      Warm and toasty Totes

      I have a few pairs of Totes slipper socks and I seem to acquire a new pair (or two) every Christmas, that' just as well really, as these slipper socks tend t last me about the twelve month mark before they start to wear thin and start to get a bit too baggy round the foot and ankle area as I wear them so much, especially during the solder winter months. I have noticed that TK Maxx are selling Totes socks in a range of colours I have not seen before - fluorescent shades, which look really bright and are very eye catching. My own Totes slipper socks are in much more sedate colours and mine are in light pink, mauve and beige. I also own several pairs of slippers but I can find slippers slightly cumbersome and I find that wearing Totes socks just easier. I have a lot of laminate flooring in my house and that's one of the main reasons I love to wear these slipper socks as each sole has a number of round shaped plastic bobbles which means that your feet kind of grip onto the floor and prevent you from sliding around all over the place. My daughter also has her own kiddie's Totes slipper socks and we both wear them manly during the colder weather. They are incredibly warm and comfortable and feel lovely and snuggly on your feet. As they are socks and not slippers, they obviously sit higher up the leg and ankle than a pair of slippers do - this means that they have the advantage of keeping not only my feet nice and warm, but also the bottom part of my legs and ankles. I wear my Totes so often that they do wear out after a while and eventually the small rounded plastic bobbles on the base do wear off or pop off, especially after frequent washing. I wash my Totes at forty degrees and I either line dry them or I pop them over a hot radiator. I would never recommend trying to tumble dry Totes slipper socks as I think this would most probably completely ruin the plastic bobbly bits on the feet. There are imitation Totes slipper socks out there and I confess that I have bought a few pairs of these in the past (cheaper than Totes) but in all honesty I do think that Totes are the best value for money as they last far longer than the imitations, they are much more comfortable an they basically just feel a lot nicer to wear. No doubt I will be receiving more Totes slipper socks for Christmas this year (at least I hope I do) and I can really recommend them.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Totes Slipper Socks are amazing

        I really don't think I am exaggerating when I say that Totes Slipper Socks are more of a necessity than a luxury in my life. I am really not a winter person at all and hate being cold and there really isn't anything worse than having cold feet, so during the winter months, I literally live in these socks.

        ~The Product~
        Totes Slipper Socks are really thick, cosy socks that are available in a range of sizes and colours, for both men, women and children. I first received a pair of these when I was a teenager off my parents for Christmas and the instant warmth and cosiness meant that I immediately fell in love with them, and I have worn them ever since.

        The difference between these socks, and a regular pair of warm socks is that these have an anti-slip sole to them, which is fantastic, especially if you have laminate or tiled flooring at home.

        At the moment, I have 3 pairs of these, and after a long day at work, the first thing I do when I walk in the door, is kick off my shoes and put a pair of my Totes on, and I immediately feel relaxed and cosy. I am not a fan of slippers generally so these are the next best thing for me. As they are only a woollen material, they are not suitable for outdoor use at all, but indoors, they keep your feet warm and toasty, and the anti-slip base means they help prevent accidents too as you won't slide across floors and injure yourself.

        I literally wear these to death and due to the excellent quality, these last a good few months, even with daily use, before they start to wear thin, and eventually a few little holes start to appear. When this happens, I simply throw them out and replace them with a new pair as I just couldn't live without these now.

        ~The Price~
        You can get cheaper versions of these, but I stick to the genuine Totes brand as I have found they last longer and a pair of women's totes will cost you around £8.00, which I think is excellent value for money as no other range of socks will possibly keep your feet warmer and nor will they last longer.

        ~Conclusion~
        I really would be lost without my Totes Slipper Socks now as they are just the warmest, cosiest socks on the planet. During the winter months I really do live in these and have even been known to wear them to work under boots to ensure my feet don't get cold during the day! You would do well to prize these off my feet and so therefore they come with a huge thumbs up from me!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Cosy toes and feet

        I love my Totes and have several pairs. I also have slippers but my Totes socks are usually the thing that I put on my feet when I have had a bath and put my pyjamas on because they are so cosy on my feet.

