The description is accurate. They are new, ( only washed & worn 2x), so I can not attest to there durability. Not overly tight on leg, (ie. no compression), but they stayed up all day and they dealt with my sweaty feet. I have not tried them in my rubber boots, but based on initial wearings, I think they well do fine.

I bought these for wear with my boots at work. I wear military-style boots and these are perfect. Comfortable, not too hot, not too cold. They make my feet feel super soft and I absolutely love it. Only thing is, they've got a little extra cushion on the bottom which makes them a bit thick which makes them a bit uncomfortable with tight-fitting shoes (like dress shoes) but makes them feel even more comfortable in my boots. This can be a pro or con depending on your intended use.

Bought the size large for my size 10.5 feet. These socks are a nice material but are way too tight. They feel like my feet are in a vice, and the tops cut into my calves. I would say order a size up, and only if you have very THIN legs. I gave them to my daughter. They fit her size 8 feet and she has small legs.

Most of my backpacking trips are in the summer when temps are above 75 degrees during the day. However, night time temps routinely dip into the 30's. Thus far, I've been happy using various Cool Max type synthetic blends and never considered changing. Just prior to our recent trip I saw these Merino wool socks on STP and decided to try something different. I'm so glad I did! During our week long trip in the Sierras I rotated through the Lorpens and my trusty Thorlo's. The Lorpens were COOL despite the 85 degree weather, wicked amazingly well, dried fast, and keep my feet much warmer during the cold nights. Overall, the fit was much more more comfortable and I'm amazed that they are so inexpensive. As far as being 2nd's goes, I cannot tell a difference at all and they've survived repeated washing with no loss of fit. Very highly recommended!
