I've invested a lot in these K Bell Relaxed Roll Top socks -- I think I have a pair in every color offered -- and there's a good reason: They're the most comfortable socks I own. I can't stand socks that constrict at my ankles, which unfortunately is the case with most socks that have a band around the top. These, however, manage to stay up without a band -- no constriction at all. They really DO stay up, too -- they're just about perfect. These denim blue ones are a nice "dusty" navy blue -- like indigo denim -- so they go with almost everything. They wash nicely, with no sign of fading or shrinkage. Highly recommended!