        I also have wooden floors so not only do they keep my feet warm but because they also have a slip resistant tread on them they are better than normal socks for stopping me slipping on the floor.

        Comparing them to normal slippers isn't right because other than how they look they aren't really socks at all because you wouldn't wear them with shoes because they are far too thick for that though I have actually worn mine with my wellies when it is really cold outside.

        They are much thicker than normal socks and they come in loads of different designs and patterns. I have woven ones that are just all cable knit but I have others which also have a faux fir lining. All the ones that I have though are really warm and cosy to wear.

        The best thing about them is that they keep my feet warm but they don't over heat them. Sometimes with my slippers when I am wearing them I end up having to take them off because my feet get too warm but these don't get my feet too hot.
        They also don't make my feet sweat so they don't get smelly either.

        All mine are a one size fits all from size 4 to size 7 and I think they fit really well without being tight and uncomfortable. If the weather is really cold outside then you can also wear them over thinner normal socks and this extra insulation makes them super warm and cosy.

        Totes range in price from around £6 to £15 depending on design, pattern and thickness. Every pair that I have ever owned have been good quality and they also wash really well. I wear them loads and wash and dry them in the tumble drier and they remain their shape and keep their warmth for absolutely ages.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A useful pair

          Knowing how often my feet get cold my husband rather kindly bought me a pair of slipper socks for Christmas and I have been wearing them virtually every night since. The brand of socks that he gave me were these Totes and he gave me a berry pair which rather suited my dark red pyjamas. These socks really have been an essential item over the winter period and I actually prefer wearing them to slippers so I was very pleased with this gift.

          These socks are essentially the same height as a standard sock but have a very thick fabric composition which makes them feel slightly heavier than a day to day sock. The socks are made in a mixture of acrylic (86%) and nylon (4%) and this gives them a soft and stretchy feel. On the bottom of each of my socks is a series of little plastic slip resistant sections together with the 'totes' logo and this ensures that when I am wearing these socks around the house on hard floors I am not likely to slip. As mentioned, I have these socks in the berry colour however I understand that they can be purchased in a wide variety of colours including blue and pink and this is great in my opinion as it ensures that you can buy a pair to match your nightwear or dressing gown. The sizing of these socks is interesting as they only come in one size however I have found this more than adequate for my size six feet and can see them fitting larger sizes due to their stretchiness.

          I generally like to wear these socks at all times of day when I am at home regardless of what I am doing and like the way that I can place them conveniently inside my handbag when we are visiting family or friends and thus use them at other peoples houses. The socks feel incredibly warm and cosy and I have had no issues with wearing them on our cold kitchen tiled floor as they keep my feet feeling a comfortable temperature. The only time when they become too hot is when I wear them to bed at night at which point I will sometimes wake up in the morning with particularly hot feet but as I often have very cold extremities this is a negative that I personally don't mid experiencing.

          Looking after these socks is a doddle and personally I prefer them to a pair of slippers as they can be thrown into a cool wash with regularity and don't have the tendency, as some slippers do, to trap body odours. I like to wash these socks on a 30° wash cycle and then hang them out to air naturally. The thickness of these socks does mean that they take slightly longer to dry than a standard sock but I find that by leaving them on the airer all day and then placing them on a warm radiator at night my socks are generally completely dry within 24 hours.

          As I didn't personally buy these socks I have had to have a look online to find out how much they cost. Prices vary greatly depending on where you buy these socks with them costing anywhere from £4 on Amazon to £6 on the Totes website. For such a useful pair of socks this is a price that I would consider paying and even if I only get one winters use out of them I will certainly be buying another pair next winter.

          I really like these socks and they really are a saving grace on cold hard floors therefore they do come recommended. As a result of this review these socks score an excellent five stars from me.

