuff like that so I bought a few pairs of bamboo socks to see if they would be better for my feet.
How did you test the garment out?
I just went to work as normal. I did wear the bamboo socks for a full week so I could compare them with the cotton sock that I normally wear. (Not the same pair obviously)
How did it perform?
When I first put the bamboo socks on they did feel really comfortable but I got used to that quite quickly. I also noticed that they seem smoother and if youíre wearing clogs or slip-on shoes your feet slip around a bit more than with cotton socks. My feet did seem dryer in hot weather and I would say foot odour was less as well.
Were there any problems with this garment or retailer?
No problems but what I would say is that US sock sizes seem to be smaller than UK sizes so it would be a good idea to get large size even if you normally take a medium unless you like your socks close fitting.
Do you have any further comments?
I only bought three pair to just to try them out, now that Iíve washed them a few times and they have been mixed up in the wash with my cotton socks sometimes itís difficult to find the bamboo socks amongst he cotton ones so I would recommend getting ten pairs and throwing away your old cotton socks or at least keeping them separate.
