5.0 out of 5 stars Best pair of socks I've ever owned, military or civilian, January 16, 2011
By 
I have had 6 pairs of these socks that I've rotated and worn every single day (except for Sunday) for about 4 years now. Half as a joke, I even wear them with my dress slacks to work (I dress business casual at work), mostly because I've never really seen the need to buy other socks for work and these are so comfortable. I'm barely getting ready to rotate out 4 socks, so just 2 pair's worth, that have gotten holes in the side. If you look at the picture, you can see there is a sort of a seem that comes from the heel towards the ankle bone. That is the place where my socks have started to separate. I'm sure I could tell the difference in the padding if I put on a brand new pair of the same kind of socks, but from my current perspective, they seem like they haven't lost any of their padding or softness over all of the years. They are also awesome at controlling odor, which I assume is mostly because they wick the moisture away from your skin.

I bought my first pair towards the end of my first deployment while in Iraq in 2004. Being in the National Guard, after that I just wore them once a month at drill until 2007 when I went active duty to attend some military schools and then got deployed to Afghanistan for a year. Just before going to those schools is when I started wearing them Monday - Saturday. I still have that first pair from 2004, but couldn't tell you which pair it is for sure because they haven't faded or show obvious differences or anything. I also don't see them as being expensive since their function and durability have made them more than worth it, and I would normally have worn out SEVERAL other pairs of socks in the time it's taken for these socks to start to wear out. I am very active and go hiking, camping, etc, quite often so these socks definitely get mileage and stress. My favorite thing besides their softness is that they also don't slide down easily or leave pleat marks on your leg like military issue socks. Buy these and invest in a good pair of Oakley boots and you couldn't be more comfortable even wearing running shoes.
