While this didnt start out as my favorite pair due to the pale subdued colours, this was one of my first pairs.....and so the reason why now i own almost two entire collections! So, in a way, it is one of the pairs i am most fond of :). I started out trying to save them for the weekend, but quickly realized i need more pairs as i only want to wear these socks exclusively. So far i am getting through the hot summer with them as well....i am so glad my friend bot me a pair of these socks. Please never stop making them! I am planning on buying them for all my friends to get them hooked!
