I understand these socks, as with any clothing, may not be suitable for everyone. I have had mine going on a year and a half. They are worn almost daily all year long. They have withstood some abuse and washing machine washings. They show virtually no wear and they stay put as good as any crew. It is very rare if they do fall any while wearing, which is a problem I have with most crew socks, seeing how Im short & stalky built. My calfs tend to push them down. And being a merino blend, they can handle a little extended wear without smelling like a Dill pickle. ;)
I do wish they would offer an over calf or mid.
I just ordered another 3 pak, when I saw this new pricing. I did go up a size in hopes to gain a little height. Hard to beat them for this price, IMO.
