Ouch. It sounds like there's some major fit issues there.. Too bad you don't like this pattern, as I'm sure every piece of footwear you could make would be welcome :-). I've got 11D myself, so I can relate to those problems.. Maybe you should wear them a bit as slippers, as you may well get used to the feel and the look and get an extra footwear option??

Very interesting review. Sorry the pattern wasn't quite right for you, but you gave us a mini-civics lesson with this review. Even with granddaughters who live in Japan (and are half Japanese), I was not informed about these slipper socks.

Maybe they will grow on you. They are very unique and I'm sure your students will be impressed. I am. Nice work!

Too bad they are not more comfortable, because they would be fun otherwise.