          I hope this review has been of some help and thanks for reading! x

            Disadvantages

            Totes Slipper Socks

            One of my favourite thing about winter is the fact that I get to be snug again in my pyjamas, onsies, dressing gowns and slippers. I absolutely love when it is a cold and wet day outside and I can come home and get into my lounging clothes.

            I have tons of slippers and slipper socks as I hate my feet being cold and I just find them so cosy and comfy for walking around the house especially as the downstairs in my house is laminate and tiles in the kitchen which can be chilly to walk on.

            I have always loved Totes slipper socks and usually treat myself to a new pair every year or so. They are quite expensive but I don't mind paying a little bit extra because you can feel how good quality they are. I have cheaper slipper socks which are fine and feel nice but the difference between them and the totes is noticeable.

            The last pair I bought myself in January were on sale and I paid £10 for them but they usually retail for £16. The reason these are a little bit more expensive than some others is because they contain wool in with the other fibres. There is a large amount of acrylic in them but don't let this put you off because they don't feel cheap and scratchy on my skin.

            Taking care of them is easy. Because they aren't in shoes you don't need to wash them every time you actually wear them but when you do you can machine wash them and I always put mine in the tumble drier and they always come out fine but I always use a lower heat.

            One of the things that I really like about totes is the slip resistant tread that they have on the underneath of them. This makes a huge difference when walking on slippery surfaces such as wooden floors and tiles. Slipper socks without the treat might feel cosy on your feet but they are a bit lethal when it comes to walking on these slippery surfaces.

            The socks are thick but my feet never get too hot in them because although they keep my feet snug they also let them breathe so I can wear these all day when I am having a lounging pyjama day without having to take them off when I get too hot.

            Totes also come in a huge variety of different colours and designs with a colour and a pattern to suit everyone. They are also available for both men and women and children as well so you can get some socks for the whole family.

            They make a lovely gift especially at Christmas and they look that little bit more luxurious because they come in a proper box and not just loose. I think they are suitable for everyone as there isn't anyone who doesn't like to feel snug and cosy.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              These totes are amazing

              Totes have been around for absolutely ages. I always used to have a pair of Totes slipper sox for Christmas from a distant auntie and would just tend to put them away in my underwear drawer and eventually throw them out when I had a sort out. I think I used to regard them as quite old fashioned and just not trendy enough for me.

              A few months ago I was out shopping looking for something to buy for my daughter as a small birthday gift. I had bought her some tickets for a show which were quite expensive so I just wanted to buy something small and box shaped so I could attach the tickets to it and then wrap them up together. I went into my local Brantano which is a shop I love and will always go and have a mooch even if I'm not buying anything. I saw a stand by the door selling Totes and other similar items and went to have a look.

              The Totes were all reduced and I chose the chunky striped ones which were reduced from £10.00 to £7.99 but you could buy two pairs for £12. I thought I would take advantage of this offer as recently my feet tend to get cold really quickly and seem to take a long time to warm up again. There was a lot of different colours and styles to choose from but in the end I bought a pair of blue and white ones for my daughter as I know she has a blue dressing gown and a pair of brown and beige ones for me as these are my colours. They came in a sturdy box with a cut out at the front so you could clearly see what colour they were.

              I tried them on as soon as I got home and I must say they immediately felt so soft and cosy. They are one size and are suitable for sizes 3-8. I am a size five and they are plenty big enough and I could even wear them over a pair of thin socks when it is really cold without them being too tight. There is plenty of room around my toes and they come up to midway between my ankle and mid calf on me, but this would all depend on how long your legs are. They are ribbed all over which makes them fit so well and the ribbing seems to be slightly tighter at the top so they don't fall down. They are 95% acrylic and 5% elastane which gives them a bit of stretch when you are getting them on and off.

