I got these socks because I trust the Alfani brand at Macy’s. At first, I had my reservations because most of my dress socks fade, slide down when I’m wearing them for a long time, or develop holes rather quickly. These socks haven’t shown signs of doing any of these things. I’m especially pleased with the fact that these socks don’t slide down and are extremely comfortable without trapping heat or smells. Overall, I give this product 4/5 stars because I have not put them through the wash yet but I’m hopeful that I’ll be just as pleased. These socks are definitely worth buying!
