Some of the thickest socks I've ever owned...
I recently turned 50 and for the past couple of years have been experiencing more foot pain from just normal walking around. I was tired of socks that were so thin that they offered no shock absorption/protection. What I found in my search was that there are not a lot of options out there. Most of the specialty socks available nowadays seem to be the ultra thin dry fit variety, thin blended variety, or overly cushioned wool socks that slide back and forth on my feet.
I guess everybody else buys inserts for this problem? I still prefer thick socks. Well this is that and more. They are so thick that I can't wear these with shoes that are extremely tight fitting. I wear these more with my hiking boots than anything. I wear a size 11 and they are great the first few weeks of wear. I recommend not drying these in a dryer if possible, as there is so much elastic for support that it can make them feel almost too compressing on your feet if they get too dried out. You can always halfway dry them, and pull them out early. I just urge to keep them feeling cushy that you not shrink them to where they are too small for your feet. They eventually stretch out, but as I purchased these for maximum comfort, I try to keep them feeling "newish" as long as possible. Normally soft, cushy socks offer no support, but somehow they have woven extra support into the foot so these do offer what those others lack in the front of your foot, where socks historically slide back and forth on your foot. And those other socks also have a tendency to compress greatly after wear because of loose weaving techniques and the material they are made of, whereas these Wolverine socks really hold up and seem just as thick after a year of wear as they did the day I purchased them.
