I got these socks for the Beat Beethoven 5K. My socks were the hit of the race. Not only did I come in second in my age group, but my socks made the front page of the Paducah Sun. Oh, and the socks fit great. Wash well. And keep their crisp colors. I got asked a lot about where I got my socks, and I told them all Joy of Socks.com!
