I've had these socks for a few months, and they're really nice. I can't stand socks that "grab" my ankles, so the relaxed tops on these are a nice touch. The fit is great -- I have big feet (size 11), and these fit perfectly. The colors of the peacock feathers are MUCH more brillian and intense than showing in the photo -- they really stand out against the black background. I've had lots of compliments on these. They wash just fine, too.
