You put them on loose, and the warmth of your body (or on cold days, a hairdryer) shrinks them to a snug fit. Going through the wash slackens them again.

       Who needs to use blue nail polish with these on, especially when sitting by the fire.

       "One size fits all ..."

       Bi-metallic threads?   

       //"One size fits all ..."// - ah, so you've read J.R.R. Tolkein's poorly-received prequel, "Lord of the Socks"?

       You could use them for playing golf, especially if you had a hole in one.

       These can breathe, right? Otherwise I anticipate a problem...

       Not just breathe, they have a heartbeat and need to be fed. They're also extremely territorial about just whose feet can wear them. One thief who 'borrowed' a pair met with a grizzly end as the Heatshrink Socks, somehow feeling the injustice against their original owner, shrank all the way to a terminal case of deep vein thrombosis.

       How does one take them off?? (plunge feet into ice water?)
xandram, Dec 11 2015
  

       Post-shrinking, they should be no tighter than an ordinary sock. Ordinarily.
mitxela, Dec 11 2015
  

       OK, I'll bun this. I really don't like socks that stretch out and go down into my boots or shoes! +

       I like the design logistic specifying that the way to take them off is to put them through the wash.

       If we're going to make shrinkwrap sheep skin, why not make advances in far too loose sheep intestine technologies?

       Fourex fitting a little loose, [4and20] ?
normzone, Dec 11 2015
  

       Well, it's the twentyfourex, after the first twentythree sheep met their maker.
