    Picture tells the story. Top sock is an older Cotton Fluffies sock (not old enough to be USA-made, though) which has been fine. Bottom sock is this product, after one washing. It's a lint-catcher, not a sock. What's more, the new pair weighs 78g (including lint), while the old pair, well-worn, weighs 93g.

    I bought about a dozen goldtoe socks about 7 years ago and I love them. They never wear, tear, lose size or color and I still use them.

    I couldn't find them at Costco so I ordered them here. The socks I received were of very bad quality. The seams are loose, the size is different. Price is still premium.

    See my photo of the original vs the ones that were shipped, and see the high quality of a 7 year old sock next to the poor quality of a brand new one. I also added a photo of the loose seams.

    The difference is huge, and the product is not what expected so they were imiddiately returned.

    I've been buying these socks for 30 years....For some reason, about 10 years ago they started changing the material/size/color/construction, but never the label. It was annoying (thinner/cheaper feel), but what's worse is that they have continued unexpectedly changing the sock almost annually since then. I've seen too short, long, stretchy, constrictive with no apparent pattern. It's not quality control, as all of the socks in any given order are the same, but from order to order, not at all -- even from the same seller.

    I just dipped my toes in yet again last month and got the most bizarre version yet: thinner and waay too long and stretchy (up to the knees on a 6-1 guy), even after washing on hot to try to shrink them. Triple checked the packages and they are supposedly the same old normal size cotton fluffies...

    With these socks, you never know what you are going to get.

    I have read reviews (both negative and positive). Decided to purchase the socks anyway to compare as I have also worn these Gold Toe Fluffies since the 1980's:

    1. These socks are different than my previous purchase. I note that one reviewer indicated the socks made a lot of lint that would remain on the bottom of his feet after removing the socks. In past purchases i had the same problem. I would track sock fuzz all over the place, even after repeated wearings. But not with this recent purchase...no fuzz...thankfully.

    2. While i don't know the construct of the other reviewers who said the sock cuts off circulation to their legs, or does not stay up / in place. i have had neither of these problems and never have, with Gold Toe socks. I wear a size 13 shoe so I'm not a small guy. If I were an overweight person, there probably would be some credo to the circulation comment but at just over 200 pounds, I do not have any tight fit issues on my legs.

    3. I do note that the current Fluffies are not of the same construct, however one reviewer indicated that he can 'see through the sock'. I cannot and once again i'm not a small guy...see comment above. These socks do appear to be constructed/designed a bit more toward a dress sock look rather than a casual sock look. Comfortable in my casual shoes/boots and look darn good with my dress shoes.

    The socks i purchased through Amazon (slightly less than dept stores in price and free delivery) I am very pleased with. I don't have the same problems as others who have reviewed. And I *definitely* do not miss all that sock fuzz I used to have.

    For me, this purchase is two thumbs up...slightly different sock, with some improvements.

    No way. I've been wearing Gold Toe cotton Fluffies most days of my life since the 1980s. I just got the black sized 6 - 12 1/2 with the black cardboard label saying Heritage Collection. There's a white sticker on the back that says Cotton Fluffie 3 Pr

    Now the white label says, 81% cotton18% nylon 1% spandex. The product page says 86% cotton but I figure it is what it is so I open the plastic bag.

    It does not look like a Fluffy and it doesn't feel like one either. It's way stretchier, and the lines running up and down the sock are different, they're narrower. I could be mistaken but these seem like a lot of socks I can get at the store. I specifically wanted the kind I've been wearing for a while. I think there are acrylic fluffies that I never buy, maybe these are them. That's just a guess. Back they go :<

    These are very uncomfortable, the fabric is thin and the seams stick out of the fabric and rub against the toes - this can drive you mad!
    Also the fabric of the top of the socks is considerably thicker and will slide down the leg and bunch up.

    Do yourself a favor and buy the Athletic version of these - they are completely different and are very good.
    See the photo of my 2+ years old athletics next to these "Fluffies" (which are not fluffy at all).

    Poor quality. Socks lacked "elastic" or spandex-type material in the foot and leg. As soon as I put them on, they began to sag on my leg and started to bunch up in the shoe. Seemed like socks from yesteryear. Unwearable for me, anyway. Don't know how they got all the good reviews. I returned them for a refund. I guess socks are something you have to buy in person.

    This Listing for a single 3 pair pack is for a much better product than similar listing for multiple packs (two packs, three packs and four packs). You can see the difference in my photo. Both pairs were purchased in Fall 2018. Pair on left purchased in 2 pack of 6 pairs. They have shrunk and faded. I think they're made in China . Pair on the right from single three pair pack. It retains its color and shape. Note Stitching half-inch from the top, marking difference between single pack listing and multiple pack listing. They're made in Mexico. Single packs cost more per pair than multiple packs but it's worth the extra cost for the better quality. They're more comfortable and launder better.

    El producto es bueno ya conocía la marca solo que Me equivoqué de modelo. Este modelo tienden a aflojarse rápido el elástico de la pantorrilla pero en general son muy buenos y durables

    These are comfortable summer weight socks. They are 100% cotton and have held up in the washing machine thus far.
