My husband can normally wear holes in his socks just by looking at them - but I think he'll struggle to stick his toes through these! I had intended to get him some from M&S, but they had a pitiful range of sizes and styles - and then I saw these. By taking advantage of the 'Buy one, get one Free' offer AND just happening to go into the shop on a '20% extra discount' day, I got thses great little socks - plus a pack in white - for just £10.39! They are superb quality with extra thickness in all the places you'd need it (including at the back of the heel to prevent rubbing on the back of the shoe) - top quality. He says they feel mega-comfy on. Happy feet!
