I was so excited to get these, but on the first day I worse them I got multiple pulls - they are not made very well. Every time I wear them they catch and pull. Then I started wearing with cropped yoga pants in the cold and they are not warm either! The store associate told me that they were 100% merino wool and they feel synthetic on my legs. Very disappointed.

Loved them for 6 days
I loved these socks because they fit nicely around my legs and stayed up. I was able to wear them all the way up or scrunched down. Great for the current freezing NYC weather, but 6 days later they're completely falling apart.

Cozy but super delicate
I loved everything about these socks. The length was able to go up to my thicker than normal legs, they were warm but not too much as to make my feet sweat, the colour is nice too. The one thing that made me not want to recommend this is that they are SO delicate. As soon as I took them out of the package there was already a run in them, I though "oh well" and still put them on. When I took them off I notice other pulls and runs. For expensive leg warmers/socks, this was not cool! I went to the store to exchange them, and they were very nice to let me do that but I noticed that all of the socks in the cream colour had some sort of flaw, a run or a pull or a hole. I was super disappointed. I ended up getting a pair of the black ones instead. I think it would be great to have these not be so delicate. The After Asana socks are quite sturdy, I just wished these ones would be as wel..

Not Cool Lulu!
I purchased these socks and they arrived WITH A HOLE. It wasn't until I took them out of the packaging that I noticed the hole, but since I've taken them out of the package now I can't return them. I hate to imagine what would happen if I actually wore them! Seriously so far below the quality I've come to know and expect from Lulu.

Cuff doesn't stretch to accommodate thighs
I've been looking for over the knee socks and was super excited to find various colors on Lulu. However, I couldn't even pull the socks up above my knees :[ My legs aren't stick thin, they're more athletic, but I'd never consider myself to have big thighs.
The top of the sock isn't stretchy--there's a band of thread going around, preventing the sock from stretching any further.
PLEASE make a sock like this with an elastic/ribbed cuff up top!
I was really looking forward to wearing them with boots this winter.

Thought they would be 100% wool....
Comfy socks, look good....BUT... not 100% merino wool, no grips on the soles as advertised,overpriced. If they were all merino wool, perhaps they would be worth the price.

Great sock....this version without grips on sole..
**This new version does not have the grips on the soles as mentioned in the item description.
Previous versions did have chevron like pattern of silicone on the bottoms. (There won't be any chaturangas and down dogs in these without serious sliding :))
I got the bordeaux in these but I can't speak for the black version having the grips.
Great socks and warm for a bitter wind on the legs.
I'm interested in this sock in a navy and/ or wheat color.

Love these socks, they're so comfy. I love the fact that you can bunch them up around your calves. I can even wear my ugg boots over the top of them!!!

Lovely, but not worth the price!
These socks are absolutely lovely. I received a pair as a gift and love them so much. However, I was shocked when I went to buy more - I cannot believe the price! If these were more reasonably priced I would buy many pairs, but you can find similar socks much cheaper elsewhere. :(

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!!!!
