These socks were a great deal, the elastic is strong, which has kept the socks up all day. The material is soft and smooth. I only wish there was more material or padding on the soles, though they do keep my footsies nice and cool. They are a little bit longer than most dress socks as these go up mid-calf. I got the Khaki/Brown Rib ones and the colors are nice. over all they are a good buy.
