I like that you can wear these socks all day and they keep your feet dry. They are thick enough to keep warm but also still let your feet breathe so you are not sweating like crazy. This also provides a little padding in the shoe. I love how the socks don’t fall down, they stay up, I don’t have to keep pulling them up all day. Since my husband is required to wear black sock he these are a great choice because he also has a habit of wearing down the heel of socks, he always gets a hole there first, but these socks are durable enough to last a while. I will definitely buy them again.
