These are great socks. They compare with Thorlo and other high end brands. I have paid $16 for these at retail stores. Mind you, STP gets these as factory-seconds but the flaws are minimal, and STP stands behind them (as does Keen) so if one unravels, send it back! I get years of wear out of these, and I use them for work, hiking, and biking. They are cushy but not overly thick, and do offer good abrasion protection with hiking boots. They are not itchy at all, and he material is very high quality. I have a very large foot, somewhere between a 13 and 14 and the XL is a perfect snug fit. They do not slip or droop. They offer good ankle as well as foot protection. I wear them until they have a hole starting, usually at the ball of the foot, but that is years and hundreds of uses.
