Good Value for Diabetics
I am very pleased with these socks. I have very sensitive, sore diabetic feet, and the fabric in these socks is very soft and non-binding. There is a seam in the toe, but it is very soft and barely visible. My feet are so happy wearing these socks. I wear a size 9 wide shoe.

Beware .. Reorder = different + inferior sock
I am so mad I could spit nails.
Loved my initially ordered socks so much that I reordered. Husband opened package and washed them as we do with all (washable) new clothes. By the time I got my hands on them - well, all it took was one touch! The material is different, #6010-19, 65% cotton, 30 nylon, 5 elastan as opposed to the original: #6010, 75% cotton, 24 nylon, 1 spandex. The socks are about 1/2" longer and the seam over the toes is definitely bulkier = uncomfortable. We are talking nice, soft sock to wear in clogs vs. a common gym sock.
A reorder means: I would like this item again, NOT an inferior substitute.
Too bad they had been washed! Now I must make another search for those socks, black and white; going shopping used to be fun, disabled and dependent on a walker it is not!
Original sock = 5 stars, substitute = 0

Great for me - not really unisex!
I just received these (in heather denim) and love them! However, I wear a size 9 narrow ladies shoes, and these fit me perfectly. I ordered them to use as slipper socks inside my home, and they are wonderful for that, and could also be used with my tennies. They would not possibly fit a man if he wore greater than a man's size 10 shoe. Sure, they could stretch that far, but I think they would be uncomfortably tight, both in length and around his ankles. So, ladies, if you like socks that fit comfortably (not baggy) and you wear a size 8 to (possibly) a size 10 shoe, do not hesitate to buy these! They are mostly cotton and rayon with a bit of spandex, quite thin fabric but so so comfortable!
