I specifically asked if these were made in China and the response I received said no. But guess what? They are, indeed, made in China. They try to fool you by saying “Manufactured under license from Saucony Inc in Winston, NC”. But in teeny weeny little letters on the pack of socks it says Made in China. I will be returning these. If you are like me and avoid Chinese made products you can cross Saucony off your list.