              The little plastic dots on the sole do really give a good grip and you feel that if you did step on a slippery surface they would help you to stay safe and not slip over on laminate or wet floors. I will admit that they are not exactly the height of fashion accessory but at my age I go for comfort over appearance. My daughter also loves them and thinks they are 'cool and retro'. She has almost worn hers out and has asked me to get her some more if I see some on offer.

              I only wear these in the house as I don't think they are not really suitable for going outdoors, however I would think stepping outside to put the bins out or getting something out of the garden wouldn't do much damage to them. These slipper sox keep my feet so warm and cosy and when it is cold I keep them on until the last possible minute before I go to bed as I couldn't wear them for bed as they are far too warm. I wash them at 30 degrees and I have also hand washed them a few times and they have always dried quickly and kept their original shape. The one thing I would say is that when I did hand wash them I noticed that some of the colour ran out into the sink so I would be careful what you wash them with if you put them in the washing machine.

              I think they give you so much more flexibility than slippers as they are so secure on your feet and you can also curl up on the sofa without worrying that your slippers might be dirty or uncomfortable if they have hard edges and you sit with your feet tucked underneath you like I usually do. You really can't feel that you are wearing them apart from having lovely cosy toes!

              There are other cheaper versions of these on the market which I have never tried so I can't say whether they are any good or not, but to get these chunky Totes for this price I think it is well worth paying the price as you know you are buying something that will last and wear well. They are available in womens, mens and childrens sizes and colours,with the childrens ones being very bright and cheerful. The ones I bought I would say are one of the thickest pairs but they do pairs of varying thickness and designs.

              In addition to these slipper sox Totes also do umbrellas, gloves, knitwear, sandals and slippers and are widely available from department stores, some shoe shops and online. I seemed to have noticed these quite often recently so whether this is because I have a pair of whether they are making a revival I'm not sure!

              I would recommend these slipper sox as they are warm, comfortable and washable and lovely to wear around the house and award them 5 out of 5 stars.

                Disadvantages

                Thanks for Reading :)

                == Totes Slipper Socks ==

                I have some totes slipper socks huddled in my sock draw and have had my pairs for a good year or so, they may have developed some bobbles but other than that they still manage to keep my feet nice a cosy and at the same time still manage to provide sufficient grip when walking on my laminated kitchen floor.


                == Price ==


                I have seen these a few times at my local Boots superstore for around £8, but I have seen them around online from £6. Although they are a little pricey for a pair of socks, I personally think they are worth that little extra cash because they are long lasting and they are socks and slippers in one!


                == Design & My Experience ==


                I have the simple black coloured ones mainly because I like to wear them in my shoes when I pop outside the house so I like to wear black socks as it's a colour that can go with anything. The socks are also available in a range of colours and patterns, some colours include; berry pink, green, purple and blue. The socks are nice and long and can reach up my ankles to not only keep my feet but also my ankles nice and warm and comfy.

                The soxs (as stated on the packaging) come neatly packaged in pink box packaging. The box packaging is pretty and is designed well to give the customer a sense of the high standard of quality inside the box.

                The socks have a well designed rubber grip soles located underneath the socks, which are leaf shaped and make it look nice and almost trendy! In my opinion it's a nice change from the boring dot grips that I have seen in other slipper socks. The brand logo is also located near the grips and apart from the underneath leaf grip patterns the upper area looks like a normal sock.

                I personally find that the rubber grips are well implemented as I have no trouble walking on my laminated kitchen floor, while in the past I found wearing normal thin socks or tights made the floor seem slippery. Therefore these are also great for walking on tile floors, as not only do they provide grip but they keep feet nice and warm despite the cold flooring.

                I do sometimes wear my slippers on top of these just to make sure I do bang my foot when running around with my nephew! As these do not have any cushion protection for accidents or if you bang your feet.

                I have a size 5 pair and find they fit perfectly for my size 5 feet, they are very comfortable and keep my feet nice and warm during the cold winter days, which also helps when walking on cold hard floors. The material thickness is not too thick or too thin, instead it has the perfect thickness to keep the feet warm and comfortable without if feeling cramped or bulky.


