John Lewis Cotton Rich Knee High Socks, Pack of 3
Warm but fine enough to wear under shoes usually requiring tights. Covers unsightly gap between trousers and shoes often revealed when crossing legs. Stay up all day and wash beautifully.

Soft, warm and comfortable.
First bought these in Waitrose and loved them. They seem a little large to start with but so soft and comfy. After washing they do shrink down in size slightly like all socks seem to do. But still soft and warm to wear. Ideal under trouser when wearing ankle boots in this colder weather and they don't cut in at the top. Now have to buy more as my daughter wears mine all the time. Couldn't get them the next time I went shopping at my local store so ordered on line. Usual great service from JL.

Best I Have Found
I have had a lot of trouble finding black knee high socks that actually stay up but aren't too tight around my knees. I purchased one pack from each High Street retailer and tried them all, they were either so tight they cut off the blood supply or drove me mad having to pull them up every couple of minutes! I had seen these in my local JL but only in Navy. I ordered them online, picked them up at my chosen place, my local Waitrose. What a great order service. I am pleased to report that these socks are really nice and soft, wash well, are very comfortable and stay up! My only slight criticism is that for me they are slightly too long in the leg and the foot but I can cope with this (I'm 5'2" with size 4 feet and calf size 38 cms). I will definitely buy these again when I need more.

I wear a size 6 shoe, but I found these socks stretch significantly over the course of a day, and by the end they were bagging around my ankles--not a good look. They seem well made enough, but I would recommend buying a smaller size.

Large fitting knee highs
These are great socks and would warrant five stars for those with larger feet. But they are certainly not one size fits all, I take size 4 shoe but the socks would fit size 7 . I cannot wear them and just wish I'd bought one pair pack rather than three as they will remain in a drawer unused.
Please label these 'large size' John Lewis.

too large and wrinkle around ankles
I have size 6 feet, so these should have been fine, but had to keep pulling them up to avoid unsightly wrinkles.
