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!!!!

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....
