    I have been wearing El-Pine Wigwam socks for 23 years. Being a diabetic, the relaxed fit was perfect for circulation issues on the lower leg. I still have pairs that are YEARS old, and still wearable. The ones I have bought recently from Amazon have ALL worn thru at the heel....bear in mind, we are talking about socks lightly worn for 2 or 3 months. Probably the same old story of a company wanting to cut corners, and improve the bottom line. Short term thinking is also an old story. But if you have your heart set on the Wigwams, go ahead and buy them, but don't be surprised if you get a repeat performance.....

    I selected the "11-13" size -- which for socks means XLG. However, "Large" was shown when I added it to the cart. These were to replace older pairs (10 years ago) that are wearing thin in the heel. I've always bought the largest size, then washed and dryed them in the dryer to fit my 8 1/2 narrow foot. I only ordered one pair because of the reviews . . . good thing.

    These are NOT manufactured like the olders pairs. The toe box seam was improperly constructed -- it is not a flat seam - it's raised and stiff. Washing does not fix it. You cannot use them for hiking or walking. These will be my indoor socks -- worn with a liner - as these are VERY scratchy -- washing didn't fix that either. Won't be ordering again.

    I love these heavy ragg wool socks. They keep my feet warm even if my shoes get wet. They are great for our wet and chilly winters in the South (North Alabama).
    They are easy to wash in the sink with Woolite and will dry quickly for me if I wring them out by rolling them up in a towel. I bought my third pair in the last month so I can always have a spare pair. I might buy some more.

    I finally had to replace my original Wigwams (same exact sock) that I purchased almost 40 years ago because the heel finally gave way. Since I am spending the winter in the mountains this year, I needed WARM. These are warm. They are heavy wool. They are washable. They last and last. They have the most wool content of all the socks I considered buying. My toes thank you. Worth every penny!

    I have two pairs of these for Winter wear and like them very much. I noticed that they have a Lifetime Product Guarantee but am unable to find any reference anywhere on the product page as to what that warranty covers. Wondering whether the manufacturer monitors these reviews and can offer clarification but welcome comments from anyone who may know.
    Went and checked the Wigwam website and their lifetime warranty only applies to workmanship, not to normal wear and tear. So if the heel wears out as mine are after 3 years of wearing around the house in the Winter, it's time to buy new ones...

    First day wearing these. Initial impression is of quality. Before slipping these bad boys on, I looked at them in the packaging and was like 'Hellllls no.. These are way too thick.' After slipping them on, I realized they fit far better and less bulky then they would appear to in the packaging. They do not have tons of stretch but just kind of conform to the foot nicely. It is weird. Maybe a wool sock thing. After putting my boots on (Nike SFB), I walked a bit and was really pleased by how these feel on my feet. They also look great in the salt & pepper style.

    tl;dr - initially was like hells no, too thick.. tried on and loved them... almost sent back but keeping all 3 pairs.

    Update: socks are great! They still look and function superbly. Love them. My favorite go-to winter or cool weather sock. I have Darn Tough socks and wish they sold a pair in the salt and pepper style mainly because of their warranty. But, that said, these feel tougher and thicker than the DT socks.

    When I found these socks I first of all was happy there is a pair of wool socks for under $15. But to be carful I first ordered one pair of black pepper grey color to test before buying more.

    I use these socks at home only. I need to warm my feet after I began having poor circulation and neuralgia issues with feet after surviving "big C" illness. So my criteria for a sock weren't to get a sock that performs in a boot in cold weather, but only to warm myself at home.

    The Wigwam brand turned out to have the best qualities of all socks I tried. When you get them new they are slightly shrunk. When you put them , they will initially cause irritation against the foot skin but this goes away in a day.
    Most importantly the sock formly applies itself to entire foot, it is elastic enough to constantly have soft pressure on the around the surface area. It is the feature I always look for because when a sock slides against the soles of the feet it can cause sensation of coldness or tickling if your have neuropathy.

    These socks unlike other popular brands feel as if they have more wool as they are more "prickly". To me this is a good thing, although if you want something in between cotton and wool you may need another brand. Well this one is much better when absorbing moisture if you ever had sweaty feet. I don't think it is an intended feature of the sock, just a property of high wool content

    Afterward I ordered the beige color a e dark green and they are all of equal quality

    Ask if you have any additional questions.
