Nways, back to the socks, they are of regular length, and the color and size are designed to be unaffected by wash. As per the seller, they may look smaller after washing but stretch right out when you wear them again.

A Closer Look

The character socks are, surprisingly, cute and well made. At $15 for the entire set of seven, they are cheaper than buying individual pairs for each band member. In signature BTS style, the socks are bright and eye-catching, yet not over the top. The colors are vibrant and match the images uploaded by the seller. Each pair of socks has the BTS army emblem on the top and an animated BTS member, with his own cute expression. This is followed by the “BTS” name and the name of the band member in Korean. Different colors around the toes make them easy to coordinate with most outfits.

Every customer that has bought them has said that they fit well and don’t slip off the feet. The socks are soft, stretchy and comfortable. The material is thick, but not excessively so. It is breathable to ensure the feet get adequate ventilation. Even after several washes, the socks look as good as new. The quality of the fabric and construction, as well as the design details, are of high standard.

There are some minor issues with the images on the socks. Some of the looks resemble the band members when they were at the beginning of their career while others are more current. This may be a problem for ardent fans who are likely to be critical of such discrepancies. Some fans found it difficult to distinguish one band member from another. A few customers would’ve liked English names instead of the Korean ones printed on the socks. One buyer got only five pairs because the rest were out of stock.
