I do love Primarni but the socks go all baggy. Where can I find the best socks, ones that are warm, comfy and stay up?

Uniqlo or m&s thermal socks are my favourite and they don't go baggy, have had mine probably longer than I should have .

I love Stance socks, particularly their trainer socks which are the only ones which don’t fall down behind your heel; and their ski style socks which are so warm and stay up well

Finisterre do 3 pairs of merino socks for £24, including fabulous stripes, that come in proper sizes:

I love wool socks so think they are good value.

I second Finisterre, I bought some after someone recommended them in another thread, and they are great quality. I have some merino and some cotton ones.

I used to buy Happy Socks, and the designs are great, but they only lasted me 3-4 months.

@SeaRabbit I have just had a look on your recommendation as I love wool socks too. They look good. I don’t anymore just now though, but will bear them in mind for the future. Have you bought other stuff from Finisterre and do they have good customer service?

@AnnieSnap, Finisterre’s customer service is superb. I havn’t got any of their socks, but I have a few of their other things.

Bamboo socks by Elle or sock shop are great.

Isobaa merino or Bridgedale. Both fairly expensive but both very comfortable and worth it for warm feet.

Another vote for Stance...they just fit my feet really well and don't slide down!

Thought socks are lovely - not cheap but thick cotton, long lasting and really nice patterns.

I had some bamboo ones from BAM and from Rapuni (who do amazing t/shirts and leggings) and they didn’t hold up very well…

Stance! They just fit so well.

Otherwise Nordic socks are nice and Monki glitter socks are lush!

I agree on both points

Search for Bamboo sox, I think it's Sox Shop. They are so soft and comfortable. Looks like they seem to be the vote all round.

Seasalt. They are good quality and come in a range of quirky designs, but they do plain ones too.

Browse the designer brands at TK Max. Quality pays, and I like padded sport sox but you can find all types for different uses. Check out the materials and make sure there is a good proportioon of natural fibres (wool /cotton) and maybe elasthane for grip; but avoid sox that are too tight.

If you want super thick socks, buy Heatholders from Amazon, I have peripheral neuropathy & Raynauds & wear Heatholders 24/7. They measure up at 2.4 tog.

@Nat6999 I do like heat holders. Their gloves and mittens are great too.
