The material is good, however the toe area is somewhat uncomfortable. Instead of tapering and cutting the leftover cloth, the toe portion of the sock is shaped like a mushroom. What you're left with is a bunching effect around the big toe and pinky toe when you're wearing any standard shoe. Alterations will be necessary for me to continue wearing these. I am disappointed. However, given the price, I guess it's another, "you get what you pay for."
