        Overall

        They are good socks, good material and comfy, but the seam issue is too much of a hassle for me to consider them even a decent sock.Don't buy.

        Performance

        I wore these socks during some pretty cold fall skiing. They were their "Midweight" sock and my feet got a bit chilly in the mid teens though.

        Design

        They felt nice, pretty damn comfortable.

        Value

        Considering they were two pairs for 37 dollars, they were pretty cheap. However both pairs only stood up to a days use before the holes showed up.

        Fit

        The socks fit well. i have a 12-13 shoe size and the L/XL (their biggest size) was a surprisingly good fit.

        Durability

        Both pair of socks, which I skied on on successive days, sustained holes where the toe seam unraveled. Even though these holes got sewed up, and i could probably return them for a different pair, or the money back, i was astonished at the low quality of the sewing.
