I had hesitated to buy these because I was really looking for low cut, unobtrusive coolmax socks to wear with my STP sandals in an urban environment that doesn't seem hygienic enough for bare feet. I still think "warmth" when I think of wool socks. These are genuinely cool, though. When I put them on the weave is open enough that I still feel air circulating on my skin. I was also concerned that any wool sock thin enough to be so cool would not hold up with washing and wearing, but I've now washed these three times and they still hold their shape and stay in place on my feet. Don't know how they manage to perform that way, but they were convincing enough that I bought several more pair! These are now my favorite summer socks.
