The End to Cold Feet!
I finally got fed up with having cold feet in the Winter. The athletic socks that I wore for the past several years just didn’t cut it any more. Those socks wore out at the heel quickly. I saw the stellar reviews for the Carhartt Artic Wool Boot socks and although expensive, I decided to give them a try. Best $20 I’ve ever spent. I’ve had these socks two months now and my feet have been super comfortable and toasty. My shoe size is 10-1/2 D to size 11, and the XL size fits perfectly. I highly recommend these socks, and I plan on reordering them, I-F they ever wear out. Five stars!
Great socks for winter camping
I wore these socks in the U.P. of Michigan camping in January. The high temperature was 1 degree and the low at night was 15 below. I couldn’t ask for a warmer or more comfortable sock. I wear a size 14 boot and the XL size socks fit great. These socks get a bit too warm for me if I wear them with my boots all day, so they are used to keep my feet warm in the tent and around camp. They are quite thick…my Merrell boots still fit, but my house slippers will not fit if I wear these socks.
Very tight at the top.
I got the large that fit me fine length wise but I’m going to agree with some other people that these things are not for the big or even moderately calved person. The top collar of the shock is less elastic than the rest of the sock which is actually where you would expect it to stretch more since its going to thicker parts of your leg. I’m a thin individual, very thin, talking 5′ 11″ and 120 pounds thin and these things are borderline too tight. They do better folded over on the top to keep them off the widest part of my calf.
Great, but took too long to get here.
I ordered these socks 2 weeks before Christmas and they ended up taking a month to get here. I wondered if they had to raise the sheep, sheer them, make the yarn, knit the socks, and THEN ship them to me !!! My husband fishes off the coast of California and although he hasn’t worn them yet (he would have if they had arrived on time!!) they will be great to keep his feet warm inside his fishing boots. I’m docking off 1 star because 1 month to receive a pair of socks is ridiculous. I would have gone to a store instead had I known.
Incredibly comfortable but not as durable as I expected.
These socks ended up lasting about 2 years with regular indoor wear. I never used them with any shoes and boots. Both socks now have inch wide holes near the soles. 20 bucks for two year lifespan of socks isn’t a ripoff but considering that I wasn’t too rough with them, its a bit disappointing that I’ll have to buy new ones. Next I’ll try out “Darn Tough” socks since those have a lifetime warranty.
Not as warm as I expected, my feet are always the first and only thing to get cold when the temp drops below 40 degrees so was hoping these would have done the job- nope. I’m a avid hunter and having cold feet just about ruins a hunt. Two days ago I went hunting and the temp was 34 degrees, I wore a thin pair of wool socks and the carhartt artic socks expecting to have warm feet, was very disappointed as my feet were cold after about 30 minutes in the duck blind. Probably will NOT buy another pair.
The best handsdown
I cant see how there can be any reviews that arent 5 star….I am a sock freak.These socks by themselves are unreal.If you add on a liner sock underneath I think I could handle the arctic cold no problem…Well worth the money..really a steal.There are warmer but to be able to wear with boots on these are the thickest you can go before you get into a house sock…
Seriously Thick, Seriously Warm
Bought these when weather was dropping to subzero temperatures at my school, and was not disappointed. As someone who has snowboarded in places from the Rockies, to Vermont, to Canada, to the Alps in Austria, I’ve never seen socks this thick (almost an inch of wool), nor as warm. Would suggest sock liners to wick any sweat from the feat, as that can actually make your feet cold (something you don’t want). Shipped quickly too, very well done.
