When I purchased these socks, I was afraid they would be just that - socks - but was thrilled after receiving them to find the foot/toes were reinforced with additional padding; they are far better than the combination of slippers and socks I used to wear!
These are really comfy. The description does not mention that these are fleece lined. They are not completely lined with fleece. Just up over the ankle so if you find wool to be itchy you may not like these. Fortunately I am not one of those people. I love wool.
