    I bought a few pair. They are nice socks. Thin material - the thinnest dress socks I own. They stay up. The green is f'in green...bright green...go to hell green. The navy and cream color are useful and the price is amazing.
    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 have just recieved the socks. I ordered the mid-calf in green and red. They appear to be very high quality material and the colours are rather nice (the claret is rich and the green is a dark, foresty colour). They are quite thin and allow the feet to breathe well.

    However, they are doing a lot of sliding down after short periods of wear. I am a UK size 9 and thus ordered a Euro size 43. It's not a massive problem but I prefer that my socks stay up. I shall wash them soon and then see how that turns out. Next time I order, I would be very much inclined to go for the over-the-calf as they may stay up better.

    I took a chance a few weeks ago on two pair, I must admit they are a bit on the thin side (will be ordering some of the new ones), but the color does hold and they do stay up. No beating the quality / price for my money. Well done!!

    Glad to learn that you liked colors and fabric of socks but if you have any problem please contact us via e-mail.

    I got a couple pairs of these socks, also. I must say, they are quite thin... I thought at first I had only received one pair. However, they fit quite well and are comfortable. Shipping was surprisingly fast coming from Turkey.

    Just wanting to update: after a single wear, the socks get loose thus causing some slippage as noted in my original post below, but this problem corrects itself when you wash and air dry the socks, which causes the socks to return to their original shape and stay up.

    Knowing this, I would definitely buy Viccel again!



    I bought 2 pairs of OTC socks, one red and one purple.

    The colors are bright and vibrant, and continue to remain so after a few washes. The material is very thin and feels very tough.

    My only concern is that the socks seem to be very loose now after a few wears, and are starting to fall down which is absolutely unacceptable. This is a shame, because I love the colors and the material. I just wish that they would maintain their shape better.

    Yes you are right , the thickest socks are under the autumn winter section as over the calf and midcalf.

    I ordered my socks on the 2nd Nov and received a mail today to say they were posted out. Pretty slow - 8 days from payment to postage. Short stocked?

    Mine were posted after a week. I did recieve an email apology, stating low stock.

    I also think the conversion is off. Can Kemal tell me which size he uses as a base to convert from? I am guessing it is Euro-sizes and wonder what he would advise if I said I was 43.5 (UK size 9) and whether he intends to add UK sizes in the future?

    Thanks.

    First of all I have to apologize for the latency. We are sending the socks to over 20 countries. This time we got more order than we expected. Especially repeating orders from our old customers. As an example one of our customer bought 1 pair in his first order he ordered 33 pairs in his next order. Too much order caused latency in the organization of PAP(packing and posting). We posted 3-8 days later after ordering. This is our fault and we are sorry about it. But we fixed the misses in organization of PAP and we guarantee that will not happen again If no exception occurs. I want to tell you somethings about our stocks. We have to have enough stock if we dont have enough stock, production would take 1 month(yarn to packed socks). As you know we have 2 season(summer-winter) 2 type(mid-calf and OTC) 14 different colors and their sizes as a combination its more than hundreds individual socks. We are arranging those. It can be possible only when you have enough stock. As a brief increasing in order in a short time caused latency in th organization PAP. Really sorry about that we made required fixes and wont happen again. Always we do care about every single review and comments of you to catch the perfection. BareSolid, Thanks for warning about size system, we have added the UK size system too. Thank you for your interest.
