Rated 5 out of 5 by RCAR Perfect for winter in the South
These are really cute! The only thing that might be not good for some people is that they are pretty thin, so not a very warm pair of socks. But for me they're perfect! Get the cute look without overheating in a mild Arkansas winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by artsy080 wonderful over-the -knee socks
These socks provide warmth without the bulk. I would definitely recommend.

I love these and wish Madewell made these in more colors. They are essential for the colder months!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TMVW Lovely but barely knee high
I am almost 5'8'' and the socks only go over my knee when not folded, unlike the picture. So I prefer to wear them folded, below the knee since they just barely cover most of the knee when unfolded and don't stay up well. But otherwise they are beautiful socks and just what I was looking for, and I wear them all the time. I am considering buying another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by miko very cute, slips down leg
I really like the way the socks look. They are soft and fit well. I have trouble keeping them up over my knee though. They end up bunching up around the ankles, not flattering when they do that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kulahula Nice for a dressy look with high boots
I loved the idea of cozy over the knee socks to wear with shorter dresses and skirts during the winter, but I must admit I'm finding them difficult to incorporate into my wardrobe. At 5'8" I'm on the slightly taller side and these come only just above my knee which is a little awkward because of how it cuts my legs...I had hoped they would come further up my thigh so I could scrunch them. The height makes them look a bit strange with ankle boots (which is mostly what I wear!); however they look great with black tights and high boots. I think they'll work with chunky sandals too.
Don't be fooled by the merino wool content into thinking these are wooly warm socks - they are quite thin and on the dressier side. But still warm if you wear with tights, or will be good into the spring on their own.
I hope I can discover more ways to wear them!
