I'm a sock guy but at first thought the price was a bit excessive; still, had to try them. Now own ever color. I love these socks. They're thick, soft, and insanely comfortable. I also love how they're disguised as a simple retro gym sock, but the quality is above anything i've found out there. Wear them for lounging but they'd also work for athletic situations. Am expecting these to last a very long time. I'm a 10.5 and the mediums fit perfectly. Great job with these!
