Hermmm...I've worn these twice so far. Thought I'd sample the Aristoc version first, since a.) I like their stockings, and b.) of the better brands o' footsies, Aristoc has the best price.
The heels slipped off pretty much right away, and I speculated whether I'd spend the day treading on beds o' wrinkled footsie. But the slipped-off part of the footsie remained nice and flat under my foot. Overall they were comfortable, but if you'd wanted to cover your foot properly, you would have been disappointed.
It was a two-pack. :) Besides, I'd gotten a pair of grey micronets in the same order, and was perishing to try them out, and disliked the notion of a micronet-clad foot sweating alone inside a pump. No way! Bring on the footsies.
This time, I sussed the small end of the footsie belonged on your toes. It's a bit counter-intuitive, since the thing resembles a ballet flat, but you need only the tiniest edge of footsie on toes; it's the heels that need extra coverage.
This time, the left footsie stayed put all day. Round about quitting time, the right footsie heel began to sneak down. All in all, a positive experience.
I'm wondering now if sizing up would work better...less tension on the footsie, likely without much added bulk.
And I'm game to try Falke's footsies. Spendier, but almost pure cotton (the Aristoc are a blend), along with an anti-microbial finish.
