I was beginning to get resigned to the fact that I would have to throw socks away after a year or two, because they would just wear out. But these socks look like I just took them out of the package. I've had two pair for 3 years and they still look and feel like they're on their first day. I don't buy socks from any other manufacturer. They make great dress socks and running socks as well. Well worth the $$$.
