Not only are the socks highly comfortable, but they are also extremely convenient. The socks are easy to pull on, and are very durable thanks to the specific construction of the top seam of the sock. The heel is reinforced for a cushioning effect as you walk, and the finely ribbed design will fit effortlessly with any of your outfit.
