In my title for this review, I say these socks stink, by that I do not mean they smell bad, I mean the quality is terrible.

I purchased this bag of socks last year during our back to school shopping. They were labeled as a special buy and seemed like a great deal at 15 pair of socks for only $6.00. This was one of those times when we got what we paid for. I searched the bag for a name or manufacturer but there is none all is says in several places is made in the USA. They were purchased at Walmart and since they are very proud of their made in the USA products, I will have to assume that it is their brand of socks.

The socks are boys terry cloth bare ankle socks. You can see in my picture that the bag is still half full. That is because these were so bad that after we used the first few, we decided not to try anymore. The socks are very thin, so much so that you can almost see through them. They stretched out and lost their shape, the first time my son wore them. The woven band that is designed to hold the socks snugly at your ankle so they do not slide down is less than 1/2 an inch wide and does absolutely nothing. By the time he put on his shoes and took 2 steps, the socks had slipped down into the shoes. There is also no extra material or reinforcements in the toe or heel area.

Sometimes a bargain is a good thing and other times, you get stinky socks to show for it. Save your money if you see these in Walmart and get a better named brand bag of sock instead.
