I Love These!!!
These socks are SO soft. Absolutely no itch what so ever. They are really light weight, without being thin. I've been wearing them with my Uggs for the past 2 weeks and I adore them. I wash them inside out, lukewarm water (really like a warm cool water) and lay flat to dry. I find that this merino wool is particularly beautiful. It's very soft on the foot and it really does allow for breathing, and thus, regulating your body's natural temperature. I really wish I had picked up the grey. I hope there are more. These are fantastic socks for the colder months. These add warmth to Wunder Under Pants or Skinny WIlls. They are really quite enjoyable!!!!

this years version is amazing!
I bought a pair in black,cream and the grey with stripes and they are so soft and warm. perfect for wearing with boots! they are not thin and flimsy like last years at all. I have worn them a ton already and havent gotten holes in any of them. I just went and bought a second pair of each color I am so impressed. Expensive for socks but worth it for me :)

nice and long for 5.11
Im 5.11 with long legs so it is dificult to get long enough socks, so every year when lulu comes out with long socks I get a pair. So far this one is great, very warm and it fits nice, not too tight behind knee. I did see the other revies but my pair is holding up. I would recommend them to others.

I tried these socks and also obtained a hole the second day I wore them. I should have listened to the ton of comments below. I know that you sometimes get a lemon from anywhere you buy clothing from but I think with all of the reviews below, Lulu really needs to check into the quality especially based on the price..... There seems to be a pattern starting below... Very Disappointed....

waste of money
I missed getting these online so i bought a pair from ebay - new with tags still on - and paid extra for them (almost $60). they were in perfect condition when i got them, but after wearing only two times, today i noticed a hole in the heal of one foot and the little metal lulu things was falling off. i am very disappointed. even the regular lulu price of $42 is expensive. i expected much better quality and socks that would last forever for that price. sucks.

this sock sucks!
Sorry, but I purchased these socks in October. I wore them a couple times and noticed that the heel of the sock wore out and the little rubber bubbles on the sole of the sock came off. Also the little teal tag that says lululemon fell off, leaving a bunch of threads which did not look too attractive. I went back and got a new pair a couple weeks ago and the same thing is happening to these ones: the heel is wearing out, the rubber bubbles have fallen off and the teal tag fell off. I spent 28 dollars on this product and I don't feel I got my money's worth. I am wondering what they would say if I went back a second time with the same issues I had as the first pair. I am not happy with this purchase.

I'm really enjoying these socks. I love the color, I love the studs and the style and warmth they add to my look when wearing boots.

Need a smaller size
I take Bar Method classes and these socks are really grippy which is great for class. Unfortunately, they are too big for my size 7.5 foot and tend to slide off my heel or my toes (unless I pull them all the way up to my mid thigh causing the heel to be in the middle of my ankle). I have tried to wash and dry them to shrink them but it hasn't helped.
I haven't experienced any of the quality problems that the other reviewers mentioned. I have the dark gray color and haven't experienced any pilling or button issues.
Lulu, please make similar socks with the same grip bottom but in a smaller (and shorter) size.

I got these socks from my sister and thought they were cute. I put them on yesterday and wore them for 2 hours and by the end, they already pilled and looked a couple years old. They're somewhat comfortable but they look hideous. I wish I could show my sister but I don't want her to feel bad for buying me such poor quality clothes

I bought these socks mostly to wear with skirts and shoes, rather than for exercise. They're SO cute, warm and thin enough to fit in shoes or boots. I love the cute details, the skidproof soles and the lovely soft feel of the wool. I often wear these under dress pants to work on colder days. And they're not itchy at all!
I have not had any serious quality issues with the socks (and I wear them a LOT!), but I did find some pilling at the heels and base of the sock, probably from rubbing on my shoes. I find that they fit a little big- I generally wear a size 7 and I often find the heel of the sock rides up closer to my ankle .. It would be great if these were available in small and large sizes or something to accomodate different foot sizes. I also found them to be a little long- they're over my knee when pulled all the way up- they'd look so much better 2 inches shorter! I don't find them too tight at the top of the sock, as other reviewers have complained of, but I do find that the decorative buttons tend to leave indentations in my skin due to the back of the button. If the back of the button was smooth, it would make them more comfortable! In my opinion, they're pretty pricy for what you get. They're good socks, but $28 is a lot for them. I got a similar pair at Joe for $4 and they're almost as good!