                == Conclusion ==


                Overall these are great sock slippers; they keep my feet warm and cosy and prevent my feet from slipping. I have had mine for about a year and the grip is still good enough to prevent slips which illustrates that paying £6-8 price tag is more than reasonable due to its longevity. They come in a range of colours and are suitable for both men and women, which is great as I tend to get a pair for my partner nearly every Christmas! As soon as my pairs wear away I would not hesitate to buy myself another pair they are that good.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Excellent slipper socks, the original and best in my humble opionion - great for all the family!

                  These totes slipper socks are sported by everyone in my family, from my 2 year old daughter to my husband with his size 11 feet, and all of us in between. They are a godsend with cold laminate flooring, as they provide warmth and comfort while being non-slip and not looking like slippers.

                  The quality is very good - we have some pairs that have been going for years! They bobble slightly when washed a few times, but still look fine, and the non-slip pattern and logo underneath remains perfect in both appearance and function after hundreds of washes!

                  There is a good choice of designs, and they often come in boxes which makes them ideal as gifts for christmas or winter birthdays. The Totes brand is generally quite well-regarded, and they are quite widely available on the high street and the internet (although not as widely as they used to be as Boots no longer seem to stock them at Christmas, which is a shame).

                  Overall, they are a useful and reliable product, and although there are countless similar products on the market I like the quality, packaging and classic brand image of Totes ones, so I will continue to buy them - highly recommended!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  A great brand of slipper socks

                  When I was in my late teenage years, every CHristmas I received a pair of Totes Slipper Socks in my stocking and I couldn't wait to get them on. As I got into my twenties I tended to receive perfume instead, but last year, I received a pair of Totes slipper socks and it made me realise what I was missing!

                  Totes slipper socks are quite widely available online and in stores and depending on the style, you can pay upwards of £6 for a pair of ladies slipper socks. What makes these socks great are firstly, they are cosy, you can put them on over you own socks, and your feet will feel really warm and cosy all evening, even in the coldest of weather outside. Secondly, they are ideal for tiled and wooden floors and you can lounge around the house without slipping on the floors as they slipper sock have a slip resistant sole giving you grip as you walk around the house. I received an original pair of Tote slippers, so although they may not be one of the more fancy, colourful patterned designs that Totes now produce, they are just fine for wearing around the house. I'm not terribly worried what they look like, as long as they keep my feet warm when I take my shoes off and that I don't have to worry about slipping, like I would if I were to lounge around simply in my day to day socks.

                  The original totes are available in a variety of colours, as can be seen from the top of the screen and I received a pair of pink ones, in fact I think they were actually called Berry as they are a slightly deeper pink that the one shown above. All totes come in beautifully packaged in a lovely pink box, which does give the sense that these slipper socks (or sox as they are called on the label) are of good quality.

                  The ladies slipper socks actually only come in one size but should readily fit those women with a shoe size of 4 -7 very comfortably. I am a size 5 and I find that they are a comfortable fit offering me room to move, and I am able to pull them over my day socks in the evening, but at the same time, they aren't wide on my leg and they are a good fit.

                  Although I like to have a pair of proper slippers in case I needed to pop outside to put a dirty nappy in the bin or get something from the car in the evening, these socks are perfect for around the house, and unlike boot style slippers, I feel you can snuggle up easier on the sofa with these socks as they aren't bulky and don't get in the way. When I get into bed, I take off my day socks and just keep these socks on and they keep my feet warm all night, especially during those really cold winter evenings.

                  I got these last Christmas, and I would say that they are only starting to look a bit tired when you take a closer look at the sole of the sock. The slip resistant sole is starting to fade away a little, but they still offer me enough grip on my tiled and wooden floors. Although I think I will drop some hints for another pair this Christmas I certainly wouldn't be chucking these socks out as they still keep my feet cosy and warm, which is what I want from them, and I can simply put on my slipper boots when I need to go outdoors.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Posh socks in a box which make nice presents

                    I got a pair of these as a Christmas present off my sister-in-law a few years ago. I don't know were she got them from but they retail for £7 a pair (although you can find them cheaper, I bought my niece a pair from TK Maxx for £4).

