These like the others in my collection are the best socks I have ever found. Beautiful fit and comfort, durable. I still have my first pair when it was ll bean branded.
The price of these socks, retail msrp, is outrageous. Otherwise, good socks. Never pay 23.95. Good deal at $12 or less. You want to spend that kind of money on another brand like DT and even then, buy at a discount or don't buy.
Not only is this a great sock for hiking, but I love that it supports one of our NST's!
