Functionally, these socks are great. They are comfortable, fit into the shoe, keep the shoe from smelling, and do everything else you expect a sock to do. My criticism is focused on the aesthetics. Firstly, I don't particularly like have the brand name across the ankle. I paid for a product. I am not getting paid to be a billboard. Second, the tab at the back looks a little funny. Thirdly, there is a definite different between right and left due to the seam, brand name, and formed heel. You can turn one inside out to become the other, but then it doesn't match (no brand, and the seams are very visible). That makes it necessary to actually look through and match the socks properly, which is a pain. It also means that if you lose two socks, you could now have two non-paired socks remaining.
Given all of that, I would have rated it 4 stars, except that I believe that they are overpriced, especially when taking those factors into account.
Update: I bought four socks (2 pairs). After only about 6 wearings, one of them developed a hole in the front of the big toe. I was able to patch it, but I expected more. I'll leave the 3 star rating, but barely.
