Oh, and much much easier than Chups. That was one of the things that attracted me to them most at SR, because I am fed up of fighting with my Chups after a few beers at the weekend.

That’s good news.

Glad to hear I’m not the only one that found Chup’s difficult to get on and off - will be grabbing some of these TL’s for sure!

I thought that Chup heel thing was part of the deal... I vaguely remember socks being like that when I was a kid I’ve noticed that the ones with less cotton/more wool are easier.

As much as I enjoy my Chups, “authentic vintage heel experience” included, I’m looking forward to something different.

It is part of the deal....But if I am in a hurry, Chup don't get a look in  :)

The struggle is real

I was meaning to ask about the Chup/Thunders Love comparison. I have multiple pairs of Chup. I have always liked their pattern design, but a year or so in, they don't last very well.

Older models have the heal issue, I haven't found that with the more elasticated recent models.

I need to give Thunders Love a go.

Anyone have any new opinions on this brand now that it has been a few years? Seems like they haven't been restocked for a few years now. How have they held up for people that own them? Worth trying? Thanks!

The ones I have had held up quite well, given their high cotton content. They are certainly very good looking, and comfortable to wear.
