My Dr. Scholl's Socks are Bad

December 16th, 2015 at 12:17 pm

I am really, really unimpressed with the new Dr. Scholl's socks that I bought. I bought two 3-packs at $14 each and each pair I have worn has been down my heel and halfway down my foot in the amount of time it takes to walk from the house to the car. They simply will not stay up.

It ticks me off. I expected the Dr. Scholl's name to live up to its reputation. After all, they make excellent shoes and inserts. But apparently they haven't a clue how to make good socks. Unfortunately you can't tell until you actually wear them. There doesn't seem to be enough elastic in the cuff.

It isn't just them either. The last set I got from Reebok and the last sets I got from Hanes and Fruit of the Loom like to slip down, too. I never used to have this problem. Are they just making crappy socks these days no matter the brand name?

I really don't like throwing money away like that. The only socks I haven't had major problems with this year or last are the big fuzzy slipper socks from Costco, but they are hard to get into a shoe. This is why I'm trying to learn to knit socks properly.

Anyone know if Kmart's Joe Boxer brand of socks stays up where it belongs? Or of any decent brand that does? I don't mind paying a little more if they actually work. They just can't be wool as I'm allergic.

    Agh, I hate when socks do that!

    I had to check what the ones I'm wearing are called, because I really like them. They stay up really well. And they offer good support to AS, who has plantar fasciitis.

    Puma Pro Elite. Highly recommended.

    Thank you, CJ. I will see if I can find those. Do you happen to now what store you got them from?

    Socks that do that are so annoying!

    No, I just picked them up randomly, so it would have been Marshalls or Target. I never bothered to go for a certain brand before, but I like these a lot, so I'll probably look for the same ones again.

  5. LuckyRobin Says:

    CJ--I tried looking them up and it said that those ones have been discontinued. *sighs* I hope I find something soon, though. It is too cold out to have socks that don't do the job.

    Oh, that's a bummer. Maybe Puma's got other good socks.
