Do you think a larger size would make a difference?

I have noticed that my left sock falls down 3 or 4 times during the day but my right sock stays put.  I guess my calves are different sizes.

They don't have as many size increments as actual shoes do, but socks don't need quite so many increments. They have 5 different sizes which is as many as is really needed, and is much better than those who only do "S/M/L" or even worse "one size fits all".

And don't even think about skipping the few bucks extra for the OTC, totally worth it.

We got some complaints about green which was bright and like an emerald but we changed it to dark forest green. Our socks are really thin and they keep really cool in hot days but still working on thicker socks.

I need a pair of those forest green socks

OTC forest green socks are the ones I use the most, they match close to everything.

Is the "Clemetsen green" to dark? I mean, is it so dark that it may look black? I can't find pictures of the socks on the net, except the ones on Viccel's homepage. I'm not a fan of to colorful socks and judging by pictures I find "Forest green" to bright.

 

Thank you.

3/10, would not read again.

Actually you cant find the color on the web coz name belongs to our customer Mr.Clemetsen who recommended us darker green and who sent us some samples and after his support we decided to give his name to the color.

As you know we are producer from cotton to ready product, If you have special color we can work on them too.

Perhaps i could donate my 1000 pairs of unworn Viccel socks to some needy peasants who will not notice their inferior quality.

ye anywayyyyyyyyyz mr rich guy... i disagree... their great socks!

Would you guys recommend Summer or Winter weight?

 

How long does it take to deliver to the US?

 

How did you go about ordering your size?Exact shoe size,size bigger,smaller?

post #582 of 824

Just received a metric crapton of socks from Viccel last night.  Went with winter weight OTC in every color, and a whole bunch of grey, charcoal and navy blue.  They looked enormous at first, but they actually fit perfectly.  No slipping, no itchiness, no sweating.  I've yet to see how durable they are with regards to permanent press wash/dry cycles, but so far color me impressed.

 

My only minor gripe (which has already been mentioned) is that the photographs on the website aren't really representative of how the colors look in real life.  The grey extra-thick socks, for example, show up on the website as having two different shades of grey, but are solid grey IRL (not two-tone).  I agree with the assessment of other posters regarding the color accuracy (or lack thereof) of the various shades of grey, Clemetsen green, Egyptian blue, etc.

 

I haven't had any of the shipping issues other people stated having.  I got the socks within two days of shipping (to NJ, USA).

I went with winter weight.  I think general consensus is that summer weight is too thin.

 

US delivery times vary.  Some people have stated having waited up to four weeks.  I got mine in two days.  I think this variability has less to do with the actual shipping process, and more to do with how long the package gets stuck at customs.

 

I ordered based on my exact AE PA sizing.

Purchased many pairs of socks from viccle about a year ago. Most formed holes, unfortunately.

I've been purchasing Viccel socks for about a year as well and none have formed any holes. 

 

I tend to walk around barefoot when I'm at home, so perhaps a lot of users walk around in their socks? Or they simply don't have enough socks in their rotation?

I don't have any that have formed holes, but I also wash these by hand - I think I have just about every color and every style. I only wear the over the calf now.
