I bought these socks for my husband because his black socks always seem to get lost. I was looking for dress socks, but couldn't find any. I decided to try these. He didn't even open the package for weeks because they were crew and not dress, but when it started getting colder, he gave them a try. He absolutely loves them! Seriously, he wears them every day and had me get another pack of white socks for summer hiking trips. He says they are warm, soft, and thick which provides cushion since he is on his feet all day. He's been wearing them now for over 2 months and still talks about how comfortable and warm they are.
