I bought these for my mom and I after buying another brand and those socks getting holes within the month. She's usually a size 7 in shoes, and I'm a size 7.5 to 8. These socks have lasted three months so far, no wear and tear signs visible. Comfortable, not too thin or thick, and these actually stay on my heel way longer than other socks I have. Now they still do slip off from time to time, but these have proved to stay in place the longest out of the 5 brands I have tried so I'm sticking with these. The color is as shown in the provided image for the product and after what seems to be a million washes, it is still that color. I will be buying these again very soon.
