My mom absolutely loves these! She had a bad stroke some years ago, so it's a little scary walking to the bathroom at night over smooth floors- but these have her feeling super safe! We bought a pack and 2 of the 3 pairs magically disappeared, but she loves them so much, I'm taking the "L" and buying more since they're so worth it.
These are clearly very well made socks. They are comfortable and don't grip too hard on your legs. But they are not thick, about like a medium weight standard sock. When it's chilly, I can't wear them. So, if you're in a relatively warm situation, I would highly recommend them. If not, I wouldn't. If the folks who make them made a thicker version, I'd buy them.
The sock are for my mother who is 85 and sometimes she slips on her wood floors and with these socks it help her not slip.
