I'm forever on the hunt for better socks than the last ones I fell in love with. It's like shoes, only for me it's socks!!
I saw these JoxSox on HSN and of course I believe everything they say about all the products. I knew these had to be THE one's so even though they were $4.95 a pair, and they only came in a 4-pack, I dialed up and ordered them.
These are ladies crew socks, size 9-11 and white in color. I am on my feet back and forth from my desk to the warehouse a lot at work so I need something comfortable, cushioned, would keep my feet dry and not overheat.
JoxSox are advertised as extra comfortable with an airflow technology to keep my feet cooler (only bare feet can do that), drier (sure) and reduce odor (I do wash my feet every day when I shower and put clean socks on every morning!).
Here are the results:
Don't wear them in Florida or anywhere where it's hot. I couldn't get them off fast enough! They did not keep my feet cool at all during the day. Cool evenings or colder climates are great for these socks as I wear them all the time back home in Michigan.
They did keep my feet dry even though they were hot! The tops of these socks are different than anything I've ever seen and I've included a picture while I have them on. It's like a mesh type design that's supposed to let the air flow through.
I always wear crew socks and these are a nice snug fit which helps to reduce the swelling I tend to get around my ankles when I've been on my feet all day. They do not slip down at all which is a plus.
The cushioned/padded bottom is very nice and is great to walk on. I can't say it reduces the fatigue on my feet because when my puppies are tired, they ARE tired.
Do they reduce foot odor? I can't say, no one has complained, I can't smell my feet and hubby's nose does not work!
The material is 90% cotton, 7% stretch nylon and 3% spandex. The instructions say to wash inside out but since I let hubby wash things he can't ruin, I can't say if he does this, probably not. There is a lifetime gaurantee but who's going to save a receipt for the lifetime of a sock??
All in all, I am OK with these JoxSox but I probably won't spend the money to buy them again.
