These make your feet sweat buckets!
The vast majority of people read it as tongue in cheek comment. And topical. Saying what prices used to be is completely irrelevant if you need to buy something now. Past prices are not an indication of future prices unless of course you know something we don’t.
I'm sure it was in the past, but like me if you can wait then they are assuring us the price was £4.00 before and with amazon prices do go up and down so that is actually helpful to the people who can live without socks. The fact that your comparing socks to petrol is completely out of order and it can't be compared as one is needed for use everyday for cars and socks you won't need to wear them if you don't want to or there are cheaper ones out there. Petrol is expensive now but you don't have a choice if you want to drive, socks you can buy from anywhere even Poundland so some items can't be compared. It might be ideal for you to get (petrol-socks) that would be great for you and a new experience next time
Got 9 pairs of these and run between 50-70KM a week in then and they’ve been great. Only negative is my ankle tan lines are starting to show quite badly I don’t need anymore right now but if they drop a little more again I’ll grab a few more pairs
