    I can't say they're that much more comfortable than ambidexterous ones but they're nice.
    They've felted down a bit so fairly solid now and none to sloppy.
    One pair Ive got is just a short size so only good for running or hiking shoes.

    Be a bugger to be putting them on in the dark in the hut and then find out later they are on the wrong foot.

    Once I was going out on a day hunt and got up extra early, didn't want to wake wife up as she had to get up at 4am to milk the cows anyhow, got dressed using my phone light and rolled round on the ground fumbling and kicking and muttering to myself trying to put my longjohns on untill I realised I was trying to squeeze into wife's yoga pants

    I bought a few pairs of these last year. Recently my darling wife observed: "You've got your sox on the wrong feet"...I answered: "They're the only feet I've got!"

    Assigning an orientation to socks isn't in keeping with modern thinking.
