As someone mentioned before, the coloring on these is pretty strange...a bit ugly, if you will. However, they're just sucks! The colored areas seem to be padded. I hand washed these and air dried the first time. The second time, I followed directions and washed warm and tumbled dry low. They shrunk. They still seem to fit but I can feel the slight difference around the ankles. Other than that, I have no complaints.

These are some of the best running socks EVER. The height is perfect to protect the front and back of the ankle from the cuff of your running shoes while not covering any more than they have to. The padding is in exactly the right places for running or walking. It's relatively substantial padding, but because it's so strategically placed, the socks fit a running shoe just as well as a very thin sock would (great for a shoe that doesn't have all that much room if you still would like padding). The best part is that they stay in place and never start to fall down into your shoe like so many other socks do. The size large fits a women's size 10 foot very well. It would probably fit an average 9-11.
It will still wick the moisture away and will dry relatively quickly when laid out. As socks are not waterproof they will still get wet and so will your feet. If you want to wade in water and be completely dry I recommend neoprene.
