These socks are totally adequate in every way. They aren't the greatest socks in the world and they certainly aren't the worst. You could wear them regularly while experiencing little-to-no discomfort. As I said, fully adequate. I wear them to such events as work, weddings, and other occasions that require dress socks. I can't think of many others off the top of my head. Since I always cover them up with "pants", I sometimes cross my legs so everyone can see that I am wearing totally adequate Kenneth Cole Men's Solid Flat Knit dress socks.
One last thing, why do dress socks slide down your calf? If you are a man, you know what I'm talking about. I know I have large calves, but it is very annoying to have to re-situate them. God forbid I show a little leg at work.