                    The socks come in one size- womens or mens fit, are calf length and are available in a range of colours- mine are pink. The sizing is handy, for example I wasn't sure what size to get my niece. Also they come gift boxed so they look posh.

                    They aren't slippers so that's a bit misleading- non slip socks is a better description. The socks themselves are thick and comfy with 'rubber' treads on the bottom to stop you slipping in them, to be honest I've never slipped over in a pair of socks even with having hard floors. The rib cuff is soft and doesn't dig in but is tight enough to hold them up, they fit snug and haven't lost their shape- probably due to the lycra, they're 85% acrylic, 13% nylon, 2% lycra elastane.

                    The socks are machine washable but at 40%, I only wash at that temp anyway, also you can't put them in a dryer.

                    I love slopping around in these, they're so warm. I think they're hard wearing the cuff hasn't gone nor have holes appeared, although they do wear a bit at the heel after a while and some of the grips have peeled off but on the whole they're in good nick. I do wear them with boots I find them particularly great as welly socks, they keep my feet warm.

                    Would I recommend them- yes but although long lasting and comfy the price puts me off so 4 stars from me.

                      A great winter/lazy weekend sock to run about the house in

                      Totes Slipper Socks

                      I hate to admit it but I have already started wearing my Totes slipper socks this year - it is definitely getting close to winter!

                      Totes

                      Totes slipper socks are THE BEST slipper socks on the market, their brand and accessories have been on the market for over 25 years. The brand originated in America, as totes » ISOTONER® Corporation. They sell Totes products all over the high street and supermarket and they sell very practical as well as stylist accessories such as socks, gloves and umbrellas.

                      My Totes Slipper Socks

                      The slipper socks come in a compact, square, little cardboard box, which is white in colour. The front of the box is cut out so that you can see and feel the socks inside. These are rolled up into a cylinder with the bottom grip of the socks on show.

                      My Grandma bought me my pair on Totes socks, they are the original style - there are a very large variety of sock designs and materials to choose from - and the colour is dark green / emerald, my favourite. The socks are no at all like your average sock; for one thing they are a lot thicker, which is why they are perfect for winter wear.

                      The socks are 3/4 length, that come up to just below my knee, depending on the width of your leg they will sit higher or lower on your leg. The socks are made of 85 % Acrylic, 13 % Nylon and 2 % LYCRA® elastane material which make them both flexible and comfy but more importantly they grip your leg and don't fall down when you walk in them.

                      The main sock area is woven together and the top of the sock has a ribbed band that holds them up. The unique selling point of Totes Slipper Socks is the distinctive rubber grips present on the sole of the slippers. This is designed to be slip resistant and so is great for when you're running around the house and when you have laminate flooring like me it can be a great asset! The rubber grip on the bottom is made up of tiny little rectangles and also spells out Totes as a branding mechanism.

                      These socks are amazingly comfy and I love throwing them on over my jeans when I get in from work. They are really warm and cosy and I find are a necessity for when it starts getting cold like it is at the moment. These socks are 'one size fits all' and so comes in Men's and Women's and Children's sizes. I am a size 7 and they fit me very well without being too tight or too baggy on my feet.

                      These socks are also machine washable, after a large number of washes the grips underneath can split slightly (though I am talking 1 year + timeframes) however they are socks at the end of the day! Totes original slipper socks cost around £7 but prices vary greatly in different shops and with the range of styles available. These are great as a personal treat as well as for gifts. Highly recommended, I love my
                      Toasty Totes.

                      Disadvantages

                      wouldnt be without em

                      Blimey, these have been going years havent they? If you are reading this review in an attempt to decide whether or not to buy some of these socks then all I can say is...' why on earth have you left it so long? Your poor feet!'

