I bought these for my cold, frozen, always numb feet when fly fishing in the Colorado winter. I had high hopes, but when they arrived I knew they were going straight back. They are basically two pieces of fleece sewn together in one long continuous seam that runs along the top and wraps down the middle of your foot. As in the seam bunches up right ...

I mean, Im no clothing designer or seamstress, but I know these socks could have been sewn in a way where the seam doesnt run along the bottom.
Size is weird
A large size is a bit big on the foot but extremely tight at the top opening. So tight they leave a mark on my skin at the top. I'd call this a poor design and regret the purchase

Best Cold Weather Pairing with Packable Waders
I initially was skeptical on these fleese socks as I had tried wool socks in the packable waders with minimal benefit. After getting mild frostbite on my toes I finally went "What is there to lose?" and made the purchase, and wow these things are amazing! They allow me to fish colder conditions in the Skeena with the packable waders with ... Read Moreno issues. They do fit slightly big, I am a 10.5 US and have the large and there is some extra room, however, they still work well for me. If you use the packable waders in cold river conditions these are a must!
Great socks for winter fishing
I bought these to wear as a second sock layer in my Middle Fork waders. These pair perfectly and really help stabilize the boot. I have size 10.5 feet and the mediums are a perfect fit, so definitely on the large size. With a layer underneath these, my feet are totally warm in cold water. I'll be wearing these every time I head out in cold wea... Read Morether.
Nice and warm
I was having trouble keeping my toes warm in my duck hunting waders. Adding socks just made the boots to tight and still cold. I saw these in the fly fishing section and figured they would work just as well for duck hunting. I was right! They fit great and can be pulled over your wading pant with ease preventing the pant from riding up when pulling... Read More on your waders. My toes have not gotten cold again since I've been wearing the oversock. The lowest temps I've been out in was 18* and snowing while standing waist deep in partially frozen water before the sun came up. Still warm toes!! I was worried about the seem down the middle when hiking but have had absolutely no issues with it. I will be using these for their intended use as soon as duck season is over. Highly recommend.
Toasty Feet All Day
I just took these up to a high elevation stream in the N.C. mountains last weekend where the water temperature was in the high 40s and was impressed at how warm my feet stayed after standing in the stream for several hours. I read the reviews that these ran large so while I wear size 9 shoes, I ordered down a size (medium) and they fit perfectly. ... Read MoreThese over socks are thick, well constructed and my feet were never cold or uncomfortable all day. If you want to focus on the fish and not your feet, get these.
Incredibly Oversized Over Socks
I wear a men's size 11 1/2 shoe, and after referencing the size chart I purchased these over socks in size large. They are so absurdly large that a large pair is more tailored for a size 14 shoe. I've reordered them I am small, and I think this will be the appropriate size now. This is the 2nd time in my 20+ years as a Patagonia customer ... Read Morethat I've had an issue.
Bought these for a recent fishing trip to Montana. What happens to cold feet when they are cramped? They get colder faster. Unfortunately, these are So bulky that they do the opposite of what they are supposed to. I would not recommend these to anyone for anything. Also the sizing chart is way off. Initially bought mediums based on size chart and r... Read Moreeturned for smalls. Could have slept in the mediums.
