Ok everyone listen up and listen up good. I take my socks very seriously. I have owned several kinds of socks from top brands such as, Carhartt, Under Armour, Nike, other "tactical brand" sock companies, you name it. This is the only sock that has met every expectation that I require in a sock. Thanks to these socks, after wearing my boots all day in the Southern California heat my feet are still dry. These socks provide cushion on all the high impact areas of my feet and the calf portion doesn't slip down. The only issue that I have with these socks is that I now am going to replace all of my crew socks with these and these socks are pricey. But like I said, I take my socks very seriously. 5 Stars!