                      I was still living at home with my mum when I got my first pair of these, I dont remember if they were a gift or what age I was but I remember the bright pink socks so vividly. I remember that they were the first things I changed into when I got home from college and I used to sit on the sofa picking at the thick grips on the base of the sock.

                      Since then, I must have had over ten pairs of totes slipper socks and still wear them all the time. They are great and I wouldnt be without them. My favourite ones are a dark purple set closely followed by a lovely snowy grey pair. I wear these instead of slippers sometimes but also, in winter wear with slippers too, they are thin enough for you to do this but you really dont need to as they are very snuggly on their own. The grips are surprisingly strong and despite taking some hammering the grip remains strong for quite some time. I always get at least a year about mine and normally own really bin old pairs as I normally get a new pair for Christmas.

                      They wash really well and have their shape and colour, and not really bobbled much at all. You dont have to wash them each time you wear them (I hope, cos I dont!) I get a good few wears out of mine before I pop them in the wash.

                      What I would say though is I cant sleep in mine, my feet get far too hot and sweaty under these and a duvet but they are great for camping where its a little chillier.

                      They are one size fits all so they do have quite a bit of strecth in them I am a size 5 and mine fit perfectly.

                      They are available from lots of different stockists but look out for them on markets as you usually get them for a really good price.

                        Disadvantages

                        Recommended.

                        I have a number of pairs of Totes Slipper Socks, but my most recent pair are some that I bought about three months ago. Totes Slipper Socks come in a variety of styles and shades, but most recently I bought a two pack of them which came in a package together. I bought them from The Sock Shop (www.sockshop.co.uk) and they cost me £16.00 for a twin pack - which obviously equates to £8.00 per pair. I know that this isn't the best price that Totes can be bought for, but I did like the style that were on offer and so I was happy to pay £16.00 for the two pairs.

                        These Totes are called "Ladies Totes Natural Marl Rib & Stripe Socks Twin Pack" and they are a nice lilac colour. One of the pairs is lilac and white stripes, and the other pair is all over lilac with a ribbed pattern going lengthways down the sock. The come only in one size and as they are stretchy it is a case of one size fits all - and they certainly fit me comfortably. They are made of a very soft and fluffy material which consist of acrylic, wool, polyester and elastane - and so this means that they are stretchy but also soft and robust. On the bottom of the socks are rubbery pieces which mean that the socks double up as slippers as the rubbery parts make them non-slip but without adding any bulk. These socks do grip the floor really well and it means that I can even run around on the wooden floors at home and I won't slip.

                        I find wearing these Totes Slipper Socks are really comfortable and it is largely what I'm wearing around the house at the moment. They keep my feet warm and cosy and are very lightweight. They can be washed in the washing machine on a medium to low heat - and they actually wash really well. I have washed them know at least 15 times and they are not bobbly or worn at all.

                        Overall, I think these Totes Slipper Socks are a good buy and I would recommend them to a friend.

                        Disadvantages

                        A good alternative to slippers

                        These socks are really great to wear in the house as an alternative to slippers. They are thick socks which keep you feet nice and warm and they have the comfort levels of a sock that no slipper can match. The thing which makes these different to regular socks is the little pads on the bottom which grip on shiny floors such as tiles and laminate and stop you from slipping and sliding around. These little pads cannot be felt on your foot when walking around but you do notice the grip that they give you when walking.

                        Totes socks come in different sizes for men, women and children and they are available in a variety of different colours and patterns. They usually seem to cost around £3.50 to £5 for a standard pair and around £10 for the more fancy thick weave patterned varieties. Sometimes they are also available in packs of 2. As with all socks, they are washable. One slight disadvantage is that they can't really be worn outside i.e. to take the rubbish outside the same way proper slippers could be. However they are designed for the house so this should not be expected of them. In conclusion, these are warm, comfortable socks which grip shiny surfaces well and I would recommend them.
