I was a little disappointed to find out that these socks were seconds. I had not realized this when I placed the order and it was a surprise to me when I received the socks. It was not obvious to me when I was looking at the socks online. When I went back to look at the item page, all there was was a pretty inconspicuous link that just said "2nds" that you have to click on to actually find out what that the items are irregulars. Also, they have a big label printed directly on the socks themselves that say "irregulars", which I wish was just on the packaging or something not permanent. I'm sure the socks are fine, I just wish the vendor had made it more apparent that they are seconds.

These socks are very comfortable, great quality, and seem durable! Note that they have light cushion pads on the heel and the ball of the foot. These did not shrink as much as Icebreakers did in the wash. (I did not put either into the dryer)
