I recently tried again to find wool Vim&Vigr sox, size medium, that would not scrunch my toes. I saw the new design and ordered it with high hopes. The wool sox I had a few years ago did not pull back against my toes and seemed to have a more roomy toe box. I am thinking they did not have as much nylon thread in them as more recent wool socks do, at least in the roomy toe boxes that used to be on some sox. My nylon socks purchased some time ago I quickly had to give away to my granddaughter who is a nurse. I loved the bright colors and many choices available, but didn't like the very tight stretch against my feet. They were impossibly tight against my toes and I had to keep taking off my shoes and pulling out the toe box. Your cotton sox have the least amount of nylon and seem to work the best, but I love wearing wool because it doesn't get moist like cotton does. I have very wide feet and a "Morton's toe", with the second toe being longer than the big toe. I have discovered that certain Vim&Vigr knit patterns are roomier for my feet than others, such as the cotton diamond deco M/L. Not all your cotton sox I have tried stretch like they do, accommodating my wide feet. Maybe it's the stretchy horizontal pattern. Before putting on my shoes, I must pull the toe of each sock out about 2 or 3 inches longer than my feet to keep my toes from hurting. Some designs pull back against my toes almost immediately, but others stay comfortable for a long period of time. I would really be happy to find Vim&Vigr sox that are comfortable for wide feet. I wear your sox all day every day and they do wonders for my legs in keeping down swelling. In that way they are terrific.
So comfortable, energizes my legs!
I ordered the S/M for large calves. My calves are 17 inches around and my shoe size is 7 in Women's. These are comfortable and not too tight that they cut off all circulation. I am 5'4" and have pretty short legs and the socks aren't too tall.
Love that you can buy these in wide-calf, and they are really cute.
